    I worked at Hardinge full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most Co-workers are friendly. Machines are well kept.

    Cons

    Management show a lot of favortism. A lot of back stabbing from bosses friends. 2 raises in ten years. Pay cut and management gets raises. Was sexual harassed. To to bad and to look for another job. Was walked out door when gave notice. Did not pay me my 4 weeks vacation l had earned.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the favortist Treat people as equal. Stop lining your deep pockets. Bosses listen to there friends who are screwing over the rest of the worker's.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Hard working people that want to do good work.
    The company has been punished by a changing world economy but they do continue to move forward.

    Cons

    Management struggles to move the company forward. They lack vision and direction. They need to trust and invest n their people. The world has changed and it feels like they have not.

    Advice to Management

    Engage with outside agencies and services to benchmark against other similar companies. A Gartner subscription could go a long way there.

    Pros

    My co-workers are very helpful and supportive. Copious amounts of assistance are offered whenever it is needed. Compensation is very competitive.

    Cons

    Interdepartmental communication is sometimes lacking, causing embarrassing situations in the field. The markups on spare parts are not even remotely competitive on items that can be bought from other vendors.

    Advice to Management

    Hardinge should improve their execution of core competencies before they branch out further. Get a better handle on the foreign manufacturing activities, let the home office engineers do more work so they understand the machines more thoroughly. We should never have to "wait for an answer from Taiwan". Ludicrous.
