    I worked at Eagle Picher full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A purpose driven career. Great co-workers, supervisors and middle management.

    Cons

    The current owners and CEO.

    Advice to Management

    End the culture of fear that you have instituted. If an employee is distracted by the daily fear of losing their job for no reason, they're not concentrating on their work.

    I worked at Eagle Picher full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My immediate supervisor was great; worked with my schedule, gave good advice, and generally cared about my well being both at work and at home. Coworkers were awesome. Overall mission was satisfying.

    Cons

    Senior management was difficult to work with at times, very much focused on taking care of their own; good ole boy system; challenging to understand work methods without getting involved or already knowing them.

    Advice to Management

    Empower junior leaders and trust some of their judgement calls.

    Pros

    Eagle Picher provides an overall good environment to work in. Supervisors are good people that will listen to your concerns.

    Cons

    Human Resources is down on employment and their work is spread too thin. This makes trying to contact HR next to impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Managment needs to hire more people to HR. Most jobs have too much down time, management needs to better ways of distributing work between their employees.

    I have been working at Eagle Picher (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are great to work with and for.

    Cons

    The type of company that it is makes it fodder for bigger companies looking to take over, flip and make a profit

    Pros

    Few. It's not the company it once was but it still has the potential if the right leadership was in place.

    Cons

    So many managers lack leadership ability. There is such opportunity for this to be a great company if the right leaders were in place. Dishonesty is prevalent in the HR department.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house, from top to bottom in management. You've several good leaders within but few compared to the managers in top positions that lack leadership skills.
