    Pros

    Have worked in Manufacturing support at Ferno over 10 years. Exciting products and great people make this a special place to work.

    Perfect? No, but a wonderful place to work, yes.
    Management is open to new ideas and not afraid to make them work.

     

    Advice to Management

    I have no intention of doing anything, but finish my career at Ferno.

    I have been working at Ferno-Washington full-time

    Pros

    Located in rural ohio for employment and tax benefits in an old airforce base

    Cons

    Company has changed from bring a family owned people first place to big comoany backstabbing culture. New leadership donot care about brand or people only personal agenda. Insulting and arrogant . Losses and primary base erosion no worry for them just want personal agenda to continue

    Advice to Management

    Having a meeting with 10 people will not resolve company issues

    I have been working at Ferno-Washington full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Five of us who have been at Ferno for a combined 20 years sat down and read every input posted on the Glass Door regarding Ferno. With only one exception, we were able to identify the employees who wrote in with negative vibes for a great organization.

    Cons

    All of these naysayers had these things in common- chronic complainers, poor attitudes, less than average contributors and only care about themselves. We identified 15 people who wrote in and submit that they sound
    just like all the other habitual complainers at other companies. Nothing is ever good enough, no bonus is ever high enough and the coffee is always cold.

    Advice to Management

    Our feeling is we wish they would go. It is our intent to let them know. Believe in a great
    company such as Ferno or go complain somewhere else.

    Pros

    Family owned business where all the employees care about the medical equipment produced.

    Cons

    Marketing is very aggressive with engineering.

    Advice to Management

    Always be fair to the long term employees that helped make your company great. Continue to be unlike every one else.

    I worked at Ferno-Washington (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Love the co workers. They helped with my training . Very friendly family oriented place!

    Cons

    Where to begin? If your not in with the RIGHT crowd then you are nothing! Supervisors make fun of the workers. It doesn't matter if you work your behind off and volunteer hours . ALOT of drug using in this place including higher management! If a drug test was given they wouldn't have to worry about layoffs!

    Advice to Management

    Your there to manage! Look at your good workers!!!

    I have been working at Ferno-Washington full-time

    Pros

    If you want to join this company they will lure you with high salary but very negligible benefits and the so called bonuses donot exist. Use their paid relocation to move to Midwest and jump ship. Their new leadership is clueless and misleading

    Cons

    No consistent direction. Disrespectful leadership and no freedom to express your ideas. Fake development goals and assurances.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of asking HR to write positive reviews make changes to keep people. We have lost too many good people recently and the new ones are not the solution

    Pros

    Family owned medical device company with good vision and path forward

    Cons

    No guidance or systems in place until we set them. No voice customer from marketing only VP coaches and talks to us. Other managers take credit on my work.

    Move on
