The supervisor is a good listener. If you don't understand the task of the day they are willing to help .They provide new strategies every day , they follow the company motor.

Micro management, overall not a good place to be employed by
Management not sure in what they want, they say one thing and do another.

Does not allow you to practice your expertise, stuck in old fashioned methodology.

The products were very robust and suited to the environment and conditions the are used under. The way that the sales were done resulted in unnecessary stress and costs on the production side.
Pros
Good benfits

Good people to work with all team players. Learned a lot in the safety field and engineering. Excellent management and support. we have a great safety culture all my personnel are on par with what needs to be done and how to perform it safely. Hardest part of the work is to start a new contract and to get all the requirements for compliance to get it all into place. Good friendships are what makes all of the days exiting to work.

Cannot take leave in December/January because of Auditors

Great people at all levels of the company - it's like joining a family and everyone is supportive of each other and has a great time together.
A great culture - coming to work is fun and there are always nights out and something for everyone

Amazing part of this company is it does not let you feel like you are a employee. It feels like a family. Work is good and great seniors to guide. You feel you are in safe hands.
Pros
- Best place, best management and best infrastucture
Cons
none

Enjoyed every minute of working in this company, I must say. Although they could've remunerated me better.

Colleagues are decent people to work with, always professional.

The job I had with this company was fantastic. The hours were great the people were great, the pay was fantastic and I really enjoyed doing the work. It served my need to be extremely organized and detail orientated. It was a new position for me something I hadn't done before and I felt right at home with it within a few days. I found my groove and went with it and helped streamline some of the processes to help both the customers and my colleagues. It was very unfortunate when my contract came to an end.
Pros
Close to home, good working hours
Cons
Never got the chance to work there permanently
