I have been working at Altec Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Solid reputation in the industry, pay, benefits, team, really like the people that I work with, challenge, ownership. The good contributors in the company are probably too busy to find and post on places like this, so I thought I would take the time!

Cons

It can get busy, usually it does take more than 40 hours in the week to get it done, but there is understanding to leave for something personal. It is a very hard working company, very responsive to the customer and to each other. That is not a "con," but that is not an environment for everyone.

Advice to Management

Just continue to live to the values as much as possible every day.

    Pros

    Great people, great leadership, great customers, a growth company.

    Cons

    There is no such thing as a perfect company. One of the best things about Altec is that the associates are focused on continuous improvement. As a result, the company gets better every day to the benefit of Customers, Associates, and Suppliers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing by focusing on Customer Satisfaction, Teamwork, and Continuous Improvement.

    I have been working at Altec Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits
    Fortunate to work with some very hard working employees
    Family first

    Cons

    Lack of direction from leadership
    Hording "favorite" employees who under perform
    Layoffs based on seniority, not value
    Leadership has a lack of respect for employees

    Advice to Management

    Leadership to step in and understand why employees are dissatisfied or satisfied. Use this information to improve the company. If you see work place harassment report it and do not let it take place or cover it up. This occurred several times where a senior manager repeatedly harassed an employee and no action was taken. Actually, a few months later the senior manager was promoted. Keep employees who have a proven potential rather than laying off those who make the greatest impact.
