    Great Work Culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere is a lot of room for personal growth. Everyone in the company is very nice and welcoming, and makes it easy to feel comfortable and right at home.

    ConsThe number of locations available to work at are limited, and aren't in any urban areas. You might have to make quite the commute to get to work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Best choice I've made

    Finance Controller (Current Employee)
    Columbus, IN

    ProsSenior Leadership is clear on mission, values and long term goals. Ability to move around frequently within or across functions. Stock performs well so 401k is good. We are a great corporate citizen and live out our values

    ConsWork life isn't always great. Base salary is lower than industry. HR processes are long and cumbersome

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great employer

    Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    Columbus, IN

    ProsWhile each division (Business Unit) operates pretty independently and slightly differently, overall the company is a great large company to work for. They value their employees and actively promote from within. Company does very large amount of community outreach and charitable giving. Strong sense of social values including vocal opposition to anti-gay legislation proposed in HQ state.

    ConsJust average salary and benefits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAll of the upper mgmt people I have heard speak at internal meetings are really impressive. I believe the company is in good hands.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Work Culture

    Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee)
    Columbus, IN

    ProsAmazing work culture, people are given space to do things their way. Flexibility in work hours, superiors are accommodating and supportive.

    ConsBeing a big organization, as an intern i didn't find many opportunities to explore various functions within the organization. Also, I was assigned on a single project which constrained my domain.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAccommodation was tough to find. Please provide accommodation to interns.
