Pros

Good team culture. Management is understanding of time off needed. Great place to learn advanced technologies for the willing employee. Training is offered although tough to get.

Cons

Pay is not isn't competitive enough to keep seasoned employees. It is hard to stay when any job offer a person gets will probably be a lucrative raise. The vacation policy is very strange. It amounts to one week vacation the first year of employment depending on what month a person starts. It is a business casual environment but the dress code is strict. Jeans are not allowed.

Advice to Management

More competitive salaries would go a very long way to creating lifers. People want to work there but employees are forced to leave for monitary reasons.

    Pros

    A very fair company. No union means no union dues and the company treats it's employees fairly and with a sense of respect. Good hours. Company issued personal protective gear including annual safety boots.

    Cons

    I am currently having some difficulty finding requirements for advancement to next operator level. This appears to be an issue with a number of employees not just myself. I intend to persue the matter, though, and expect that I will be able to get satisfactory results.

    Pros

    Benefits are in line with industry standards. Strarting to use technology to advance company. Somewhat behind with other industries because old habits change slowly.

    Cons

    Head strong management. Older industry with older ideas and outdated thoughts. As management retires, company is getting better. Still a good company.

    Advice to Management

    Manegers need to get some new ideas from younger upcoming professional coming out of college. Need to pay these rising starts a premium in line with other competitors salaries in order to bring them on board.
