    Pros

    Some excellent, excellent people working for an awful company. Employees are any company's BIGGEST asset.

    Cons

    Very unimpressed with my entire employment experience at FNG. I simply do not even know where to begin when talking about my less-than-one-year journey as a FNG employee. In a nutshell, it is a culture full of biases, abuse of power, carelessness, lack of responsibility and ownership, and overall terribly unsupportive. As a Human Resources professional, I was excited to join a team and eager to make a difference. I am the type of employee that likes challenge and is willing to take on projects and facilitate positive changes within organizations. Saying this, I quickly came to realize that the FNG team is not really a team after all. While some members of management are fantastic, a majority cannot grasp the concept of supportive teamwork, taking onus and responsibility, and proactive as opposed to reactive management styles. Moreover, it was sad to see those employees and even some leaders within the organization fall short and take the hit for certain outcomes when they did not receive any support or direction from upper management. That leads me to my next point, which is a topic I hold to the highest degree - training. The lack of support for training is absolutely outrageous and disgusting. As a manufacturing facility, training should be one of the #1 priorities for a variety of reasons, most importantly, worker safety. Training is completely undervalued at FNG. ALL responsibility falls onto Human Resources when it comes to training. And I am not talking about onboarding training - I am talking about job-specific training. I know for a fact if this company was ever audited for training records, I can confidently say the auditor would either A. not find any or B. have a very hard time locating it. While I could go on about employee appreciation (or lack of), lack of succession planning and employee development, among other issues, I will spare you. I believe if this company would like to continue operating ethically and effectively as a profitable business, it needs a serious overhaul in terms of organizational structure. "A bad management team can take a good staff and destroy it, causing the best employees to leave and the remainder to lose all motivation".

    I worked at Flex-N-Gate full-time

    Pros

    The employees are great, dedicated people. They just want to make a living and come to work and be treated fairly.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment One Manager controls the entire plant. If you disagree with him at any time or you do not spend your entire day tending to his needs, start looking for a new job because your days are numbered. Corporate management are in and out of the plant so they only see what a certain Manager wants them to see. The facility is so broken (from equipment to the culture) anyone who has the ability to fix it, won't. I The Manager causing the toxic work environment even has his bosses afraid of him. The plant is so behind the times regarding technology The union runs the resources department. They have full access to any and all employees records Corporate comes in and dictates new policies and procedures yet they sit in an office hours away and have no idea how these policies impact each facility. They are kicked off and then revised several times after the MGMT at the facility bring back concerns. Do your homework first!!!! The Managers who truly care and are good, they never last. The Managers who should have been weeded out, end up having lifelong careers. As for rules and policies - if you are liked or the Company is afraid of you - you can do whatever you want. If you come in, do your job and don't suck up to the plant manager, you will be written up, harassed and treated poorly. Also, do not expect anything to remain confidential, your personal business will be spread throughout the plant, quicky and always.
