Excelllent company with a clear set of standards and expectations.
Electrical Procedure Writer (Current Employee), Kewaunee, WISeptember 7, 2013
Pros: professionally and financially rewarding.
Cons: high expectations with low threshold for accepting mistakes.
This has been the most challenging, but also the most rewarding job I have ever had. I feel so fortunate to have been part of an organization that is structured in way where everyone is set up to succeed. The expectations are clear for every aspect of your job. People are encouraged to coach one another when they see the performance of someone that is not meeting expectations and the person receiving the coaching is expected to accept it in a respectful manner.

Lack of advancement, local mgmt not qualified
Operations/Maintenance (Current Employee), Somerset, MAAugust 26, 2013
Pros: pay is ok.
Cons: morale low, lack of promotions, unqualified mgmt
This location has a complete lack of skilled management. A mechanical supervisor was promoted from the ranks, but never even qualified as a level 1 technician. Plant manager was also promoted from the ranks but has no management education. The decisions are "shoot from the hip" style and it's a culture of "let's see what happens". Nothing is figured out and the results from major decisions are not calculated ahead of time. Management makes million dollar mistakes that go unpunished but yet nickle and dime the workers every chance they get. The vast majority of the workforce, from the 1st line supervisors to the janitors, has a "who cares" attitude, and it doesn't seem like it will get better. Safety has a "blame the worker" policy and have disciplined workers after they had an accident. I don't think corporate knows what goes on at this facility.
