Interesting place to work
Manager and Security Systems Administrator (Former Employee) –  Norcross, GA8 February 2018
As a security manager and systems administrator, it interesting to play the role of loss prevention and security in this industry where maintaining trade secrets is important. Learning how the remote controlled security systems work was fascinating. I enjoyed the respect shown to security staff even though we were contracted to this organization.
Pros
Learning about technology innovation
Cons
Not much room for growth in security position.

excellent benefits, cut-throat environment
Senior Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Carrollton, GA16 September 2017
This company offers excellent benefits and compensation. At this point in my life and career, I wasn't willing to put in the time that it would've took to move into a dayshift position. There were guys waiting in line with 17 years seniority. As it is with most companies, the better the job, the more you have be willing to tolerate. OFS is no exception to that rule. Any mistakes that were made were usually extremely costly to the company. This promotes a blame game, cut-throat environment across the board between employees and departments. Management, of course, never took responsibility for their poor decision making and lastly the brown-nosers did well in this environment. There seemed to be a lot of tension in the air at all times and since expectations were so high, the finger-pointing was a constant. I never felt like this environment offered a good work/life balance because of the hours and stress.
Pros
incentive bonus
Cons
cut-throat environment

Hurry up and wait culture. Would have two weeks with practically nothing to do and then two weeks where overtime was required to meet deadlines. Great to keep busy...awful when bored.

High stress, no team based drive
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Carrollton, GA17 June 2017
The managers are extremely inexperienced, and demand an unhealthy amount of production per person. Too much micromanaging and not enough upper management involvement. They don't know or care what goes on on the floor, just that you're making them a hearty bonus.
Pros
A lot of pto. Decent insurance. Decent pay.
Cons
Management doesn't exist. They expect you to produce too much without enough material

OFS is probably a typical manufacturing company but it is more concerned and involved with it's employees.
Receiving Associate (Current Employee) –  Carrollton, GA8 May 2017
OFS is a great place to work. Great management team and cares about its employees. Company provides bonuses for hard work and productivity. Provides very good heath benefits and a 401 profit sharing plan. Company demands top performance but provides a somewhat laid back comfortable work environment.
Pros
Have cookouts from time to time. Provide dinners and parties throughout the year for employees
Cons
sometimes ask to work overtime to meet customer demands

Management out of touch
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Avon, CT6 March 2017
The benefits, pay, and work life flexibility are the greatest aspects of this company. However, management is completely out of touch with what's going on. There is very little room for vertical advancement. Lots of hourly people waste as much time as possible and are there just for the paycheck.

unethical management with no regards to anyones life outside of work
A person who cares (Current Employee) –  Norcross, GA1 February 2017
Although this company is a great place to work and the co-workers are exceptional, the management tends to forget the importance of YOUR life, the fact that you are sometimes forced to work these mandatory days even on your day off says a lot about the general care of your well being and health, the fact that management seems to be fine with the factory workers working on a 7 day coverage while office personnel enjoy's their weekends resting assured that all will be taken care of tells me that there is no integrity or loyalty.
life can really be great with a company like this, the pay is comfortable and very competitive over time, but the upper management needs to reconsider their approach on quantity versus quality, they need to go back to a 5 day coverage and give people their lives back so that they can reboot and come back rested and prepared to give 120% safely without incidents or they ALL need to be in there working a 7 day coverage like everyone else.

Stand Strong In What Matters Most....
Pros
Competitive pay great benefits
Cons
7 Day Coverage/ lack of empathy

Extruder Operator (Former Employee) –  1 Brightwave Blvd Carrollton, Ga28 December 2016
Clock in. Talk with lead and then with previous extruder operator. Perform a walk through by checking compound levels, print, Kevlar, etc. Keep line operating throughout the 12 hour work day, as well as cleaning, taking measurements, and performing changeovers and color changes per schedule.

Wood Lagger (Former Employee) –  Carrollton, GA6 November 2016
Everything is fairly good with this company except the management team is not interested in the health and safety of it's employees. The area over by shipping and receiving is mold infested and I got a mold infection because of it. They saran wrap their planks that sit on pallets and because of it traps moisture into the wood which sits around for a long time accumulating mold. I asked to be moved to another location since I was only having problems in my work area, they said it would take a while longer, even though the infection was causing me to puke every other day if not sometimes every day. It got so bad I had to quit and the management personnel said I wouldn't be able to reapply once a position in another area opened up. All of this considering I was one of their hardest working employees and my quality, production numbers were way above average.
Pros
People are good to work with

Precision Assembler II (Current Employee) –  Somerset, NJ13 October 2016
most of the working days goes smooth as to the planning, learned a lot about fiber optics, management is a bit reluctant which It could improve, get along with most of my co workers but its mostly a diversity between races, completing requirements due to when the orders have to get done and shipped, the most enjoyable part of my job is getting the orders finished before required time and going out every now and then to eat with co workers.

Typical Warehouse situation but a scheduling nightmare
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Norcross, GA15 March 2016
A typical warehouse job with very nice people and respectful management with the exception of the schedule.Production is expected to rise consistently although the hours are high.56 hour weeks but you are only paid for 40 with the way the schedule is constructed.Being tired is the norm, employee morale is low and a lot of complaining on a daily schedule. You are basically working overtime every week but are not compensated for it
Pros
good people, respectful, calm
Cons
terrible schedule, always tired

Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Norcross, GA15 July 2015
Get into work and prep up for work grabbing spools in the first 20 minutes. Job was a great and always learning something everyday. Management was okay, supervisors knocked heads sometimes with each other but still managed to clear orders. Co-workers are awesome, always willing to help with questions on working things. The hardest part of the job, was pushing 7 days straight before getting the 2 days off. Most enjoyable part of the job was running the machines.
Pros
Awesome supervisor, co-workers, loving job
Cons
7 day coverage and also on Third shift
