    Pros

    Great opportunity to move forward in the company, granted you put in your work, which is win-win for both sides. Anything or anyone I rated less than 5 stars is due to not knowing how great or bad it may be.

    Cons

    None yet, but I am sure the cons are just the same as any other job. From what I have seen the pros outweigh the cons as long as you do your part.

    Advice to Management

    Keep taking care of those who are under you, and if you don't already, you should absolutely start.

    Pros

    Work hard, play hard mentality. Everyone is very approachable, kind, knowledgeable, and talented. This company is a great competitor, because of it's products, service, and the people behind it all. Great benefits and company values. Continuously recognized nationally for their wellness fairs and health initiatives.
    The company does a lot of outside volunteer work, including clothes and hygiene products to families in poverty, and service men and women in the military. Every Earth Month, across all locations nationwide, Contech employees go out into the community and plant flowers and trees, pick up trash around highways and waterways.

    Cons

    With the downturn in the economy, a large number of people were laid off. Additionally, the company went through a restructuring which is beneficial in the long run, but left people very upset and angry during the layoffs in the summer of 2013.

    Advice to Management

    Great work life balance. Management is very approachable and understanding towards family life, as they value theirs as well. Office culture is like great friends. The Management team is full of talented, hard working individuals. Would love to see more women and diversity in the company as a whole. However, the engineering field (in general) is still predominately male.

    Pros

    Working with Contech has been great in their management team. The company is looking to expand and is very open to suggestions from all levels of the company. Also, being a part of American Manufacturing is important as well

    Cons

    Pay is a little low for like work, sometimes feels that there are too many initiatives going on to proper focus on, nurture, and cultivate single ideas/projects

    Advice to Management

    Allow new initiatives to come out at the plant slowly over time instead of adding multiple initiatives rapidly. Give the plant time to adjust and refine new SOP's before pushing in another.

    Great company to work for

    I worked at Contech Engineered Solutions

    Pros

    Pay was good and worked in a remote location and there was no micromanagement.

    Cons

    You have a large workload and will work more than your 40 hours a week

    Advice to Management

    Don't just look at numbers when trying to distribute work load. There is more than numbers to tell how busy a person can be.

    Pros

    I have been incredibly lucky to work here. I have been given the most awesome development opportunities! Contech really does care and invest in my professional development and I can't say how much I appreciate this. My schedule is also flexible when there are personal items I need to take care of. My department and supervisor are fantastic - I really appreciate my relationship both personally and professionally with all of them. All in all I love working for this company and look forward to seeing what the future holds here.

    Cons

    I don't have any complaints about Contech.

    Advice to Management

    I think the highest level of Management is pretty disconnected with the employees. It would go far if they would get more involved or at least aware of what happens lower in the organization.
