    I have been working at Elgin Sweeper Company full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    lots of overtime and excellent benefits

    Cons

    Management does what benefits them not their employees.
    Need a 4 year degree to move up in company.
    Upper management seems clueless on how to run a successful business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to take into consideration the outside life's of their employees. our life doesn't revolve around Elgin Sweeper.

    I have been working at Elgin Sweeper Company full-time

    Pros

    Close knit company. You have a chance to get to know everyone pretty well, across different departments. Great benefits, thanks to mother company Federal Signal. Your work makes a big impact on the company. You can see the value in what you do.

    Cons

    Departments often work against one another rather than together. It has gotten better over the last few years, but it still needs some work. There is little room to advance your career within the company. Many leave Elgin to work for a sister company or a different organization altogether.
