      Probably the most dysfunctional place you'll find....

      Pros

      You'll find a few great people who get dumped on daily by yourself or upper management, but then you'll feel absolutely awful as the bottom level manager as you force unrealistic expectations upon them in a unbelievably dysfunctional environment. The only thing that flows "down stream" here is problems and denial/deflection of responsibility. But yeah, some of the people are nice. It just gets to a point where it's sad to look at them daily as you know how worthless the management above you makes them feel.

      Cons

      environment in all aspects. management structure. ability to productive solve solutions to ending goal of full stream production to assembly. Lack of ability to identify leaders and especially, the leaders who literally do nothing on a daily basis. Overloading of expectations and responsibilities, especially when the plant manager "gets on" the value stream managers for not doing a thing then the vsm's create more unnecessary work/procedures to "make them look better" when in fact it reduces the ability to perform in multiple ways (i.e. natural production, employee moral, forced overtime, etc.). Horrific work conditions. The sewage systems need an overhaul as there is backflow that fills the cafeteria spaces...yeah, here's a "30 minute" lunch break, go eat in this room that smells like diarrhea. There's so much more, but I don't want to come off as a "hurt" former employee, this place is just that bad of an experience.

      Pros

      They have some great people working in there

      Cons

      They have alot of horrible people working in there and in high positions. Very political in the aspect of respecting higher positions, but the entire office lakes work ethics. VP will stand on a desk and curse you out over a presentation she would want to interrupt due to personal reason. Disgusting.
