    Great strong company. Good benefits, good working environment, good pay. Doesn't optimize people strengths to position

    I worked at Timken

    Pros

    Good pay, good working environment, people are professional. Focused on bottom line.

    Cons

    Difficult to expand horizons if doing your job well( pigeon-holed). People's strengths are not optimized/ aligned to positions. This may improve with new HR system as it matures.
    Maybe too focused on bottom line and losing people focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Must optimize workforce performance/satisfaction by letting people work in positions which utilize/maximize their strengths and potential rather than growing stagnant in a position they do well, yet their strengths are under utilized. This would really improve bottom line. Concern for people has diminished significantly with extreme focus to numbers.
