    Former Employee - Sales in Cleveland, OH

    I worked at Barnes Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people were farily friendly across the board. The interview process was very nice and fairly quick without much delay. The product line was ok, however, when you needed something outside the catalog there were many delays and phone calls.

    Cons

    When the new President was hired (the axe man) he had no emotional ties and didn't really care about the people. I would question his true character, however, his motives were clear...$$. Reduce salaries and try to convince everyone in the organization that the new pay structure would allow you to make more money!! Unfortunately, middle management had to deliver the news and even they didn't believe it (that was my opinion). Leadership was therefore very questionable and certainly they convinced the "share holders" this was the way to go. All promotions were shut down. Not sure how the organization is structured today.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead with character. Understand that flexibility is key in the field and provide middle management with the ability to make decisions if it makes sense. Soften your hard lines to gray. Understand that retention of your client base is of extreme importance and it takes more time then you allow to obtain new clients. It's a difficult economy and perhaps top leadership needs to have their salaries reduced. Treat your employees like they really matter and retention won't be a problem. Pay them well, real talent is hard to find even in this economy! Good luck.
