Salary was the only pro.
Everything else. Management doesnt care about you as a person. You're just a replaceable cog in the corporate machine.2Columbus McKinnon Response2y

They have a product I had/have a lot of faith in. Their core products you can say you are proud to have been a part of putting out there into the workforce. The corporate office truly has good people who believe in their products, and in their minds, they believe they are doing what is best for the folks out across their different divisions.
At the division level things are a joke. The good old boy system is in place--not just where I worked, but over the years the contacts I had across the company told me it was the same where they were. I personally heard one HR manager tell our entire office that we should just be glad they allow us to work for them and that they gave us a job. If you are one of the Southern facilities, women are paid about half what men are in salaried positions. No room for advancement...none whatsoever...unless you are willing to kiss some major behind and be a yes man. Before I quit I saw an email that was the tipping point for me, it came from one HR manager to my supervisor. I had asked for a significant raise because I was grossly underpaid (clerk salary for professional work). The HR manager actually said I was paid too little compared to the same position across the corporation. Do you think they upped my salary to within range across the corporation? NO. One excuse after another. I left after nearly 20 years of empty promises and excuses as to why I wasn't good enough to advance. Walked into a new position doing much less work, no weekends, no nights, for over $10k more annually. CM pays some people well--if you are the teacher's pet.7

Reasonable salary. Job security.Cannot be fired without serious cause.
Management cannot plan, understand product development, or understand the value of proper engineering.3

Decent salary. Local leadership is steering the company in the right direction. Many improvements and machinery upgrades are being put in place and should make the company better in the long run.
Director level manager is bent on imposing his vision on the company. The problem is he doesn't understand the unique challenges of our facility and is pushing textbook solutions which don't work.1

Decent pay for easy work. Feeling that I can count on the other guys on the floor. Semi-stable employment
Union contract means nothing when management doesn't follow it anyways. Instead of doing what it says in the book, they will go by 'past practice' - aka what makes them look best to corporate. Mindset is not about the employees at all, only what will make management look best!! I would even call the treatment towards employees abusive. I know some of the past practices violate federal laws. And they wonder why employees are confrontational! Management doesnt have a clue what is going on. This goes from Engineering to Human Resources to Operations. Wrong information is given if and when you get any information at all. No praise or incentives for doing good work or more work than required. No reason to try to do well at all. I truly think both salary and hourly employees would flock out the door if given the chance to. The list of bad things about working here is never ending.4

CMCO is a great pleace to work. Modern environment, and a good work life balance. Co-workers as well as supervisors have a positive attitude.
