    Pros

    Malta, NY Fab 8 - Good Food and nice new equipment.

    Cons

    The management are good people as well. However, they sometimes make bad decisions which cost the company money and cause good employees to leave. The training is terrible too. The trainers do not have any patience to train their trainees and they yell at their trainees which makes the trainee frightened to ask questions and cause them to second guess themselves. Frankly, some of the trainers were simply abusive. It's bad business.

    Pros

    Decent pay, good benefits, that's about it

    Cons

    Horrible work life balance. little to no training available. A high school graduate could have done the maintenance tasks I was required to do. Little to no chance for advancement I was the senior person on shift but new guys where being hired at higher pay and job titles since that's the only way they could recruit new people
