      Pros

      Fast paced, company willing to train outside of job scope if you're interested. Company training for the position is very thorough

      Cons

      Workload can be overwhelming, new employees are expected to cover accounts when other administrators are out of office. Tenured admins are not expected to chip in during staff shortages.

      Thankless Work, Good People

      Jun 6, 2021 - SMT Operator in Huntsville, AL
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Coworkers are usually good people who are willing to help you learn and stay motivated - Some of the food in the Caf is amazing - Very rarely they would have some sort of event for the employees - I worked under 2 supervisors in 2 different areas while at this plant; both were always supportive in the rare event that I needed to take time off or had challenges within my position

      Cons

      - Working with hazardous chemicals without being provided well-fitting PPE and a culture of acceptance to the risks this poses - Gossip, favoritism, and elitism at ALL levels - Person running the plant does not appreciate the employees. He called a meeting to announce, among other things, that they don't give raises. - Hostility and thinly-veiled threats to those who would "whistle-blow" - Wage inequality - The highest level of management does not like to spend money to maintain safety standards, the equipment you work on, or the facilities themselves - Extreme waste of materials, including throwing perfectly good old equipment away rather than donating it to a school or someone else who could use it - There's just too much to relate here. Basically, upper management makes things difficult for you to do your job safely, and the lack of support is felt at all levels through all positions in the plant. I won't bother discussing what that means for the actual job you do.

      Pros

      Strong IT coworker family works together to complete the needs for the company

      Cons

      Slow rise in salary compared to some companies but fair. Benefits have been better in past years but I believe that’s for many companies in AL after Obama Care was implemented.
