If you enjoy working for lead hands and supervisors that have no idea how to run a company and keep their employees motivated then this is the place for you. Team leads are not concerned with quality of work just quantity, just get things out the door, good or bad doesn’t matter. They will hire anyone off the street then get rid of you just as fast. There’s no room to grow in this company. Their motto is safety first but safety is the last thing that they really think about unless something happens and when it does they’ll just blame you for not being aware of your surroundings and walk you out the door. The employees there for the most part are great. Centra is a sinking ship and hopefully the good employees there smarten up and don’t go down with it.
Pros
Pay was ok
Cons
Management is only looking out for themselves

It is part of a big corporate now, but didn't change much at all. Pay is very low, or at least for me it was (ranges were all over the place). Job security? If you work hard for less pay, you will be fine, but will never have a chance to advance your career, despite your skills or qualifications.
Worked for 10 years, waiting to move on with my career, but just played "catching" or better say "throwing" game. I moved on with my career when I finally had enough and moved out there.

Management and CEO's turnovers made it more difficult to advance employees too, and definitely will make harder to evaluate the CEO below, (which one to pick?)
Pros
You have a job.
Cons
Cannot advance your career.

Pros - Pay was okay, the people there were great, friendly.

Cons - Zero communication with staff from management, no room for advancement at all. Don’t bother complaining, or expressing your concerns at all, in one ear and out the other.


Okay if you’re inexperienced or new.

This is a good place to work if you want steady employment. It is also a good place to move up and learn new jobs. However they do not seem to want to pay you the usual rate once you move up. People are not that friendly either.
Pros
Over time and steady employment
Cons
Not a friendly place. Everyone only cares about their self

Centra is an ok place to work. Nothing extremely bad or extremely good. Just an average workplace. Pay and benefits are in line with other similar companies.
Pros
Steady work.
Cons
Shift work. 12 hour nightshifts are very difficult.

If you are in production it is often forgotten about vs. machining. Poor quality, and poor assembly. Unsafe work standards. Not ergonomically thought out assembly stations. Very poor pay to assemblers.

Wow.
Managers all over the place (and "directors"). Nowhere to find true leader in this place.They are stuck somewhere in the past and just follow the orders of one/two persons, No initiative to implement any changes (resisting to changes because they are scared for their positions)

Salary is OK

No room for advancement unless you are relative or drinking buddy.

Good and intelligent people are leaving too soon.

Try to seek work somewhere else if you can

managers, directors, shift/cell leads, culture, ....

Work somewhere else, don’t invest your life in a sinking ship. The company will cease to exist after 2022
Management can be described as inept at best, destructive at worst. This company has been in a steady decline since 2013.
Pros
Pay
Cons

I enjoyed the work that I did there. Clean facilty, jobs are well layed out with information like how to setup and check jobs. Descent pay and compensation package.

Only problem I have is how can a company who says their #1 priority is employee health and safety, force them to work a shift that takes years off your life expectancy. Rotating 12 hour continental shift is very bad for you, I had to quit because my body couldnt take it anymore after 1 year.
Pros
Good work life. Benefits. Pension plan.
Cons
Rotating continental shift

Maintenance expected to take care of 2 facilities on the offshifts alone. Maintenance has a hard time keeping members because low pay and working alone on shift. Reviews aren’t worth the time. Buddy buddy system. Dead end place, very cheap to their maintenance persons. No tool allowance and talked down to by everyone. Expected to be a janitor on a daily basis. Go elsewhere.
Pros
Overtime
Cons
Micro managed
