    Pros

    Industry isn't very exciting but great place to work otherwise. Decent compensation and fantastic work life balance. Solid leadership.

    Cons

    Reporting into parent company / "Big Brother". Lot's of "reporting for the sake of reporting". Ineffective / weak employees manage to fly under the radar. Slow decision making process...too many levels of approvals.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward strong performers. Weed out the weak ones.

    Pros

    Always there to help and offer advice.
    Excellent maintenance crew for all shifts.

    Cons

    Lack of maintenance help on night shifts creates more downtime, which in turn reduces productivity.

    Advice to Management

    1. Hire another night shift mechanic.

    2. Have operators train with a mechanic for a period of time. In doing so, I believe this will improve the operators ability to diagnose and resolve mechanical issues on thier machine.
