Used to be a great place to work, where the work flowed through the shop easily because of the knowledge and expertise of the people in key roles. However with guys retiring or being let go because of their new bosses child like egos nothing goes smoothly anymore. Teamwork used to be outstanding! Within the past 16 months the place became a nightmare to work for, it all starts with the OPS manager. The decisions this individual has made in my opinion has wrecked this company, with the very real possibility of the doors closing in the very near future. Because of the high volume turnover of skilled floor technicians and machinists coming up they emphasize "cross training" this will not work because either the people do not wish to be cross trained or do not posses the mechanical aptitude to take on more advanced responsibilities. Personnel recently put in charge of turbine dept have no knowledge whatsoever of the product or how to go about doing the necessary repairs, and to put it plainly do not belong in a supervisory role to begin with. The loss of key individuals both voluntary and involuntary has crippled a once great place to work and will continue to do so. Upper management does not care, HR management does not care, and when you hire fresh out of college engineers that think they know better you have a REAL problem. It really is too bad, could of been a great place. Only way to fix it is a top down management replacement.
Good people on the shop floor to work with
Little incentive to work overtime, bad work environment, no direction, bad corporate reputation
