"I work for MSA since May 2013, initiating and leading an E-Ordering program. The business had grown 10 fold and leading now a team of 2. I am technology limited for not having a laptop, a basic tool, to present the program and lead meeting, by depending on a loaner laptop... the management is out-dated and limited the continuity and growth of a unique product."

"This place has some of the lowest wages for the amount of education required to complete the job for any other place I have worked.The facilities are very old, building was constructed around 1940 I believe. Things are rusted, it has bad ventilation. There are very few places to go out to lunch.You have to be an employee for a few years before being given a parking spot in the parking lot near the building. Otherwise you have to arrive 25 minutes early and take a shuttle from a remote lot."

"The management is honestly abusive. Literally.It is not unknown to receive hand-scrawled abusive notes from executive level management calling people names for violating some obscure policy. I know this will sound insane, but it is true. I kept a copy of just such a note my cube-neighbor received because she left her laptop out over night. ONCE. It is the archetype of friends promoting friends and punishing anyone that doesn't roll with the program."

"Fire half of your staff that has been there 20 years or longer.establish anti-nepotism policies.encourage innovation and process improvements."
