    They Try to do Good in the World

    Jan 4, 2021 - Electrical Reliability Engineer in Clinton, IA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Company is actively working towards improving their sustainability practices Company has been actively working to create a safety based culture at all practices and is fighting and discussing compliancy often Recent deployment of Center of Excellence groups to spread knowledge between plants and assist smaller locations who do not have the same resources as larger locations. Less and less positions in management are chosen through personal relationships and more for skill and expertise in the requirements for the job. Lots of opportunities to travel and move through regions. Outside training and learnings are encouraged and often paid by workplace.\ Health insurance is a reasonable cost and the benefits are great. 401K is matched up to 6% and an additional 1% is automatically contributed by company even if your compensation is 0%. Flexible Spend Account is available for additional health expenses and is matched by company up to certain amount. For salary, cost of living adjustment is given every year.

    Cons

    For most salary positions, long hours are expected with no overtime or additional compensation when called in on nights, weekends, holidays, or vacations. Compensation time for these instances are up to the managers discretion. "Do more with less" has been a constant mentality for the last 15 years in terms of personal and job responsibilities. Company changes location development submittals and procedures every few weeks at a minimum. No performance bonuses available for salary.
