    I have been working at Smiths Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good culture - strong focus on ethical behaviour.

    Work/life balance is good.

    Emphasis on development and training of staff, even though it's sometimes difficult to see.

    Cons

    Benefits - health and 401k/retirement/pension - have gone downhill in recent years

    Sometimes difficult to advance - there is some hiring from within, but the more senior positions tend to be from outside.

    Bonuses only seem to be available to senior management, and base pay increases of anything more than 1-2% are rare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the review system. A 1-5 system doesn't make sense if 95% of people get a 3. Implement bonuses and/or raises at all levels tied to a combination of personal objectives and business performance.

    Interview Details

    After applying to Smiths Power, a Smiths Groups company, I was contacted by the hiring manager to schedule an interview. Initially, the interview was scheduled for Skype, but he switched to phone. The second question he asked was when I got my degrees. Clearly, one of his priorities was determining my age. I sent him an e-mail after indicating I would have no further interest.
