Rumor is that Paul Mueller Company is getting a big chunk of the stimulus money and here is how it will probably break down;

50% will go to a local tool and machining company so they can build a larger facility to house the equipment donated from the Pre Processing department.
25% goes to the Board members for allowing such a pathetic staff to remain employed.
10% to renovate the executive staff offices and lounge.
10% to cover some of the ridiculous decisions made by the Maintenance department.
The remaining 5% will be gave to the Nuke Nerd Herd to keep financing the third attempt to write a Nuke quality manual and pay for lunch meetings.
Now that there are more office people than workers, I guess it is time to move our business to China at a new shop with lower wages to pay out..........

I have been under Brutus Bluto off and on for several years. Muellers likes to play musical positions every time the Executive staff has a brain fart. I had to be a liason between Muellers and a customer who was witnessing some product testing and I was so embarrassed when the customer representative asked me " why is it that every time we come to PMC there is a different person in the position that they deal with. I had to tell them the truth that our Managers were not aware this was a problem because they are not in touch with reality. Another manufacturing Biopharm equipment Technician and I had to explain (Very Secretly)that our Managers / Directors were living in another world but we would try to deal with the serious quality and schedule deficiencies at our level to avoid even more delays. I used to love PMC but our company has fell victim to a short term scam artist.

Don't know how this link was sent to me but someone sure does know whats going on. I have never seen our company in such bad shape but the Big man they call "BLUTO" has pushed the company into a corner it may never get out of. Unless the Brothers machine shop flourishes or the President of the company gives the idiot a position outside of Springfield he too will hit bottom. I am truly embarrassed that we outnumber the floor personnel. I know the buzz word around work is Nuclear but we have so many out of control processes, lame management, poorly trained supervisors and a company warranty man who is way out of his league. Anyway the Nuclear team is made up of completely clueless, pretty, thong bearing no names so what do we expect from this comedy of errors. Our Nuclear leader truly believes he is like "a surfer waiting on the next big wave to come in". That statement is in quotes because the idiot loves to make that statement. Time to start thinking about a new job or retirement! Thanks Willard Man you drove it in to the ground like you did everywhere else. You and Rolling Rock, Broken Kneed, Silver headed Fox,( ttaM) took PMC down! CONTACT THE BOARD IF YOU GET THIS MESSAGE!

How could an entire company allow a group of horrible managers run a company into the ground? I have been here for many years and it is disheartening to see people like "Brutus" and his little red headed toad, make some really stupid decisions. Either the morons sold us out to Holland or who knows where but it damn sure won't help us. The funny thing is, the people they think are loyal to them feel ashamed and worried about the impact of what they are forced do. Ohhhh yea I have to mention the side show carnival that are referred to as the "Nuke" team, we can't even engineer wine tank heads what in the world makes them think we can do business with a critical process like Nuclear. Holy smokes somebody is flat out dreaming.
