    Pros

    Nice , friendly , cozy environment. Good old mentality of a family.

    Cons

    Latest merger caused by financial problems. No information yet on how mentality will change. But first steps are obvious cuts, cuts, cuts

    Pros

    laid back management approach, good HR group

    Cons

    upper management only concerned about making money, quality only looked at when customer complains. lots of issues, no one dives into the true reason, just provide something to the customer to pacify them. Lip service to the company values.

    Advice to Management

    Look at all functions of running a team, not just how much money the facility is making.

    I worked at Wallenius Wilhelmsen full-time

    Pros

    I worked second shift and there is a lot of mandatory overtime. You get paid overtime for anything over 8 hours a day. It adds up fast. My first week there I had 20 hours of overtime alone. You get paid every week and the pay is pretty good for an entry level role. I made close to 650 a week after taxes and benefits are decent.

    Cons

    You will be treated like a number. I guess this is typical manufacturing stuff.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like human not dogs.

    I really liked working here. You have a chance to meet and get to know people at all levels of the company. You get to have a work life balance. You are challenged but not to the extreme. Generally, people care.

    Not lots of opportunity for movement or growth.

    Pros

    If you like slaving your time away and working almost every day of the week, then this place can make you some money

    The management was more bosses than leaders. Some the employees were cool, but there was some bad fruits in the garden

    Advice to Management

    I got nothing... Lost hope... Things changed
