At most manufacturing companies, the workers keep their heads down for fear of being fired, though I never got this impression from Aspen. You could say what you wanted, and if it hadn't already been thought of that way, then they might look into it. The only rough part about working there was how they were always trying to find a cheaper product, despite the fact that they already didn't have sufficient supplies. This, coupled with a horrible mandate of bureaucracy that left everybody guessing on how to document what, really holds up an otherwise innovative company.
go in early, get out early.
nothing solid, they say 4 10 hour shifts, but they'll switch it without warning.
