"The management."
Pros: Exposure to chemical production and large scale production. The company has a great set of guiding principles that are a great business model to want to work and live by. The pay for the position is good and the benefits after 5 years with the company kick in with a pension and receiving 6% matching garneted with the 401K (base on salary).
Cons: The plant I work for has a lot of outdated systems to operate the equipment we run everyday. They continuously want to shrink our work force but the outdate equipment makes it difficult to meet the standards they want us to produce. They want to keep cutting positions and make those that are left take up the slack. If we had the equipment technology to support us there wouldn't be a problem but when personal are physically required to operate parts of the equipment it makes for a lot of work and more chance to create errors.
