Positive

Procurement (Former Employee)
Tulsa, OK

I worked at LaBarge full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe people here are great, and the company makes an effort to train/promote from within. Company goal is to maintain manufacturing in the US. They are to be commended for that activity.

ConsChange mgmnt can be difficult, although that can be expected at most companies. Salary can be a little low nationally, but is competitive for the Midwest.

Advice to Senior ManagementSeek greater commercial business contracts/customers. Increase automation.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

This is a company with high expectations but severe dilusions of adequacy.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at LaBarge full-time for more than 5 years

ProsI had a place to work for five years

ConsThey have plans to expand into markets that require suppliers with stable infrastructure to support their business. However, this company has no intentions to change anything to support the new customer requirements. Everything is fine just the way it is. Anyone with insight or experience in the proposed requirements is ostracized.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake a decision to support a market and commit to providing the services required by that market.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
