    I worked at Nummi as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Unique culture based on a synthesis of Japanese and American manufacturing concepts.

    Cons

    Not able to clearly define its own destiny, under tremendous pressure to perform in a remote and expensive location encourages managers to cut costs beyond what would ordinarily be considered humane. The escalator for example was deemed to wasteful of energy so employess now have to walk.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your workers.

    Pros

    Well the best reason of all was the pay. There was so many different opportunities to grow within the company. The 10 day plant closure during Christmas time with pay.

    The biggest downside was the overtime, when we worked the 10 hour days 6 day a week.

    Stop and talk to the production workers because a friendly atmosphere is good for production. People tend to work better when they don't feel intimidated by management.
