Eagle Picher is managed solely by the "the good ole boy system" and there is not a chance to advance regardless of your performance. They promote their friends and suppress those who do not personally patronize them.

Eagle Picher was bought by a company the year before I quit. Up until that time it was a good job. After the restructure I worked with someone that for some reason hated me. Never figured out why, until then I'd never had a problem with the hundreds of people I worked with. I was moved to a different plant, the person and I were the only people in the plant. After four months of bad treatment I went to my manager, nothing happened. Then went to my bosses boss and human resources, still nothing happened. So I quit.

New ownership has created severe reduction in the number of employees, thereby creating an impossible workload for those remaining. The company used to be a great place to work, but is quickly going downhill.
Dishonest Management, Unethical - Don't work here!
Test Lab (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – January 16, 2016
I worked for EP for many years. I should have left long before I did. I thought about it and started to, but was convinced to stay...wrong decision. This company has a big problem with ethics and poor leadership on the part of management. It was once a great company to work for but those days are long in the past. Pay is below the industry standard, retirement benefits are non existing but health benefits are okay. The HR department is horribly dishonest and far too many people company wide hold their positions because of they are connected to rather than qualifications. Advancement is difficult because this.
