    Pros

    Great Pay, work hard and it pays off. NO micromanagement , great culture. company was not set for major growth which justifys the sell off. great reputation in the industry. pays salary plus commission. best people i have ever worked with. the hr team does a great job of hiring, average employee is with company forever

    Cons

    SOLD off to MSC, Money Money Money, this company did not have that focus until the MSC purchase. we were all about the customer.

    I worked at Barnes Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The benefits and pay are good. As long as you're not in a management or leadership role the work/life balance is good.

    Cons

    Senior leadership are arrogant, ultra-conservative and very stuffy. They set high goals but don't take the time to implement them properly.
