    Pros

    World's Leading manufacturer of Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps.
    You get the opportunity to work with one of the best Distribution networks. If you are willing to do extra work you get noticed.

    Cons

    Too much to do with too few resources. Turnover in sales is High. The human Resources department is overwhelmed to the point that it affects the morale of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the people that make your product.

  2. Almost Impossible to move up if you don't have a relative working there.

    Pros

    They do stuff like lunches and raffles for employees. Alot of overtime, if that's what your into. Plenty of opportunity for community service.

    Cons

    Lots of speeches and empty promises about opportunity for advancement. Close knit network of long time "good old boys" in management. If you don't have a relative in management, and most of the people who work there do, you cannot advance. Pay is minimal, very small if any annual increases, but tons of overtime.Frowned upon if you don't "volunteer" for weekend projects.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp policies to make advancement possible for everyone, not just relatives. Promote people with knowledge and hard work, not because of family ties.

    Pros

    Secure a long term job.

    Cons

    Company wide reviews yearly resulting in a 2% to 3% raise.

    Advice to Management

    Have a yearly cost of living adjustment- otherwise your "raise" is meaningless.

    Pros

    Great people, great company! It was a pleasure to work with most people at Wilden.

    Cons

    Give credit where credit is due? I don't think so. Management had a chance to fix things, and yet they let someone move up the ranks that had no business being in that position, let alone out of jail.
    This person ran off a LOT of good, talented people!

    Advice to Management

    From what I understand, the advice has already been taken.
