Company Culture

No. Huge turnover, unwarrented firings, blatent threats occured daily and in public.

Support from management

Unrealistic goals for market and material condition of equipment

Teamwork

Most were good, area and culture were not accepting of "outsiders"

Freedom to work independently

Often one or two departments took blame for all problems, often undeserved

Internal Communication

Corporate philosophy of morning tactical meeting was terrific, even if ours was not productive.

Office / Work Environment

Very old infrastructure, some new equipment. Relatively clean for a cast iron foundry.

Work-Life Balance

I was expected to work 7 days a week. I averaged 90 per week. I went weeks without seeing my family

Job Security

Facility closure was announced a month after I started.

Challenging Work

I felt I was making a difference.

Inclusive / Diverse

Not often

Suggestions for improvement

  • Teams that are not winning often fire coaches, not players. Team building does not involve tearing individuals down in a public forum.

What I like about the company

Big company, long history. Very progressive production meeting / feedback / corrective action process. Northern locations are top notch

What I dislike about the company

I felt misled almost immediately. I was hired for a location that was closing in order to transfer me north. Openly attacking individuals in meetings, threats of firing almost every day. Relied on negative reinforcement instead of risk and reward. I resigned my position within two months of starting work.
