    I worked at Modified Polymer Components full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great training skill because they will work you like a slave always pushing and learn how to used multiple equipments at the same time.
    Eventually, those are your benifit at another company because you already know everything here.

    Cons

    Upper management corrupted ever since company sold to BMS. They always bragging we made more than millions each months and all because of our hard work, promised bonus but saw nothing.

    Favoritism for family members, higher pay with no experience and slow to catch up in training compare to other operators.
    Promised too much deliver nothing,unable to accept the truth when we spoke our mind.

    HR never kept conversation a confidential, as soon as you walked out the office 1hrs later the production floor knows already.
    That is the reason why there aren't any complaints to HR or upper management but only amongst operators.

    Hard working people did not get recognized or higher raised, unless you suck up to them or have family member work in higher position. You could make as many mistakes as you like and not get fire .
    They would laid off hard working people with years of experiences and kept their family members with "limited" thinking skill.

    Never know how to boost up operators spirit, we work hard but barely get any treats from the management. If we have any luncheons that still be potluck not paid by the company.

    They treat themself for office people and only bring us the left over that they couldn't finished, and thinking that they have been generous already.

    We missed The Taylor's family. The owner he would personally bring us our checks every 2 weeks and thank us by name.
    Company picnic and Xmas party each year.
    Not to mention he gave us $100 cash if the company make profits.
    We love him not because of all these ,but because we all could feels that he cares about us.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair ,learn to accept the truth,and deliver what you promised.

    "Low Paying"

    Pros

    The company works on interesting things. Management listens to production suggestions sometimes. You can ask the president any question. They match some 401 K and give standard PTO.

    Cons

    The pay is very low. The raises are insult. There is no room for advancement. No real objective. The boss brags often about how well "we" are doing. Some people work for five year and not have review.

    Advice to Management

    Start system of bonuses. Give goals to workers to work harder for more money. Do a profit share or something.

    Pros

    Given charge of high value projects, project management experience, full concept to manufacture exposure, cutstoner interface, exposure to management

    Cons

    Management has very little direction, always focused on numbers at the end of the month (last 3 years I've been here), pay is at lower bounds of what is acceptable, NO opportunity for career growth --- I.e. You'll likely be in the same position regardless of how much effort you put in, don't feel as a valued team member unless they need something done, unbalanced work load, management reluctant to give raises --- which is why all the core engineers have left,
