    I have been working at Colfax full-time

    Pros

    Health benefits. 401K average.

    Cons

    Creating change and thus instability has become part of core values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Values cannot be handed down on a printed sheet. The leadership needs to put in some extra effort.
    Take some time to introspect and understand the difference between leadership and management.

    I have been working at Colfax full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not many, your very average job. Local people (besides managers) i work with are the best!

    Cons

    I’ve heard lots of talk from executives and managers for the last couple years.
    BIG talk of advancement opportunities & how employees are the biggest asset but I’ve been treated much better by 98% of my previous employers. I’ve been promoted recognized and rewarded by 98% of every smaller company I’ve worked for for more than 25+ years, not here. They really are just a huge company purely out for profit. Advancement is nearly impossible because you only get promoted if you talk the talk and can impress the BIG visitor when introduced. Many people are scared for their jobs so if you do a good job your supervisor either takes credit or is to afraid to tell the big boss someone under him did something great. Have proven they don’t care for people by lying and cheating whenever they can get away with it. Can’t take a day off without pay to spend time with my family even when work is slow because corporate still has to pay my benefits for that day!!! Even when I worked 30 hours overtime the week before to “Help out”..
    Profits are up because we are paying 20% more for medical than last year, do the math, we each pay 100-300 more a month, instant profits…. Taking the next job I find.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management- Stop lying.
    Maybe allow employees rate their managers/company anonymously.
    But then again, they dont listen so why?
