Case Paper Philadelphia Review

1.78

Support from management

Supervisors make you feel like it's "you" against "them". No real support from the management team.

Teamwork

A lot of backstabbing. Everyone is out for their individual numbers/stats.

Freedom to work independently

The supervisor distributes the work. You get what you get.

Internal Communication

Lack of communication is a very big issue within this company.

Gender Equality

At the time that I worked at Case there were no women working on the production floor.

Career Development

This is company does not gear towards career minded individuals. You have a max rate for machine operators and with the new union contract it will take years to reach that max. There is really no room for advancement. You are pretty much hired to be a machine operator and that's where they want you to remain.

Overall compensation for your work

The union benefits are very good but the pay is on the far lower end for the industry.

Office / Work Environment

You're working in an environment with no heat in the winter and no AC in the summer. It can get very uncomfortable at times. Also the ventilation is subpar. You're constantly breathing in dust and dirt from the equipment.

Work-Life Balance

It's a union job with Monday through Friday hours and overtime is not mandatory but supervisors do get upset if you choose not to work overtime when asked.

Company Image

The morale at Case is extremely low. The employees have a strong distaste for the plant manager in particular.

Job Security

The industry is trending in the wrong direction.

Handicapped Accessibility

Not very handicap friendly.

Workplace Safety

While I at Case I was put on several machines and work areas with very little to no training at all.

Challenging Work

It's production. You're pretty much doing the same thing day in and day out.

Inclusive / Diverse

The plant manager makes the decisons. The employees adjust to them.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Change the way you treat/speak to the employees and watch the morale climb! Improve working conditions. Offer a more competitive salary.

What I like about the company

Paid weekly every Wednesday.

What I dislike about the company

The separation between management and production workers. The sense that the company doesn't really need you and you can be replaced at a moments notice (We were actually told that at a meeting once). Subpar working conditions. Low standards when it comes to proper training.
