      Pros

      A great place to learn out of school.

      Cons

      Poor management from executives and unclear path of promotions. They often hire unqualified personnel to fill positions instead of promoting employees.

      Pros

      The team atmosphere used to be the best part of working here but management has found a way to destroy the morale to the point that nobody wants to be here any longer.

      Cons

      - Poor management - Deadlines are never met - Endless meetings - A constant CYA and finger pointing environment - Every employee is just a number. No one is treated with respect or humanity - Employees that do nothing are able to stay employed and be a drain to the team - Management is clueless - The working hours are horrendous - The parking situation sucks I could go on and on

      Pros

      Overtime pay for salaried employees is wonderful. They have decent benefits, good pay, decent computers, great cafeteria, and most of the people that work here are nice.

      Cons

      Poor management, intense workload. haven't had less than 50 hours/ week since my initial training. Facilities need a lot of work, and the roads are terrible. Most in management are angry most of the time, and blame gets thrown around say Engineering a lot

      Pros

      All the skill and talent people who know enough about this company have quite. Looking for a better place to work.

      Cons

      Poor Management! No clear communication, leadership is too busy worry about cover up rather than fixing the real solution. Too many cover up! Bad quality! This company is constantly looking for escape goat And finding way to cut cost by hiring cheap labor from India with no skill once so ever.

      Pros

      Lots of hands on experience with various manufacturing methods. Cross training into other engineering disciplines. Due to high turnover, movement into a lead position or management can happen rather quickly.

      Cons

      Really poor corporate culture (very bottom line based decision making). Poor management, especially in the upper tiers of management. Poor company vision and very restrictive cash flow management.
