    Great place for an engineer

    Mold Design Engineer (Former Employee) Findlay, OH (US)

    ProsGreat work environment, especially good management and fellow workers. Even when you're new you are encouraged to contribute and your ideas are taken seriously. Good compensation.

    Unstable, Behind the times, good 'ol boy network liars

    Supervisor (Former Employee) Findlay, OH (US)

    ProsFlexible schedule, good luck finding anything besides this positive to say about the company.

    ConsCompany leadership is 100% "Good ol Boy" club. Diversity and Inclusion is non-existent. If you are a monority of any kind do not put yourself through the hassle and unequal treatment environment and culture there. Work systems and methodologies are at least 20 years behind the time. They say SAP but the system is garbage as the company did not invest in Reporting the SAP system is bare bones and majority of work is still through manual spreadsheets. No work life balance. Rules for some and guidelines for others mentality. Very much an age and race based corporation that has no intention of changing and making their work environment more diverse. Amazed to see this culture still exist in 2014. The leadership at the Findlay plant have no people skills, and only hire their friends. They pay for some people's education, and do not let them move up or utilize their skills. You can NOT be a critical thinker if you want to succeed here, be a dependent learner, do as little as possible, screw up as much as you can and you're guaranteed to get a promotion.
