    I have been working at Actuant full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The HR function is getting more respect and a lot of that has to do with my Manager.
    Still pockets of the old style of management (Actuant bought us 2 years ago).
    Most functions outside of HR Operations do not know what to do

    Cons

    The strategy doesn't reach all levels of the company.
    The bonus program looks good but has not been paid out in full in 2 years

    Pros

    Great working environment, good work opportunities in a diversified company

    Stressful job. Need to hire more people. Everyone is or becomes a workaholic.

    Hire more people! And do something to improve work life balance!

    a good place to work and learn. There are valuable lessons to learn through both up and down business cycles.

    Pros

    easy access to management, fact based decision making, transparency, open door policy.

    Cons

    benefits package could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there will always be tough decisions when you are in an extended down business cycle. But, the manufacturing sector is resilient and will rebound.

    Pros

    Good bonus structure if you are in the right industry. Nice people. Good for personal development and learning.

    Cons

    Actuant is largely Finance driven, whereas decisions are mostly finance based. Actuant has 3 different industries (formerly 4). Bonus is being granted industry wide, so if your company has great results, but the other companies in the same industry fail to meet targets, there will be no payout of bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for opportunities and listen to your customers
