    Pros

    I would have to say the pros are working with machinery, Learning different stations jobs. Taking instruction from maintenance to fix machines myself.

    Cons

    The policies and management infrastructure changed over the years and seemed more strict and not employee friendly.

  3. Poor management, more concerned about money in their pocket then employees.

    Pros

    Benefits, hours, position I had was great.

    Cons

    Management DID not know how to manage at a Corporate level. Did not go by Corporate policies and procedures. Never had any additional help while another associate was out of the office. Doing 3 people's jobs is unacceptable.

    Advice to Management

    Learn about your employees position and what they do, how they do it. Get more help so everyone is equal and not treated differently.

    Pros

    Great benefits: Health, tuition reimbursement, 401K matching, stock.

    Cons

    Managers do not work together and often send mixed messages to employees.

  6. The latter years were better due to consistent direction of the plant manager (Dennis. Brumbraugh)

    Pros

    Enersys strives on customer satisfaction and put out the best product and service.

    Cons

    Top heavy company, takes a long time to get things done

    Advice to Management

    The bottom line is the only role yet loss of revenue is systematic because of small work force and multiple jobs into one position at smaller branches. Company tries to cut overhead instead of getting more business.

  8. Enjoyed working at this company. They do care for their employees.

    Pros

    Great company, good benefits and managers who do care for the people that work for or with them.

    Cons

    Although the company takes great care protecting the health of its people you need to be aware you are working around lead.

  9. Age discrimination

    I have been working at EnerSys

    Pros

    A lot of ot due to all the driving you have to do !

    Cons

    The mgrs discriminate against your age even if you can handle the work load , I worked for 4 months straight , I missed only one day and was told to hang in their that when a spot opened up I would be hired ! As soon as a position did open up they hired a friend if an employee with no experience and no time on the job just because he was young . Another temp was hired that was young and I was layed off a week later. It that's not age discrimination I don't know what is !!!

  10. Overall, a strong/successful company.

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Friendly co-workers. Extremely sucessful company. Work/life balance is good. They are very community driven. There is an activities commitee which organizes events outside the work place (holiday party, United Way kickoff, etc.)

    Cons

    Pay is below average. Disconnect between departments. Vacation time could be better. I wish they were more open to telecommuting. The business is growing, but many of the departments are staying the same size.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your employees informed and included. Give them some incentive beyond compensation (more vacation time, telcommuting opportunities, etc.)

  11. Expendable employees. Don't work here if you have a young family

    Pros

    Health benefits, Pay, decent coworkers

    Cons

    Attendance policy is ludicrous. Points are given for staying home if you or your child is sick and your out of vacation. They treat new mothers horribly. If you decide to nurse your newborn they are totally unsupportable. If your pregnant they treat you like craps.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees have lives outside of this company. You want employees to work hard? Then treat them with common decency and respect.
