DIRECTOR, FINANCIAL PLANNING AND ANALYSIS, Reno, NV - March 18, 2015
The culture at the EP corporate headquarters is poor. Management are predominately drivers who have little idea how to form and foster a team environment. Thus they manage by grinding, haranguing and instilling fear. This is particularly true of the CFO but also senior management of operations is known for it. They need to realize that when employee's under a particular manager are a revolving door, shutting down, tuning out and getting out every couple years, particularly in this economy, it is the manager who is the problem and needs to go.

The plants can be very different depending on the management style of that particular plant manager and his staff. The plant off USA Parkway in particular is known to be run by an experienced, strong manager and as a good place to work. They should promote him to the corporate office and have others emulate him. The plants have been doing what they do for as much as 45 years, thus they have gotten pretty good at it. This can be positive, in that they know what they are doing, or negative, as in there's little room for improvement.
