Some of the facilities have much dirty manual labor, they are the better paying positions. Other facilities, although fast-paced, are pretty clean.
For the most part, Middle-management appears to be clueless as they pass their workload down to the hourly help and there is A LOT of favoritism. Upper management appears to be content to have "Yes men" in the positions below them so things aren't likely to change anytime soon.
Most areas are "safe" to work in so no complaints there and most employees are good to work with but at times it is easy to see stress come out from heavy work loads (BUSY not physically "heavy").
Some perks are nice, company activities and bonus checks, but they are making it increasingly difficult to obtain some of these bonuses specifically by implementing a Kaizen program, where if you don't or can't come up with ideas to save the company money, you lose part or all of your bonus checks.
My area is pretty clean
Health Insurance not the greatest, and increasingly have to jump through hoops to get your bonus checks.
