    Pros

    Many great people to work with, nice facility with lots of parking. Could be a fun place to work if Quality department management team did their job.

    Cons

    Poor management and quality.
    Management only know how to blame and retaliate yet does not know how to make decision and solve problems.

    Quality department are unorganized and unprofessional who shows lack of integrity and operate by tampering data. Hr department need proper training.

    Advice to Management

    Stop sitting at your desk to waste time and be accountable for mistakes. Don’t just sit there and wait to retired, manage your team properly and do your job!

    Company encourages employees to advance and move to different departments if they wish. Good work-life balance.
