    I worked at Halkey-Roberts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Gaining experience was the only valuable part of my employment after that leave. Got as far as I could before the I could find a better place to work so thanks for that.

    Cons

    The managers are pigs. Then to harass any young girl that work there.The higher ups tend to turn a blind eye to the harassment. Limited room to grow. Don't wast your time. Left a week after I got a raise. Place sucks. Don't work here if you're a girl.

    Advice to Management

    Stop caring about numbers and stock and maybe workers will stay more then a month. Stop covering the dogs that work there and maybe people will stop quitting over being harass.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, busy and a great industry.

    Cons

    No room for growth. Management been around for decades therefore no room for change, they are intimidated by young, educated,talented employees. Good ol boys and girls club.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to change and stop taking an agressive approach toward the change. Get talented employees to work for the organization.

    Pros

    Very bright executive management with Engineering, legal and business and professional experience. Open to new opportunities and very customer-centric.

    Cons

    Risk averse, and tend to shy-away from high-longterm gain programs and acquisitions if there is any possibility of mortgaging short-term returns. Vision for the future of the corporation can be somewhat muddled at times.

    I have been working at Halkey-Roberts full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay is LOW in comparison to the rest of the medical device world and while management professes to really care about its "#1 Asset, The Employees" with the occasional cheap cook out they don't actually show that they care. For a company that has stock that is trading at well over $300 a share they pay their rank & file workers like a 3rd World sweat shop in comparison to other medical device companies in the U.S.

    Cons

    Aloof, insincere, senior management.
    Mid-level managers focused only on their annual bonus.
    LOW pay, average to below average benefits touted as "wonderful"

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking you know what is REALLY going on without coming down from the 2nd floor once a month.

    I worked at Halkey-Roberts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck is all I can say about this place. Temp job thru randstand. No medical or dental not til after a certain amount of time.

    Cons

    This place is the pits. They want you running around like a chicken with its head cut off for the meager amount of 8 bucks an hour. If you are a woman, wear baggy clothing so you won't get side ways glances from the opposite sex.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to give here. This company will always have a high turn over rate because they don't know how to treat their workers.
