    A necessary evil

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Queensbury, NY

    ProsSome great people
    They try to help in the community
    They make small, periodic efforts to show employees they are valued

    ConsMany decent managers, but a handful of very bad managers that ruin things for everyone else. Management isn't just about getting results, it's about effectively managing people. I don't care how great a company is, if I have a bad manager, then he or she is my reality for 40+ hours per week.
    Very limited room for advancement, and often the candidate is chosen before the position is even posted for bidding (although they swear this is not the case). I know this because I was told first-hand by someone involved in the hiring decisions.
    No longer a sense of job security due to frequent layoffs and policy changes.
    A very unfriendly and heavy handed HR department.
    Benefits are getting slimmer by the year, and they are slowly chipping away at vacation, PTO and holiday time off.
    Extremely controlling of every aspect of the work day, and a culture that seems to discourage innovation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think it would be beneficial to treat all employees (not just the ones that work with a pen and PC) as human capital rather than human resources. Getting the work done is important, but allow employees to flourish and develop them to their fullest potential. This goes beyond offering tuition reimbursement and online courses only offered to management and exempt staff. If you give people a chance to show you what they are capable of, you might just be surprised once in a while. And with the turbulent and increasingly dynamic business world, it might just be the only way to keep a more sustainable business model.

    OK

    R&D Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are opportunities for advancement if you are willing to work for it
    Wide breadth of products offers opportunities to gain experience in many areas

    ConsBenefits are only ok
    Tend to motivate with a stick rather than a carrot
    Seems timelines are more important than quality

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not very good

    Can't Say (Current Employee)
    Glens Falls, NY

    ProsThe work that you do.Clean place to work.

    ConsManagement has no clue.The DB&A thing they have going on only causes strife with the workers.The "Live Well program" amounts to nothing more then extortion.Job bids get posted but are already filled by the "in" people.Very little room to advance.Product lines moving out with very little to replace them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a clue and come down off your high horse.The workers are the backbone of the company NOT you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
