      I have been working at Altec Industries full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Altec is a values-based culture. Being privately held allows Altec to truly put customers first. There is also a strong emphasis on working together as a team. The ideal team member is hungry, humble and smart (Ideal Team Player) and enjoys hands-on work in a collaborative environment. Those who enjoy an entrepreneurial environment thrive and have lots of opportunities. The best thing about Altec is its associates!

      Cons

      Due to a strong demand in the market and rapid growth, there is a great deal of work.

      Former Employee - Engineer in Elizabethtown, KY
      Neutral Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Altec Industries full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Good place to start a career.

      Cons

      Culture is oppressive. Promotion and advancement is very secretive.

      Advice to Management

      Transparency! Career paths and ladders clearly exist, they shouldn't be secretive. Give your employees motivation to succeed by providing a clear path to advancement. Being given the run around and empty promises will cause otherwise committed employees to look elsewhere.
