    I have been working at AAON full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of intelligent and personable people to work with and learn from across many technical disciplines. Company has grown rapidly so there are expected to be many opportunities for advancement in the future.

    Cons

    Compensation is sometimes slow to keep up with increased responsibility and efficiency of employee. Company has grown rapidly and has not hired employees to match the rate of growth. Company expects employees to work hard and efficiently to produce the work of multiple employees at other companies. This environment may not be for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow, advance, trust, and compensate talented employees to sustain company growth. Delegate responsibilities to those capable to achieve more results.

    Pros

    They give you your own parking and office.

    Cons

    People are of an older generation that is stubborn, grumpy, and unprofessional. They will never take blame for any mistakes and will steal all credit for any work completed, as managers are concerned. The human resources department was a nightmare! They broke quite a few federal laws while i was employed. Also, this later led to me getting unemployment even though they tried to fire me on grounds of "misconduct". Too bad they didn't document that anywhere. In fact, for all anybody knows i just got laid off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to recognize when someone is trying to reduce cost that will save money to the tune of several million dollars over a ten year course. You should promote these kinds of people, not punish them. Also, make sure to actually give what you promise. I never got the following promised things: salary, benefits, ADA compliant office equipment, bonus, raise, promotion. They were the most shadiest people that i could work for. There turnover rate was terrible, as well -- try to keep workers by treating them like people instead of numbers on a dot-matrix printout.

    I worked at AAON full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They do things very old-fashioned. If you're old and don't like change this is the place for you.

    Cons

    They will lie to you about salary, job duties, responsibilities, and benefits. Supervisors will abuse you and expect you to take it with a smile. You will never get promoted, a raise, stock options, or your own office even if you're promised these things. It's the worst place you could work for...anywhere else would be better! The Human Resources department is virtually non-existent, as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lie to your employees about salary, job duties, responsibilities, and benefits. Make sure you hire people that are fit for the job instead of assuming they will just "catch-on" even if they have no experience doing the job when it requires years of previous experience.

    I worked at AAON full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    New, clean and up to date Warehouse with great working equipment and Employees. Everyone seems to work very well together to complete job task and work production orders. And after 6 months the company give you a sign on bonus with a lot of training and upgrade courses the company will pay for. A lot of room to grow and move up in pay and skill.

    Cons

    Point system with no room to change job for 1 year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To many different Supervisors to deal with, all with different ways to complete same job tasks at hand, this is due different day and night shift work through the week leaving plenty of room for mistakes with data entry and material handling and theft.

    Pros

    They have some good people working there.

    Cons

    The benefits are low-standard; the management treats most employees badly; a lot of the employees are usual grumpy & in a bad mood, and walking on eggshells, due to the attitude of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should revamp your management staff & find managers/supervisors who know how to talk to employees in a productive manner, & who won't take things personally when someone comes to them with an issue.

    New president is really great. Still face troubles a lot of companies do, lay offs, some less-than-capable employees, but overall a decent place to work.
