Expect to be very busy all day long, most departments are forever understaffed. Work/life can be tough especially if you are one of the chosen "they'll find a way to get it done" workers and push them towards a breaking point with stress. Although there are many long term employees that spend the majority of their career here, advancement and promoting from within seems to be a thing of the past. Management is very much hands off and the answer to any issues brought up is "figure it out amongst yourselves". The pay/salary decision making process is very vague and they seem to take advantage of people without specific industry experience or a college degree even though a degree does not help much to do the job. Insurance is good, but really expensive. Pto policy gives front office employees roughly 3 wks/yr, but whenever a family issue or illness comes up where you need to use the time, it is seen as negative towards you. The culture is very clique-ish. Gossip, rude, and unprofessional behavior goes unchecked regularly even in plain sight. Despite this, there are also a good number of caring and helpful people in the company that make you feel like a family when you can avoid the drama. Production bonuses used to be achievable, then they started setting the goals just high enough to where we miss the bonus more often than not, despite record breaking shipments and sales every month.
Some great coworkers, always something new to learn
No support from management, high stress, low pay, boys club, no direct performance feedback
