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

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

    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.

    I have been working at Miller Electric MFG full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.

    I worked at Miller Electric MFG full-time

    Pros

    The people were the company's greatest asset and the compensation and benefits were very good.

    Leadership has the opportunity to be more strategic and visionary. Career opportunities are limited for a majority of the management level employees.

    I worked at Miller Electric MFG full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    I worked at Miller Electric MFG full-time (Less than a year)

    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.
