I have been working at Barnes Group full-time (More than 5 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookRecommendsPositive Outlook
Parent company sets tone from top. Very caring. Opportunities exist at other divisions: Aerospace, Industrial, Corporate in CT. Employees are held in high regard. Good 401K and very good retirement for those who have been here awhile.
As with a company, there will be politics. However, Corporate does play a heavy hand if needed. Use the 800 line if needed. Employees need to have a clear understanding of how to increase their value and their compensation. Don't trust speaking with those in authority - it comes back to bite you.
Advice to Management
Don't ever forgot the Team philosophy. HR should be driving the culture (needs work).
