    Pros

    Plenty of work through maintenance services even after new car building has slowed down. Corporate really does care about things going right but at the plant level it can get petty.

    Cons

    Plant management and their planning can demoralize an entire workforce by giving unclear directions and moving goals to a point where you can't meet anything.

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic goals and hold the managers accountable. Setting unattainable goals are killing the plant's morale.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Strong company in Texas. Good benefits and very competitive pay. Chances for advancement.

    Cons

    Could let employees know further in advance on whether they are working weekends. Could use some more motivation and incentives for hourly employees.

    Hire more people from outside our industries to infuse fresh perspectives
