    Pros

    Plenty of parking spaces available.

    Cons

    Employees are being watched constantly on camera. The owners are mean and arrogant. Management is incompetent. Owner treats HR Generalist as her personal errand boy. The "manufacturing engineer" is always spying on the assemblers. He sets his computer every morning to the employee master list to see who comes in late or calls out sick. He then reports this to management even though he has no authority to do so. The machine shop foreman is lazy and is usually sitting at his desk looking at his computer. Employees work in total silence. They are not allowed to talk to each other unless it is for business reasons. Turnover is extremely high. In the year I worked there, I personally counted 46 employees that were either fired or quit. Do yourself a favor, do not even consider working for this poor excuse of a company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop buying buildings and use it to pay your employees a decent wage. Instead of buying useless properties like Villa Augustina in Goffstown, spend the money to upgrade your outdated equipment.

    I worked at Rdf Corp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You might work with some nice people, and they keep the restrooms clean. The company is in New Hampshire for what that's worth.

    Cons

    The company does not understand how to run a professional workplace that attracts and retains talent. It seems every decision on policies was made with the goal of creating an undesirable employee experience. Salaried employees are treated like they are hourly; they use time clocks and have little/no schedule flexibility. Benefits are not competitive, and vacation is well below industry norms. No cell phones are allowed in the buildings, and personal email or Internet usage is not allowed on the computers. If you've worked for a modern manufacturing/engineering company, you'll find Rdf outdated in many ways. Also, there are very few places of interest that you can get to during lunch break (timed), and commuting access from the west is not great due to the bottleneck over the river and through Nashua.

    Advice to Management

    Create a much better working environment, or people with a choice will just keep leaving.

    I worked at Rdf Corp full-time

    Pros

    I really can't think of any

    Cons

    Worst company structure I've ever seen. You have a director of operations who needs to have her hands in everything. In her eyes, nobody can do anything right, and she's sure to tell you that (almost always in front of other people). The owner is a tyrant. She's constantly calling people into her office to scream at them. She has the HR manager running her errands (getting gas for her, making her hair appointments, etc). They do whatever they can to take away any vacation or personal time you've earned, and constantly create new policies in order to take it from you. This was probably the worst place I've ever worked. Do yourself a favor - stay far, far away from them!

    Advice to Management

    Start trusting your people and treating them with respect. Your employees need to know that they're valued, otherwise the revolving door will keep spinning.

    Pros

    Keeps you busy enough, you do not feel board

    Cons

    No ethics, no proper rule or regulations, employees's dignity does not exist, management style my way or high way.No opportunities to grow in the organization, lack of trust and lack of professionalism, worst place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are assets of the organization, trust them and give them space to breath. Let them grow them in your organisation that way low turn over rate is less cost and more profit.

    I worked at Rdf Corp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    From what I had seen with other employees, they are ok with you dealing with personal issues and taking care of those important things.

    Cons

    Very bad compensation that is not in the least bit competitive. The culture is made up of people that feel like they haven't achieved anything so they have very little to offer other employers and feel stuck. Get the feeling like they don't care about anyone or seeing people grow into success

    Advice to Management

    You need to spend money to make money and invest in what makes you different than your competition

    I worked at Rdf Corp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are reasonable. The work is challenging and allows for some growth. Being out of my comfort zone allowed me to learn three programming languages. The company culture is fun.

    Cons

    The biggest con has to be lack of project management. They gave me a project and than switched it after a week. So the big projects were pushed to the side and replaced with bigger ones. When the projects were complete they didn't like the result because they didn't manage the project.

    After a year they looked for a reason to get rid of me because of their poor project management policies. I was offered no help in the project. The project was mathematical in nature using temperature equations that I didn't understand. Trying to get someone to explain them only made it harder program the project.

    Advancement is non existent. You have a year and than your gone. I was lucky and stayed two before the stress became too much.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a project and stick with it. If you are going to do a project, plan it with person. Carefully explain the goals and than keep an eye on it in detail. Listen to the employees if they say that need a resource and there is no one helping.
