    This is a great company to work for. The people get along for the most part and the pay and benefits are higher than most.

    Plant Management too lean for the amount of work expected.

    Pros

    Middle management willing to work with you to get your career on a good track.
    Pay reflects the work done.
    Most of the work is interesting.

    Cons

    The corporate office seems out of touch. They were working on it when I left with quarterly meetings but they seemed rather forced. They weren't bad and seemed to value their employees, just had trouble communicating. Also, didn't commit to long-term programs. Always changed after halfway starting one.
    Hours can be long when deadlines are approaching.

    Advice to Management

    Commit to changes, don't start and stop so many. It's happened with training, software, and engagement programs. Analyse their effectiveness before investing in them.
