    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good money. F1 experience. Helps your cv look good. Nice if you like working in old school factory environment.

    Cons

    Working with incompetent people. Management has no interest in employees and treatment is not good. Whole company is run as if it is a small factory. CEO told in 2013 that the biggest asset of the company was the building (not the employees)

    Advice to Management

    get rid of the managers on fat pay. You will save a fortune. Stop favoratism.
