    Pros

    Supervisor's for the most part are fair and they take exception for employees needs.
    With the new PTO this will help with sick time, jury, and longer vacations.
    Letourneau has improved with the overall appearance as a whole.
    HR is on top of every employees complaint's and needs.
    Safety has improved and the workplace has become very efficient for the safety of every employee.

    Cons

    The pay could be a couple of dollars or more an hour.
    More heating could be provided down in the steel mill during the winter months. Employees are missing to many days due to being sick.
    Not enough incentives such as receiving awards, or cash, and gift cards for safety, not missing work, and ideas how to improve the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Offer employees the chance to send them to school for further education in their craft, don;t wait on the employee to make the move.
    Have company picnics, awards, and dinners to make each employee feel wanted.
    Run background checks every year to further rid out felons and trouble-makers.

    Pros

    We have a good benefit package. I love the new PTO system and the wages aren't bad. Most of supervision are good people and work well with the employees. Insurance is pretty good and 401K is good. Overall LTI is a good place to work even though we are going through some extreme changes, but seems going in the right direction.

    Cons

    We have a mangement team that is new, and most do not understand what it takes to be the world leader we are. They have never worked in this environment. They have put some supervisors inplace that don't have a clue. Unfortnuately it makes for some rough changes, these leaders have no clue and what to do. but we will keep trucking along.

    Advice to Management

    We know you are trying to do good and we actually support your endeaver but I have a question:( I have no experience in running an accounting department, I know nothing about HR.) Would you put me as a manager over them? I hope you would not, I would be lost and out of my league. So why would you put a non-trained or non-qualified manager over a department, that constantly puts employees in postions that they themselves are not trauned or qualified to do. Wht do you let them bring in a young TempHand with no electrical experience and try to have him do Journeyman work and alreadt has had to ARC flash incidents. Next time he could get killed. You gave us a LIABILITY, when you should have given us an ASSET.

    Pros

    Many of our coworkers are great guys to work with on the shop floor. Some cutting edge new machines are good experience. Still quite a few original Ole timer machinists left with a wealth of knowledge to share with those actually willing to listen.

    Cons

    management puts money over the value of their employees. Have seen more political moving working here for 6 years than watergate. Personal dislikes cause high unresolved tensions among management and behind the back dealings. Company spent good money to get top line machines only to cheap out on good tooling and software to actually use, instead they always go the cheapest route and will hold the employee responsible if their "rigging" doesnt work. some parts should be high precision but Letourneau main machine shop is a large un airconditioned barn with temps in summer in the 100s, with 2 10 minute breaks in a 10 hour day it gets hot

    Advice to Management

    drop the political moves and the higher holier than thou thinking and actually listen to the employees who will give you the actual un supervisor view of the way the company is running below the radar because quite frankly its in need of an overhaul
