    Pros

    Ample opportunities for growth along with plenty of projects "in need" to make your positive mark. Great people, exposure to further broaden your plastics injection molding experience and knowledge in the field of Automotive! IAC is highly visible and awesome on the resume. Great and generous Compensation pkg to include generous relocation services! !!

    Cons

    High Priority : improvement greatly needed implementing 5s, Lean mfg, the upper mgmt including Supervisors appears to have a revolving door so that desperately needs to be addressed, along with well-Below Housekeeping standards and expectations. Otherwise, great plastics mfg. Go for it!

    Advice to Management

    I would advise Corporate to PRIORITIZE investigate and determine the ROOT CAUSE of of such a high turnover in management at Springfield, TN plant , OWN IT then develop the action plan to higher RETENTION RATE of mgmt. You've lost some good guys who wanted to stay, yet something just isn't right or I'd love to still be there making a positive impact.
