    Pros

    Best job started working in 2006 left in 2009 started out as a temporary employee got hired on within 3 months received pay raises consistently and frequently growth opportunities to learn new skills was unlimited team of coworkers and management were excellent moved up the street from the building commute was within walking distance stayed a lot of hours past my shift just because I enjoyed what I did so much would've never quit if I didn't want to live in a warmer climate

    Cons

    There aren't more locations to transfer too if you want to relocate out of state one manager was challenging to comprehend due to his broken english

    Advice to Management

    when I worked there I didn't have any issues with management but now I have learned through current employees that many changes have been made that are harsh to lower level employees that are outside of the executive level employees

    Pros

    There is a paycheck every two weeks, that is about the only benefit of working here. They talk about training but it doesn't exist. If I were a new guy starting out I would not have taken this job. Supervisors are mostly great but I wouldn't want to be one.

    Cons

    Morale is at the lowest that I have seen it at, everyone you talk to wants to get out. The place is like a revolving door, those guys with ability soon leave and people seem to get thrown out all the time. Not sure of the outlook of this place

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to see management from NJ, I think upper management here hides a lot and tries to sweep things under the rug

    Pros

    Good pay and nothing more

    Cons

    Being a woman welder was not easy in this company. I was harassed by the other workers daily I had been harassed so bad employees wrote me a note asking me to show them my breasts which I did not find funny! I handed this note to my superiors thinking some action would be taken for the behavior in the shop and I found myself on unemployment one month later! Very bad company but influenced me to go back to college for human resources due to the lack of compassion in this company!

    Advice to Management

    Be more diverse in your employees and better training for inappropriate behavior!

    Pros

    any port in the storm?

    Cons

    Structured very badly, the company was a startup in the late 80s that is having significant heartache transitioning and developing policies to become a larger company. Most of the management team were with the owner in the first few years of starting the business, but are fairly incompetent at real management skills.

    Pros

    Good pay, reasonable benefits, safety is a major concern. Some promotion and improvement of wages are available. Break room are very good

    Cons

    Always being concerned about being watched by the cameras. Management never asking employees their opinion.
    Some coworkers do not cooperate with others. Managers have a favorites and only give those employees respect and promotions

    Advice to Management

    The employees are more intelligent than you give them credit for. Ask their opinions for something the management wants to do

    Pros

    Holtec International is a great learning experience and surrounds its employees with educated and professional individuals who all work together to achieve a common goal.

    Cons

    The one con of working at Holtec International is that there is an occasional disconnect between engineers working in New Jersey and the manufacturing engineers located in Pittsburgh, Ohio and Florida.
