    Pros

    Really the only thing even remotely nice about this place is some of the other employees are pretty cool.

    Cons

    Added other jobs and expected 1 person to keep the whole nasty place clean. Offices, conference room, bathrooms, trash, lunchroom, then added windows, cigarette butts,parking lot, weeding,...this company wants team work yet refused to hire on to company cause of a past worker that had nothing to do with me or the job I was hired for. I went and above and beyond and glad I'm not on this team...

    Good Company but Struggles with Good Management

    Aug 17, 2021 - Plant Engineer in Carlstadt, NJ
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There are hundreds of people who have expertise in many fields and are always willing to help a fellow coworker when needed even if they have never met you before.

    Cons

    Expected to cover 3 or 4 peoples worth of work and to be paid for 70% of the going rate for one of those jobs. Depending on location you will either have managers who are competent and can easily support you or you will be left to your own devices and expected to perform despite not knowing what direction to go towards. Expect to stay late, come in early and work on weekends at the drop of a hat. Expect to be talked down to when you take time off due to being sick or for vacation. Expect to be misinformed or not informed at all about company policies.

    Management IS the problem

    Jul 14, 2021 - Maintenance Electrician in Marysville, MI
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Decent pay, easy enough work- primarily drives and PLCs.

    Cons

    You will be working 6 days a week. You will do electrical and mechanical work. You will not take time off in your first 720 hours-or you will be fired. The reason for taking time off is inconsequential. 1970s management style, reprisals, and middle management incapable of defending their decisions to upper management, and instead, passing their consequences to employees. Supervisors will "beat their chest" as another electrician put it, which translated to, threatening to fire me for taking one day off, that I asked for in advance for an appointment and both supervisors agreed would be fine. After that, reprisals were hardly subtle. Scheduling is a mess, planned maintenance is effectively nonexistent, and down time between repairs will mostly be spent wandering around the plant, because the maintenance shops are for work and breaks only. There are 3 breaks, which maintenance follows as closely as production, 8a-4p shift - 10 minutes at 10am, 15 minutes at noon for lunch, and 10 minutes at 2pm.

    Micromanagement

    Jun 17, 2021 - Accountant in Sarasota, FL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Salary is decent and there is a bonus if you last a full year. Benefits are good but be aware of the vacation policy, 3 wks of vacation sounds great but that's only if you're given the opportunity to use it and if you can really disconnect for the time off.

    Cons

    Micro-manage is taken to a whole new level here, you can not even change a color in a spreadsheet because the reviewer just doesn't like change. Your work is reviewed by 2-3 people who nitpick on things that don't even add any value to the content. Training is minimal and if you ask questions it's a sign of weakness. People in "managerial" roles (not upper management) are on some kind of power trip, they like to abuse their title and position to put the fear in you. People are nice to your face but talk behind your back; phony smiles. The interview process is brutal, it could take up to 4-5 weeks plus a personality test and assessment. If you do get called for an interview, be sure to ask how many times the role has had turnover in the past 2 years. No one has lasted in my role for more than 6 months.

    Most people are friendly. Nice office.

    Company is very top heavy, not much room to move up. Microaggressions are very frequent. Beware of this if you are a person of color.
