    I have been working at Kaydon as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Being a design engineer at Kaydon is not bad - you get to put your hands into a little bit of everything engineering related. You get to go to every training meeting, you are considered as an asset in projects, and you will learn a bunch. While it looks like a dump (and frankly, parts of it are), the equipment and techniques are state of the art. Furthermore, everyone is quite friendly.

    Cons

    I declined a position at Kaydon because I see myself being there for only 5 years - the job gets repetitive fast (Rings and Seals are only so interesting for so long) and there is no room to grow. Also, I understood that raises are miniscule at best and the company is beginning to stagnate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the company's value, not only the bottom line. This means putting more money into research, fixing the money holes in the plant's roof, and, in general, doing what Koppers used to do.
