Former Employee - Performance Development Engineer in Columbus, IN
Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

1. Lots of free time at hand since job is 8-to-5
2. Nice people as it is in the midwest.

Cons

1. You will be stuck in this industry with no great learning and exit options.
2. The pay is too low compared to the other companies.

Advice to Management

You need to differentiate between the best employees and the average joes. The hiring process is too haphazard with lots of people hired during boom and similarly lots fired during bust without considerable planning.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fridley, MN
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Salary is okay, about typical

    Cons

    Understaffed, but won't bring in new people when needed
    When orders pick up, kiss your work/life balance goodbye, overtime is declared on a moment's notice, including Saturdays
    Horrible working environment, very noisy
    Management expects clockwork precision in attendance, one nanosecond late (no matter what reason), and you get demerit points
    A "we own your soul" attitude in general

    Advice to Management

    Keep an adequate staff in place, even if that means bringing in more temps when the workload is heavy. Stop declaring overtime at the last minute, plan it ahead of time and give advance notice. A little courtesy goes a long way. And give employees/contractors more flexible options on when to work their overtime, instead of requiring them to come in at 5 in the morning.
