Pros

Some nice people working in the ranks
Nice Products
A lot of room for improvement
A small company without a lot of red tape and levels.

Cons

-If you're not upper management "staff" then you're not valued
-There are some people in the highest ranks that should never have gotten there and if you're not their buddy, good luck.
-Pay is much lower than average and don't expect it to get better.
-Bonuses are poor even during the best years, there is no reward for performance.
-Vacation time includes sick time and they are NOT flexible, if you have an emergency or it snows, or even if theres a power outage, kiss those days goodbye.
-Those that travel do it too much and you can never find them for answers.
-Policy that makes everyone suffer due to the actions of a few.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look inward. Spend less time oppressing everyone with these rediculous policies and more time making it a decent place to work. A picnic and Christmas party are a good start but spend a little money on your people with salary and bonuses.

    Pros

    is a company that offers lot of stability. Many employees have been in the company longer than 10 years. Some salaries are actually good, but that is not the case for all the positions, for the employees like outside sales, bonuses are good. Upper management has good salaries too. Product is good.

    Cons

    The company culture is very negative. There is favoritism for many employees. It all depends who your friends are. It doesn't really matter if you are a good or bad employee, the chances of you moving forward are close to zero. Management focuses on what you did wrong and not on what you have done right. Managements focuses on gossip rather than ability. Many good employees have left the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees to grow within the company by having a more positive view of the employees abilities. Change the reviews to be more productive and don't micro-manage all the gossip that is going around the company

    I worked at HYDAC Technology

    Pros

    Some good people work in the ranks
    Pay and benefits are fair
    Have some decent products.

    Cons

    Some truly incompetent people are in upper management.
    Appears that there is some history protecting certain inept employees.
    Seen many very hard working and knowledgeable people let go.
    Managers will not go to bat for the direct reports in most cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the majority of employees AND go listen to your customers. Your customers will give you an unbiased view of who is and who is not pulling their weight in the firm. They are your best guide to improving sales, morale, and effectiveness. The DO something about the current state of the nation.
