    Pros

    Lots of work and plenty of overtime.

    Cons

    Unprofessional atmosphere. Lots of back stabbing, cursing and getting thrown under the bus.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on clearly defining system architecture and design. "Magically" a lot of problems will disappear.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Enjoyed pride in working for American manufacturer. We'll run company, quality driven.

    Cons

    Fair amount of driving in my position to access both urban and rural clients. Some work environments could be quite dirty. No fault of Haas, just a reality.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maintain American made status. Continue to provide high quality at competitive pricing points. Maintain positive relationships with regional distributorships.

    Pros

    Very generous pay at the time. Overtime is plentiful and even white collar positions got time and a half.

    Cons

    Oh my god. This is a culture where screaming, yelling and bullying is encouraged and is led by example from the very top. What the hell is wrong with these people? For a culture that works selected people very hard, it's discouraging to watch them being rewarded by passing them over in favor of toadies who ape the behavior. You are encouraged to join in the behavior or be a victim to it.

    Advice to Management

    There's something basically wrong with people who try to lead lead by intimidation. Until you change the behavior at the top and set an example, you'll always fail as consistently as you have before.

    Pros

    Location, benefits, systems are great. Other than that not too many positives.

    Cons

    No human resource management, no respect for employees, typical stressful atmosphere and toxic environment.

    Advice to Management

    $1 billion revenue and small job shop mindset will not mix. Change the corporate culture and respect employees.

    Pros

    Plenty of overtime. Lots of continuous improvement projects. Majority of workers are friendly. Clean and modern facility. Pride in the products and ability to actually use the product.

    Cons

    Easy to get stuck in one spot if your considered good at what your doing. Some supervisors and managers don't belong supervising or managing. Lack of standardization and procedure. Different managers have very different rules which can make it feel like you work for an entirely different company. Weak PTO policy.

    Advice to Management

    More PTO. More flexibility in shift schedules. Better career developing of employees. Need standardization and process control. More training.

    Pros

    One of the few companies I've worked that promotes on ability not seniority. Offers a monthly bonus program based on quality of machines we ship.

    Cons

    No sick days allowed, have to take vacation days if sick. Most managers are working managers and have little time to offer guidance or direction. Growing pains.


  8. Great job for a politician, not so great for an Engineer.

    Pros

    Great employees, good work. Owner and GM have provided great profit sharing and health benefits over the years.

    Cons

    Engineers must choose which managers they will side with. It's like a game of survivor with reviews promotions and project assignments based on alliances.

    Advice to Management

    Have HR do exit interviews to get to heart of recent turnover increase in Electrical Engineering department

    Pros

    Fast paced, never bored, and interesting

    Cons

    The Engineering department is a disaster, stay away. There are few good people in there. The rest (and most of management) is filled with childish politics.


  11. High volume, fast paced, multiple skilled, high stress, labor intensive positions.

    Pros

    Great benefits package, Good pay, Good compensation, Bonuses, Plenty of work, Challenging assignments, High company standards.

    Cons

    Tends to over-schedule production numbers to where parts required are not always available hence reflecting adversely on employees. Hours required to meet production schedules regularly negate any chance of a work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to employee dedication, extra workloads and duties assumed, innovations shared, assistance to fellow employees, volunteering to 'go the extra mile' on a regular basis, superior work quality for advancement to supervisor/management positions.
