Support from management

First level management was great to work with, but had no effect on upper management decisions. Operational decisions were dictated by management two or three levels higher than the supervisor without/regardless of input by the department in question. New employees are given little if any training, but are expected to perform at a high level immediately. Within individual departments people seem to communicate effectively and were a pleadure to work with.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Overhaul training for all employees; manufacturing all the way up to the site manager and sales teams. Improve communication lines between departments and upper management. Think like a customer before implementing major operational changes.

What I like about the company

Immediate coworkers worked very well together. Open lines of communication between individuals and immediate supervisor.

What I dislike about the company

Training is often incomplete, outdated or nonexistant. Upper management gives directives without input from the affected department. Employees are expected to produce "perfect world" results with less than perfect training/tools.
