Pros

For the area the pay is ok, with limited skills needed to get in the door.

Cons

They used to have a really good tuition reimbursement program, now they have regulated it to the point where managers control who gets it and who doesn't. No room for growth or advancement. Good job, bad career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make decisions.... Timken as a whole is a good corporation to work for, but the Keene facility needs to be restructured as there is too much middle management doing busy work.

    Pros

    One of the largest employers in the area
    If you have the right degree, there can be multiple career options
    Decent benefits

    Cons

    Biased management, focus was always on reducing costs with no element of caring about people's lives. Economic downturn served as reason to cut pay, bonus, benefits, and 401k. Just 18 months later they posted biggest profit ever. Amazing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct an employee opinion survey, determine which managers treat employees well and which managers are causing turnover of good people.
