One word that best describes the work environment is Favoritism. Yes, you may get the ocassional impressions that nothing is going on, everyone gets along, blah blah blah, but its when your not present in the floor shop when words and criticism takes effect. Everyone here (they know who they are) knows how easy the work is, but tend to exagerrate to upper management of how tedious and frustrating the work is, so they request more money. Besides that, everyone pretends they get along, but when the other person leaves, thats when they tell you how much they do not like how they work. Now no one likes to lose their job, but if possible, will kick the next working man or set up the other guy so they can take over their position. Another thing i noticed was how each individual shift chooses what they want to work on and the leads do not say anything, but when its them that need to do the hard work, is when they start to complain about the previous shift not doing anything...meaning if they have to lift one finger during their shift, they complain about it.
Most of this review can be applied to upper management roles such as shift leaders, anyone incharge of a certain area, and office people as well.
