    I have been working at Hypertherm

    Pros

    associate development and well being
    giving back to society through community service, staying green and efficient
    makes great products

    Cons

    Lots of reports, planning and meeting so leaving little time to actually "work"
    Trying to be efficient so lots of work loaded on every individual which can get stressful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Had great products and service support for the customers that really helps the company lead the market in plasma cutting.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    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.
