    Pros

    Growing company that was recently acquired by Toyota. We're a top 20 company in the world for material handling integration and will probably a top ten company by years end. Great people to work with and really make new employees feel welcomed.

    Cons

    Need more staff for the amount of work to be done but that's also a good problem to have. Travel expectations can be a little more than advertised but being home every weekend takes some of the sting out

    Advice to Management

    Hire hire hire

    Pros

    I have been working for Bastian Solutions for almost 3 years. I can attest that this company really wants their customers to succeed and their employees to grow. Each employee is given the opportunity to share and implement their own ideas. No idea is ever ignored because of time or money as other large companies do. With the latest acquisition by Toyota it only reassures the focus on customer and employee. In my 17 year career this is the best place I have ever worked. The management is focused and every employee helps one another to get the job done.

    Cons

    No cons to speak of at this moment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on employees and engagement.

    Pros

    Bastian Solutions offers rewarding and challenging work with a great company culture setting. While growing very rapidly and with the acquisition by Toyota, the company maintains a family business atmosphere. The entire Bastian family is one of the most caring, generous, and down to earth families in Indiana. One of benefits I enjoy the most is that we are constantly using the latest and most advanced technologies in the industry. I would also offer that our internal team gains knowledge and experience far faster than the typical organization and would recommend working at Bastian Solutions whether a college graduate or industry seasoned expert.

    Cons

    There are no cons worth noting,

    Advice to Management

    The main advice I would give is to continue to closely manage the acquisition with Toyota.
