    I worked at Rexnord

    Pros

    Rexnord does have a decent in-house training program.

    Cons

    Very poor scheduling by production planners causing way too many setups, leading to poor uptime, and in turn making the environment extremely stressful to the point where it is unhealthy. There are a lot of lazy people at Rexnord, especially those in lead positions, who pawn their work off on regular techs, but still get the credit for doing the work. Almost every shift for hammered with many setups, often multiple setups on a single press, and finding help from coworkers in different cells was pretty much nonexistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a very close look at which techs are actually carrying the majority of the workload (I mean PHYSICALLY look, not from a nightly log handed in by each tech) and reward them. Way too much credit is given to the lead techs/journeymen for getting things done, for all they do is avoid any physical work and sit in front of a computer the entire shift.

    I have been working at Rexnord part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The management is very qualified, approachable, and willing to make everyday processes run smoothly. There are very resourceful people with experience that are willing to help out inexperienced workers.

    Cons

    Communication between departments can be repetitive at times. Training was less than expected. I had to figure out the best way to get responses from people in different areas of the company on my own.

    I have been working at Rexnord full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay (golden handcuffs). Premium product value. If you do your job well, there is job security. This is a company that makes fact based decisions.

    Cons

    If you have aspirations of career growth, this is not the place. there is limited opportunities of gaining skills in other areas in order to do different jobs than what you were hired in to do. You have work at your career growth as you do at your daytime job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not everyone wants to move up or around the organizations. Identify those who do and groom them to move around proactively instead of that talent leaving making another organizations better. Develop a formal career path or at least encourage employees to work with a HR representative and their supervisor chart a career path.

    Pros

    Very good work environment for engineers. Most everybody is easy to get along with. Nobody will demand an overwhelming amount of work.

    Cons

    Corporate demands overrule logical thinking. Large disconnect between office and union personnel. Starting engineer salary not very high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with the union to create a better relationship. Management has no idea what actually happens on the shop floor, yet makes decisions to dictate working conditions

    Pros

    Decent benefits if that is what you are looking for, but don't expect anything more.

    Cons

    Terrible work environment due to constant flux and shortage of employees. Folks leaving the place in droves. Management has no darn clue about what it is doing. Too many senseless rules made up by HR. Cannot make or deliver the product on time and quality sucks. Constant turmoil at work place. The reputation has become so toxic that we cannot hire good people on the floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You cannot become a great company if you have sad and unhappy employees. Total associate engagment...my foot!
