No opinion of CEO

Pros

Autonomy and a lot of good learning (you do all the job functions), not much supervision you make your own success (Interlake is a small system integrator)

Cons

Low pay, high health care premiums, travel is high to locations unknown and unpredictable, sales margins are unrealistic engineers must work within predefined profit goals for a project

Advice to Management

Review sales force quotes for profit margin projections, add more technical sales personnel, develope a advancement plan, nobody was promoted during my tenure

    Pros

    Room for growth
    fast paced/ever changing environment
    Successful company

    I am a current employee and believe Interlake Mecalux is a great company to begin your career. They offer great benefits including BCBS insurance, a 401K plan with employee matching, and over 3 weeks paid vacation time. There is tremendous room for growth in all areas as the company is growing each year. I have worked in multiple departments and moved up through the company in my time employed here. They promote from within if possible.

    Cons

    Open-office environment is not ideal for everyone

    Pros

    coworkers were great. I had that he pleasure of meeting some smart and interesting people from other departments. Good place start for a few months and then leave as other opportunities that come will be available. Hint: learn the ins and outs of the manufacturing and distribution world. use that knowledge to leave.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, terrible ceo, and cut throat management. open office was the worst as you get micromanaged constantly. Take away the computers and it is no different than a third world sweat shop. you get suspended for being a second late.

    Lazy supervisors who will throw you under the bus if they get a chance.

    Advice to Management

    treat your workers like human beings and not like second class citizens and everything will fall into place.
