Your management there insurance Texas is committing fraud

Listen to the works who are on the floor and see the problem daily

Find ways to reduce over time. 10 hrs/ day at least and Saturdays was not very sustainable

Review from Operations Dept

Favourism is to be avoided & hard work to be Considered.

Culture varies amongst groups, management styles and expectations.

Let people do what they are good at. Mgmt and especially HR interfere a lot. VERY liberal HR that takes sides and treats people differently dependent on who it is.

To improve the culture I would recommend eliminating the politics, ensure a clear chain of command that's drives a sense of empowerment within teams and hire more outside talent to drive company growth.

Operation capacity and locations availability to labor needs to be taken into consideration. Currently the work load of facilities is well above ohysical and labor availability

Take a good hard look at your middle management. They will make or break the culture.

Stop discriminating against lgbt, communicate better

Review from Operations Dept

Executive office change would make this company work better.

Review from Engineering Dept

Management to do its job and treat their workers fairly

Overall it is good; starting to focus more on safety as it seems like daily individuals are getting injured on the job.

Actually putting their money where there mouth is. They constantly preach about how safety is the number one priority. Yet their actions show that velocity,cost, and quality are always put in front.

Review from Product Dept

The executive team, need to lead by example show thoughtful and caring leadership and be a team. They are not a team.

Get someone else run the parts department

Review from Operations Dept

Management we only have one good one out of about 5

Review from Engineering Dept

Management should stop making changes that effect associates without having focus group meetings for feedback. Focus groups and one on one meeting are not happening any longer. RIW’s not happening any longer at Waco DC

Review from Customer Support Dept

Treat the hourly working people like humans and more pay for more skill
