    I worked at G & W Electric Company (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great workplace environment, everyone there is friendly, the supervisor are not all over your back when it comes to performing on the job, after 3 months of being employed with G&W Electric you receive bonus money, they help you build up your 401 account

    Cons

    Production can be on a downside due to missing parts that's not available at that given time, which stops the Department from performing job performing capabilities. They sometimes play favoritism depending on if they like you or not, or if they're willing to keep you on the job. Sometimes it takes longer than 3 months to get you hired on the job, sometimes it will in fact require 6 months or more to be hired on.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay wages

    Pros

    Co workers, atmosphere, bonuses, and benifits First company that I have worked for, that I don't mind going in, show up happy and leave happy 99 percent of the time.

    Cons

    Communication, no real inventory method My cons are more like challenges presented, that would take more than a week to rectify

    Advice to Management

    As a super fast growing company, try to keep your composure

    I have been working at G & W Electric Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company is growing huge. The building is very new and has great ac and heat for the manufacturing floor which is very surprising and greatly appreciated. The 401k, health, dental, vision benefits are decent. In my opinion the best thing here is the people I work with. Coworkers are positive, smart, helpful, and caring. We are all here to better ourselves and finding mutual ground in that is easy. Another great benefit is the profit sharing most people are pretty happy with how great that is increasing!

    Cons

    In any working environment there's problems and here communication can be problematic. Communication with shift changes is either little or non existent occasionally. G and W has been implementing changes to improve upon this but more needs to be done Parking can also be very difficult on shift changes

    Advice to Management

    Try to understand and respond to problems in a more effective and more respectful manor.

    Pros

    Free food. There are a handful of nice people. Parking is great.

    Cons

    No communication they act like they are very nice but they aren't and don't go to human resources because they won't be helpful when they see you coming they look away.

    Advice to Management

    Have faith in your wor kers. Just because someone gets sick they turn there backs.
