    Pros

    I guess the only pro I have is that there is a Friday at the end if the work week.

    Cons

    Finding good staff and being able to keep then before management terminates them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being hypocritical and look at yourself for a change.

    I have been working at Insulectro full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The owners, the people, the customers and the suppliers make for a great work environment. Insulectro has invested in the business through people, facilities and new products.

    Cons

    Work life balance is a challenge. There is always a lot of work to do and the resources are kept to a minimum. People are willing to pitch in and help whenever asked and come together as a team.

    Pros

    A few caring, intelligent employees. Free coffee. Good work-life balance for some departments.

    Cons

    Company's investment in new computer system has ironically bogged down the entire process for order entry, material management, and warehouse processing. (Purchased a shell.) Sales slowing, and Operational costs rising, so there is a lot of finger pointing, while trying to sort things out. Consequently, lots of stress, and definitely not a 9 to 5. New hires are not adequately trained, and this has a stressful impact on all departments. Morale at its lowest at this time -- with recent lay-offs, and still trying to figure out how to maintain and cope.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to get comments and opinions from all of your employees. Please put an end to a lot of the time wasting politics within the lower ranks.

    Pros

    Learn about a supply-chain and distribution business hands-on.

    Cons

    Management is extremely old-fashioned and will use intimidation tactics and force to get what they want. Also, most people in the company are either backstabbing or spineless. The CEO is the spoiled son of Insulectro's co-founder, and as such, acts with privilege but little tact. Insulectro is a very sink or swim environment. New graduates or even mid-20 year olds would probably do better at a startup. The salary, PTO, and benefits here are also extremely low-quality. Manufacturing is also a shrinking industry which has management in a constant survival state; they will cut costs wherever they can (including your job if need be).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs a real ceo.

    I have been working at Insulectro

    Pros

    The company has a friendly atmosphere, and there is not much stress. There is free Starbucks coffee served. The owners are friendly. There is not much supervising, as long as you do your work and do it well you are on your own. The location of the company is close to most major cities around and the commute is not bad.

    Cons

    The company is private and very tight with their money. After work functions are poorly funded and would advise against attending. The company is not that big with about 150 employees so there isn't much opportunity for growth or career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make annual reveiw annual.
