Support from management

The management team would turn on each other then turn on us as an outlet to vent they're anger.

Internal Communication

Communication was not existing..

Gender Equality

Unless your one of the "Good Ol boys" and socialize outside of the job with the supervisors, IE hunting,fishing,drinking, then you will not move up the ladder.

Environmental Friendliness

Our recycling department was very efficient

Work-Life Balance

12 hour a day ,or night .,minimum of 60 hours a week is NOT GOOD FOR THE FAMILY.

Workplace Safety

Our former safety leader put in place many new safety regulations to ensure we went home the same way we came in.

Challenging Work

You do have the opportunity to learn as much about the carbon fiber business as you like,as long as you dont make a supervisor upset,then its back to the beginning.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Completely start over with a new plant manager,and ALL new supervisors. .Create a positive work environment instead of the "Motivate thru Humiliation " its not working.

What I like about the company

Health insurance

What I dislike about the company

Very weak management, human resource is not there to assist,only to harrass,and belittle.

Company Culture

The site executive leadership is the worst I I have ever witnessed throughout my career. There is inconsistent and unfair treatment - on the line of bullying behavior. The mid-level is relatively knowledgeable and fair at managing their employees. The hourly workers really care about the process but unfortunately have unrealistic demands that can't be achieved

Job Security

The middle level management is very knowledgeable and engaged with their workforce. The pay is fairly competitive. The site level executive committee is a bit incompetent and promotions are based on favoritism. Also, men are paid more than women.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Replace the executive level leadership. Listen to your employees. We want the company to succeed. We just want to be treated fairly.

What I like about the company

The pay is good. The team I work with is great.

What I dislike about the company

I don't like the political bureaucracy. Women are not treated the same as men in similar positions. The culture has turned over the last 4 years to a management bullying company.
