      I have been working at Ariel Corporation full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Great benefits, outstanding 401k, industry leader

      Cons

      Family business. If you aren't connected to the family, you are on the outside looking in. Favoritism runs rampant. HR is a run-away, out of control train. Little opportunity to advance.

      Advice to Management

      Get new HR leadership. See people for their talent and performance NOT for who they know. Don't be afraid to see the best in those you don't know or to trust them until they prove otherwise. The "friends and family" plan is very unfair to those that work hard and are very loyal but aren't connected.

      I have been working at Ariel Corporation full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Medical/ Dental is the best for a machine shop in this area. Profit sharing when times are good. Career advancement when times are bad. Company sponsored events like cedar point trip.

      Cons

      Strong favoritism with certain employees in the shop. Not a whole lot of training, they kind of expect you to know what your doing. PTO, paid vacation would be better. There is a big wage gap in the shop also. Some are under paid drastically and some are over paid drastically. But they don't want you to know that!

      Advice to Management

      Favoritism with certain employees. Most management is lazy, and unmotivated to lead employees. I've taken most of my direction from senior machinists.
