I worked at Wilden Pump & Engineering

Pros

Great people, great company! It was a pleasure to work with most people at Wilden.

Cons

Give credit where credit is due? I don't think so. Management had a chance to fix things, and yet they let someone move up the ranks that had no business being in that position, let alone out of jail.
This person ran off a LOT of good, talented people!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Wilden Pump & Engineering full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    World's Leading manufacturer of Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps.
    You get the opportunity to work with one of the best Distribution networks. If you are willing to do extra work you get noticed.

    Cons

    Too much to do with too few resources. Turnover in sales is High. The human Resources department is overwhelmed to the point that it affects the morale of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the people that make your product.

    Almost Impossible to move up if you don't have a relative working there.

    I worked at Wilden Pump & Engineering full-time

    Pros

    They do stuff like lunches and raffles for employees. Alot of overtime, if that's what your into. Plenty of opportunity for community service.

    Cons

    Lots of speeches and empty promises about opportunity for advancement. Close knit network of long time "good old boys" in management. If you don't have a relative in management, and most of the people who work there do, you cannot advance. Pay is minimal, very small if any annual increases, but tons of overtime.Frowned upon if you don't "volunteer" for weekend projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp policies to make advancement possible for everyone, not just relatives. Promote people with knowledge and hard work, not because of family ties.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
