Company Culture

It's every person for themselves -- must watch your back.

Support from management

Their too worried about their own jobs to give support to their staff.

Teamwork

Some departments work as a team well, but not most.

Freedom to work independently

To some extent

Internal Communication

doesn't flow down from the top well at all.

Gender Equality

Believe it or not, it actually leans more towards female gender in Tax, Finance & HR.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They actually have had a Leadership Development Program in place the last several years recruiting top college graduates and slowly pushing out older employees by forced early retirement or job elimination.

Career Development

If your not in the click you go nowhere.

Overall compensation for your work

average

Office / Work Environment

The offices, equipment and other environmental conditions were fine.

Environmental Friendliness

They had aggressive green programs in place.

Work-Life Balance

In most cases it's pretty good.

Company Image

I was in the early years, but not since the current CEO(Scott Donnelly) took over.

Job Security

Very little, they were have annual job cuts every year since 2008.

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes, it was very accessible for the handicapped.

Workplace Safety

Yes, pretty safe environment.

Challenging Work

The work was challenging and I was proud of it, but it was not appreciated.

Inclusive / Diverse

Depends who is coming up with the ideas.

Suggestions for improvement

I was able to greatly expand my knowledge skills in my field while contributing a great deal to the company.

What I dislike about the company

The lack of integrity and concern for employees

Suggestions for improvement

  • more understanding and compassion for those with children, man-power planning to actually deal with contract fluctuations

What I like about the company

i have recently transitioned to a new group and they have been very welcoming and worked hard to train me in my new role. they are more understanding of the demands of my home life than i expected, even though upper management and HR do not seem to care.

What I dislike about the company

mandatory schedule changes for all with little notice, they are willing to take extra time from employees (salaried) without compensation but refuse to allow the same employee any extra time off without available PTO to use. they claim to be welcoming to all suggestions and feedback but reprimand those opinions or points that contradict what they want.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better management of scrap and recycling. As a major manufacturer, there is a lot of waste that could be saved and recycled.

What I like about the company

They took a chance on me being an older and female with moderate experience. They promote all ages, genders and races.

What I dislike about the company

None really. They could better manage parts flow so work flows smoother.
