  • Put more emphasis quality than on time. In training they say Safety First but when you actually get on the floor they want quality in timely manner and I have seen a lot of people take shortcuts to meet quotas. And when you take shortcut most of the time the quality fall short and the company loses money.

What I like about the company

The benefits are very good and the management team does a good job in motivating the team. The pain is also a positive

What I dislike about the company

The constant push to put out quality work in a timely manner. You understand that work needs to be done in a timely manner but everyone does not work the same especially under pressure and then that leads to the company not getting quality work and having more safety issues from trying to save time.

Suggestions for improvement

  • There are times when an employee can be coached to help him improve and I always try to help everybody improve but there are sometimes when an employee really don't care to improve. The employee just want to get paid to do the least possible. In those cases disciplinary action should be taken. That's rarely the case. It's not to promote fear but to see how the person cares for the job.

What I like about the company

Mostly they always offer ways to climb higher in the company. Always offer the jobs to people inside first which is good. I like my bosses. Always trying to help improve everything.

What I dislike about the company

Lack of discipline of some employees and not very appreciative of loyal employees who have been with the company for many years.

  • -More flexibility on working hours/working location

What I like about the company

I've had a lot of opportunity to go through great training programs (Green Belt, Black Belt, Crucial Conversations, etc.) I also have a lot of responsibility and am trusted to do my job.

What I dislike about the company

My previous manager was completely inept and incompetent. He screwed up several times, had an extremely high turnover rate for reports, and was widely disliked. He cannot accomplish anything on his own and is a master delegator when his role was more of an individual contributor type role. His lackluster safety violations and completely inappropriate behavior (asking me if I'd seen a psychiatrist, asking my coworker if she'd found a gynecologist, etc.) was completely unprofessional and unacceptable and HR wouldn't do anything. The management at our location wanted him out too, but due to a convoluted reporting structure, it took 5 years to get rid of him when he shouldn't have made it past the 90 day trial period. He now works in a different department, still utterly incompetent and not making positive contributions. The fact that this situation even exists has made me lose faith in the company-- there's something off somewhere.
