    I worked at Ellwood Group Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Good environment and the company does care about the employees. There are opportunities to learn and advance and high performing employees are rewarded. Lots of great people to work with.

    Cons

    Market diversification needs improvement. The downturn in oil and gas and changing market dynamics make for tough conditions but there is a focus on growth.

    There is a definite pay gap between college grads and older workers with life time skills.

    Pros

    Financially very strong company with limited handful of good employees who cares.

    Cons

    Management team has been struggling big time to bring up the team's capability from "rough-machining" to "final-machining" to win major contract with big O&G companies due to having ran by closely knitted incompetent leadership team. The team has lost concentration on what makes the business successful to lob sided group-thinking culture.

    Advice to Management

    The roof is leaking and only corporate can fix it.

    I worked at Ellwood Group Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and great benefits

    Cons

    Upper management is not always honest about what is going on and have been known to make decisions based on feelings and not facts

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and listen, make an effort to be honest and tell employees that you just cant comment about a subject when asked rather than telling them a line of BS to avoid answering

    I have been working at Ellwood Group Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hourly and salary wages are above average, this is a reflection of work environment and work schedules, salary work 60 to 70 hrs normally

    Cons

    Very few English speaking employees, quality is all ways a problem due to management and lack of a formal program in place, safety is all so not taken seriously.
    Managers are very politically motivated and go out of the way to make them self look good at other expense

    Advice to Management

    Get a quality program up and running with coverage and controls in place. Stop the politics and infighting and sarcasm that comes from the PA employees

    Pros

    The company try very hard to keep employees when work was slow. Stable work envirorment.Safety and human resources has improved greatly over the past 3 years.

    Cons

    Low pay. Dirty working envirorment. Management does not plan very well. They look talk to employees on the job about updating equipment to see if it will make the job better or easier.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees when they have issues with new equipment. Raise salaries to make them competitive with other manufacturing jobs in the area.
