    Advice to Management

    Upper management is arrogant, patronizing, plays favorites and is disrespectful . Promotions are handed out to employees who are promiscuous and or display similar poor qualities. Hard work is not rewarded. Someone needs to set a clear tone to the leaders at CMCO this culture that has been going on for years needs to change. No one that works here can honestly say they love their job in this horrible environment

    I have been working at Columbus McKinnon

    Pros

    I cant think of any

    Cons

    Very poor management with changes in management very often. Managers are not given any structure or real direction and then they are discarded to cover up for upper managements short comings.
