    Interesting Employee involvement program, organized, short management structure, implementing lean. Implements a great introductiin into the company your first week.

    Cons

    As of right now i do not see anything as a con, but i am sure in the future their may be.

    I worked at HYDAC Technology full-time

    Pros

    Salaries competitive , can be a good learning experience. Product basically originated in Germany, but certain product lines have been rolled out to manufacturing locations in USA, creating opportunities.

    Cons

    Little chance for advancement and there is significant turnover of key personnel throughout the organization. Top management needs better judgment/strategic planning, particularly regarding people, as well as proper execution of any expansion efforts. Waste of talent and then re-training of replacements.

    Advice to Management

    Weak management in certain areas. Also, remember this is subsidiary of a German parent company. Far too many people leave the company at all levels, big problem. There is no succession planning. CEO is spread many ways with no delegation of responsibility. Basically a dictator with no checks and balances from parent.

    Pros

    Family environment with generally nice people

    Cons

    Management is unfair to employees and there's no way to move up in the company. Unrealistic timelines, too many projects per person.

    Pros

    Lots of friendly people. Good hours. Great work life balance. Good pay.

    Cons

    Your not allowed to switch shifts. Things in life change and if you cant continue to work that shift i think it shouldn't be out of the question for the company to try to do what they can to get you on another shift.

    I worked at HYDAC Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and the fellow employees are nice

    Cons

    The workload was way too much, and management did not want to see it. Favoritism on both sides of customer service is rampant, and only certain CSR’S get everything.
    Bosses seem to thrive on Gossip.

    Advice to Management

    Look at Management

    I have been working at HYDAC Technology full-time

    Pros

    Treated like a person not a number. Growing like crazy. Clean environment. Conditioned environment (A/C). Not talked down to. management has had talks with us as though they are trying to improve as much as possible.

    Cons

    Growth is so fast it is hard to keep up. Point system (late, miss day) is hard to understand. Other people say there are "clicks" but I see it as do your job and worry about yourself

    Advice to Management

    try and finish one project before starting another even though short handed
