Cons: initial management, political environment where corporate seagulls tend to cr @p all over, the location florence is a not a place to live if you enjoy culture, there is a racial divide that exists in florence.
During the move to SC from Nogales, the GM and Vice GM were completely out of their league. Just prior to being released, they cut some people (scapegoats) for their utter failure to establish a project plan or establish accountability.
Core issues to the haphazard migration to SC were:
1. failure to establish a project plan.
2. failure to recognize the growing gap in needed production versus the output from the plants. Instead, Corporate Marketing/Sales picked up on it and then Corporate Management drove the recovery plan.
3. the GM and Vice GM ignored advice from the head of Supply Chain to avoid this.
Corp stepped in and replaced top management with people from a different division.
