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

    Pros

    Leaders care about people. Not everyone is perfect, but they are genuinely working toward positive influence in the world. Thoughts and opinions are valued; people are treated as more than means to an end. Tremendous flexibility and understanding of the importance of family.

    Cons

    Vacation policy is not great.

    Pros

    CEO has clear vision for company and big emphasis on developing people. BW University and many other people development options.

    Cons

    CEO vision does not filter down at division level. Corporate vision is people development but no emphasis on business growth and innovation. Heavily focused on Aftermarket but not business growth. Benefits are well below industry average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    to middle management: follow the vision of the CEO without micro-managing each business unit
    become more competitive on benefits to retain the best people

    Pros

    CEO has a nice vision.

    Cons

    Execution of CEO's vision is very poor. Middle management is horrible. There is a huge gap between talk and reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it happen. Start with good and affordable health care benefits.

    Pros

    If you want to go after more responsibility, they will let you.
    Engineering experience has been good.
    Non-Engineering training offered

    Cons

    Promotion in engineering ranks almost non-existent.
    Salary increases happen infrequently (about every 2 years).
    Totally sales driven, thus no budget for R&D.

    Walk your talk.

    Pros

    The base pay is competitive, get to travel and always working on different things. Company works to recolonize our needs.

    Cons

    Lots of unpaid overtime, bonus system does not make up for. People get worn out and management dose not notice, you are forced to demand and fight for your time off when busy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing good in lots of ways, but you need to watch for your peoples needs and if you are going to work people so much maybe the pay should be more.

    Pros

    Good place to work for those who appreciate a steady job and an upper management that keeps a close eye on the numbers, creatively avoiding large layoffs in slow times. Company grows via cautious and wise purchases of other companies.

    Cons

    Company is after-market focused and sales led, rather than led by technical leaders and innovation. Organization prefers a "lean" approach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase technical investments and more heavily weigh technical folks input when making decisions. Improve benefits, education? Continue wise financial oversight.
