Company Culture

It was a free for all. One must "tow the line" even if you are right. Progress is very slow.

Teamwork

Two stars was given because of the union employees. Seemed they are the ones who really care about the future of the company.

Freedom to work independently

Careful with this. It is looked down upon even if you are the hero.

Internal Communication

Many times things were looked over because upper management would react instead of investigate. Asking a simple question often solves a problem.

Career Development

There is no mentoring.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay was somewhat high but expect no raises.

Office / Work Environment

Everyone is friendly. So can a crocodile.

Work-Life Balance

Expect long hours. LONG hours. 12 to 16 were not uncommon.

Job Security

The best workers are not kept.

Handicapped Accessibility

I would say the office is accesible. The factory is not.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Upper management must stop reacting impulsively. Listen and lead.

What I like about the company

The union and the hourly employees were the only ones who do what it takes to make the company run.

Overall compensation for your work

There is no compensation what so ever. No raises.

Job Security

The feeling the one is just a log for the fire is obvious through out the company. The feeling of "you can be replaced" is very present.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Upper management needs to trust that the people that are in their prospective positions are capable of their job. Upper management does not always have the answer. Listening is an essential part of management job.

What I like about the company

All union employees are very knowledgeable at their jobs. Usually they are willing to go beyond their jobs to make a better workplace.

What I dislike about the company

One must "tow the line" in every aspect of the job, and "the boss is always right" is expected to be followed.

Company Culture

The hourly work staff is treated better because it is unionized. The salary staff is given nothing.

Support from management

This new management team has no direction.

Career Development

There is none. They have brought outside people into positions.

Overall compensation for your work

Not only has there been a freeze on raises. The health plan is horrible. No bonuses to speak of. Also no contribution to 401k.

Work-Life Balance

Worked many hours without any compensation what so ever.

Job Security

Alas if you have independent thought on how to improve the company. You will be removed. Yes men are preferred.

Challenging Work

As the reduction of staff continues, their work is divided onto the remaining staff without consideration of their present work.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Remove the management staff. They appear not to know a thing about manufacturing nor about how to deal with union.

What I like about the company

Before the new management, you were listened to and had you a different idea. Had to be prepared to present said idea for scrutiny.

What I dislike about the company

The new management staff only reacts to the economy without thinking of the longterm affects to the company. The new management/executive staff that took over about 2-3 years ago.
