I worked at ERICO

Pros

Stable company. Even in the bad economy Erico has continued to make money. Erico has been in business a long time. Casual dress code. Time off policy is OK. Medical coverage is OK.

Cons

Management does not care about it's employees. There is no job security; all employees are thought of as expendable. In the past few years they have let go people with over 20+ years to trim the top salaries. They have "pushed" several long-time employees into retiring. They no longer offer a pension. Raises are far and few and then only 2-3%. Sick time policy is the worst I've ever seen.

    I have been working at ERICO full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities to develop for you career as you are encouraged to go out and receive additional training on the company's dime. The people are fantastic and are willing to help in any way they can. There is a lot of work to do so there aren't many days spent at your desk twiddling your thumbs.

    Cons

    When first starting, there was a lot of grunt work to be done. While this is meant to help you learn the plant and procedures, it goes on longer than necessary. As per usual with any job, there is bureaucracy when it comes to spending money for projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for more involvement early on and don't rely on only grunt work to learn the processes in the plant.

    I worked at ERICO full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Love the people. It was a great group to work with. People tend to stay longer than most places (avg. 10+ years). Upper management cared about their employees first before company's profit. Best learning experience. If you wanted to learn or get involved with a specific technology or a different aspect of the business, all you had to do was ask.

    Cons

    Average base pay, bonuses decreasing yearly (used to be exceptional!), mediocre benefits (used to be great!), NO work-life balance although they claim to promote family, they expect you to be ON 24/7. Spent many holidays working at the cost of my family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach and pay attention to your middle management. They are the ones pushing their employees to make themselves look good to upper management.
