    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).

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Barnes Group.


    Initial conversation through headhunter referred me to Talent Acquisition Specialist who did an informal phone screen. This progressed into a personality assessment for the role and conversation with the hiring manager. Process went on for a number of weeks/months.
