    I worked at Ditch Witch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    very good pay and benefits

    Cons

    located in Perry OK, 50 miles away from OKC & Edmond where most people live, making it difficult for the company to hire and keep engineers.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if the company has an engineering office close to the city making it easier for those who does not want to move to Perry.

    Pros

    Family like atmosphere. You are surrounded by very good people, that try to make the best out of a horrible situation.

    Cons

    Corporate mind set. Pay sucks but the hours do too.

    Advice to Management

    Stop chasing a bonus that does very little to help the employees bring home money.

    Pros

    good company. good benefits. exciting work.

    Cons

    poor company location. top electronics management are micro managers. too much time spent concentrating on metrics is just plain silly and a waste of time. Need to focus on results and productivity, not report writing and showmanship.

    Advice to Management

    top management in the electronics division could use a much needed change. this would help the company to grow in s positive direction. need to get a better manager with electronics product experience. not just a bean counter.

    Culture is very closed. Not open to outside expertise, and is very much of a "good ole boys club" Basically if you haven't been there for 20 years, you have no opportunity for advancement.
