    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits. Challenging work. Opportunities to "make a difference". Very strong core values of ethics and integrity, quality, innovation, and independence.

    Very demanding work pace. Tend to not replace attrition, and expect others to "pick up the slack". Tend to over-react to business cycles with excessive hiring in good times, then layoffs in down markets.

    Advice to Management

    Consider expanding work-life balance policies.

    I worked at Timken full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent people. Management tries very hard.

    Cons

    Devolving. Some plants are using machines so old (WWII) that they can no longer be repaired because there are no parts. Failure to keep assets upgraded and invest in infrastructure. Pay has stagnated, benefits, once excellent, have become mediocre in the last 4 years. No true investment in the future, simply the now. Very high stress, very demanding. Sink or swim culture. Too many lay offs. No longer viewed as the prime employer/partner once so highly regarded.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the Company's roots.
