      Education Means Nothing

      Nov 7, 2014 - Professional Position in Norfolk, NE
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great pay for those who work production. Production bonus allows individuals who don't even have a high school education to make six figures a year. This is a highly respected company in the area. Small employee incentives like profit sharing, insurance and educational assistance are very good. Low management structure and the ability to make decisions at the supervisor and manager level are rare in this type of industry.

      Cons

      Education doesn't mean anything. Those who work tradiitional professional roles (Engineers, Human Resources, etc) and have worked hard for a degree are paid half of what production roles pay.The company hires most professional roles straight out of college due to pay and lack of negotiation on benefits. These professionals work for the company for awhile until they get some experience and go elsewhere or move into a production role. Don't be expected to be listened to if you aren't at the management level either. Communication and decisions are made without consulting those who will be affected the most. Laziness is not addressed and the solution to this is to hire more people. This is killing Ken Iverson's vision.
