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

Pros

Job Security is typically good. If you live in the Canton Ohio area there are plenty of opportunities for advancement within the company.

Cons

If you work at a satellite facility, advancement typically only comes with relocation. They prefer to look around Timken and bring in talent rather than promote from within the same facility.

Advice to Management

Be aware of standard starting salaries for entry level positions and gauge where your employees are at. Some of your existing employees may have come from acquisitions and their salaries might not be competitive within the company.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Timken full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A job. Local credit union. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Focus lost on employees and customers. Lack of leadership. More focused on meetings and blame, than servicing customers and employee relations. Upper management seems to be less interested in the products that have made smaller companies successful before buying out, and more interested in red tape. Poor implementation of SAP and poor match for business. Why replace something that works with something that does not?

    Advice to Management

    Realize your strengths can be in your employee base, and bringing in useless management with no idea how to lead, is a recipe for disaster and poor employee relations. Not to mention decline in customer satisfaction. Keeping current customers happy is easier than finding new business (Varian, GE, Dunlee etc). Expecting 60+ hours a week from employees (supervisors) is not practical or something that should be maintained for long periods of time.
