    Pros

    Excellent growth strategy. Plenty of opportunities to grow professionally. Management has provided the tools necessary to create a culture that is focused on process improvement. Generally management seems to care about their employees and does a good job of communicating to their employees.

    Cons

    Everyone from outside of Wisconsin thinks you work for the Oshkosh B'gosh clothing company when you tell them where you work. Being located in Oshkosh, WI.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the employees. Be better at building personal relationships with employees at all levels of the organization.

  6. OC is a "Life Draining and Uncaring Company" that has little to no regard for the family lives of its employees.

    Pros

    Good pay for both salary and hourly personnel. The benefits package does cover the basics, but the insurance leaves much to be desired when it comes to deductibles.

    Cons

    The company preaches that "Work-Life Balance" is to be enjoyed by all of its employees. However, overtime is excessive and often mandatory. While hourly employees are paid for overtime hours, salary personnel are not compensated.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your people, especially at the Team Coordinator level. Pushing your frontline supervisors, Team Coordinators, in excess of 55 uncompensated hours week after week after week is not only uncaring but beyond abusive.

    Great pay and good work life balance. Company shut down during December.

    Pros

    The staff are very nice people to work with but everyone seems to work in fear.

    Cons

    Project Management and Organization is lacking at every level. There is no clear scheduling, quality control and no clearly defined leadership roles with accountability and direction. As a result their projects run long, extremely costly and appear to be more complicated then they should. Their turnover rate is through the roof and they use several consulting firms which are constantly at odds. The management roles they do have in place present several conflicts of interest which is the root cause of stagnation.

    Advice to Management

    Put the right people in charge at the right levels. Promote collaboration and adopt one of the several Agile methodologies to help keep and project project Velocity.
