Pros

Every other Friday off. People are nice.

Cons

Turnover is incredibly high. 4 Engineering Managers in 2012! Compensation is getting better but the salaries are lower than market. Salaries are determined by corporate and handcuffs the local office.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There needs to be communication within leadership and set some structure so that there is a system of accountability.

    Pros

    you will learn a lot of skills like lean manufacturing and strategy deployment even though they do not use it correctly.

    Cons

    Expected to work long hours with out any thanks or appreciation.
    Abusive tyrannical senior management
    Staff at the director level offer little to no guidance or assistance, just lots or scolding.
    Salaries are well below fair market value and the bonus structure has impossible targets to meet
    The senior management is not measured to the same targets they set for the plants which ensures they are bonus-ed.
    A system is in place to develop talent from with in, the system isn't followed through with and they will not spend money on higher education.
    The medical insurance has been significantly scaled back and dumps the costs on the backs of the employees.
    Old technology that people are moving away from resulting in continuous layoffs and shrinking markets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Live up to RT Crane's resolution don't just spout it off at every meeting and pretend to believe it, we all can see through it. Also start leading by example.
