Suggestions for improvement

  • I think the workplace culture here has greatly improved since I joined the company 5 years ago. I think they should continue to increase the wellness events they have recently created. Those can be a huge added perk to the employees with little cost to the company.

What I like about the company

I enjoy the company I work for. I have a great opportunity to work with great people. The people I work with make a huge difference in the work I do each day and in my attitude about my work.

What I dislike about the company

I think there could be better flow down from the top with relevant information. I also think allowing managers to have more control over promotions would be a good thing.

Company Culture

It was an awesome company to work for with a lot of diversity

Challenging Work

Physically and quota.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would add in central air and better ventilation systems

What I like about the company

I was able to move up in the company. I was challenged and my supervisors were always willing to work with me. They valued my opinion and listened to my suggestions which was very nice. I have a family and when there are school functions I was able to get time off to go to their programs. If my child was sick they worked with me and not against me. I appreciate the employee Christmas bonus and spring bonus. I would definitely return if I moved back there

What I dislike about the company

During the summer it is super hot in there and we are constantly needing to take electrolyte pills and the ventilation is horrible in the building

Suggestions for improvement

  • Just for them to listen to suggestions of the teams sometimes because that would make things easier for us

What I like about the company

I feel we all are treated just right. there is little tension in the air. The bosses let us work from home if we can not make it that day. It seems there is a good atmosphere around the whole building and the job gets done on time no matter what location

What I dislike about the company

There are things some of us dissaprove of but not many. We have most of the programs we need but there is some things that we do not have and we are kind of away from the major parts of the city where it is hard to go get hings we need

Company Culture

The company culture is defined by good people

Overall compensation for your work

I believe that I should be making 10-15% more than I am

Handicapped Accessibility

I believe that we have handicap accessible facilities, but I am not handicapped so I have a hard time accurately assessing this.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I can't think of any improvements that I would make at my company that I am able to state in a public forum.

What I like about the company

I enjoy the people that I work with. This company is like a family. We have a good time traveling together on work trips, etc. It is a small company, so over time it becomes tight-knit.

What I dislike about the company

I believe that my company should pay engineers higher salaries.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The supervisors need to be more trusting with the employees. Let the operators run the machines and stop looking over the operator's shoulder.

What I like about the company

Fun and energetic coworkers. The supervisors trust and enjoy working with the employees

What I dislike about the company

The cafeteria tastes like the food is frozen. Multiple supervisors let the power go to their head.
