    I worked at Edelbrock as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The majority of the departments there are willing to teach up and coming talent. A very clean work environment.

    Cons

    The restrooms are atrocious! Corporate management needs to be more pleasant and more approachable.

    Advice to Management

    Executive management needs to be more personable. They need to be more affable and smile more in the workplace.

    Pros

    Very good hours 4 day work week and occasional overtime when needed.

    Cons

    Work environment is in a foundry, so it is hot, dirty, loud, and labor intensive.

    Advice to Management

    None management is actually decent and does not interfere with day to day work operations unless giving direction.


  7. "This is a well known automotive aftermarket manufacturer that prides itself with products made in the USA."

    Pros

    End users and customers can "see" the products being designed, cast and manufactured here in Southern California. Most employees take pride in the products and use them for their personal use in vintage hot rods and muscle cars. This company prides itself for being California born and living since 1938. They are world known.

    Cons

    Lacking a true marketing department and focus for potential sales is the weakest link.

    I worked at Edelbrock as a contractor

    Pros

    Discounts on vehicle purchases through car manufacturers...

    Cons

    Everything else...this place sucks and is incredibly boring....people are not friendly because essentially no one wants to be there....seriously avoid this place, I don't know what communist era munitions factories were like but I'm pretty sure it's what this company fashions itself after.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing...you guys don't even want to be there

    Pros

    This is a great place to work for if you are a zombie looking to get a steady paycheck every week and medical coverage a discounted rate, that's it.

    Cons

    1) No advancement opportunities
    2) No such thing as fair performance measures, the only people that get noticed are the ones who spend 90% of their time blowing their own horns with management and the other 10% doing what they are supposed to be doing...Performing!
    3) Strategic Planning, Personnel development, compensation and incentives based on merit? I'm not quite sure they even know what those terms mean.
    4) No matter how much you do, how much you think you know, how much you try to foster a positive change...the environment and morale is so low across the board, that if you stay there long enough you will turn into a hopeless, brainless zombie too!

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management should do nothing if they are content with having a workforce of lifeless zombies managing their business from the TOP - DOWN.
