    The cons to working for this company are very few. Although there are cons this is still a wonderful place to work. Con number one is the union dues they take out your check on a monthly basis. Con number to is the humidity within the work place.

    My only advice to uppermangent is too pickb the right person for certin areas within the work place.

    Pros

    A U.S.A. company making product by Americans. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Low wages (hourly). Decision making that affects the floor level with no input from the floor level. A typical U.S. corporate mentality that if it looks good it is good, rather than making sure it is good.

    Advice to Management

    Start communicating with the floor more to get a better sense of how decision making could affect productivity.
