Management is inconsiderate and condescending to production floor employees. They do not listen to production floor employees about issues that are hindering their performance. Management continuously increases production demands, but does not incorporate improved systems that would set their employees up for success. And although management knows it all, they somehow can't figure out how to significantly decrease scrap and improve their employee retention rate. My supervisor has the poorest interpersonal skills I've ever experienced from any member of management.
Also, the pressure of meeting production rates is so high, many times employees skip company provided breaks. Sad to say, Smith & Nephew is a modern day sweat shop. The only difference is they have air-conditioned facilities.
This company needs a complete management overhaul. They can't keep people, because they don't know how to treat people.
