What are perks and other benefits like at Columbus McKinnon?

Pros

Respective teams work well together to get the job done, better benefits than most markets, plenty of paid holidays, intensive training on product and systems.

Cons

Very limited information from management on changes happening within company that make it difficult to relay accurately and easily to customers, main focus is finding common issues internally without willing to take risks to remedy said issues.

Does Columbus McKinnon offer tuition reimbursement?

Pros

The pay is very competitive, which is what initially sucks you in. The people are great. The tuition reimbursement is really cool. Opportunities for stock.

Cons

One of the most unprofessional places I’ve worked. The executives create a toxic environment that cascades. Yelling, sending heated emails with a dozen people on copy, manipulation, favoritism, all common behaviors. My entire department turned over in a couple years and I’m pretty sure the person who drove them away didn’t even get a slap on the wrist. Tuns out they had driven off many before. No care for employees, work/life balance was nonexistent, forced to work on what was supposed to be paid holidays off, and executives forced us back in the office during the worst of Covid while skimping on sanitation. Technology is decades behind, causing a ton of tedious, manual work that gets audited, and you get chewed out if a mistake is found. Always a day late and a dollar short on staffing.

Advice to Management

Stop being so disingenuous. Get to know your people and what they’re working on. Communicate better. Get rid of the good ol’ boys culture.

The tuition reimbursement is really cool.
