Pros

Solid reputation in the industry, pay, benefits, team, really like the people that I work with, challenge, ownership. The good contributors in the company are probably too busy to find and post on places like this, so I thought I would take the time!

Cons

It can get busy, usually it does take more than 40 hours in the week to get it done, but there is understanding to leave for something personal. It is a very hard working company, very responsive to the customer and to each other. That is not a "con," but that is not an environment for everyone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Just continue to live to the values as much as possible every day.

    Pros

    Great people, great leadership, great customers, a growth company.

    Cons

    There is no such thing as a perfect company. One of the best things about Altec is that the associates are focused on continuous improvement. As a result, the company gets better every day to the benefit of Customers, Associates, and Suppliers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing by focusing on Customer Satisfaction, Teamwork, and Continuous Improvement.

    Cons

    before you read reviews please know that employers of this company are making there own reviews....that should one be a red flag....dicern with all youve got!!...management is a complete joke from the top to the bottom. most bosses are scared of the plant manager whether they want to admit it or not and because of that the truth never get told to him and there for he is looking through a bunch of smoke and mirrors and the end result is bad descisions. cant blame anyone but him though...watch out for people that will step on your neck to get ahead...they spend a load of money to figure out ways of increasing production when the problem is staring them right in the face...some line managers favors other employs than others for whatever reason...greed has overtaken and therefore they take on more work than the shop can actually handle which is going to bite them in the you know where later...they tell you they are always in the red and they may have to close the doors to the plant when later you hear from the owner himself of reports of a record breakin year...the union leaders are in cahoots and are bold face liars....they do not do there job at all and infact side with the company on issues they shouldnt ...parts are never right.......prints are sometimes wrong....quaility is a joke because its up or down by which way the wind is blowing that day...they refuse to buy tools when they are suppose to provide for them...grinding disc, nuts, bolts,weld tips etc....pretty much anything you need besides fabbed parts are scattered all over the shop so you have to go around the world just to do your job...one of the seven types of waste is movement and this gets overlooked daily....unsafe work enviroment bodies are constantly in walk ways parts are hanging off shears which could cause injury....the bathrooms are unsanitary....the toilets constantly having problems with flooding issues...disgusting toilet water all over the floor.......leaks in roof all over shop leaking on your welder at times cause your wire to rust and then causing prosity in your welds....they way they do time studies is a complete joke....there is more im sure....bottom line is....managment doesnt care about you the worker....most of the stress there is unescessary...because proper mangement could solve most of the issues....the bottom line could be achieved if there was a strict overhaul of management...hr also lied to me and told me that a posistion had been filled that i applied for....only to find it wasnt and there wasa 5 posistions over that needed filling....i have two years in hydraulic experience and they lied to me told me the job had been filled and the posting of the job is for entry level techs...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    advice? lol it would be like talkin to a wall because they dont care about the people that work for em....they are making all the money they want and more....they dont care about how the place is run....as long as there "return on investment" is doing there job....and yes we have been in meetings where we have been refered to as nothing but a return on investment....although in the eyes of the owner its true....its tacky and should never be told to the employee
