    Pros

    Associate owned with a family feel The company focuses a lot on the culture and trying to make this a better place to work Training and development is good - sponsored degree program Good benefits - profit share, stock, health, community service time Strong focus on wellness with onsite physician and nurse They are really trying hard to be a great place to work, if you are motivated and want to be part of a great organization that cares about their employees I would say Hypertherm is it. No layoffs

    Cons

    Senior leaders are sometimes not as connected to the associates as they should be. Some areas they lack resources so work life balance can be tough at times

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to the associates voices Keep salaries and benefits competitive

    Pros

    Continuous improvement culture. Employee ownership. Strategic leaders. Great products that help individuals and businesses build, grow and become more successful.

    Cons

    Strong interest in Associate development but in recent years insufficient funding for external training and conferences. Organization needs constant influx of new skills and ideas. Need to continue to create a greater "accountability culture," both internally and with partners.

    Pros

    Every associate is highly valued, as flat an organization of this size as you'll find, engaging business challenges to solve, extremely impressive founder and president

    Cons

    No layoff policy sounds fantastic but can create an insular culture over time

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the genuine focus on associate development!

    Silos in operation....

    I worked at Hypertherm

    Pros

    Decent salary. Decent management attitude toward work/life balance. Nice area.

    Cons

    Departments/sections are segregated in attitude and cooperation. Non-departmental managers try to dictate to associates in other departments. Work proceeds in silos, and attempts to get necessary information can be seen as intrusive. Quite a bit of "territorialness" in managers, as in most US corporations, unfortunately. Engineers haughty toward non-engineers doing technical work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop concentrating on community happiness, and work toward improving associate happiness. Make promotion opportunities more transparent, in terms of not having to be politically connected to someone, or in general a suck-up.

    Pros

    Great benefits, very good work/life balance, focus on associate development and well being, progress attitude toward career and work development, employee ownership provides a sense of responsiblity and teamwork.

    Cons

    Salary and total compensation package is low for market and cost of living, location can be a challenge for those who relocate, rapidly changing culture has caused some issues between leaders and individual contributors.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus upon total benefit package and address issues of fairness between the 'have' and 'have-nots'.

    Pros

    Hypertherm does care about their associates. They have an excellent training program and associate development is important. They do great work giving back to the community.

    Cons

    The salaries are not great, they try and make this up with profit share which is not guaranteed. Senior Leaders are sometimes too tactical and don't always listen .

    Advice to Management

    Would like to see some changes as a result of the feedback to the management team. In the past there has not been a lot of action.
