    I worked at Frazier Industrial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good for welders, consistent work.
    Excellent benefits, reasonable pay. The office staff in Idaho Falls is a great group of people. Serious employees can advance.

    Frazier is very good at what they do.

    Cons

    Moderate turnover from higher paying welding jobs. Absolutely no work-life balance or flex-time.

    Female employee wages are capped after a few years.

    Senior management has a very old school, "Don't play in my sandbox," attitude and "Good Old Boys" network between the various departments. Very little inter-department collaboration or work groups. Similarly, Frazier is slow to adopt new technology. Most communication is still done over the phone or email. Lengthy reports have no automation -- they don't even use pivot tables.

    Although they have painfully begun implementing an IT upgrade and new production software, Frazier has no cloud-based structure, apps, etc. Servers are used simply as repositories for files.

    Some departments horde information as a means of control, while at the same time intentionally leave some employees out of communication. Very disengaging.

    As a gay man, although I was never disrespected, I also never felt fully accepted. No diversity and inclusion or non-discrimination policies. Human Resources needs to research and update their policies to keep competitive.

    Frazier needs an effective leader and visionary to lead them forward.

    Advice to Management

    Frazier is on top of the market because it is and has been the industry leader -- not because it is exceptionally well managed, marketed, etc. There haven’t been any innovations in the last 10 years.

    The next 5 - 15 years will make or break Frazier. With radical changes coming to manufacturing (additive manufacturing), along with increasingly cheap and reliable robotic labor -- Frazier is currently lagging and ready to be surpassed if a strategic plan isn't created and acted on soon.

    Similarly, Frazier's upper management workforce is AGING. Some department directors just simply need to retire. Significantly new blood needs to be brought in to keep Frazier competitive. Frazier needs to adopt newer, progressive policies to attract talent, as well as pay employees slightly more.

    Frazier also needs to update both its management organization, attitudes about collaboration, address its reluctance to update technology, and hire younger employees.

    Pros

    I appreciate you taking time out of your day to criticize what you find to be negative features of the company, but feel some clarification is due.
    1) wages. I'm not sure which location you worked at but I'm assuming the Idaho Falls branch based on the wages you described. Yes, EVERYONE starts at 13, whether a welder or a janitor. However, if you show that you're worth more it is possible to be hired on at a higher rate, that's up to the shop manager. The 6 month wait is company standard, while wages are not. At least not 100%.
    2) attendance. In my opinion the attendance policy is far tooff lax. It's based on a point system. If you miss less than 2 hours it's 1 point. A full day is three point. If you were to miss the following day it would not accumulate 3 more point, a third consecutive days, however, would. Consequences are acquired like a ladder. 6 points moves you up 1 rung, 6 months moves you down. Theread are 5 "rungs" 1)verbal 2)second verbal 3)written warning 4) 3 day suspension 5) 5 day suspension pending termination. In other words, you can be an hour late every day for a month and on the last day you might get fired. As far as family is concerned, the allow leave for family emergencies but you have to show some evidence of the emergency if at all possible. There are way to many people that take advantage of it aND would leave half way through a shift because their best friends dog ("my sister") died. Yes that really happened.

    P.s. if you can't take it just know, you'll love it at McDonalds.

    Cons

    They don't like people who aren't willing to work. Not management, other people on the shop floor. Of you don't come in willing to work, the other employees will run you off because you will mess with their monthly bonus.

    Yes I said bonus, that goes in the cons right?

    Advice to Management

    Stop bringing in guys from the temp agency. Half of them can't even read a tape and most of them don't know what hard work is. Plus they leave falsifying bad reveiws on the web

    Pros

    The people were great and friendly; picnics, gatherings, and social for a "family" feel. The work load is consistent, with the necessary procedures for a fine running organization.

    Cons

    As with any company, public or private, there are always issues, it is whether those issues are important to you or not

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to the Management of the company, I was not hired for my Executive Management Opinions

    "Freedom and Frustration"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Freedom! The freedom to pick the ball up and run with it whether it is a new product line, new approach, or new customer anywhere around the world. The company is filled with assertive people who work very hard and have a tremendous amount of talent. They always rise to the challenge presented with hard work and creative ideas. This is a sales oriented company with a very strong supporting staff. The company has set up a large network of manufacturing locations providing a flex manufacturing network capable of responding to market needs anywhere around the world with out taking away from our core base of customers or orders.

    Cons

    In the independent full freedom environment there is a lack of direction or decision by upper management. The management style has been referred to as a gladiator style. The last idea standing must be a good idea. So you may have what you preceive as a good idea or direction, but one person in upper management doesn't get on board, then the idea will sink. Upper management will not pick or support an approach, you have to champion the idea and get everyone on board. At times this can be very frustrating and can lead to a "why bother" attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Freedom and independence can breed success, but it does need guidance and decision making, which management avoids.

    I worked at Frazier Industrial full-time

    Pros

    Best product in the industry. Despite themselves, they manage to sell and build a lot of rack and have 25% of a niche industry.

    Cons

    Very reactionary, with no proactive plans for growth. Employees are treated with borderline contempt; no HR policies and decisions for raises or profit sharing are apparently arbitrary. In the many years I was there, never once told what the company goal is and what is expected of me.

    Advice to Management

    Make a plan and share your expectations for reaching the company's goal.
