        I worked at LaBarge full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Technology: Today businesses who have embraced technology have gained a competitive advantage in the market, technology can improve efficiency. If it automates its production line and installs temperature sensors and cooling facilities, it will deliver quality products in time. These temperature censors can be programmed so that they send information to the operator and they find out when the room temperature drops or...

      • "I feel badly for the good employees....they don't make enough $"

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I have been working at LaBarge full-time

          Pros

          You won't ever get fired if your attendance is good. You don't have to be good at your job to stay here...especially the office support/management.

          Cons

          No one cares about productivity...or accuracy. Not even a little bit. If your give a care is broken, this is the place for you.

          Advice to Management

          Get a clue....from the top down, if you expect the best, then you get the best....if you don't expect anything...then you are at Ducommun.
