    Pros

    YOU have a Job, unless there is a Shut Down, but you wont know that until a few days before.

    Cons

    Poor Mangement engagement. Low morale due to lack of communication. No incentive for employees to excel. Management is always on edge due to production goals from corporate. Management has no idea how work affects the culture and morale, therefor there is such high attrition rate. There seems to be an elitist and arrogance bug amongst senior management. Will seldom talk to regular employee. VERY DIFFICULT TO MOVE UP or TRANSFER due to low staffing. Everyone is replaceable.

    Advice to Management

    McWane Ductile- The Mcwane way....All work standards revolve around product and quality, nothing mentions the TEAM or TEAM Members.

    Pros

    Good people in the lower echelons.

    Cons

    No culture - Short term view and only focused on financial results - People and infrastructure are after-thoughts or not considered - The corporate sr. managers have created an environment of "US-and-Them" - Only select few are allowed inside the leadership circle and the rest are kept out. Not open to outside views or new ideas. If you consider yourself a professional and want to join a progressive company, this would not be a good environment for you.

    Advice to Management

    Success is not measured only by financial results.
