Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee), Columbia, SCJanuary 28, 2014
Pros: free coffee
Cons: having to leave due to lay-offs
My day was full of tasks and deadlines. I learned alot about cost allocation in this position and the manufacturing industry. The management group was helpful and family oriented. My teammates were passionate and hard-working. The hardest part of this position was preparing and implementing the new paperless scanning and work flow system. The most enjoyable part of my position was the multiple department cross training.

Once great now sliding...
Drafter (Former Employee), ColumbiaNovember 4, 2012
Pros: great team work, gifts at christmas, good health care benefits, possiblity of flex time.
Cons: very poor career advancements; modest salaries, very poor relocation benefits
Once this organisation was simply great. You did not go to work here. It was a second home with your co-workers as family members. Work was fun and long hours did not matter.
Pressures and restructuring by the holding company corporate office has caused a complete change in the environment. From an era when loyalty to the firm, a passion for the product line and technology was the culture of the work force there is now a complete disconnect with a task based culture of "get it done anyhow" approach. There is a significant amount of cronyism and manipulation and questionable ethics. The experienced workforce has largely dissappeared. Attrition in the engineering workforce is significant.
