I have been working at Kaydon full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Low stress. Low demands. Very few rules. Boss only micro-manages areas he thinks he is good at. Let’s me manage areas he doesn’t understand. Short drive to work.

Cons

Ancient technology. No opportunity for promotion. Infrequent and lousy raises and bonuses. Arrogant and condescending leadership. No contact with human resources.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees. Just because they earn a fraction of your salary does not mean they are stupid.

    Pros

    It will challenge you to the nth degree. It gives you the opportunity to do some good meaningful work and to learn a lot of stuff

    Cons

    Not a lot of support from upper management at times, overwhelmed the majority of the time, and you are expected to put in a lot of hours and work weekends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your support staff to do their jobs
