Monotonous
Customer service representative (Current Employee) –  Apex, NCAugust 12, 2018
Bad management and corporate culture is cliquish. Old techniques are used by management for the overwhelming work load. Employees are unappreciated and over worked. Fear and intimidation of losing your job is used among management if you give your opinion about the work load or suggested new ideas to increase productivity.
Pros
Raises
Cons
Work load

Lack of Knowledgeable Leaders
Machinist (Current Employee) –  Dayton, OHJuly 30, 2018
The downfall of the company was 3 years ago when they hired the current production manager who has no machining experience or people skills. He then proceeds to fire two knowledgeable, experienced supervisors and replaces them with inexperienced individuals from another trade. The frustration on the floor is abundant. The plant manager is a wonderful man, who must have his hands tied and is unable to change his current management team.

Management is unorganized and hardly communicates
Machine Operator/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  York, PAMay 9, 2018
This was a very good company at the start but the management turnover in last 2 years has made it stressful, uneasy, difficult to communicate with and increased daily work hours along with weekend hours with increasing improperly trained individuals. They took away incentive things and made many employees uncomfortable. Let individuals go without giving adequate reasons.
Pros
Pay and benefits
Cons
Unpaid lunches, longer hours, moved people around and improperly trained employees

Good place to work, great people. There some times seemed to be a disconnect between upper level management and mid management. Snacks would occasionally be available in the break room.
