    Pros

    Company has been around since 1971, so it has a reputation of longevity.

    Cons

    Management is kind of screwball in that the atmosphere of the plant operations is considered "Controlled Chaos" from sales to engineering to manufacturing to delivery. I was told, rather vehemently, by someone training for management, that I would never change the system of doing things. This after I raised a complaint about how the order of things done in engineering were like putting the cart before the horse.

    The company seems to have a revolving door of people getting hired and then quitting because they can't take how management runs the business, and their attitude toward their employees, especially women; the business is owned and run by Eastern Indians.

    Also, their is no guarantee that you will be properly and completely trained to do your job. This was my situation.

    Advice to Management

    Do everyone a favor and close the business, because you're angering everybody off.
