    Pros

    A team engaged work environment.

    Cons

    The threat of being laid-off, position elimination, or job outsourced to India.

    Many of the women in middle management rely on old school management techniques (20th Century) that ensures employee disengagement versus the more modern 21st Century techniques that fosters employee engagement. Women in upper management use the 21st management techniques, and consequently obtain employee engagement. The women in upper management are very effective, and ensure a good work environment.

    Pros

    Pay is good.... benefits are ok.

    Forced overtime is a way of life here. If you work less then 60 hours a week it's a miracle. As an hourly employee your opinion doesn't matter. Do as your told and don't make any suggestions.

    Hire maintenance people and treat the ones that are here better. Listen to your employees we want to see the company succeed.
