I worked at Baldor Electric full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

clean work environment, decent facility

Cons

management has a basic lack of understanding scheduling, manning and tooling. they also lack people management skills. takes a year or longer to go from temp to full time hire, pay for a temp is marginal. lots of overtime due to poor scheduling. no basic knowledge of parts per hour or other basic industrial production. temps get treated very poorly by management (temps are easily replaceable therefore they are not considered any kind of asset regardless of their knowledge and experience). they also don't care if a temp gets hurt on the job.

Advice to Management

start from scratch with your management team. revise your temp to hire policy. stop the good old boy way of thinking. the company could be very successful with the right leadership but will only make due until things change.

    I have been working at Baldor Electric full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    good equipment, clean work environment, stable work, company has stuck to no layoff policy in past

    Cons

    takes years to get on day shift, and work too many weekends during summer to keep up even though machines and building stations are just sitting and not being ran for entire shifts during the week.

    Advice to Management

    people need 2 nights a week at home with family. Schedule overtime to keep areas fully staffed during the week, don't let machines, building stations sit unused and then have to work Saturday to make up.

    good equipment, stable employment, they stand by their no layoff policy no matter how economy and demand is.

    Cons

    takes years to get on day shift, too many weekends during summer.

    Advice to Management

    schedule more overtime during the week and keep machines running and building stations staffed on all three shift. Employees should have 2 nights off on the weekend to spend with family.
