I have been working at CMCO for 10 years. CMCO is a leading designer and manufacturer company for material handling intelligent motion solutions.

First let me say that I genuinely hope things turn around for this company. The potential is certainly there. I think they are 2-3 good hires/fires away. - Inflexibility. Successful companies realize when something isn't working. If they fail, they fail quickly and pivot.

CMCO does not offer competitive PTO.Continue reading
