At the Fairport plant specifically, Merit is not the prime metric of contribution or worth comprising the company's assessment of an individual's value. Whatever is, is personal, essential, complicated and is not entirely tied to project's measure of success either.
The Fairport "plant" is very cliquiey. Agressive, relentless soft skills are what will just keep you afloat. It is unlikely you will successfully meneuver yourself into one of the three distinct protected classes where you are generally afforded the flexibility and a common sense backdrop to do your job.
