    Great place to work in project engineering capacities if you do not mind up to 30% travel.

    Pros

    Well known in the material handling industry. There are a lot of knowledgeable engineers in all locations. There are not a lot of office politics to deal with.

    Cons

    Travel can be extensive - especially when project issues arise. Not a lot of acknowledgment for a job well done - especially with all of the travel involved.

    Advice to Management

    Consider getting back to utilizing project Techs, who used to spend 100% of their time on a job site and were able to ensure that all installation activities were on track before engineers are sent to a site that is not ready.

    Pros

    You will work with some of the best engineers in the country. They work is very fulfilling. We worked with many emerging technologies. The facilities that HK Systems has for development are very nice overall. You will get to interact with many of the top companies in the US. Most of these companies are either fortune 100 companies. The benefits are pretty good. You get a lot of satisfaction when you take a project from greenfield to completion. H K systems has locations across the country so you do have some opportunity to move around. If you are really lucky, you might even land a project out of the country. Managements seems to "want" to take care of the employees overall.

    Cons

    Lot and lots of travel. The hours you have to put in can be overwhelming. I am concerned about the future of automation as many companies are leaving the area of automation and going back to more basic warehousing.

    Advice to Management

    Try to make travel a little easier for employees. Possibly compensate for time on the road better. Pay better when employees are required to be on call.
