    Pros

    Great pay, job opportunities, a lot to learn, fast paced, generous benefits, fantastic quality product

    Cons

    Culture is very poor, upper management seems very disconnected, 1st shift and 2nd shift are not treated equally, HR seems like they work against management than with management, training is severely lacking, disorganized to the point that it can sometimes be embarrassing. Office employees seem to come off as a clueless to what goes on within the manufacturing facilities. Too many inconsistencies.

    Advice to Management

    There is such great potential with this company, weed out the bad eggs and cut the red tape and allow those who want to grow have more of a voice.
