What I like about the company

Is a human place, where you can grow as a person, where you can count with the administrative staff to solve any inquiry you have, every day they work in a safer and cleaners ways to work.

What I dislike about the company

When I got there and they assigned me my workspace, the people in charge of my inbox were not as good as I thought, it was a really bad workout and they should work better on that.

Company Culture

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.

Teamwork

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.

Internal Communication

NO

Attitude towards older colleagues

Depends on the department.

Career Development

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.

Environmental Friendliness

Somewhat, it's a yacht builder, using resins and fiberglass. There are no " air scrubbers " in place.

Work-Life Balance

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.

Company Image

Beautiful product! The brothers who built this company, have surpassed every other builder, but they are elderly,and you cannot rest on your laurels.

Job Security

No

Handicapped Accessibility

Absolutely not

Workplace Safety

OSHA who?

Challenging Work

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.
