I worked at Baldor Electric full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

A paycheck(albeit, a small one).

Cons

"We promote from within" is a joke. I have a 4 year degree in engineering and 3 of the last 4 engineer jobs were filled with new hires. Pay, along with raises, is extremely low. The location I worked at bragged about setting profit records each year, only to reward the people that make the actual money very little. Bias directly from the top is also a concern. As soon as they feel you don't represent their "core beliefs", you will be sent out the door with no consideration of your work record. Fear of losing your job is exploited to the max.

Advice to Management

There's no advice you can give these people that would make a difference. They have a vision, and hourly employees aren't in it.

    I worked at Baldor Electric full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The only pro is that the job is easy as long as you pay attention.

    Cons

    My college degree and seniority were meaningless. A promotion is impossible unless you are friends with or go to church with management. Pay is low compared to others in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Headquarters need to visit plant locations and actually talk with hourly employees. The location I worked at lost a lot of good people and will continue to do so. It's almost as if they're shooting themselves in the foot.
