    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Rarely worked nights or weekends

    Cons

    Too much work piled on a few drivers. The more you get done the more they will add to your workload.

    Advice to Management

    Employing more salesmen than drivers is a problem. They could get the work but couldn't service the accounts.

    I have been working at Champion Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The hourly workers are cool to around, self paced, lots of equipment to work, 401k is really good and they offer a 2% pension.

    Cons

    Safety is a joke the rules change everyday, Managers (Engineers) are a joke they know nothing when it comes to mechanics the only thing they care about is penny pinching because it looks good on them and they get a big bonus. ERT team never runs drills, alarm system doesn't work, no one is held accountable for their actions, operators are very junior, systems are not up to date, i am surprise that their hasn't been a bad accident here yet.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for your guys, its ok to say no to another Engineer, Up the pay

    I worked at Champion Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small company atmosphere, international travel. Compensation was excellent compared to like companies. Were bought out by Nalco so perhaps the company will be better run.

    Cons

    Lack of strong leadership, no clear vision. Management was very clicky, if you were not golfing with the VP and Plant Managers you were excluded from decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Set clear vision and share road map to achieve that vision with the team all the way down.

    Pros

    Culture, some management, and work life balance.

    Cons

    Communication between core groups on joint projects.


  9. "Challenging But Rewarding"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Your contributions have company-wide visible impacts. The limited work force requires those who are willing to extra responsibilities. Rapid growth demands contnual change in work philosophy.

    Cons

    Rapid growth has revealed the limited resources of a small company. The lack of standardization and documentation is prevalent but was necessary for a growing market.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to demand standardization

    I worked at Champion Technologies (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I got to work with many different types of lab equipment

    Cons

    The company itself seems like a happy family before you start. It's not until after you start how you find out how everyone is unhappy with everyone else. There are a lot of politics in this company. I have worked at large companies and small companies and I've never run into so many people who would back stab you at almost any moment. This is probably one of the worst experiences I've had working for an employer. When I got laid off, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

    Advice to Management

    Management wasn't very involved in anything. They laid off people who worked at the company for 25+ years...and new employees.
