Being "Thrown under the bus" is very common here. Supervisors will trash anyone in order to retain their position in the "management clique"
Support from management
Constant Monday-morning quarter-backing, with no true consensus on desired production quality.
Team work breaks down on the production floor frequently.
Freedom to work independently
Slacking by several employees in a department is not uncommon while one employee works hard to reach desired quotas.
Monthly meetings are filled with admonishments, vacant promises, and meaningless information.
Women are routinely discriminated against.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Long term employees continually lose benefits and promised bonuses
Few, if any, advancement prospects are available for the average employee
Overall compensation for your work
Pay is consistently below industry standards, with no offered bonuses for most employees. Promised bonuses are frequently reneged upon.
Office / Work Environment
A closer look at OSHA regulations would greatly benefit the safety and health of the employees
Metal dust is not disposed of properly as required by EPA guidelines.
Work is priority, vacation is allowed only when management deems it acceptable in regards to production deadlines. Management has threatened to recall employees from vacation if "production needed it".
Morale is quite low, often to the detriment of product produced.
Constant employee movement due to decreasing work loads
No major considerations offered for disabled employees unless they're management.
Major OSHA concerns in production areas, including employee training, equipment maintenance, and Code violations.
Quality is a consistent issue, often being overruled for production rates
Suggestions for improvement
- A full audit of all OSHA, EPA, Quality, and HR guidelines
- Hire a dedicated HR team and review all employees and management
