    Pros

    Very friendly environment with great experience for professional growth. The management really encouraged rotational experience to get a real feel for the machine tool industry.

    Cons

    Hours were not very flexible. Overtime is hard to get, especially now with economy struggling. Wages are low starting, but increase well over a short time.

    Advice to Management

    Give incentive to offer more overtime to employees. Also, the 20 minute lunch break is a bit short, most employees would like to see at least 30 minutes reimplemented.

    Pros

    Interesting place to work. Long history of success in the industry. Professional growth opportunities. Some leading edge innovation resulting in respect for the company.

    Cons

    The company has not always positioned itself well in the industry leading to layoffs when economic times get tough. Uncertainty in an unstable job market.

    Advice to Management

    Grow the company in ways that will minimize or withstand economic downturns. Consider some vertical integration as a means for success in the future.
