Company Culture

Constant turn around and implement policies that do not work. Always a group think.

Support from management

Zero. Decisions are made with your input.

Teamwork

Complete lack. Friend to imminent TPM and management refused to embrace.

Freedom to work independently

Always 2nd guessed by the top who have zero manufacturing experience

Internal Communication

Positions are cut without you knowing or your input.

Office / Work Environment

Miserable

Environmental Friendliness

Litter all through the property and no solution to keep clean.

Work-Life Balance

Phone always going off and expected to answer emails 24/7

Job Security

Job is always on the line and threats to be let go continually

Workplace Safety

One fatality in the past 4 years and 3 LOTO volitions in the past year alone. Plant manager covered last one up.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Anonymous review of supervisors from various employees. Promotions should be made equally not because of who you know.

What I like about the company

I work on a great team we all get along.

What I dislike about the company

Being promoted is slow going. Seems that if you have a relative in management you get promoted a lot quicker.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Supervisors and leads need to be knowledgeable about the positions the people they are managing and supporting so as to be able to assist.

What I like about the company

The benefits they provide are exceptional. They give back to their employees. They also promote from within the company often, there is much room to grow.

What I dislike about the company

The supervisors and team leads were not knowledgeable at all for the most part. Employees are often given wrong information or told they do not know. This impeded doing the job well.
