    I have been working at Briggs & Stratton full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They pay pretty well. Laid back environment. Management is very good. The people I work with are nice. Rarely work weekends which is nice in summer.

    Cons

    No vacation for 6 years so don't plan on taking a trip unless its for 2 days. They don't tell you that when you get hired. The job gets very boring and my days are long. Very hot in summer.

    Great place to work with a lot of great things happening. Glad to see there are some things still built in America

    Management can be hard to work with sometimes. A lot of salaried employees tend to disappear early especially on Friday's.

    Pros

    Very friendly and willing to help with any questions I had, some freedom to pursue your own projects, pay is decent

    Cons

    Everyone is older in the department I was in, not a lot of opportunity for interns to be hired so they are not necessarily passing down knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Budget to hire co-op students if they are good enough, One of my fellow co-ops was well liked by everyone, extremely knowledgeable, contributed significantly to the company, and there was no money to hire him or anyone else so the talent was lost.
