    I have been working at Kaydon full-time (More than 5 years)


    The people on the shop floor are great, but only if you can earn their respect.


    No support from upper management. The company is cheap and does not want to pay fair market value for good employees. They allow continue to allow incompetent employees to stay and to continue making mistakes. They do not believe in promoting within either.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest you start looking at your current employees for help on solving your issues. Bearing knowledge does not come easy and it has been proven time and time again that it is very difficult for outsiders with no prior bearing experience to be successful at Kaydon. I have seen a Material Science Engineer with a masters degree and a Aerospace Engineer with a masters degree both fail miserably and have zero success at Kaydon. One lasted a year and the other only 4 months before they left.
