    Pros

    OC pays you what you're worth and truly cares about their employees. The benefits truly are world class. Big on growth and career mobility, so they preference internal candidates for promotions whenever possible. Challenging job assignments and you get to work with a long leash (at least in a plant environment). Excellent job security--in such a demand-based production environment, OC tries really hard to ensure their employees are taken care of. OC is surprisingly agile for such a large company and change happens relatively quickly. Leadership capability is very strong and managers are talented and committed to developing employees for their next roles.

    Cons

    Work-life balance--managers could improve by setting an example in setting boundaries and helping employees do that for themselves. Culture can feel overly competitive at times but is headed in a positive direction, especially considering at the end of the day this is a manufacturing company. People move quickly and communication may be perceived by some as blunt or cold. People do truly care about each other, but someone who is sensitive to communication style may struggle to feel like they are connecting.

    Advice to Management

    Set an example for work-life boundaries. Focus on developing the "culture brand." We are good at communicating internally why we do the work we do, but others struggle to connect, especially the younger generation.

    Cons

    Management fighting and poor, if any communication undermine organizational goals
    Slow to hire, quick to fire
    some of the worst bullying between women and minorities i have seen, cannot get along with each other, a lot of big egos

    Expand the recycled talent pool, too many promotions from within of employees who hate each other

    Pros

    Part of a large organization.

    Standard Benefits.

    Strong industry.

    Cons

    Very Poor Senior leadership. Seem to only be looking out for themselves and furthering their own careers.

    Risk averse and slow to make decisions - not entrepreneurial. Does not promote loyalty to the organization.

    Not apt to listen to site level leadership for input on improvement ideas.
