Good place to learn bad place to stay and advance
Technical Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Houston, TX21 September 2015
Exposure to many things you probably would never do at a big company. Leadership is lacking a sense of direction and planning for the future. Many people don't last here more than 3 years. Job advancement is unclear and there is little to no training offered. The culture has become very negative due to the market conditions.

The people that work here are very good at what they do but largely under appreciated by their managers.

I would not recommend unless you plan on just learning and moving on.
Pros
Excellent work life balance and benefits
Cons
Upper management is terrible

A company with no true direction and lack of communication.
Manager - Cost Accounting (Former Employee) –  Houston, TX20 April 2016
This is a company that has a difficult time with communication at all levels of management. Most communication was based on a need to know basis. Unfortunately there was a high turnover ratio making it difficult to implement constructive change to improve manufacturing matrices and bottom line trends.
Pros
They are family oriented permitting flexible work schedules when needed.
Cons
Lack of communication at all levels of management.

All in all a pretty relaxed and safe environment to work.
MILL ASSISTANT TEAM LEADER (Former Employee) –  Camanche, IA11 November 2015
There is a good amount of support out of management as long as everyone is safe and productive. A lot of room for growth as long as you do what is asked of you in a timely safe fashion and you come to work on time when you scheduled to be there.
Pros
Its a personal work environment.
Cons
Swing 12 hour shifts and the career relies heavily on the market.

Production machining job. Very safe.
Production Operator (Former Employee) –  Brookfield, OH12 May 2016
Production job. You are given the tools you need to do your job well.

Safety comes first and it shows.

Very nice pay rate for this area, and entry level opportunities do not require much experience.

not a bad company to work for but communication from management makes it difficult at times
NDT Operator (Current Employee) –  Catoosa, OK25 March 2015
After a safety meeting we are assigned our positions and start our work day. Inspection of pipe for cracks and gouges on the pipe includes EMI, UT and Sheer wave inspections. Management is terrible at communications and changes are made with no consideration of time involved in changing the equipment to accommodate. If left alone to do the job, the job can be fun and the day goes by very quickly..
Pros
good compensation and benifits
Cons
schedule changes quite often with no concern for family or other obligations

Don't waste your time!
Accounting (Former Employee) –  Houston14 May 2013
The second week I started there an employee told me that she would not even bother to learn my name because the turnover in this company is terrible and nobody lasts more than a year, its true!!! In just a year I lost my job along with 5 coworkers in the same department!! Management makes changes without thinking of the end result they let good people go while they let the mediocre that makes all the mistakes stay. Other coworkers are desperately looking for other jobs.Very dissapointing experience. I wish I would have never accepted their job offer, they really wanted me take the job so they went above and beyond to offer me a good pay rate no other company will match what they were paying me I will end up having to accept a paycut.
