    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at OXEA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Competitive pay, good 401K match, relocation benefit makes the move to Bay City painless as possible, many good coworkers.

    Cons

    No clear vision for the site from plant management. Obvious favoritism to those that are willing to brown nose. Limited growth opportunities for people as management more concerned with rumors than future of site. Hypocritical culture that says one thing and then actually does something else. Site leadership rarely goes into the plant and gets its information and makes most decisions from gossip.

    Advice to Management

    Look at what is going on at your sites that are not in Germany. There are many good people at the plant; unfortunately, most are looking for other jobs because of the fear-based environment and uninspiring leadership. Fill positions with people that have qualifications to hold them.

    I worked at OXEA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not very many to speak of only that they don’t expect much from their employees so they usually just loaf around all day. Might be a Con but hard to tell.

    Cons

    Don’t pay good. Small company so they have nothing better to do thaN gossip about employees they don’t like. Management is green. They cater to employees with issues like being on drugs, they allow some to get away with anything if they are in the click. Not very profitable at least where I was at. Green employees all around with no real expertise.

    Advice to Management

    Need to go by the book instead of managing off the hip. No one takes the lead but look to everyone else to make decisions. Start following plant polices and procedures instead of inventing them daily.

    Pros

    we stay on our phones, watch movies/sports on computer, & sleep when ever possible.

    Cons

    if your not a young guy, you will not move up in this company. They choose on how hard (3 levels) of testing an will employee get, favorites get easy ones non-favorites get the toughest. Favorites will the easy ones.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to open their eyes and watch what your other mangers are doing. You are have ideas what are happening in your areas, one manager is preparing a nasty take over. Good luck
