Good learning experience, but as gas prices rise hardly worth the commute.

I worked at Ferno-Washington

Pros

Young group of motivated engineers. People are nice.
Cool products, state of the art ambulance cots.
Good hardware and software. Latest 3D CAD, 3D printer.
Engineers did get a raise dispite company-wide no raise policy.
Everyone in the company receives a bonus based on company's performance. (over 5% my 2 years)

I left the company on May 13th to move back to my hometown for my wife's job, otherwise I would still be working here. Another review seems to be pretending to me and is much more negative than I am, probably a disgruntled current or former employee.

Cons

Company is in the middle of nowhere.
Engineering area needs renovated. (Supposed to be happening in the near future)
1 hour+ commute from Columbus, Cincy, or Dayton
45+ hours a week expected, but I never worked more than 45 and was not penalized.
Salary seemed competitive, but I received at 10k+ raise with better benefits upon leaving.

    I worked at Ferno-Washington

    Pros

    Medical company always in profits
    nice to work on lifesaving products

    Cons

    Company has been in profits but they have new policy NO raises
    Mandatory to work 50 hours per week and now they want everyone t come in on Saturdays
    No appreciation. Promise false bonuses for extra work but don't give ay
    Highly hypo critic management
    Salaries are okay but if there is no raise and the company is in the middle of no where..you don't even have money to pay for gas
    Especially if the Vice president demands engineers should come even on saturdays
    I worked here for 2 years and i am moving on to another company with 15k raise and much better benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people if you add projects don't beat engineers down to death
    Talk to your engineers, listen to them and respect them
    Donot keep saying if you dont do the work , you will be fired and i can hire so many people available to do your job

    I have been working at Ferno-Washington full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Over the 12 years that I have worked at Ferno in the Manufacturing Group I have been impressed with two main things that happen here every day. One is the huge commitment that employees have to the company and two is the overall work ethic that exists here. People at Ferno show up at work to work and they know, if they don't that they are putting their fellow employees at risk. Pay is fair, benefits good, and plant is clean.

    Cons

    My suggestion to Ferno would be to help its employees better prepare for retirement. Its something that some of us are not prepared for.
