Pros

Being in a union, we had great wages, plenty of overtime, business was good.

Cons

When business stopped, lay-offs were by seniority and the hard workers were the first ones to go. Upper management had no clue how we ran the plant.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management should dig deeper on how our plant worked instead of assuming.

    Pros

    Many talented people in the ranks and middle-management. Very committed, long term employees in Operations. Company takes care of its own.

    Cons

    Crony-ism. Leaders that fail are not replaced. Poor decision making or slow decision making has been costly. Company is no longer able to make critical investments in facilities and technology. Low-morale and lack of confidence in the future of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company needs new ideas from talented leadership outside of the company.
