    I worked at Baldor Electric

    Pros

    Salary was reasonable and there was job security. Has a laid back culture. Colleagues were nice to work with. Cost of living was low.

    Cons

    This is a sales driven company and sales people have more clout. Sales person who started yesterday can override a decision made by a senior employee.

    Pros

    Clean well organized plants (well we are getting there) and on the cutting edge of technology and business trends.
    Pay and benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    Too much middle Management.. there are plant managers, area managers, supervisors, coordinators ..etc.. in each area.. its a bit much.. It seems that management jobs are created to pass the buck to another rather than to let the employees take charge and do what needs to be done.

    Too many engineers!!!!! there are lots of degrees walking around in hte plants doing what seems to amount to a whole lot of nothing! It can be a bit aggravating at times when production is slow due to a hiring freeze on the floor and theres loads of engineers wandering around.

    also the creation of needless job titles.. such as "trainers" when there has been NO hiring in the last 2 years!! what are these people doing!! they dont help in the plants when we are short handed due to the attrition policy that is in effect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    cut some of the middle management and put the engineers and "trainers" to work..
    employees put product on the trucks not management and suits!!!
    We are well trained and we can train each other.. trainers are out of touch woth the day to day operation..
    Management is too bloated we have too many middlemen to get anythig done..
