Filler (Current Employee) –  Pontiac, MI 48341July 26, 2018
This company is horrible, OHSA needs to be called due to the unsafe chemicals employees breathing in. and the unsafe practices they use. They don't hire temps in at all. management is very messy and unprofessional on all 3 shifts. 1st shift and 3rd shift is the worst shift to work due to management. Supervisor are trying to date the employees, Management tell employees business to other employees. Don't work for this company run far as you can away from this company. Trust me i'm not lying.
Pros
pay is good once you are hired in.
Cons
Don't work for this company run far as you can away from this company.

Commercial Manager (Former Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LAJuly 4, 2018
The company is, overall, a good place for a career. Management is a little more short term oriented and somewhat less knowledgable about the markets.

Do not work for this company
Management (Current Employee) –  Waukegan, ILJuly 2, 2018
Used to be a good company, going down hill fast. If I was Boeing, I’d get out now, find a way. There’s no saving a place with current management. Work so hard, but no light at the end. Finally getting the head count we’ve been asking for for many years, a little too late. So many good people leaving, so many more looking to leave. Poor company values towards its employees. No appreciation. Treat some like they are nothing and can keep giving them more work when they’re already overloaded
Pros
ha none
Cons
No more flexibility, so much stress, poor management, favoritism, lies, rumors etc

Flex hours

heavy workload

Quality number 1
Strategic Sales Manager (Business Development) (Current Employee) –  WisconsinMay 17, 2018
Although marketing is basically misunderstood as far as implementation, the company is very good at making very good products and walking their talk. Products offered fit well into the small niches that they address. Quality sometimes gets in the way of a bigger broader market appeal.
Pros
Selling Great Products
Cons
Selling over engineered products

They are not really open to new ideas presented by employees. It is their way only. They uphold the buddy-buddy system, if you are a yes sir type of person, this is the job for you.
