    Pros

    The environment is very easy going and the managers are very understanding
    Coworkers are nice and are very realistic when it comes to decision making
    The people are knowledgable and willing to help if you don't understand or are still learning

    Cons

    In comparison to industry standards, the pay is within the 15th percentile.
    We're always overloaded. 9 hour days at least. Compensation for extra hours is non-existent/minimal.
    Compared to industry, the benefits aren't amazing.

    Advice to Management

    invest in your employees

    Pros

    Mostly good, knowledgeable people to work with. Decent benefits for a manufacturing company.

    Cons

    Lack of communication across different departments. Even though they claim otherwise, management is unwilling to change and adapt to new ideas. Some processes can be simplified to help things get done quicker and more efficiently. Too many unrealistic promises made to customers by management and salesforce.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more engaged with their employees and better understand their needs. Communication needs to be better. Need stronger, transparent leadership that isn't afraid to admit their mistakes (hello ESI-1000, Catwalks).

    Management is weak.
    In Romania base the management hired only relatives (nepotism negative)

    There is a lot of waste that could be cut to reduce expenses by manager in Romania base, the VPs should check this.
