    Pros

    We still have jobs for the moment

    Cons

    Overwhelmed and under paid no clear direction on operating as a new purchased company and input from existing staff ignored or dismissed.

    Advice to Management

    Do your homework upfront when purchasing companies. Don't take out your frustration on the staff of new companies because you don't know what's going on and how to fix it.

    Pros

    Rotational program gives great experience in different areas of the company, but interns not in that rotation can be stuck with boring, mundane tasks. Pay decently well.

    Cons

    Generally an older generation of people there, who openly voice their negative opinions about the place. Supposedly the owners of the company, filtration group, cause the most harm to the company.

    I have been working at Filtration Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a paycheck, you can get some basic office training, and the office has air conditioning. The vending machines usually work

    Cons

    No opportunities for advancement, upper management doesn't manage, middle management passes they're work into subordinates, and lower level employees have a poor turnover. 2 years without a raise but still qualified to train my superiors and coworkers. Clearly my skills are wasted here

    Advice to Management

    Manage your company not just your money. Reward loyalty. 3 years at a company should be appreciated, especially when most employees don't last for six months.

    Pros

    Great people, good product. A pleasure to go in to work and always have a challenge ahead of you.

    Cons

    Too many people passing the buck, not wanting to do the work or accept responsibility

    Advice to Management

    A good group of core people that make things happen. Others need to learn from this group which would make it a much pleasurable environment to be in.

    I have been working at Filtration Group full-time

    Pros

    Stress-free and laid back company. Good benefits and taking vacation or sick days isn't an issue at all. The company welcomes thinking outside the box; just as long as it fixes the problem. Friendly work environment and the people are really nice. Amongst the hourly salary group, you have 15+ yrs of experience easily for such a fairly large facility.

    Cons

    Directly from an executives mouth, "This is a flat company: Do not expect to grow/develop." There is no career growth here. Turn-over in salary positions is high b/c of this. Morale is down across ALL departments. A lot of positions magically get created to bump certain people's pay nicely aka the buddy system only to be dissolved and unavailable for others to move into only after 2-3 years; just ask during your interview or if you're hired how long certain positions have been around. It's sadly comical. A lot of ppl recognize this game. This is not a performance driven company it's all about who you know and if you fit a profile. HR plays a larger role than your direct manager in your qualifications for a raise. A spending freeze has been in effect most of 2015; after new owners were brought in. No one knows if this will change in 2016- meaning fair raises and promotions weren't given and capital expense projects were hardly approved because cashflow a huge push. The bonus structure was changed from 50/50 to .333/.333/.333, making it harder for ppl to get the max or close to the max bonus. A 50+ year old company and very disorganized and unorthodox methodologies.

    Advice to Management

    Create REAL career paths for hourly and salary; this will slow the bleeding aka high turnover rate. Develop your ppl (i.e. programs,.etc.); don't brag about an educational system, but don't use it; this will help morale and give ppl a challenge and sense of accomplishment... I know, i know, you're only thinking of the six sigma program that less than 10% of those who actually go through it even apply. Understand that career longevity in a company doesn't make you a great manager; one manager (I won't say their name) is the reason a particular department will lose 1/2 their members in 2016-2017 due to their horrible management style.

    Climate controlled warehouse, good hours.

    Cons

    This company has no loyalty to it's employees but expects it in return. They do not value their workers.

    Pros

    Pay was ok. Most of the people were ok, not great. Good sales team. They should find new jobs.

    Cons

    The president of the plant in Valley Park is the single worst manager I have ever had. He's an egotist and thinks he's smarter than everyone around him.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new president

    I worked at Filtration Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a great facility located right off the highway. Able to manufacture and ship product to any region at minimal cost. A very strategic location and venture.

    Cons

    Low pay for the for "skilled" work expected will yield low quality workers. The high turnover rate and lack of oversight in all areas of management. I often found myself training my boss. How does that work? And not just "getting up to speed".

    Advice to Management

    Invest in a skilled workforce. Find workers that can crack their own whips. And train the leads and managers you have before you set them loose on the work floor. You should never expect hourly workers to train and "catch up" their superiors. It truly show's the companies lack of insight when it comes to respect for the individual and "corporate culture".
