Manufacturing Associate Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Manufacturing Associate?

Manufacturing Associate in Framingham:
"At Least The Pay Is Good."
Pros: Good pay and fair amount of respect for employees and their time. Ample time-off and good benefits.
Cons: Repetitive work, following SOPs, does not leave room for creativity or critical thinking. End-year shutdown period handling in terms of pay for essential employees (who must be at work on holidays and shutdowns) has been botched 100% of the time, resulting in loss of hundreds of dollars of pay per employee; resolutions usually not seen for many months after (even up to a year later). Promotions and raises do not reflect the merit or capability of the employee, rather are highly dependent on the employee's popularity with management. Sub par level of performance is tolerated, and efforts to improve that situation are few and far between. Rationale for decisions usually not disseminated to "lower level" employees, nor are those employees involved in such decisions, despite having valuable information to offer. Cross training is almost non-existent. Breaks are rarely scheduled and a culture of scorning those who indulge their right to breaks is palpable.
