Company Culture

I am lucky to work with group of people I really like nd get along well with. We not only does my immediate group support each other in and outside of work.

Support from management

It’s not always easy, but You get what you want by being persistent

Teamwork

It’s a stressful job and patience

Freedom to work independently

Management pretty much leaves you to run your area as you see fit within reason if you know your job well.

Internal Communication

Communication is a huge problem.

Work-Life Balance

We make our own work-life balance! The job is tries to give us our time we need off but can’t always which can sometimes cause conflicts.

Company Image

I enjoy what i do and really like my coworkers.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better management in some areas. Discipline isn’t always enforced the way it should be. Turnover is extremely high. I think if things were more organized so it wasn’t so hard on employees, then more would stay. Also, better candidate screening needed. They should also be put in areas they’re more qualified and appropriate for.

What I like about the company

The diverse group of people that work at the facility always makes the job fun and interesting.Even when you don’t feel like going to work sometimes, its good to know you can look forward to seeing certain people that will make your day a lot better!

What I dislike about the company

Wish there was better management. However, improvements are aggresively being made to remedy this. It’s getting betterThe organization of how things are handled could improve greatly! You feel like your working in chaos but it all comes out all right in the end.
