    Pros

    A great environment that promotes personal growth. Very few employees complaining about their work environment. I really enjoyed the four years that I worked for the company.

    Cons

    Very demanding hours... The company has top tier customers that demand service and availability around the clock.

    Advice to Management

    More emphasis needs to be placed on assuring that all employees maintain a healthy work life balance. This often gets overlooked, especially with the employees who travel for the company.

    I have been working at Barry-Wehmiller full-time

    Pros

    There isn't much to say here. I like the flexibility I have and there is room to grow by it being such a large organization. However, the cons outweigh the pros.

    Cons

    Lack of communication within leadership team
    No processes or standards
    Good 'Ol Boy Club
    Not innovative - still sends things through the mail carrier
    Corporate has no idea what they're doing

    Honestly, I am working here until I can find something new. Not a terrible company but not a place you will want to stay for very long.

    Advice to Management

    Take more responsibility to examine what's going on at each location, this global company is slowly falling apart. There's too much fluff with GPL, Everybody Matters, etc. You aren't people centric, you're a results driven type of organization.

    Advice to Management

    Get on board with the culture or go somewhere else.

    I worked at Barry-Wehmiller full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Please watch the reviews on here. While I was working there, we were instructed to flood sites like Glassdoor with good reviews anytime an unfavorable review was made. There has been a glut of recent reviews that are so stellar and so fake.

    Cons

    Toxicity is tolerated in some departments.

    Advice to Management

    Quit forcing current employees to give fake reviews and give a less than honest picture of the company. It's unethical.

    Advice to Management

    Continue separating consultants from contractors

    ""Everybody Matters" Really?"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    • Pay isn't bad
    • Good for someone just out of college.
    • Rapid growth
    • Good people to work with
    • No sick days. If you're sick then don't come in—they don't count against your vacation days

    Cons

    This has been the most disappointing job I've ever had, so for me it's a job until I find something better.
    • The saying around here is "Everybody Matters" or "Go home feeling fulfilled." I've never been fulfilled here.
    • There are definitely favorites here that's why "Everybody Matters" should be "Everybody Matters but Some Matter More."
    • Culture may be great is some departments, but not mine.
    • CEO has nice vision, but he is old school and it's hard to get him to accept new ideas and move forward.
    • Medical insurance is VERY high. I can't afford to have my family on it so we have an HSA.
    • If you don't drink the Kool-Aid then you get labeled as a "non team player" and you get left out of everything (meetings)

    Advice to Management

    • Practice what you preach!
    • Better communication!
