      I have been working at Shurtape Technologies full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Excellent supervisor and support staff. Great learning opportunities and overtime if desired. Fellow employees are very supportive of one another, which means a lot in such a physically demanding work environment.

      Cons

      The company has recently transitioned to twelve hour shifts at all plant locations. This has become a popular manufacturing trend. However the required duties are very demanding physically. It is very easy to wear yourself out and/or develop an injury.

      I have been working at Shurtape Technologies full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Awesome co-workers who make going to work fun!

      Cons

      Upper Management change a few years back has killed the morale of the folks on the production floor, causing the good people to leave and the unmotivated ones to be even more unmotivated. Too many "temps" on the production floor which has hurt productivity.

      Advice to Management

      "Stick" with some of the fundamentals that made the Shurtape name respectable. I'm all for constantly trying to get better but to what end? If you lose your folks on the floor then at the end of the day it doesn't matter what type of system you put in place.

      I worked at Shurtape Technologies full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Production environment workers were always fun to be around. The environment fit that of the area. Being in a small town made the work environment feel more like a family. Most employees were easy to get to know and made the work environment very friendly. If you know how to fit it with the type of people you are working with it can be a great experience.

      Cons

      Location was not the best. If you are from the area it is great, but being from out of town it was not idea. Depending on the department and work site there was a lot of micro managing and unnecessary bickering between employees.

      Advice to Management

      People are you best asset. Invest in them and they will invest in you in return.

      Pros

      Global, innovative, customer oriented. A good company and used to have good family values.

      Cons

      Too many changes during the past several years as well as their acquisitions. Used to have good family values. Difficult to trust people in the organization.

      Advice to Management

      Do not gossip or use defammation of character on present or past employers from earning a living. Difficult to trust people.

      I worked at Shurtape Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Young management - care about physical well-being and work/life balance. Capable, but small, R&D group. Trying hard to be progressive in the product arena.

      Cons

      Don't have the resources to compete fully with 3M.

      Advice to Management

      Broaden the product offerings.

      Pros

      Room to advance. Overall, not bad a place to work for.

      Work with people more when they enjoy working there but family is number one priority as it should be.
