Company Culture

Only reaching production requirements seems to matter

Support from management

Leadership disconnected from daily issues and problems

Teamwork

Plant run under dictatorship style management

Freedom to work independently

Work responsibility is assigned, not developed with workers

Internal Communication

Good news is shared on occasions. Other info travels through rumors

Gender Equality

Women & others only get opportunities if socially involved. Skill set not relevant

Attitude towards older colleagues

Seniors are hired, but long loyalty is not rewarded much

Career Development

Development is only based on "good old boy" network

Overall compensation for your work

Overall compensation is low

Environmental Friendliness

Discussion of these matters does not reflect actions

Work-Life Balance

Some vacation is assigned during shut down. Shifts & overtime are dictated

Company Image

Outside image portrayed much better than internal realities

Job Security

No job security exists

Handicapped Accessibility

Little is done for these types of accommodations

Workplace Safety

Safety issues only recognized by few employees

Challenging Work

Real primary goal is to reach production requirements.

Workforce is diverse. Company does not utilize this well

Suggestions for improvement

  • Updated equipment and more manufacturing talented leadership could improve work

What I like about the company

Building,developing, & testing products is interesting

What I dislike about the company

Very restrictive worker shifts & hours. Mandatory overtime & use of vacation during shutdown
