Good overall, but tough for Electricals

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Vermeer full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat area, competitive salary, lots of interesting work. We get to work on a wide variety of machines and have reasonably free reign for invention and experimentation. We frequently work directly with the machines during test and debug and get a lot of outdoor work.

ConsVermeer's environment is very geared towards mechanical engineering and manufacturing.
Being a electrical engineer is challenging from a social aspect. I would describe the general Vermeer attitude towards electrical engineers as disrespectful at best, and perhaps even hostile. There seems to be a glass ceiling for us, almost all management comes from a mechanical/business background, even in the electrical/computer groups.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire up, don't hire managers that have never done the job.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
