    Good place to work

    Purchasing Agent (Current Employee) Marinette, WI

    ProsSensible colleagues, decent pay, good bosses. Longevity in hiring.

    ConsWorkload, low head count. UL/FM listings provide multiple obstacles in getting work done quickly. Bureaucratic organization. Way too much email.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more to spread the labor, especially in the Purchasing, Tech Services, and those who test new product. Upgrade to the SAP system would be highly recommend.

    ProsFlexibility, tuition reimbursement, incentives, weekly pay

    Fair company to work for...

    Programmer II (Current Employee) North Indianapolis, IN

    ProsClearly defined metrics to attain bonuses once a month (0-400). Diverse cultures. Clean facilities and great location to roads and highways.

    ConsDepartment that reviews performance to meet metrics are not experienced with actual workflow so are bound by "scripts" to your disadvantage. Limited opportunities for advancement. Call volume can be stressful.

    Good atmosphere to work in, good benefits, great co workers but career growth is slow

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat co-workers, friendly atmosphere to work, learn and grow. High qualiy of work is expected and people are very professional. Managers are very respectful and provide a good work life balance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvesting in talent and providing career growth to people will motivate them to perform at their highest potential.

    Counsel

    Counsel (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat general counsel. Very open and collaborative legal team. Lots of upward advancement opportunity. Interesting global work in a very matrixed environment.

    The Worst Management Ever

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsA somehow steady paycheck during a bad economy.

    ConsA nepotistic corporate culture of liars and cheaters. Kozlowski left his friends managing the company after he was sent to jail.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit before you defraud the investors for a second time.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
