Pros

Professional Growth, cross training, internal training. There are a lot of internal training programs that are very insightful and well contsructed.

Cons

Strategic Leadership. There seems to be a misalignment between the company mission and personal goals of both management and staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Strategic Alignment and long term planning. There is a strategy for the company but how to obtain that goal is up for debate. Long term planning must be compeleted in order to reach your goals.

    Pros

    Actuant offers good benefits, coworkers are very supportive and the products produced are good quality and have a high level of brand recognition in the industrial marketplace.

    Cons

    The senior management is so focused on the the bottom line that they forget about the people that are working to make things happen. Very little effort is put into training and promoting people. They are very quick to buy companies absorb and close down businesses and move them offshore. If you are a company that is purchased by Actuant watch out! Start looking for another job as soon as possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should take more notice of the people and the effort that is given to bring profit to the company. They need to take better care of their employees that have shown dedication and commitment to their jobs especially within companies that are small acquisition.

    Current Employee - Senior Management in Milwaukee, WI

    Pros

    Access to projects you never dreamed you'd work on, just because you were in the right meeting or expressed interest. Unfortunately, most projects go to people who, like you, have no experience and do a mediocre job. Open door policy results in easy access to any executive.

    Cons

    The only leaders with Fortune 500 experience are gone...too different? Seem to prefer middle of the road educational credentials, so my colleagues aren't too intellectually inspiring. COO and CEO need to LISTEN and accept what info walks in their doors. Corporate Coach is a former broker, serves as the messenger between executives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drop the Coach; LISTEN to feedback and input; hire people NOT like yourselves to inspire change, growth and challenge! Benefits are among the worst for this size company.
