      Pros

      People. The people you work with day to day are usually good people. Profit sharing and VCP are nice if you get them.

      Cons

      Incredible amounts of nepotism to the point you will watch guys who were brought on the same day as you get offered a full time position sometimes years before you’re offered one simply because daddy works in the plant. A common question posed to new hires by coworkers is often “so who got you in here?”. Bloated middle management. Many people doing the same task. Incredibly redundant. Many do absolutely nothing tangible on a day to day basis.

      Pros

      Great benefits, secure job when I was there , good learning and development opportunities . It's a company where people from different departments work together seamlessly for the betterment of company which I found to be unique . This was probably due to profit sharing .

      Cons

      Middle management is not capable of implementing 21 century people management skills . Old school style with a lot of yelling and micromanagement .

      Not what it used to be

      Pros

      Once you're in, you're in for life if you want to be. They really don't lay off and it's pretty hard to get fired.

      Cons

      Low quality middle management. They tend to take the worst workers and hope they do better in management positions. They refuse to listen to the opinions of the people who actually run the lines or work on the equipment, instead relying on the inexperienced opinions of this month's technologist or engineer.
