    I worked at Ellwood Group Inc. full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay and great benefits

    Cons

    Upper management is not always honest about what is going on and have been known to make decisions based on feelings and not facts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a step back and listen, make an effort to be honest and tell employees that you just cant comment about a subject when asked rather than telling them a line of BS to avoid answering

    I have been working at Ellwood Group Inc. full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Hourly and salary wages are above average, this is a reflection of work environment and work schedules, salary work 60 to 70 hrs normally

    Cons

    Very few English speaking employees, quality is all ways a problem due to management and lack of a formal program in place, safety is all so not taken seriously.
    Managers are very politically motivated and go out of the way to make them self look good at other expense

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a quality program up and running with coverage and controls in place. Stop the politics and infighting and sarcasm that comes from the PA employees

    Cons

    Low pay. Dirty working envirorment. Management does not plan very well. They look talk to employees on the job about updating equipment to see if it will make the job better or easier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees when they have issues with new equipment. Raise salaries to make them competitive with other manufacturing jobs in the area.

    Pros

    Family owned company that treats their employees well. You can make a very good living with a limited education working at some of the Ellwood Group companies.

    Cons

    Dirty working environment. Sometimes the hours can be rough. Hourly wages are a bit low, but made up for with bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward the hourly workers higher wages.

    Has the potential to be hazardous. Working around very large unforgiving machinery. Must be careful and aware of your surroundings,
