    Pros

    Good employee culture and they produce high quality products - many of them right here in Appleton.

    Cons

    They should look to gain a more diverse workforce to bring in ideas. Gain more women leaders.

    Pros

    Miller Electric was an awesome place to grow and learn. I learned a lot and was able to design many fixtures and floor layouts and actually have them built and placed. Everyone is super friendly and willing to help. Floor workers have a sense of pride in what they do which makes the job easier. I would recommend an internship here for any engineering discipline. I would really like to work here full-time in the future.

    Cons

    Don't expect to be hired right out of your internship. This is a very large company that just won't open a position for good employees.

    Pros

    Relaxed team environment. Good benefits. Don't try to get every last hour out of you. Can still have a life outside of work if you are salaried.

    Cons

    Pay is fair but not great. Limited advancement opportunities for engineers who want to stay technical. Not very defined guide lines for grades of engineers.

    Pros

    The company is very relaxed, and is a fun place to work. The values of the company are reflected in everything that they do. Instead of projects coming from the top down, production workers are encouraged to work on employee involvement projects through the month. The leadership is easy to work with and is open to new ideas.

    Cons

    The business unit concept is hard to grasp. Also, the pay is not competitive. The only main con for me is that there were no positions open for me upon graduation. I would have loved to work there permanently!

    Pros

    Many opportunities for job growth, great benefits, flexible hours, are very involved in community. The culture with in the business units is very upbeat and positive even when our backs are against the wall to get a project done.

    Cons

    The job opportunities although plentiful are hard to obtain by the requirements/hoops that are required to jump through. Politics within the organization or very excessive and prevent job tasks and projects from being done efficiently. Management does a good job of not firing underperforming individuals but moving them around to other business units to let some one else deal with them.

    Pros

    Offers great opportunities to expand your skills and develop new capabilities. Excellent compensation and benefits. Friendly, open culture.

    Cons

    Risk averse and short term minded (Quarter to Quarter). Budget stinginess can halt key initiatives and generate disappointing results. Need to be more "outside in" driven. Need better understanding markets. Need to be more international.

    Advice to Management

    Speed up the roll out of your new organizational structure to support your new corporate strategy. You are missing market opportunities because leaders are holding back until everything is in place.

    Pros

    Working at a well known company like Miller Electric was a great opportunity and the business unit I worked in was quite laid back. I got help whenever I needed it and the people I worked with treated me with respect.

    Cons

    There were not a whole lot of cons about working at Miller. Because the company is quite big, continued learning and training is necessary as an employee. In addition, as with any company, there are always some employees who are hard to get along with.
