    Stable organization

    Administration (Former Employee) Ringwood, IL

    ProsCompany emphasizes continuous improvement from the top down. Hard working employees

    ConsPay is OK, but on the low side compared to other companies. Company also needs to understand its markets better. While products out perform competitor's products, the customer is unwilling to pay for that perform, thus causing Modine to lose out on business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry not to over-engineer products and try not re-invent the wheel each time a new product comes along and see if there is something already produced that could be changed to meet the customer requirements.

    Old-school Manufacturing Company

    Applications Engineer (Former Employee) Racine, WI

    ProsModine is definitely one of the industry leaders in their field of heat management. They are technically very well-positioned to maintain that status with their testing capabilities, engineering resources, etc.
    They seem to promote from within quite well, which allows them to keep top talent for the long term.
    Good opportunities for training and traveling to manufacturing plants for career advancement.

    ConsLike many companies that think of themselves as industry leaders, I think Modine has a bit of a blind spot in terms of thinking their way is the right way. This may be changing, but there are a lot of long-time employees who have not worked anywhere but Modine and that seemed to set the tone for the corporate mindset and overly conservative corporate culture.
