    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Hanover, NH

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
