    Pros

    Great coworkers, decent pay, pretty good supervision that started as machine operators as well. Hardly any layoffs no matter how bad business gets.

    Cons

    Need to listen to little man's opinions more often, need to respect hourly employees, need to be more family oriented.

    Pros

    It is a job. It is day shift. Ummm. As far as business goes these guys are very successful. Making tons of money.

    Cons

    Too many hours, company values useless metrics more than employee, you are just a number.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees more.


  3. Hubbell is a great company to work for and they seem to care about their folks.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are good for the area. They rarely lay people off due to slow business conditions and rarely fire people for lack luster performance.

    Cons

    The HPS management team likes to talk about growth through acquisitions. If you are interviewing, ask how many acquisitions HPS closed annually over the past 5 years and how much those acquisitions moved the revenue needle? If you are interviewing, ask about how many internally developed new product releases they have successfully completed over the past few years that were not copy cat competitors products. If you are considering a job in Columbia, SC at their head quarters, ask how they resolve conflicts when your job goal conflicts with the goals of one of the BUs. "Dotted line" reporting structures are inevitably destined for employees with two managers who have different incentive structures.

    The HPS management likes to reply with "We are a numbers driven company" when denying a request for investment in a new product or new business initiative. Question, Isn't every for profit company a numbers driven company? If you don't take some risk and invest in new programs, how do you grow your business? The current management at HPS in Columbia likes to say, "We are a company that likes to hit singles." True. HPS is not for employees who seek a dynamic and highly innovative culture. HPS culturally is a good place for Steady Eddies who like conservative, limited change and a risk adverse work culture.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror and ask yourself, do the people who work for me truly respect and admire my leadership? What do the people who work for me really say about my management style and leadership capabilities when I am not around? Am I the type of manager that I would have wanted to work for earlier in my career?

    Pros

    Much potential for professional growth. Coworkers are very friendly and management is flexible and understanding of what happens outside of work.

    Cons

    Because of the size and structure of the company some changes are hard to implement or are implemented top down with what seems to be very little input from the bottom.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to show that you are listening to the workers.

    Pros

    HPS has been great from the get-go. They offer a lot of freedom to really choose your own path as to where you want to take your career. They are also a very stable company within an industry that is frankly not going away anytime soon. They tend to pay fairly and reward those that contribute positively to the organization through promotions.

    Cons

    The culture is a bit stale at times. The company is spread out across the US so it's tough to know what each plant does as it relates to the company as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up...growth opportunities are key to keeping employees happy. However, be aware of culture staleness and promote more communication internally.
