An extremely stable company the offers excellent retirement benifits

Associate Maintenance Engineer (Current Employee)
Beloit, WI

ProsThe long term benefits are the best that I have encountered. They offer, for salaried employees, a base pay, year end bonus, profit sharing (rolled over into your 401k), 401k, stock options, pension plan. They also have pretty good medical, vision, dental, .... benefits as well. Multiple opportunities to give back to the community and there are multiple occurrences for employee engagement.

ConsVery long hours when working in the plant. As an engineer, I spent 11-12 hours a day at work which makes my personal life non-existent M-F. There is a general lack of feedback from your manager as to if you are progressing properly especially if you come straight out of school or if this is a career change.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time with those individuals that are starting fresh with the company. If the individual is coming in as entry-level, they need feedback

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
