      Great for Short Term but Improvements are Needed for Long Term Growth

      Pros

      There’s a lot of opportunities to learn, develop skills, and gain experience quickly. Working here is perfect for building your resume. High turnover. If you stay with the company for a few years and outlast everyone who leaves, there’s a high probability that you’ll get the chance to manage a team. You get a lot of responsibility quickly.

      Cons

      Husco has grown rapidly over the last decade but doesn’t necessarily have the right processes or organization to continue that growth. The culture is not what’s advertised by recruiters. Ego drives a lot of projects and gets in the way of teamwork. There’s a “this is how we’ve always done it” attitude from Management and HR. Your experience will vary from department to department or even manager to manager. Engineering usually has more of a work-life balance compared to Operations. High turnover. It can be difficult having to take over a project and start from scratch when someone leaves. The knowledge is lost when someone transitions. It’s rare to see someone who’s been at Husco for more than 5 years who isn’t in a higher management position. Top heavy in terms of corporate structure. Too many managers and not enough employees. People who have been there the longest get management positions regardless of whether or not they would be a good leader. Cost seems to be the only metric that matters to Management which can be frustrating. COVID19 response. Furloughs for 4 weeks and employees were laid off. HR didn’t do their due diligence and read the vaccine eligibility requirements. We could have been vaccinated months earlier. Coworkers won’t do the bare minimum to keep you safe. They wouldn’t care if you died so long as they could go out to dinner in Waukesha without a mask. There are several coworkers, managers, and directors that are against safety measures and encourage getting together outside of work without being socially distant.

      Pulse survey? Hmmmm

      Pros

      The most toxic workplace there ever was

      Cons

      "hey fill out this pulse survey so we can understand what you're feedback is and then we'll meet to discuss the results"........."oh never mind the results weren't all positive so we'll just ignore the feedback and pretend like the survey didn't happen." This company is a joke. Below average pay, yet they expect you to work like you're getting paid double. The president surely has enough money to buy a new $100K car every few years.

      Thank you for sharing your feedback. It has been almost a year since our last pulse survey so I am unsure if we are thinking about the same thing. We went through all feedback that was provided, both negative and positive. If you felt that wasn't the case, I wish you would have brought that up while you were still with the company. I'm glad you have found a better opportunity that aligns with your outlook. Best of luck!

      Pros

      Good benefits, pay, and culture. Very fast paced and are rewarded for hard work, not for people who just want to stay still. Plenty of opportunities to learn including in-house classes for hydraulic, electronic, and robotic systems. Plenty of work to go around.

      Cons

      Days can be tough and deadlines can be tight so be prepared to work. Again not a job for people who are happy doing mindless work. A drive to keep learning would be valued at HUSCO.

      Pros

      Husco allows employees the opportunity to maintain a great work life balance. The culture at Husco is also very positive and they hire a lot of young engineers.

      Cons

      When engineers leave, those left are usually left to pick up the workload and sometimes this workload doesn’t end up going away.
