    Pros

    Good Pay, Great Benefits. Hard work and a positive attitude pays off in great results.

    Cons

    Hours are non-flexible. Lots of negative co-workers. Leadership worries more about answering to those about them than those below.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Take an interest in what the front line employees are accomplishing. Give credit to the hard work the hard workers give.

    Pros

    Many. I left a union job to work there. They were safer than the union job, had better benefits and paid a lot better for easier tasks. Also more and better advancement opportunities. Lots of chances to work OT. I wish they hadn't sold us to another company.

    Cons

    In my case a very long drive made the 12 hours shifts very hard. The insurance companies were't real great, especially the one that handled medical leave and stuff like that. Sometimes too much OT. Now the plant is sold to another company that isn't as concerned with safety.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of contract with Sedgewick. If can, do a different medical insurance company. Other than that its great.
