    I have been working at Barnes Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great Pay, work hard and it pays off. NO micromanagement , great culture. company was not set for major growth which justifys the sell off. great reputation in the industry. pays salary plus commission. best people i have ever worked with. the hr team does a great job of hiring, average employee is with company forever

    Cons

    SOLD off to MSC, Money Money Money, this company did not have that focus until the MSC purchase. we were all about the customer.

    I have been working at Barnes Group full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    In the region I am in there are several talented individuals, from the reps up to the RSM. We are encouraged daily. Barnes has an extensive education and information system. They are truly concerned about their people. They want the reps to be successful, and they want us to have fun.The plan expectations can be daunting, but once you get your head around it, it's challenging and fun. I am GRATEFUL for every day I get to go to work for Barnes. This is actually the second time I have worked for Barnes. Every job has it's frustrating issues. You just have to put your head down and plow through.

    Cons

    Antiquated wireless capabilities.( still better than doing it by hand!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Design a new hire " things you'll need" package.

    I worked at Barnes Group

    Pros

    All Non-sales/non-union employees are bonus eligible, unique in industry. Very competitive benefits package. Management places significant emphasis on development programs. Opportunity to gain financial security with restricted stock and options for eligible employees.

    Cons

    Demanding culture, very process driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on management development and promotions from within. Grow the company faster with acquisitions.
