    Pros

    Local management is good to work for

    Cons

    US Corporate management does little to attract top talent. Pay for hourly manufacturing is behind competition. Little benefits beyond medical & 401K.

    Average production line company

    Pros

    Most of the people who work there are nice. You get decent pay and benefits. Work is very easy once you are trained and they leave you alone for the most part as long as you get the job done by the end of the day.

    Cons

    Not really much room to grow. A lot of the times they don't teach you any more than what you need to do bare minimum job so if there is an internal job posting you will most like not get it since you don't know anything else other than what you are doing now. I found most days I am bored out of my mind. Also there is only one person working per shift and if another person is sick and takes PTO you are kind of required to do overtime and if you refuse they will put a point on you and if you get a certain amount they could fire you. Oh and there is always a feeling of doom and gloom because they let so many people go few years back and right now they are running with a skeleton crew. If you don't do you job 100% every single day you may be subjected to layoffs or just straight up getting fired.
