    I have been working at Hypertherm full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    profit sharing is definitely the primary benefit of working at Hypertherm. The work environment is very safe and they have a strong culture.

    Cons

    There is a lot of gossip and a very negative attitude on the production floor. Can't speak of the office side of the business but be ready to work with some very unprofessional and immature people.

    I have been working at Hypertherm full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Ownership culture, shared rewards include profit sharing and HSOP, strong management team, on-site medical office, on-site fitness, focus on wellness (physical, mental, financial), heavily involved in the community (32 hours paid community service time), culture of continuous improvement, educational support, generous paid time off, focus on team based solutions, lean and green. I have a great leader too; he has a direct impact on my engagement and I work hard for him and for the company.

    Cons

    Your experience and satisfaction can depend heavily on your area, team, and leader. Some areas have better work/life balance than others. I wish there were more opportunities to telecommute so that I could move out of the area but stay with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Aim higher- strengthen leaders to inspire! Inspired Associates will get us where we want to go; don't accept lack of engagement and don't settle for simply engaged- aspire to inspire!! Keep up the good communication- Evan's humor during company meeting makes him relatable and credible; people want to follow him. Continue to seek excellence and be good leaders, but spend some time with other teams. How cool would it be to have members of management spend a couple of hours shadowing in teams outside of their focus so that they can appreciate what it takes to do what we do?

    Pros

    Benefits are better than most. Profit sharing is a definite plus. Laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    Politics, backstabbing and the boys club.

    Advice to Management

    Focus a little more on the associates on the floor and less in the offices.

    Pros

    Culture, No lay off policy, good benefits, free fitness classes w/ onsite gym, paid community service opportunities, pay is decent, year end profit sharing

    Cons

    Pay could be better for some positions they use the profit sharing and benefits as total rewards instead of separating the two and addressing it.

    Advice to Management

    None - they do an excellent job and in weak areas they recognize it and try to improve

    It was a green friendly company to work for. very interested in the employee welfare. Strong commitment to enviormental issues.

    Cons

    Company spent too much time prying into the personal business of employees. backstabbing environment. this is all I can think of.

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    ESOP, Profit-sharing and stock are great benefits for associates.

    Cons

    Management and leadership don't have a good relationship with the associates. They are "all business" and don't seem to realize the impact this message has to the associates.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more engaged with the associates. There is a definite disconnect and the management team doesn't seem to realize it.

    Pros

    This company truly cares about it's associate-owners, and the community.

    Cons

    None really. Perhaps I would say there are limited office locations, but that is not a criticism.

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

    Pros

    Hypertherm really focuses on the Associate (employee is a forbidden word) and takes the associate perspective into most, if not all, decisions. The no layoff policy is testament to the fact that they value their responsibility more than most companies. Had I not moved from the area I would still consider it a privilege to work there.

    Great people - especially in the regional offices

    Cons

    Decision making can be very slow and tedious; sometimes the obvious answers don't get acted on quick enough.

    No opportunity to work remote (unless in sales).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, but don't let tradition dictate every decision. Don't let politics get in the way of making decisions and getting things done.
