Management at Franklin Facility has poor decisions making, they only think about their self and home grown decision, they never been outside – more... Franklin.

• your co-workers
Working on a small town and being none white even if I am American citizen, some of them can’t accept the fact that I am higher rank than them. They brown nose to the supervisor and do everything to put me down, the sad part, supervisor allowed them.

Needs to be rebuilt
Analysis & Repair support (Current Employee), Franklin, KYMay 18, 2013
Pros: decent pay, canteen service 5 days a week, clean enviroment, heat and air, music plays daily.
Cons: managment are not trustworthy, employees are unmotivated, values change from day to day, no one cares about quality, moral is non existant.
On a typical workday you will see most employees walking around talking or sleeping on testers. Management values and quality values change from shift to shift. Some managers say that quality is not important, its all about the numbers. They have been working 7 days a week for 4 years and tell employees they are not dedicated enough when they take points – more... so they get days off. Employees are treated as if they are stupid and are made to feel replaceable. – less
