    I worked at Astec full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You'll stay busy year round. Upper management and HR team is very helpful. Your fellow employees really look out for you.

    Cons

    I really don't have anything for cons except maybe, hot in summer and cold in winter. Oh and wet outside when it rains.

    Advice to Management

    Again, not much to say. They always looked out for everyone, from safety to any help they could give for family's in need.

    I worked at Astec full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Definitely the people. Innovative manufacturing/longstanding company.

    Cons

    Putting the wrong people in the right position.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention when there is high turnover in a department. Astec, Inc. is a great company, but when a department experiences high turnover...there is a reason.

    I have been working at Astec full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They have a great benefits package, a clean work environment, and they offer better than average wages. Overall it is a nice place to work. My boss was a great guy, and very understanding of health of family issues.

    Cons

    I worked for the engineering department for almost 6 years. During that time, we continued to use significantly out of date software and hardware even though we had new versions available, and couldn't upgrade dye to the lack of manager support to train employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions, determine they are good, and them stick with them.
