Paul J. van der Wansem
Pros – Some very bright marketing, engineering and sales people dedicated to work together.
Cons – Industry is crowded, innovations take time to commercialize.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Employees are good at bringing new employees up to speed and sharing information.
Cons – Management does not treat employees well. Expect a 1-week shutdown at least once or twice a year, which forces you to take vacation or file unemployment. There is no opportunity for advancement. Overall morale is very low. On my very first day at orientation, I was told by HR that people at BTU have created a "funny" acronym: "Better Than Unemployment".
Advice to Senior Management – Expand your product portfolio so that you dont have to force shutdowns every year. Make individuals (managers and engineers) accountable for their action/non-action.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Low pressure, very flexible work hours, good life/work balance.
Cons – Low pay & benefits, industry outlook is insecure. There have been layoffs.
Advice to Senior Management – None.
