Pros
Cons
  • Lack of direction by upper management (in 9 reviews)

    I worked at Clyde Bergemann full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A great industry to be involved in. Called my own shots out in the field. Good pay and benefits. Great bunch of engineers to work with.

    Cons

    Drama filed inside the offices. Higher management has little to no idea of the company products and or in the field applications. New owners of company have literally ruined sale and service departments. Competitors now are able to re-establish their markets because of this new crap way of thinking everything is "development" . ... yeah.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to how we ran our own REGIONS!

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Clyde Bergemann full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code, telecommuting options,

    Cons

    Zero formal training. Poor, or misleading feedback, completely decentralized and compartmentalized knowledge base, lean operation

    Advice to Management

    A lot of operational and business issues have their roots in substandard or non-existent training and support. Most likely a consequence of running too lean for too long.

    Pros

    Company vehicle, decent pay, freedom to make choices. The customer is you main supervisor. Take care of the customer, keep them happy, and you will have lots of schedule freedom.

    Cons

    Not much interaction with main office. Not much internal training on systems. Training would benefit the employees and the company as a whole. Would allow the employees to help provide a superior service.

    Advice to Management

    Investing in training for staff would greatly benefit the company as a whole.

    I worked at Clyde Bergemann full-time

    Pros

    If it weren't for the spare parts business the place would be closing by now.
    That's the only thing keeping the lights lit. They went through an entire year without booking a major project or order.

    Cons

    They rob Peter to pay Paul.

    I worked at Clyde Bergemann full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Under former CEO Han's leadership during CBPG's growth period, the company gave mid and junior management a lot of freedom to make independent decisions, take modest risks, and make quick decisions. The company thrived.

    Cons

    One big job showed that Management could not admit mistakes in project design or bidding. A lot good people lost their jobs over management's stubbornness. European oversight trusted the wrong managers who were better politicians than they were technicians or managers. Sales force was technically weak. Rampant Brown-nosing.

    Advice to Management

    Hard work and honesty is more important than protecting your turf.

    Pros

    Decent medical benefits and 401K match.

    Cons

    Resistant to change. We've always done it this way should be under the company name.Employees are bullied by management and made to feel like anything they do will be questioned.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all of your employees and not just the chosen few. Numbers don't lie and the direction of the business is evident that something is wrong. Customer complaints need to be addressed not cast aside as an isolated incident. Internal audits done by non bias individuals would be very revealing.

    Pros

    The majority of the reviews posted on this web site were written by disgruntled employees who weren't willing to provide the commitment and willingness necessary to succeed at this company. There are certainly some challenges in training and absorbing the knowledge in several of the engineering positions but those committed to learning have found a way to succeed and become valued members to this company. You must have drive and commitment, and we pay top dollar for it.

    Cons

    Employee Review program could be re-evaluated. It is better than nothing, but not real popular. Benefits for employees should be the same across all entire company regardless of region or country. .

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to the employees.
