    Pros

    - great culture
    - everyone likes to get to know everyone in the office (Canadian Office)
    - great salary package and compensation, Defined Benefit retirement plan, not too many companys doing that anymore
    - many opportunities to grow, if willing to move to Akron, Ohio, not too many or at all in Canadian office

    Cons

    - Company has been doing well since 2008 downturn, but continues to have layoffs as a cost cutting measure

    Advice to Management

    - because of the numerous opportunities to grow, theres alot of people changing jobs within the company in Akron. Transition between people needs to be better, doesnt seem like person changing moving out of the position trains the person coming in very well enough to ensure a smooth transition

  2. A grind.

    Pros

    Good paying salary, great benifits we work 12 hr rotation shifts so you only work 14 days a month lots of time off.

    I work with a great bunch of people and that really makes your job

    Cons

    Cutbacks in order to save money sometimes means things don't get fixed right away

    Advice to Management

    I believe that you have forgotten the basics when it comes to the floor decisions at times you need to remember where you came from and how you got where you are.

    Remember Back to basics

    Pros

    Multiple responsibilities allow for a greater range of open doors for you to stick your foot in through so to speak.

    Cons

    Low-pay, not much business. There was plenty of time for sitting around and watching movies or playing on the Internet.

    Advice to Management

    Work on advancement of the employees, practice better marketing to attract and help get more business in the door for technicians.
