Solid employer, but you won't get rich, no matter how well you perform

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Kearney, NE

I worked at Baldwin Filters

ProsStable company with generally solid performance and few layoffs. Profit sharing paid when targets met (most years).

ConsIf you get fired, you really deserved it, but you certainly won't get rich working there. Pay and benefits lag well behind national and even regional averages. There is little differentiation in pay between top performers and underperformers - if you stick around, you're looking at 3% or less increases at most every year, regardless of what you do. Talented people constantly leave for better opportunities - many people who stay long-term are satisfied with mediocre opportunity and compensation, don't want to leave the area, or are just simply incapable of getting a better job elsewhere. If you are ambitious and seeking advancement, chances are there is a drone middle manager blocking your way up who has been there for 10 years, and will be there another 10 years after you're gone.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay your best people at or close to what they could earn elsewhere. Stop "differentiating" your people by giving the mediocre 2% and the stars 3% raises.

I worked at Baldwin Filters


Pros: The pay was excellent after working there for a year, but sadly, even the slackers earn just as much as… Cons: There was a lot of drama and prejudice between coworkers and favoritism with the supervisors. A lot of harassing went on while I worked there.… Advice to Senior Management: You promised equal opportunity employment, yet you allow your employees to harass each other based on their differences. You should also hire workers, not people… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
