They just ust had a big increase in their EMR (at end of 2015). The facoties are not organiyed and are run like fiefdoms, with Shop Supervisors acting with too much autonomy. There is no real supply chain tracking, and there is high turn over in the shop labor pool.
Suggestions for improvement
- I would suggest: better work-life balance, training and implementation of standards/systems (any training at all), an organization chart, yearly reviews, a communicated business plan, and team building -versus a lack of a) introductary training, b) pool of superiors with valuable skills willing/able to mentor, c) desire to retain mid-level experienced staff at market rates.
What I like about the company
Exporsure to challenging and diverse projects.
What I dislike about the company
Upper management that does not work toward implementing a cohesive business plan, with milestones - 1) obtaining necessary working capital financing, 2) investment in staff by setting up an organization chart to empower individuals and teams to grow into delegated scopes of work and away micromanagement; creating clear career paths and investing in continuing education, 4) completing projects on time [ex: material tracking system, setting up a independently verified QC system, purchasing necessary computer programs to support business, implementation of company standards, etc...)
