Looking for a better job satisfaction and compensation.

Database Administrator (Current Employee)

ProsOpportunities for limited advancement if you are at entry level positions. Flexibility in works hours with opportunties for telecommunting. Benefits and perks are at a higher level than most companies. Work environment is open with a relative flat mangement structure.

ConsAfter you reach a position that is occupied by a company person, it will be time to look for another job...a lateral movement to start advancing again. Job reviews are based on a subjective numbering system with no objective thought from management or reachable goals that will lead to recognition or monetary acknowledgement.

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote growth from within. There are those that have received education while at this employment. Select from within for the career development program. Establish a mentoring program for the replacement of senior personel.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Engineer (Current Employee)
    Fort Smith, AR

    I have been working at Baldor Electric

    Pros: Great Benefits, good medical/dental, profit sharing, stable Cons: Management has little respect for their employees. Promotions are given to those that brown-nose. If they want you to leave, they put pressure… Advice to Senior Management: Remember the employees that helped you buy Reliance. These are the guys that stuck it out and made Baldor what it is today. … No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
