Company Culture

Say they are high on safety, but really struggle in actually helping their employees. Friendly culture person to person though.

Teamwork

Employee to employee is very good work, but working with superiors there are multiple breakdowns.

Internal Communication

Multiple instances where people found out day of there were massive changes happening to the workforce and business. Then one week later another complete reversal.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The first people they removed was anyone of seniority who could have a different standpoint to the current leadership.

Career Development

Need to understand what kind of career you want/have before coming here as you will basically make your own path.

Overall compensation for your work

Good pay and benefits.

Environmental Friendliness

they have a safety and environmental program they try to follow, but compared to other companies it lacks a lot of backing.

Work-Life Balance

Was told from day 1 engineers work minimum 50 hour weeks, I am young so that is not terrible to me but to others could be an issue.

Company Image

Nobody knows who this company is, and most companies routinely take advantage of a small company trying to stay afloat.

Job Security

Was let go once new leadership came in because I was not happy with the amount of hours my operators were working.

Challenging Work

a lot of work needs to be done, and you can basically do whatever you please to help the plants.

What I like about the company

1. Can do whatever work you think interest's you for the majority of the time, they really don't track your work or give you set defined goals.
2. Pay is very competitive.
3. Operators are extremely friendly and just want someone/anyone to help them get through the amount of issues they have on a day to day basis.

What I dislike about the company

1. Terrible Leadership across the board from plant level all the way to corporate.
2. No business path defined for where they want the company to go, and very little support to the plants in how they can help get the company there.
3. They will remove anyone that does not agree with the leadership in place.
