Very good, quality people on the floor, where the product (yachts)are made. Otherwise the company is in transition to the 2nd and 3rd generation. And that is a problem.
In the production lines most lead people and their crews interact well with "support" departments, lthat which provides the necessary parts. Problems arise above the production line level . In engineering and product development.
Freedom to work independently
For the most part. Forman and lead personnel are stressed to the breaking point. Sometimes it up to floor personal to pick up the slack.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Depends on the department.
I would leave no stars if I could, 7 years ago my answer would have been very different.
Overall compensation for your work
No . Pay is behind the times. BUT the benefits are generous.
Somewhat, it's a yacht builder, using resins and fiberglass. There are no " air scrubbers " in place.
When a boat is due , or a show is coming up the pressure to comply a boat goes way up. But when the FOUNDER was still in the plant every day, people were well cared for . Even when times were bad he opened the in house infermery to all employees and their families. Laid off or not.
Beautiful product! The brothers who built this company, have surpassed every other builder, but they are elderly,and you cannot rest on your laurels.
Absolutely! Gorgeous boats!
Inclusive / Diverse
Company is very diverse, but is decades behind in their policies .
Suggestions for improvement
- Take a look where problems exist and quit passing the buck down hill
What I like about the company
Good benefits, good people on the work floor
What I dislike about the company
Upper management has gone arri since the founder took ill. No go to personal when problems arrise.especially in Human Resources.
