I have been working at Mine Safety Appliances full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Employees are treated fairly and with respect, not a stressful workplace, good compensation, a good corporate culture, and a great position in the market that makes it a pleasure to be well regarded.

Cons

Because there is little turnover (many people have worked there over 30 years), things can get engrained and newcomers might have a hard time finding their way at first. Training is more "on the job" than formal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest more in core technologies besides product development.

    I have been working at Mine Safety Appliances

    Pros

    -Flexible when it comes to work-life balance issues
    -Supportive, team-oriented environment
    -Almost all employees are pleasant to work with
    -Interesting and important products
    -Received constructive feedback from manager
    -Upper-level management makes an effort to know their employees
    -Most employees seem to stick around for a long time (10+ years)

    Cons

    -There is very little turnover in the workforce, which is a good thing, but it also means that there are fewer job openings in upper positions. As an entry-level employee, my impression is that it would be a long time before something opens up that I could move into.
