What I like about the company

The events are fun. Nice break room. Access to buy food from vending machines free microwaves and utensils

What I dislike about the company

I don't like how over barring the supervision is, don't like that there is such a strict environment. Needs to be more relaxed.

Company Culture

The current state of business and financial health made it a toxic culture.

Support from management

Support came if it was politically beneficial due to the culture.

Teamwork

There was some team work, but the culture encouraged a cut throat mentality. The union salary atmosphere made it worse when things became more political for either side.

Freedom to work independently

Only when it is absolutely necessary. The culture prevented personal and professional growth.

Internal Communication

A chain communication, for the most part, allowing information to be lost and /or skewed.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Depends on the political alliances.

Work-Life Balance

Put on mandatory overtime for over a month straight, then 1 weekend off a month.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Clean house, model it similar to the G.E. turn around. I think that is the only solution left.

What I like about the company

Some of the people

What I dislike about the company

Group think, definition of insanity, morale, lack of loyalty.

Company Culture

Hostile, cut throat at times. Work first, family second if we do not need you.

Support from management

Monday morning quarterbacking. Not seen during holidays or weekends in support of forcing work.

Teamwork

As stated in culture, can be cut throat at times.

Freedom to work independently

Micro management with the understanding that you will be responsible if something goes wrong while under direction.

Internal Communication

Vertical chain of communication that is not shared all the time.

Environmental Friendliness

No one cares about the condition of the plant when actions are viewed over words. Trash everywhere and the culture accepts this practice.

Work-Life Balance

I worked mandatory two months straight, then shifted to two days off a month for a long period.

Workplace Safety

Review the safety history of the plant. Horrible culture.

Challenging Work

Managing upward is a challenge as key individuals know everything and have no more room to learn and grow.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Remove the group think. Wipe clean and start fresh.
