Third Party Administrator (Former Employee), Boonton, NJDecember 19, 2013
Days started early and ended late. Totally loved my job and what I did daily, Enjoyed interaction with my many co-workers.
Management was extremely secretive and was not forthcoming in visions and goals and tight with pay raises, Advancement was almost non-existent with minority groups pretty much locked out. attitude towards women could have been much – more... better than it was. Expected to be 110% accurate at all times. Achievements were rarely acknowledges and mistakes used to keep promotions and pay increases at a minimum. – less

Quality Control technician (Former Employee), Oak Creek, WINovember 8, 2013
Pros: yearly bonuses
Cons: 2008 fulough
Working along with 6 plant personnel testing batches was frequent and the entire day. I was so suffiecient so management was hardly necessary. All of my co-workers were very helpful if I became overwhelmed. If small batches were needed to be made at times that would interfere with QC testing so some days could be rough.
I really liked the amount of – more... work coming my way. The day would go by extremely fast and also it taught me alot about multi tasking. – less

My manager is a person who organizes and coordinates the activities of the rest of the staff. In this day and age, an ideal manager should be decent, honest, friendly and a patient person. He must take risks to be successful.

Process Operator (Current Employee), Neches, TXDecember 14, 2012
Pros: young men can come get experience and move on to better plants in area
Cons: evrything: from the culture to woking conditions
This facility has been around since the second World War. What's interesting is that it probably has the same culture and work mentality of that time. Management is very hardore, heavy handed, work conditions and environment are bad, and because of such high employee turnover, people who are left are MADE to work every off day until they say otherwise. – more... what can i say; a labor camp disguised as a workplace. – less

Technical Sales Representative (Current Employee), Saint Paul, MNDecember 12, 2012
Checked equipment daily, did testing to ensure chemistries were at proper dosages, talked to customers about projects/goals/how we could help, management has room for improvement, and company resources stretched thin.
