    I worked at MetalTek full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and many good employees

    Cons

    Cannot trust many higher managers to be honest or to be fair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better higher level of integrity and decency from liars and back stabbers

    I have been working at MetalTek full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nuclear experience for your resume. Decent benefits and profit sharing. Good shift differential for off shift. Great outlook for future on paper.

    Cons

    Low pay due to low pay scales from corporate. Lack of compassion for people on off shift when considering family life. It is very hard to switch shifts. A lot of production leadership have little to no understanding of quality concerns which makes working for quality very difficult.

    I worked at MetalTek

    Pros

    Profit sharing is good. Time off policies are OK depending on manager. Leadership needs help.

    Cons

    Overall MetalTek is a good corporation, however individual divisional management is not brought in to the fold and could use training. Corporate is more concerned with profits and promoting themselves rather than division management and operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get divisional managers up to speed on being corporate managers. Director was an industry expert but not good at organizational performance.

    Pros

    they have good benifits i guess

    Cons

    no one can figure out how to purchase weld wire so we all get to sweep and gossip, but we get paid, i dont know how this company even stays in business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    find out why there isnt quality weld wire so we can do our jobs, and fire the people that dont purchase the weld wire we need.

    Pros

    Many people with solid technical expertise and many years of experience

    Cons

    Lots of talk about changing the culture of the company but no one has been able to define it and describe it in the same way if at all

    Company doesn't value it's people, only the work it produces; strict policies, high turnover, poor leadership and morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Define the culture to the employees, value personal growth and the people who work for you
