    I worked at Handy & Harman full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Learned a lot during my time there. Very friendly atmosphere. Pay was good, but benefits were great. Sr. executive management very experienced in the metals industry.

    Cons

    Not a great deal of room for advancement because the company was run in a very lean way. Systems could have been better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what you are doing.

    long hours
    Lots of overnight travel required

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the company is having a record setting year, reward the sales team. Additionally, commission should be paid sooner than three months after it's earned.

    I worked at Handy & Harman

    Pros

    the vast majority of employees are intelligent, friendly, helpful, kind, work hard and are extremely pleasant to work with making for a positive work environment.

    Cons

    the most senior executives are obnoxious, condescending, insulting and difficult to work with. They refuse to listen to the advice of their advisors and second guess the work, qualifications and abilities of just about everyone in the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real. You have hired people to perform the work required by their positions because of their knowledge, experience and ability to communicate. You should treat them with respect and value their opinions and efforts rather than degrade them and have their work checked by outside services - your actions are extremely counterproductive and inefficient.
