    I worked at LaBarge full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very relaxed and professional staff! They treat you with RESPECT!

    Cons

    There is nothing bad to say about this company. If it weren't for my son having allergy induced asthma, I'd still be there! We had to move back to Colorado.

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

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Change 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 ManagementAdvice

    Seek greater commercial business contracts/customers. Increase automation.

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

    Pros

    I had a place to work for five years

    Cons

    They 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 ManagementAdvice

    Make a decision to support a market and commit to providing the services required by that market.
