    I worked at Briggs & Stratton full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Briggs and Stratton is a good company to work for. I had so many people who believed in me and my work ethics that was willing to have faith in my abilities to perform the job that was required from me.

    Cons

    Can not say anything bad about Briggs and Stratton. I was giving a job and worked hard for the company and felt that they believed in me

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep believing in your people.

    I worked at Briggs & Stratton full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Hours, pay, co-workers. The atmosphere of friendship between all employees is great. From the engineers to management to the operators on the floor, everyone is a pretty close group.

    Cons

    Big organization and like most organizations, it can be clunky at times. Sometimes things do not get accomplished as quickly as a person might like due to the huge levels of organization to go through. Also, 5S is majorly stupid and non productive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much to share. They get the job done.

    Pros

    Clear expectations, good opportunities, easy to feel a sense of belonging.

    Cons

    The expected reliance on availability of discretionary income. In a consistently slow economy that can be a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the direction of leadership and innovation.

    I have been working at Briggs & Stratton as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Meaningful work, networking, exposure to all sides of technical projects. They will give you real projects to design, contact vendors for parts, attend meetings, present proposals, and many other things. They'll teach you how to be an engineer. The hours are very flexible around your school schedule. Awesome experience

    Cons

    Lower pay than other internships, but its still decent. I've heard the engineer salary here is low

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing at this point
