    Pros

    Good people, and good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    There are too few employees to do the job as well as it could be done.

    Advice to Management

    Beware of burnout. Happy and energized employees = greater profits in the longrun.

    Pros

    Hire from within. They prefer to promote then to hire from the outside. (atleast at my site they do)

    Cons

    Management has poor communication and people will try and throw you under the bus to make themselves look good. Also HR is in another state. And if you have to call of for any reason they will take your paid time off to cover those days.

    very, very poor leadership from Exec lead team. Self serving at expense of employees. No business accuman so they continue to cut benefits and pay of employees to maintain margins.

    Pros

    I learned alot about manufacturing. Co workers are great to work with

    Cons

    No opportunity for growth. Demanding enviroment, bad pay, poor business decisions, no competent business model

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain talent that is hard working and knowledgable, don't make threats of the business selling, decreasing pay, ect. Learn to make smarter business decisions and don't expect the employees to suffer do to incompetent business risks.

    Pros

    you get to get your hands in all and anything to make your product do that right thing. You get to see the product development from top to down and will learn alot at the end of the day. Very good for Junior Engineers to learn and see how industrial equipments are built from ground up.

    Cons

    compensation is not as high compared to average. Benefits are satisfactory, but needs more improvement. Upper managers needs to interact more with low level details before making decisions

    Advice to Management

    overall great company to work and alot of potentials but it can only be released if upper managers can open more direct communications with people doing the work so that they have all the details and facts straight instead of relying on their supervisors.

    Pros

    Great work environment and great location, some of the employees have alot of experience probably too much

    Cons

    Low pay no job opportunities, I worked for three months as a intern and they had no intention of hiring any of the interns just low cost labor

    Advice to Management

    Hire Hire hire revitalize your work force, do not become a fossil, change your attitude about fresh blood

    Pros

    Good pay, opportunity to travel Great incentives / benefits for example the company will help pay for a gym membership, tuition assistance, discounts at tons of partners, but you have to ask to find out about these benefits and you also have to beg and plea to find out how to get the tuition assistance that is if you have time to go to school.

    Cons

    Lack of time off, on call 24/7 (even now that I don't work for the company anymore), lots of busy work, unnecessary travel, two service guys would travel to each other's back yard when they lived across country. Traveler's insurance will not cover incidents that occurred while on travel unless it was during working hours. (At lest this is what I was told when I tried to make a clam.) Management will not inform you when you make a mistake regarding pay when it's in the company's favor, but will be the first to let you know if you make a mistake in your favor.

    Advice to Management

    Start thinking about your employees instead of making money, when you charge an extra 10% for expenses it's great to make that extra money, but there is no need to send a service guy to Cali from across country just to send one from California back. If the service guy wants to go visit great but check with them first, cause most of the time they just got home from a 3 week trip and would like to spend some time at home.
