    Pros

    Incredibly diverse role at this company. Excellent mix of commercial, analytic, financial, managerial, and marketing skills required to perform this job well. Challenging, interesting and ever changing. Work with talented individual across different functions. Excellent work-life balance

    Cons

    Dynamic flat structure is very good to get work done, but it leaves career growth up to you.

    I have been working at Intralox full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people as coworkers. Great location. Great philosophy. Could be great again as some areas have good upper management.

    Cons

    New upper management in manufacturing is terrible. They don't care about their employees nor listen to employees when making decisions. Treating everyone like a herd of cattle is not conducive to a good environment. Use the people you have in place already to help you. You have great resources at your call yet you don't seem to know how to use them or care to use them to help make decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Hiding/Manipulating numbers is not improvement! Listen to employees and use the analysis they provide. Appreciate your employees and consider how you would respond in their shoes when making decisions.

    I have been working at Intralox full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Excellent benefits including onsite health center, company gym with professional personal trainers, the cheapest insurance I've ever had, and an HR department that truly cares about the best interest of employees (at least in my limited interactions). Open-door management policy that allows any employee to comfortably bring anything to the table, good or bad, and earnest active coaching for any concerns or questions.

    Cons

    Limited advancement within certain departments...there are opportunities advance within the Laitram corporation, but some individual departments don't necessarily have the same mobility which stinks if you really like and get along with your co-workers. The base pay could be better due to the fluctuations in bonuses based on the way they are structured.

    Advice to Management

    Pay high performing employees what they're worth up front and utilize the bonuses to show appreciation. Work quicker to keep great employees before they're ready to move on.

    Pros

    The vast majority of employees are very good people. Met many willing to help out, teach, and learn as well.

    Cons

    Very low wages. Management was very inadequate, despite having good employees working under them. Observed the same in different departments.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. It all sounds really good on paper, but you should work on actually implementing those ideas.

    I worked at Intralox full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Steady company with growing sales and innovative products. Great company culture with many benefits and great coworkers. Very good work/life balance and they are accommodating to personal needs.

    Cons

    - Little room to advance. Read the reviews here and they all say the same thing about career growth. If you are hired you are expected to stay in the same position for a minimum of two years. You get little side projects here and there to try new things, but at the end of the day they want you to stay in the job you hold. - Base compensation is not that high. You get rewarded well in good years but in bad years where you work just as hard, if not harder, the payoff isn't there. - Poor communication between departments regarding new products, processes, and procedures. The outside sales force over commits to new products that can't necessarily be delivered. - Management fails to acknowledge their mistakes and puts the onus on the workforce to change the way they operate to fit the "new norm" even though it is a step backwards.

    Advice to Management

    -Oracle is a joke among employees and needs to be fixed. Your job is to provide the tools for employees to succeed and currently Oracle is a handicap. Step out of your countless meetings and see what is really happening on the front lines of your company. Hire the right people or bring in consultants to fix this. Intralox is not a mediocre company so why would you give a mediocre system for the employees to use? - People want the chance to grow their skill set and careers. If you don't give them the chance the move up within the company then they will leave to find a job that meets their needs. Great culture and steady pay only go so far, there are many other great companies to work for that provide better career profeession.
