    Mechanical Engineer Intern in Greenup, IL

    I worked at Evapco for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Great work life balance. Engaging projects.

    Cons

    Great company but is located in a very small town so if you aren't from the area it could be boring.

    I have been working at Evapco full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Location, health care, retirement has the chance of being great.

    Cons

    Low pay, very old school in all aspects. Huge pay and social gap between the higher ups and average employees.

    Advice to Management

    Bridge the communication gap and pay gap, you can’t expect quality work out of low paid employees. The employees that are worth having and or keeping will find work elsewhere.

    I worked at Evapco full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The Pay isn't bad but could be better Overtime Health Insurance is excellent! Company picnic with free beer at Hershey Park Promotion from within the Company

    Cons

    Constant Mandatory Overtime Very poor planning Constant finger pointing when dealing with the engineers and prints being wrong Mid-level Management gives the impression like they have no clue what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house within the shop office and engineering. Those two departments are the biggest roadblock to making the company successful again.

    Pros

    Goal oriented company looking to grow and expand.

    Cons

    Poor management throughout with unrealistic goals that have no understanding what it actually takes to get things accomplished the right way leads to tension and dissatisfaction among the employees. The benefits were okay, not as great as they are made out to be. Offered basic low health care coverage. You are fine as long as nothing serious happened to you or your family members. Pay was always low and compensated... with profit-sharing. Profit-sharing was nice when business was good, not so much when it wasn't. Raises are pretty much set, not based on merit or job performance and not everyone performed at the same level but based on a budget. Negotiating was never accepted. Advancement in the company was an illusion. It seemed that only family and people close to management would get promotions, even when they were under-qualified for the position. ESOP is offered as a retirement plan. This is great for the people that were with the company during all the major growth. For new employees, its hard to see how they will experience that same growth over the same time period.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees equally as people and less like numbers. Be truthful and up front with them. Opportunities and advancement in the company should be based more on experience and job performance.

    I have been working at Evapco full-time

    Pros

    Treats employees well, thinks big as a company, great perks, profit sharing, ESOP program.

    Cons

    Sometimes the global company sticks to old ways of doing things just for the sake of doing things the way they have always been done.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to newer ways of doing things. Things should be improved if there is a way to improve them over time.

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

    Pros

    ESOP plan, decent health insurance, and biannual bonuses

    Cons

    Low salaries, management opportunities & tuition reimbursement program are only for white men, management has no training or experience, terrible office locations, no employee diversity, old-school mentality, & management that is not open to change

    Advice to Management

    Open offices in cities to attract young professionals with different backgrounds, stop hiring relatives and hire people with the right experience, consider increasing the sales force

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Evapco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not very many that I can think of. Cheap insurance profit sharing was nice to get. Some co workers were good.

    Cons

    Where do I begin. Pay is terrible and takes forever to get to a decent livable wage. Insurance is cheap but good however I made so little that I actually qualified for food stamps and Medicaid. Was promised a certain starting wage but was way way less. People I work with are horribly grumpy. It’s gets really old. Training was terrible for me as well as a ton of others. If the lead likes you they will help you and... train you if not your screwed. The profit sharing barely makes the yearly salary worth while. Mandatory overtime was horrible expect to work 50 plus hours a week. They lie about some benefits and when they start. They always push to get units out but the top can’t order parts and get prints down in time so we actually have time to do things. Very short staffed in assembly.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more help. Give decent starting wage and raises. Pay is terrible. Get Minnesota to figure out what they are doing and get parts ordered.

    I have been working at Evapco full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Profit-sharing and ESOP for all employees is a huge motivator. In general, the atmosphere is friendly and the company is growing. The fact that there are many long-term employees speaks well of the benefits and work environment.

    Cons

    Not sure how many opportunities there are for promotion. Lots of tribal knowledge involved in the work, rather than processes spelled out, so it is hard for outsiders to come in. Worried about what will happen when some of the leaders and long-term employees get to retirement age soon.

    Advice to Management

    Keep seeking involvement from all areas of the shop and office, improve technological resources and systems, develop people to promote from within.
