    I worked at Carpenter Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It paid better tan previous jobs that I held. Coworkers were quirky and entertaining

    Cons

    The company employed half of its workforce through a temp agency. A single safety violation would get you fired and workers hid fairly serious injuries and grotesque scars because of the legitimate fear of termination. The company offered little in the ways of job security unless you passed the 18 month gauntlet of being a temp and the 6 month permanent employee probation period.. After having worked for a company wit a very sympathetic and hands on corporate structure, I was fairly appalled at the lack of humanity applied to the employees

    Advice to Management

    People are not numbers. If you wish to employ educated individuals with a potential to improve the company, you need to start treating employees like people


  2. "It is a steel mill; it employs laborers and mechanics in addition to various type office jobs."

    I have been working at Carpenter Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company has been in business for over 100 yrs, without a labor union. It occupies appr. 300 acres of land on the outskirts of Reading. We make a decent wage for the labor that we provide, and our benefits are fairly compatible to other company's plans.

    Cons

    The only 2 drawbacks that I perceive here are the lack of vacation days and the outrageous timeframe it takes a person to reach just 5 wks. In addition, working 6 and 7 days a wk can get old real fast.
