I have been working at Contech Engineered Solutions full-time

Pros

Working with Contech has been great in their management team. The company is looking to expand and is very open to suggestions from all levels of the company. Also, being a part of American Manufacturing is important as well

Cons

Pay is a little low for like work, sometimes feels that there are too many initiatives going on to proper focus on, nurture, and cultivate single ideas/projects

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow new initiatives to come out at the plant slowly over time instead of adding multiple initiatives rapidly. Give the plant time to adjust and refine new SOP's before pushing in another.

    I worked at Contech Engineered Solutions full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great employees (if there are any left)

    Cons

    Yet another round of job cuts last month, how many more times will senior management do this before they realize they have decimated what once was a great company? Morale is awful, everyone is looking over their shoulders wondering what will happen next and nobody has trust in the executive team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put your egos aside and leave so that some real leaders can come in and salvage what is left of this company. Your employees are smart enough to see right through what you are doing, stop spending money frivolously when you haven't made any contribution to the company.

    I worked at Contech Engineered Solutions full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Product Line
    Excellent Technical Support Staff
    Solid people on the fron line

    Cons

    Too many layoffs over past 5 years
    Go on furlough, get an email....is that wrong or what?
    Big Brother...everything is salespeople's fault
    Incompetent middle managers including some Director positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You don't win a war by depleting sales staff, i.e. those in battle on the front line taking the bullets. This company is WAY TOO Fat in the middle and continues to bulge at the seam. The overhead keeps pricing levels at uncompetitive levels. Signature PVC product is too high to sell, company insists on 15% profit margins in an economy that doesn't allow it but due to being fat in the middle it's 15% or nothing. As former Sales Engineer, it's been nothing for way too long. Too many managers sitting at their desk dictating selling strategies in territories they aren't familiar with (because they spend their day behind a desk) to contractors they never met (because they spend their day behind a desk) thus negating the human element which is so vital in relationship building as a sales organization

    No opinion of CEO
