    Pros

    The local employees are great to work with.

    Cons

    Micromanagement from the CEO (Scott Buckholt) on down. Local business units unable to make basic decisions without corporate approval. This approach dramatically slowed down process improvements, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up and trust your business unit leaders.

    Great people on site. Good benefits. Good environment.

    Lead by example by getting down in the trenches. Be accountable and guide changes.

    I worked at CIRCOR International full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity to be positive change agent

    Cons

    Positives gained as a change agent we're ignored by leadership because I Was not a member of the "club". By the way, stay away from the "club". There is no leadership centered around team building, positive, merit based , reinforcement.

    Advice to Management

    Replace management.

    Pros

    Free Coffee Good Commute Some of the employees are very nice and great to work with Lots of parking Property Management takes good care of the building

    Cons

    - Senior management is unaware of how HR treats employees - New hires are considered on basis of age and quality of wardrobe - not on skills and experience - If you shop at Ann Taylor, by all means apply at Circor!! - Huge gap between senior management and the individuals that report to them - Calculated lack of communication and no encouragement of teamwork, no recognition for good work and no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with ALL of your employees in the executive office - not just the Senior VP of HR and Legal Counsel. You'd be surprised at what people have to say if you would make yourself available and really listen.

    Pros

    It's a learning experience for beginners for an entry level position this isn't a bad facility to work for. The employee's are nice and giving. The management isn't bad, everyone around here takes care of one another.

    Cons

    Being under contract with a possible hire after 9 months isn't very good when the company appears to be downsizing.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders here will inform you of what you need to know. New issues that arise you have to find on your own. But big projects are presented to you after they are mapped out by the project manager. I think all administrators should be included in a meeting with the project manager and discuss how things need to go. Put a project manager on a job that has little experience with computers and have them map out certain request that an IT person would know isn't going to work doesn't make our job any easier then it all ready is.
