I hope the rumors I’ve herd today aren’t true. Well if they do have layoffs I hope the do them after Christmas.

Everyone is on 40 hours a week and yet there are those who find nothing wrong with asking everyone at work to borrow money. It wouldn’t be so bad if the money was actually paid back, but it isn’t. And when confronted about the owed money, this person... — read more
Contractors here doing unnecessary contractors are here doing stupid c-ap. Spending money that we apparently don’t have due to us not having work.
With the Singapore Roller Cone plant finally gone, the UK Stonehouse matrix PDC bit production now ceased (Which probably indicates the intention is to close Stonehouse completely at some point), looks like the latest management decision is to move... — read more

Seriously...it’s time for this CEO and his minions to step down. Nearly a quarter billion loss in the 3rd qtr. The company has not made an annual profit since 2014 or since Napoleon took over. A LOT more restructuring to come... — read more

Please take a real hard look at the HR department at the Tower and specifically the people who report directly to you. They are clueless at their job and are just there twiddling their thumbs and waiting to go to lunch. It is an embarrassment and... — read more
