    I have been working at Krones full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits for employees. A fairly friendly and laid-back place to work. Very stable job. Overtime opportunities. Good job for a CNC machine operator. Genuine concern for employee safety and welfare.

    Cons

    Remote corporate control of company policies leads to dissatisfaction among shop employees. Not enough disciplinary action for employees who repeatedly make careless and stupid mistakes. Pay caps limit employee incentive. Long time employees are resistant to change and have no incentive to care. They won't be fired, disciplined or rewarded. Not much company incentive for individual employees to overachieve.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more local control over department hiring and paycaps. Before deciding to initiate new programs and policies start with the lower (hands on) management to find out the best way to navigate and reach the goal while being inclusive of employees.
