Not an environment which fosters new ideas. Every man/woman for himself/herself. Seems you have to walk with your head on a swivel, not for safety, but to watch your back. Since it services the oil, petrochemical and agricultural industries, work fluctuates and layoffs are common. Oh, and it is a union environment. Be careful. "Union Brother" is a euphamism at best. More often, someone in the union will have you in their sites. DO NOT SHOW DRIVE OR INITIATIVE, or they will turn on you in a heartbeat.
Suggestions for improvement
- Work on your MRP processes. Get something that does not require "go-between" programs. Something more comprehensive.
What I like about the company
Excellent pay and benefits package.
What I dislike about the company
Small minded and antiquated. Poor interdepartmental communication and relationships often lead to delays and lack of parts to complete jobs.
