Pros

You work with some of the best engineers in the world. Pay and benefits are excellent. The company has a long and proud history and the employees are proud to be associated with the company.

Cons

Senior management is a good old boys club. Limited opportunities for anyone who is not is the club. They will acknowledge excellance but will not promote.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are several dedicated employees that deserve a promotion (in pay grade only) that stay only because they love the company. Don't take advantage of them, promote them.

    Former Employee - Co-Op in Rockford, IL

    Pros

    Great experience for co-ops, most of the co-workers are extremely helpful and want the co-ops to succeed - they understand that co-ops come in with little to no knowledge and are more than willing to help

    Cons

    They have no real program in place to hire co-ops. They train them well but then when hiring time comes they string the co-ops along saying they want to hire them but they are not sure what positions are available for full time until other companies have snatched them up

    Good Work Life Balance
    Interesting Product Lines
    Some Really Great Mid Level Managers
    Some Excellent Hourly Workers

    Cons

    Senior Management only cares about thier own.
    Working level employees are stuck where they are.
    No chance for advancement unless you are in the Old Boy Network.
    All Work is on it's way to India or Poland.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybee it's time to get your heads out of each others butt, and find out what is really going on.
    You will be without any experienced peole on the work floor soon, average age is over 50.
