    I have been working at Franklin Electric full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work is rewarding and challenging.

    Cons

    Employees are way overworked across the board and if you are in the manufacturing sector expect to be way underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Better value your employees and delegate responsibilities better.

    I have been working at Franklin Electric full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good culture; solid IT leadership; good IT operational processes. Great coworkers, active efforts to have fun and build up the team. IT management is very transparent and they show genuine appreciation to their people. They mean it when they say, "...my door is always open."

    Cons

    While a leader in their industry, it's still something of a niche market they play in. Since the company includes 24x7/follow-the-sun manufacturing, aspects unique to that industry impact IT operations. However, those impacts aren't terribly different from other organizations that have a global presence.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue efforts of showing appreciation to staff. This goes a long way in career satisfaction and encourages everyone to go the extra mile.

    I have been working at Franklin Electric part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked at Franklin Electric for over a year and a half, and my opinion is quite high. They treat their workers with great respect form what I have seen and are very understanding that we have lives outside of work. Franklin Electric is a rather conservative company to when it comes to taking risk, which makes me comfortable about a long term future with the company.

    Cons

    Pay as an intern is higher elsewhere, however it certainly isn't all about the money.

    I have been working at Franklin Electric full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I started over 5 years ago. Work is not hard and workers are very friendly. Always work to do so you very rarely get sent home

    Cons

    Management and office don't seem to care about employees. Raises don't match cost of living. Turn over rate is extremely high.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees a little more they are out there doing the work. They know better then some office person who has never done job
