While the company itself has changed hands a lot, it was great to work for. The workload was reasonable, and management was very fair. I learned a lot about the equipment, and cross-training was always strongly encouraged. Advancement in the company was good as long as you proved yourself. They didn't advance just anyone. Co-workers were highly experienced, and a fount of knowledge. While this led to some cynicism, they were (mostly) open to sharing what they had learned throughout the years to the less experienced/new people. If the site hadn't closed down, I'd still happily be there, and would have recommended it to others.
fair management, lots to learn, recognition dinners, reasonable shifts
