    Pros

    The people are the best aspect about working here. Most everyone is pleasant and friendly. The pay is fairly good.

    Cons

    Antiquated systems, very unorganized processes, stale work environment, no diverse leadership (mainly white, conservative males). Overall, this company seems to be stuck in the past with a narrow mindset. They'd probably do well to get fresh leadership in there to truly move the company forward. Definitely not a place for younger people looking for an inspiring work experience but I guess considering the options in the area, this is an okay place.

    Advice to Management

    Get into the new millennium. Realize that if you treat your people really well, they're going to give back to you hundredfold. Look at other truly great and innovative companies and what they're doing in business and with their people.

    Pros

    Multinational Company with many opportunities for career development.

    Cons

    has a short termist tendency and reacts to adverse sales by cutting costs chasing low rates of labour and doesn't invest in product development when sales are good, preferring to increase dividends. Top heavy organisation with many VPs.

    Advice to Management

    slim down the management structure and invest more in R&D.

    Pros

    They used to be a great company to work for. Not so much anymore

    Cons

    You never know when you are going to have a job. They are not consistent in their rules (like 5S) and not everyone has to follow the same rules or gets fair treatment. If you work hard you don't get recognized by management, even when all the people you work with recognize it. They put heavy work loads on people because they have fired so many people. They make you do overtime and weekends when they have a budget to make even though they never make it, and it's usually the employees faults, according to management.

    Advice to Management

    You are top heavy, too many chefs in the kitchen. Boost moral even when letting people go. Get an employee of the month since you can't provide timely or meaningful raises.
