Poor Management
International Shipping Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHNovember 1, 2018
Hires friends to be Supervisors, who have been caught sleeping in a company van, on overtime. A morale killer. It's stressful to work under someone who hasn't deserved the position, when you work 10x as hard as they have.

Great Company
Engineering (Former Employee) –  Florence, KYOctober 30, 2018
This is a wonderful company to work for but don't expect a progression plan. They take 10 times too long to make decisions and have no advancement plans for their staff. They are very transparent about the business. They however lack the motivation to be to excel. They prefer status quo.
Pros
Stable work environment
Cons
no plan for advancement

Great company to work for. A well managed company!
Director, Global Application Services (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHOctober 20, 2018
One of the best company I worked for in my career. Was there for 10+years. Great leadership and vision. Consistent culture supported by French background. Treats people like human beings rather than just a number. I would recommend this company for anyone who is serious about growth in their career.
Pros
Great culture and leadership
Cons
Pay is below market. However, they never payoff people for saving money

Very laid back environment.
Sr. Regional Project Engineer (Current Employee) –  East Hanover, NJMay 23, 2018
Not a place for high energy employees who want to improve. They talk the talk, but don't walk the walk.
A very immature company with regard to safety, gmp, operational management, etc.
Too many very weak managers at very high levels.
However, management likes to place bodies around the world. So, many opportunities for international travel.
Pros
People are nice.
Cons
Very poorly managed. Disarray.

Ok people no accountability
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHMay 16, 2018
Management is spineless. The most senior workers there think they are above everyone else. No training or matrix in place to show workers what is needed to progress. The benefits are good and so is the pay. Overall not a bad place to work but the lack of real management could prove detrimental.
