    Pros

    Great Strong Private Company, Good Benefits

    Cons

    Training took a nose dive several years back getting rid of the training coordinator position

    Advice to Management

    Engineering Managers do not know how to manage production operators. Pay is low for operators at Cottage Grove East for the work they do compared to other industries

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Hydrite full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Upward mobility, company often promotes.

    Cons

    Meeting customer demands #1 priority - this is perpetuated from regional managers down. Active in ignoring unsafe conditions/pressures to meet customer demands at any costs. Plant maintenance budgets inadequate. Safety culture is inadequate and antiquated. Business grows to fast for own good - outpaces its resources & leans on people and short cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Hire talent from outside at top level positions. This company does not know what good looks like from a manufacturing perspective.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are top notch. Retirement plan is crazy !

    Cons

    Enviornment is hostile to employees. Management makes sure you understand that you are on thin ice and replaceable. Dangerous spills have been swept under a rug and not reported to corporate. Holidays are taken away with little notice. Shifts are changed with little notice.

    Advice to Management

    Check your ego at the door. Employees all have the same goal to make the company successful. Try building them up to succeed, not break them down.
