NET Developer (Former Employee) –  Norcross, GAMarch 30, 2018
If you are eager to implement best practices and make a difference, then this is not the place for you. If you prefer to stay in your box and do EXACTLY as you are told without deviating from the script, then you will excel.
Pros
pay and benefits
Cons
glacial pace of change

Manager and Security Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  Norcross, GAFebruary 8, 2018
As a security manager and systems administrator, it interesting to play the role of loss prevention and security in this industry where maintaining trade secrets is important. Learning how the remote controlled security systems work was fascinating. I enjoyed the respect shown to security staff even though we were contracted to this organization.
Pros
Learning about technology innovation
Cons
Not much room for growth in security position.

excellent benefits, cut-throat environment
Senior Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Carrollton, GASeptember 16, 2017
This company offers excellent benefits and compensation. At this point in my life and career, I wasn't willing to put in the time that it would've took to move into a dayshift position. There were guys waiting in line with 17 years seniority. As it is with most companies, the better the job, the more you have be willing to tolerate. OFS is no exception to that rule. Any mistakes that were made were usually extremely costly to the company. This promotes a blame game, cut-throat environment across the board between employees and departments. Management, of course, never took responsibility for their poor decision making and lastly the brown-nosers did well in this environment. There seemed to be a lot of tension in the air at all times and since expectations were so high, the finger-pointing was a constant. I never felt like this environment offered a good work/life balance because of the hours and stress.
Pros
incentive bonus
Cons
cut-throat environment

Hurry up and wait culture. Would have two weeks with practically nothing to do and then two weeks where overtime was required to meet deadlines. Great to keep busy...awful when bored.

High stress, no team based drive
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Carrollton, GAJune 17, 2017
The managers are extremely inexperienced, and demand an unhealthy amount of production per person. Too much micromanaging and not enough upper management involvement. They don't know or care what goes on on the floor, just that you're making them a hearty bonus.
Pros
A lot of pto. Decent insurance. Decent pay.
Cons
Management doesn't exist. They expect you to produce too much without enough material

OFS is probably a typical manufacturing company but it is more concerned and involved with it's employees.
Receiving Associate (Current Employee) –  Carrollton, GAMay 8, 2017
OFS is a great place to work. Great management team and cares about its employees. Company provides bonuses for hard work and productivity. Provides very good heath benefits and a 401 profit sharing plan. Company demands top performance but provides a somewhat laid back comfortable work environment.
Pros
Have cookouts from time to time. Provide dinners and parties throughout the year for employees
Cons
sometimes ask to work overtime to meet customer demands

Management out of touch
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Avon, CTMarch 6, 2017
The benefits, pay, and work life flexibility are the greatest aspects of this company. However, management is completely out of touch with what's going on. There is very little room for vertical advancement. Lots of hourly people waste as much time as possible and are there just for the paycheck.

unethical management with no regards to anyones life outside of work
A person who cares (Current Employee) –  Norcross, GAFebruary 1, 2017
Although this company is a great place to work and the co-workers are exceptional, the management tends to forget the importance of YOUR life, the fact that you are sometimes forced to work these mandatory days even on your day off says a lot about the general care of your well being and health, the fact that management seems to be fine with the factory workers working on a 7 day coverage while office personnel enjoy's their weekends resting assured that all will be taken care of tells me that there is no integrity or loyalty.
life can really be great with a company like this, the pay is comfortable and very competitive over time, but the upper management needs to reconsider their approach on quantity versus quality, they need to go back to a 5 day coverage and give people their lives back so that they can reboot and come back rested and prepared to give 120% safely without incidents or they ALL need to be in there working a 7 day coverage like everyone else.

Stand Strong In What Matters Most....
Pros
Competitive pay great benefits
Cons
7 Day Coverage/ lack of empathy

Extruder Operator (Former Employee) –  1 Brightwave Blvd Carrollton, GaDecember 28, 2016
Clock in. Talk with lead and then with previous extruder operator. Perform a walk through by checking compound levels, print, Kevlar, etc. Keep line operating throughout the 12 hour work day, as well as cleaning, taking measurements, and performing changeovers and color changes per schedule.

Wood Lagger (Former Employee) –  Carrollton, GANovember 6, 2016
Everything is fairly good with this company except the management team is not interested in the health and safety of it's employees. The area over by shipping and receiving is mold infested and I got a mold infection because of it. They saran wrap their planks that sit on pallets and because of it traps moisture into the wood which sits around for a long time accumulating mold. I asked to be moved to another location since I was only having problems in my work area, they said it would take a while longer, even though the infection was causing me to puke every other day if not sometimes every day. It got so bad I had to quit and the management personnel said I wouldn't be able to reapply once a position in another area opened up. All of this considering I was one of their hardest working employees and my quality, production numbers were way above average.
Pros
People are good to work with
