    Disappointed

    CNC Operator (Current Employee) Ozark, AR

    ProsPay and benefits on par with other employers in the area. Manufacturing plant is air conditioned.

    ConsRecent pay raises have been very small, barely keeping up the the increases in the cost of living (if you believe the governments numbers). In fact, when you factor in inflation and the increase to our insurance premioums, our pay has less value in 2012 than it had in 2011. This was especially disappointing given that Baldor posted record profits in 2011 and the local Ozark facility had a record year on several fronts as well. If you cannot get a real pay raise in that environment, you never will.

    Management has developed a habit of being "less than honest" with employees. One specific example of this breach in honesty is managements treatment of new hires. They have hired people through a temporary service with the promise of being hired full time in six months or less. As of the date of this review, there are several "temps" who have been at Baldor Ozark for mare than a year with no idea of when they might go full time.

    The competence of management is suspect. A specific example is the decision to rearrange equipment so that it will look nice for visitors. The function of a work area now takes a back seat to aesthetics.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should refocus thier efforts on the long term success of the company. Small pay increases and large numbers of "temps' will no doubt make this years numbers look a little better. The long term effect will be (1) a sharp decrease in your ability to hire and maintain the highest caliber employees, (2) damage to Baldor's reputation, (3) increased difficulty in meeting customer expectations.

    Baldor's culture has long been one of "treating employees so well that they do not want outside representation." Management should recommit themselves to this culture before the Teamsters get a foothold.

    Good Solid company. Great atmosphere

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat co-workers, family-like atmosphere. Good benefits. Room for advancement. There are a lot of older senior employees. Great place for a young person to start their career.

    ConsSalary for engineers is not good. Getting "promoted" sometimes just means you get the privilege of performing two jobs instead of one.

    Manufacturing Engineer

    Manufacturing EngineerMi (Current Employee)

    ProsExcellent work atmosphere. Coworkers are great. Great Benefits. Company has a "no layoff" strategy during down times.

    ConsSalary is not very good compared to other companies. Employees are often overburdened with too many responsibilities. "Getting promoted" simply means you add a slash to the end of your current title and assume additional responsibilities with a modest raise.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompany needs to hire more engineers in key areas.
