    Pros

    Pay is okay for the current job market though some positions off the production floor pay more in other factories in most areas.

    Cons

    It's ran by all males with big egos and once again no one wants to do anything and everyone blames someone else or goof off. Thats all management does, its like working with a bunch of teenage boys.

    Advice to Management

    See my con list. Professionalism and monitoring of department managers.

    Pros

    They take great care of their workers with many incentive programs.

    Rotating shifts are hard to get use to. It also feels like you're working in a prison with no Windows to look out.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the management team are great. Just a few bad apples.

    Lots of opportunity to make a difference in the business from the bottom up

    Keep working towards the vision you've shared!

    Pros

    Excellent compensation, great culture, global travel and responsibility opportunities

    Heavily managed from a financials perspective. Focus is on sales but message is "organic growth". Resource restrictions often limit ability to do both and sales always win.
