Don't trust HR

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Menomonee Falls, WI

ProsCo-workers are great. HR is not.

ConsHR Managers are very untrustworthy. Don't believe recruiters. Ask to speak with future co-workers regarding management, especially if you plan to work with. Trust is very important in supporting user engagement. No wonder engagement is low. Don't be fooled. Talk to current employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementReview exit interviews. There are some serious issues with HR Management, however they are the ones who do the exit interviews. Unethical behavior is supported and encouraged. Hard for upper management to see that there is an issue if the reviewers are the problem. Hire independent investigators to look at high talent turnover in the last 2 years. It is NOT because of the economy. How much talent must leave before this is addressed? They are ruining what could be a great organization but nobody is aware. Internal Audit or 3rd party investigation is recommended.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Corporate thinking at its worst

    Napa, CA

    I worked at Actuant full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Decent pay, reasonable bonus program, and good benefits Cons: Very narrow scope thinking - everything was focused on cost reduction and not quality or customer service. Also, the over-riding sense was that even though… Advice to Senior Management: When you buy a successful company, spend just as much time studying what made them successful as you do telling them how everything… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
