TIG MIG Welder (Former Employee) –  Glendale Heights, ILJanuary 24, 2018
Great place to work. Mainly TIG welding Aluminum and Stainless Steel. Really nice people and the company ran smoothly. I was let go due to the company downsizing.

Used to be good, now it is a stressful mess
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Glendale Heights, ILMay 10, 2016
The new management team is good at talking but actually doing anything productive is beyond their ability. When I worked there we had a good team mentality that helped the business grow to almost 300 people working at 2 separate locations. Unfortunately the owner decided he knew how to run the company better than the people he originally hired to run it and now it is a former shell of itself with half the workforce and at one location. There is no team anymore unless you count the president and his crew of yes men. No one seems to care anymore about doing the job right. It is a game of point the finger. There have been many new employees who have quit almost immediately once they realize how bad this place is.
Pros
I don't work there anymore
Cons
The owner, the upper management, no trust, no loyalty, no security
