    A lot!! Just a poor operation from start to finish! No foresight for business management! Bad hiring practices! Lack of training of employee.

    Advice to Management

    Change your hiring practice to attracting quality employee from top to bottom.

    Pros

    many good, friendly and intelligent employees. Have some good ideas that could become great products with the proper direction from management.

    Cons

    Upper management is completely clueless, especially in the Kansas City Plant. The Plant manager is incapable of listening and understanding what he hears. Continually plows through with some half baked ideas without understanding what the employees are trying to tell him.

    Advice to Management

    REPLACE the Upper management and HR in the KC plant.

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility is good in most departments. They will work around classes and family obligations.

    Cons

    Mismanagement, no vision or direction, no upward mobility for increased pay/responsibility

    Advice to Management

    Manage and interact with your departments. Increase transparency through effective communication. Acknowledge and reward employees that contribute and work hard.

    Pros

    Nice people, dedicated workers. Weekly meetings keep you informed and the product they produce is a decent machine and is selling well.

    Cons

    Big division between departments. System for documentation and communication are just horrible. Takes 10 extra steps to things done. Can be frustrating to feel any accomplishment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring so many temp workers and pay your employees better, the ones who work hard anyway. Its hard to work as a team otherwise

    Pros

    The employee's and management were great people to work with and very helpful to new employee's no matter what level..

    Cons

    The Senior Manager's of the company were not very good at managing their business. I think they could do a much better job in reducing cost helping the company to be more profitable.I saw alot of wasteful spending as a former Sr. Manager.

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate suppliers and providiers, look at your spending in ALL areas-reduce waste.
