    I have been working at Freudenberg Sealing Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The bar for excellence is very high - you will not find people here who are fine with "good enough." Also, the sky is the limit for people who want to do a great job; growth opportunities are constantly made available to employees. Work/life balance is great, too.

    Cons

    Every company has its challenges, and FNST is no exception. But, there are no glaring weaknesses or downsides to working here, as far as I am concerned. This is the best company I have worked for in my career.

    Pros

    Its a great place to work the pay is suitable for a factory employee money isn't terrible but could always be better

    Cons

    cons: almost to many to list... the plant manager isn't real smart when it comes to managing the employees out on the floor.. I don't think this company reviewed his resume before they hired him...

    Advice to Management

    check on your management like you do regular employees

    Pros

    Quality is very important and taken very seriously. You get a 20 min paid lunch, Good working hours, pretty laid back environment

    Cons

    No training matrix, Supervisors aren't helpful, HR takes sides with certain employees instead of looking at facts. To much turn over in employees without proper training.

    Advice to Management

    More training done with new employees

    I have been working at Freudenberg Sealing Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stability, lots of chances for overtime, some good management, but not many. Lots of great people work in the lower ranks. Good benefits, holidays off with pay, dental, vision, vacation. Double time on Sunday.

    Cons

    Overtime is also a con. Most lines work mandatory 7 days a week. Management thinks of you as no more than a number that can be replaced. Management dose something wrong? Forget HR, they'll walk you right out the door. Seen it too many times.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at your plant management. Not just what they tell you, actually look, ask employees away from management. Respect for the person is nonexistent. Despite what your principals say. Nobody in my plant trust management, we have been taken advantage of to may times. We had one BCL stick up for us. First time he did he was fired on the spot. Need more support for the hourly employee.

    Pros

    I cant really think of any pros other than they gave free coffee and soda. That's it.

    Cons

    The employees are very rude. There is no room for anyone that only speaks english, They say they will train you but they just throw you in and dont help you. The employees only know how to do one thing and do not want to be bothered.

    Advice to Management

    Come out of your offices and see what is going on, Check your documentation as much of it has been falsely altered.
