    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

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

    Pros

    The management was the best I ever worked for. Nupar had it going. Good ontime, no rejects and everyone worked together. I felt so sorry for the Plant Manager the day he told us we were closing.

    Cons

    Baldor should have looked at Nupar and learned from us on how to run a business and treat people. Baldor screwed everyone at Nupar.

    Advice to Management

    You need to talk with the Managers here answer learn from them.

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

    Pros

    Freedom to do my job, the people, ability to advance, I could tell my boss what I think, incredibly gratifying, I was in a position to teach/educate people, benefits, pay.

    Cons

    Had to deal with molten aluminum in some cases (got burned), very repetitive, in some cases I wasn't the most popular person (which told me that I was doing my job).

    Advice to Management

    The only thing I wanted to see happen was for someone to say good job (Pat on the back).
