    Pros

    Great engineering company with futuristic approach. Work life balance is great. Very good health insurance plans at competitive contributions.

    Top heavy company. Regional management taking a down turn. Progress room is very stagnant if you are looking to be a manager. HR isn't that helpful (like any company).

    They need to walk the talk and be more inclusive with shop floor.

    I worked at Sapa Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Was a maintenance tech in Phoenix. All the OT you want and no time to spend it. Plenty of hot areas to help you sweat off the weight.

    Cons

    Managers worried about their bonuses. PM's that are done half way. Repairs that are done hap hazard and with no thought except "get ur done". Constantly told that we are over budget and no pay raises. Some of the guys there have not seen a pay raise for years.

    Advice to Management

    I would cut the top off and change the attitude of the run at all expense attitude.
