Pros

Actuant allows you to get involved with a lot of projects and you can learn a lot during your time here.

Cons

Actuant works their employees too hard for the least amount of pay. You are involved with so much and are expected to do so much with little resources. They do not pay well and is not a good company for women to grow women.

    Professional Growth, cross training, internal training. There are a lot of internal training programs that are very insightful and well contsructed.

    Strategic Alignment and long term planning. There is a strategy for the company but how to obtain that goal is up for debate. Long term planning must be compeleted in order to reach your goals.

    Pros

    Actuant offers good benefits, coworkers are very supportive and the products produced are good quality and have a high level of brand recognition in the industrial marketplace.

    Cons

    The senior management is so focused on the the bottom line that they forget about the people that are working to make things happen. Very little effort is put into training and promoting people. They are very quick to buy companies absorb and close down businesses and move them offshore. If you are a company that is purchased by Actuant watch out! Start looking for another job as soon as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should take more notice of the people and the effort that is given to bring profit to the company. They need to take better care of their employees that have shown dedication and commitment to their jobs especially within companies that are small acquisition.
