Pros: somewhat good at what they do: folding cartons
Cons: egos of top managers. they really are living in the 1920s.
* Careful employment seekers, I know you would like employment to put food on the table but beware of Arkay Packaging. Your tenure could be brought to a quick and unexpected end. Arkay is not a long term opportunity, especially for front line supervision, planners, other salaried positions. Do NOT look at Arkay as an opportunity for a long term career.
Absolute top management has been with the company too long, were chased out of their home state, set up shop in a "southern" state so to manipulate the "Great Unwashed" southerners.
Company culture is not conducive for security. Moral is rock bottom through out the enterprise.
All the while, the owner and his immediate minions (VPs) fly in their Gulfstream jet (actual situation) Vacation in their personal boats, etc.
Yes, I am disappointed. But I am observant. Top Management is investing in "World Class" infrastructure (machines) but not in their own personal development. "Need money, off with their heads, even if the the victim has long term tenure and is central to enterprise flow"
Their heads are like concrete: All mixed up and permanently set.
I really liked my boss, and still do. He is genuine, but he himself is an outsider and will be tossed aside when the VPs need more $.
Enterprise culture will affect how you live your life outside work time, and Arkay's will be detrimental to you and your family's
