    I worked at Paul Mueller part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is a great environment to work in. Everyone is approachable; there is no hostility. The new CEO has turned this company completely around. The former CEO was leading the company in the wrong direction and was subsequently fired because of it. The new CEO is very positive and calm. The new management has made this company a great and fun place to work. Don't let past reviews steer you away, the company is now prospering.

    Cons

    There is competition between coworkers which sometimes when you are working with them can be annoying. Some of the staff is still there from the previous administration.

    I worked at Paul Mueller full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large Manufacturing plant and good place to start to gain experiences. A lot of older employees has worked there 15+ years. It used to be the place to work and a legend in the tank industries. The grandfather of tank industries.

    Cons

    To many leaders and to many directions. Management do not recognize good employees. Did not have a good transition between the old management and new management. Probably have a good potential in the future. Due to the new management they like to reinvent the wheels instead of upgrading and improving the system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more intention to good employees and give financial recognition before the employee find another place to work. Talk to people that has been working there 20+ years and ask for there advise to prevent reinventing the wheel.

    Pros

    Company has made a 180 flip in both attitude and profits since the old guard was moved out and the new was brought in.

    Cons

    The yearly compensation raises are fixed regardless of performance, that somehow just doesn't seem right.

    Pros

    I personally have a lot of freedom.

    Cons

    No accountability at any level of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop fighting each other and padding your wallets and we can all make some money. To the new CEO, don't be blinded by self-fulfilling liars in sport coats!

    I worked at Paul Mueller

    Pros

    Company has had a long and great tradition for quality. It has been a leading employer in the area employing multiple generations and was well respected by customers and vendors. Has had a history of positive recognition and employee pride.

    Cons

    Much of the positive recognition has been lost in recent years, impacted by the economy, management decisions, and manufacturing performance (quality and delivery). Difficulties have surfaced related to quality and vendors relations have been strained. Large layoffs and and internal struggles have had a negative impact on employee morale and any sense of security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to promoting the craftsmanship, pride and relationships that made the company a leader. Leverage the entire body of knowledge available to improve performance.
