Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"-No structure, not following best practices, most employees haven't been to any other plant, don't know how to do run a plant, Very low salary, salary package is horrible"


"Extremely lean on personnel that everyone is over worked with no time to focus on quality work. Since they downsized so much company has lost so much knowledge. Disorganized with a lot of manual work refuses to utilize their software systems. Depending on your manager, some are no where to be found for weeks."


"The Upper Management is terrible"

"Management, Culture, Communication, Vision and Strategy"

Quality Control says

"I was so exposed to chemicals that when I now smell cleaning products my tongue burns. Peeling ceilings. OSHA must be paid off cause they don't ever visit, why not? It's a chemical company! They asked me to stay and train people after they laid me off."


"Senior "leadership". The CEO brought all of his friends from a previous company along and moved the company headquarters to Philadelphia because he didn't want to move. Interseting in a company that isn't making any money. The only trnasplant was a lower level HR manager that whispered the things the CEO wanted to hear so he could get promoted. None of the "leadership" is qualified to run a company, their only qualification is they sold a company together before and that's why they are here."

"This place is conatantly laying off and asking those left beind to assimilate more duties into an already full work week while not incurring overtime. Management changes its model far too much. There is always a "re-organization" going on. Due to all the layoffs, there is no opportunity for advancement."

You get paid weekly so you see what your making right when you need it !"
