    I have been working at Columbus McKinnon full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Not many anymore. The pay is okay. The company is doing well financially. That’s as good as it gets. The benefits used to be good but not anymore.

    Cons

    Senior leaders are the same old worn out leaders. The company recently rolled out new mission, vision and values. It wouldn’t be so bad if there were new senior leaders that believed in them and actually lived them. They don’t trust each other and treat the people badly. The company is doing well and still cutting heads. Not a stable place to be, especially if you are a female in management. Seems like they don’t want...

    Advice to Management

    It doesn’t matter what my advice is as no one cares nor will they listen. No one feels comfortable giving advice as they will be the next to be gone.

    I worked at Columbus McKinnon full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Caring people who want the business to succeed. Good pay. Can grow if you have initiative. Everyone works hard at this company so a strong work ethic is required.

    Cons

    Benefits could be better. (vacation/sick time). Too much gossip and not enough facts happening so more communication between mgmt and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate Mgmt - Remember the people who make or assemble the products when creating new processes that don’t add value to the customer.

    I have been working at Columbus McKinnon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very strong vision for the company under Mark Morelli. 2 years of record breaking results, which the teams are very excited about. Company makes decisions quickly and is focusing on 80/20 simplification.

    Cons

    Need to invest in better tools. Spend too much time on manual processes that don't add value.
