    Good environment to work in, people are generally friendly and helpful.

    I worked at Gentex (Michigan) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good medical benefits and some cool people.

    Cons

    Where do I even begin. Pretentious management. Incompetent managers who lie constantly and never stick to their word. Lots of people right out of college who have never had jobs and have no idea how to organize or motivate a group. They don't fire anyone who is aggressive or dangerous instead they move them to a different building to indanger others.
