      I worked at Barry-Wehmiller full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      For the most part, the culture is good throughout the company. The department I was in though were backstabbers and would talk bad about you behind your back.

      Cons

      • The people in the department I worked in were very much backstabbers. • The individual who caused the most trouble and liked to "stir the pot" is now the department manager. Go figure. • Had very "clicky" groups in my dept. Reminded me of high school.

      Advice to Management

      BW is know for their "good" culture so it should be the same throughout ALL departments.

      I have been working at Barry-Wehmiller full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Quarterly bonus for being on a client-site/staff ag Project Manager/SME on each site to provide assistance Introductory orientation on consulting and the company growth for first timers Lots of company paid meals

      Cons

      Very cliquey structured - it felt more like high school than a professional environment Lots of internal meetings - felt less productive than beneficial The training courses needs an update - they are just droning videos vs interactive learning Medical is overpriced and poor vision benefits

      I have been working at Barry-Wehmiller full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      You do not really have to work here. Management makes you feel like they care. Pay isnt bad. Free food occasionally.

      Cons

      Health care is astronomical for a family plan. Paying almost $1000 a month just in health care. Little to no chances of advancement if you are good at your job or don’t “know someone”. People are slowly dying or retiring and no real attempts at replacing them. Equipment is outdated and being downsized as well. A lot of time and money is wasted on meetings daily. Seeing other employees doing nothing or shooting...

      Advice to Management

      Hold ALL employees accountable for their actions and their work. That is how you boost profitability.

        Great people from top to bottom. Room to advance if you want to put in a little extra effort. Great company lunches 3 or 4 times a year.

        At times it can get a little hectic and it may require that you are forced to work late and/or on the weekends.
