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

    Pros

    Good pay, friendly environment. Management is pretty good. You can talk to them and they listen and try to help. I've worked at other manufacturing companies in town and I am not used to this. There are a lot of people who don't appreciate because they've never worked elsewhere before. Safety is huge.

    Cons

    No AC. Summers get really hot. Sometimes overtime gets old but it is good money so I don't complain.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the safety rewards. Keep having communication meetings. It helps. Bring christmas gift cards back

    Pros

    It is a high paying job with 40 plus hours a week.

    Cons

    The buildings don't have air conditioning so it does get really hot in the summer. Also, it's really loud., You have to wear hearing protection, steal toe shoes, gloves, etc. Very strict , Tough attendance policy. (No personal sick days or guaranteed bad weather days).

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees that they're appreciated and cared about and that they're not just a number.
