    Low pay raises that do not account for the cost of living increases. 1, 2, and 3% pay increase after 1 year and sometimes nothing.

    Hire some women supervisors

    -Great mentorship -Great culture -Lots of growth potential -Work life balance is good

    Cons

    One of the motto's is "mediocrity is not tolerated" but I've seen a lot of mediocrity and worse being tolerated. Many cross department issues that hinder collaboration are overlooked and tolerated.

    I worked at Franklin Electric full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people are friendly and helpful. Depending on whom you are working for, there is flexibility to handle things you need to do as they come up. Overall positive experience. Good quality products you can be proud of.

    Cons

    Some of the mid-level managers are disconnected from the people who end up doing the actual implementation of their desires/requirements. They still think too much like engineers and not enough like marketers. They have been slow to embrace new technology. No one wants to take ownership of their product line and be responsible for its representation to the public, even though the public is B2B. The new computerized skills assessment can do you in if you don't pay close attention.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the internet and current technologies. Pay attention to your marketing folks.
