    I have been working at Franklin Electric full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good culture; solid IT leadership; good IT operational processes. Great coworkers, active efforts to have fun and build up the team. IT management is very transparent and they show genuine appreciation to their people. They mean it when they say, "...my door is always open."

    Cons

    While a leader in their industry, it's still something of a niche market they play in. Since the company includes 24x7/follow-the-sun manufacturing, aspects unique to that industry impact IT operations. However, those impacts aren't terribly different from other organizations that have a global presence.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue efforts of showing appreciation to staff. This goes a long way in career satisfaction and encourages everyone to go the extra mile.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Franklin Electric (Fort Wayne, IN) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Straight forward but thorough. Multiple interviews, but with individuals (not a group interview). Comfortable (as comfortable as an interview can be) and professional. No big surprises or silly interview questions.
