    Pros

    Paid holidays
    Paid vacation
    "Decent" medical insurance
    401K

    Cons

    *Poor management
    *Lack of team work
    *Poor communication between management and employees
    *Quantity is before quality causing numerous product sorts
    *Utilization in employees is a joke, some departments have to many people doing nothing while others departments are having to call people in early to help when the ones standing around are qualified to do the job.
    *If you don't "brown nose", "suck up" or have family/friends in management you will NOT climb up the ladder.
    *Speaking to management about problems are a joke unless you're one of the "favorites", if not, you might as well be talking to a wall, it will listen better.
    *Can't pay their bills which causes production problems with getting material in the plant, Equipment (forklifts) to do the job safely and properly or getting the employees their vouchers for safety glasses/steel toes so employees are having to purchase these things out of their own pockets.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out of all management needs to be done, to many that are friends. Management (salary) shouldn't be friends with employees (hourly) on social media, hanging out at bars, clubs, ect. this could cause problems if there was ever a lawsuit to arise.
    If management isn't replaced there needs to be major in-depth training on how management is supposed to act towards employees and their specific job duties other than playing on their phones.
