    Pros

    If you are a smooth talker you can work your self straight to the top with vary little knowledge of the product they selling. The benefits are ok if you don't get sick.

    Cons

    Run, Run, Run. They only care about profits, Not the workers. Sinking Ship. The company might be sold off because the profits are not reaching expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing can help them, only the future will expose them all.

    Pros

    The work is challenging and rewarding. Creating Machines for may varying customers adds variation and challenge to the job.

    Cons

    The company was purchased by a large public company who has no experience in the sector. Management is clueless and has no idea what they are managing. There is no communication, very few procedures, issues are dealt with by pointing fingers and blame rather than solving the problem and making sure measures are in place to prevent recurrence.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some effort to know what you don't know.......let people with experience guide your decisions. Stop trying to treat a duck like a chicken because you don't recognize the difference.

    Pros

    The company culture has been better than average with most employees enjoying their work and environment. Very concerned for employee safety. Compensation for salaried people is far better than for hourly people. PTO is better than average company.

    Cons

    Salary for most hourly employees is not up to par. Company gets a lot of bang for its buck. Upper management is out of touch with the inner goings on around the company. Many employees feel company is making a big mistake relocating its Ramsey headquarters to three different building across USA. Company is putting profits over people.

    Advice to Management

    Should have spent more time thinking about breaking up a successful company. Company may not have realized that the majority of employees are not interested in re-locating. Instead of forcing a 3% 401k contribution on us they should have given out raises this year.

    Pros

    Many talented employees to learn from. Great product with strong presence in the industry.

    Cons

    Upper management has NO decision making capabilities what so ever. Items become stagnant due to this weakness and ultimately results in disgruntled personnel and customers. Very very poor communication. Seems like the leaders are more sales oriented and spend much too much coddling personnel they are fearful of.

    Advice to Management

    Should be more proactive in decisions where personnel, management and projects are concerned. Never a sense of urgency to own location.

    Pros

    Employees who have been there for a long time are very knowledgeable in their specific roles. Decent place to learn many contacts and move to another company.

    Cons

    Very little room for growth, Upper Management doesn't communicate well what they want. you are hired for one position but are expected to perform the job of four because of dissatisfied employees leave consistently. People consistently speak behind others backs which creates an environment of distrust and non-cohesiveness.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management needs to communicate better, do not make assumptions based on telephone style information.

    Pros

    Interesting diversity of customers. At time there is interesting travel. S

    Cons

    Management is totally out of touch with operational reality. The goal is to make the next quarter's numbers even if it is hurting the company and it customers long term. The upper management has its head in the sand on all of its operational problems. There is absolutely zero reward for individual effort and initiative and zero penalty for making mistakes and having a 9 to 5 mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that in the US at least, the organization is VERY old and a succession plan is long overdue. Admit that there are operational problems and try to fix them.
