    Great Experience, Great People

    Marketing Communications (Former Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsThe culture was incredible - great balance between working hard and playing hard. A lot of opportunities to get promoted within. Great pay and benefits. For such a large company, you feel like you actually have a voice that is getting heard (which I've found to be rare within large organizations).

    ConsIn all honesty... no cons come to mind. As long as you are willing to put in the work, you will be recognized and rewarded.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

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

    I learned A LOT and was able to grow exponentially in my career.

    Marketing Communications Manager (Former Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsVery forward and marketing-oriented thinking for an engineering-based organization.

    ConsThe company doesn't always do its due diligence when hiring. Tendency to overlook key gaps in both skill sets and personality/management style in deference to hiring someone from a Fortune 100/500 company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not overlook talent because they do not have a "pedigree" or are over 40.
