    I have been working at Applied Industrial Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good company with good leadership. Company strategy and business objectives are clear. In most cases you are free to do your job with little day to day monitoring. If you do your job and work you will be successful. It's a flatter organization so career movement is mostly lateral no vertical.

    Cons

    It's a large organization so communication is an ongoing area for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Develop your people, all of them and continue to invest in them no matter what their age or position. This company is loaded with talent and expertise.

    Pros

    Excellent and supportive team, great work life balance,
    Interesting and challenging projects, great infrastructure and facility, very helpful upper management

    Unfortunately there is no work from home policy which makes it little difficult in terms of being flexible.
    Also the number of vacation and sick leaves can be improved

    Pros

    The management at my branch is top-notch. Though I am not a fan of the decisions made corporately, my manager and co-workers make working at Applied worthwhile. Free shirts and Yeti cups from Vendors were a plus! Solid benefits, annual performance reviews can lead to raises.

    Cons

    You have to work with SAP--which is a nightmare. Corporate is constantly coming up with new processes that tend to complicate day-to-day operations.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify processes. It feels like no one up top consults the frontline employees. Also, please make Applied.com user friendly.

    Pros

    Company is investing in me and others. I like that the company is giving me the chance to train and advance. Surprised more people are not taking advantage of the training. My co-workers are willing to share their knowledge and help me when I have questions.

    Cons

    Have to know where to look to get some of the tools. You can ask but it seems like not everyone has caught on to what company is offering.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more to us. Help people like me get up to speed faster and keep rewarding performance.
