    I worked at B&B Electronics Mfg. as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are easy to get along with. Alot going on, good place to learn. When I was there, was a lot of overtime. Seem to be always looking for help.

    Cons

    Very busy environment, be ready to STAND for 8+ hours. Work very compact and needs to be expanded. Disconnect with upper management and manufacturing floor. Never offered full time position. They like to contract out.

    Pros

    It was a good company with the good of the employees in mind. Management seem to care and there was a good work life balance, of course that is all history now

    Cons

    Company is in big trouble, it is up for sale with significant layoffs. the management team Jerry O appear to be overmatched in their ability to turn the company around. They have made 3 acquisitions and have let go almost everyone from two of them.

    Advice to Management

    company needs new management , the team in place now only knows how to cut staff to keep expenses in line, there is no growth

    Change is important in this economy. The right change at the right timing is monumental.

    I have been working at B&B Electronics Mfg. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many good people remain, at one time was very product and customer-oriented.

    Cons

    The company has lost its way. Changes at middle and top management and poor handling of aquisitions.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs an identity that customers understand. Morale is very low.

    I worked at B&B Electronics Mfg. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    B&B is willing to pay for talent; Ottawa, IL is a small town. Some good people willing to work hard.

    Cons

    High-pressure environment as direction is determined by an investment firm that owns the company. If considering, be aware that you may be able to contribute to short-term growth and make a decent living for a period of time. Hard to watch long-term loyal employees being let go.
