    Good benefits plan

    Training - not sure what is available for professional development. The company could create and publish training opportunities, then allow employees to apply.

    Pros

    I am fortunate to work for two great bosses. Both different, so they balance each other out nicely. I am able to do a variety of different tasks and it never gets boring. Ulbrich is very family oriented. So, when it comes to your children, they always work around whatever comes up. I never feel like I can't attend something for my kids. They always make me feel like that comes first and we figure it out!

    Cons

    Very quiet in the Corporate office building. Sometimes it is hard to focus when it is too quiet.

    Pros

    Very good operators and Supervisors

    Cons

    Very poor management (director or operations) put safety behind production said " he was not stopping production for safety issues" luckily he is gone but so are some other very good people. Too many favorites and the ole boy system. Always walking on egg shells.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top management needs to pay attention to what is going on on the floor.

    I worked at Ulbrich Stainless Steels full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked at the Westminster, SC facility for a short time. Everyone there was incredibly welcoming. The training I received was adequate for me to excel quickly in my position. Furthermore, I felt the compensation I was given was fair. People there spoke about the Ulbrich family as if they felt they really cared about the company and their employees.

    Cons

    There was some shifting in organizational roles while I was there. It was my understanding that the supervisor previously over my department was a terror. I may have just been lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.

    Pros

    The people in the company are very good people and create a pleasant work environment. The Ulbrich's do take a genuine interest in their employees.

    Cons

    Sales department is very disorganized. Training at the sales desk level is non existent. One is left to figure it out. Then later told you are not meeting metrics set forth for the department. None of this discussed in "training". No feedback given within first 90 days (good or bad). Only at review was anything discussed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide feedback throughout the initial 90 day probationary period. If something is done wrong, address it right away. Do not wait for 90 day review to address problems. Your communication really sucks.

    Pros

    Very good bonus system. Very good people (Operator and Supervisors) They would do anything for you.

    Cons

    Senior and Corporate level management very good but out of touch with plant level leadership.Plant or factory level management showed favoritism and "The good old boy network" did not treat everyone fairly. No concern for safety. Very poor communications and no advancement opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the people on the floor. They are making the money for the company. Pay attention to what the Plant Manager/Director of Operations is doing.

    I have been working at Ulbrich Stainless Steels full-time

    Pros

    The Ulbrichs take a genuine interest in the people who work for them. They appreciate the work everyone puts into their jobs. Everyone is treated as part of a family and the owners are extremely generous with their sponsorship of activities and charities. Job stability/security is very high, as is the importance of work/life balance.

    Cons

    Unfortunately due to the nature/structure/size of the business, there are few opportunities for growth. It seems that employees plateau for long stretches of time, which can lead to complaceny.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time on the shop floor at the various locations. Become more directly involved in the ERP project. Encourage more of an open door policy.
