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

    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.

    "Silos in operation...."

    Pros

    Decent salary.
    Decent management attitude toward work/life balance.
    Nice area.

    Cons

    Departments/sections are segregated in attitude and cooperation. Non-departmental managers try to dictate to associates in other departments.
    Work proceeds in silos, and attempts to get necessary information can be seen as intrusive.
    Quite a bit of "territorialness" in managers, as in most US corporations, unfortunately.
    Engineers haughty toward non-engineers doing technical work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop concentrating on community happiness, and work toward improving associate happiness. Make promotion opportunities more transparent, in terms of not having to be politically connected to someone, or in general a suck-up.

    Pros

    associate development and well being
    giving back to society through community service, staying green and efficient
    makes great products

    Cons

    Lots of reports, planning and meeting so leaving little time to actually "work"
    Trying to be efficient so lots of work loaded on every individual which can get stressful

    Advice to Management

    Had great products and service support for the customers that really helps the company lead the market in plasma cutting.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Community oriented
    Career mobility if you play your cards right; very political

    Cons

    Weak pay and very high expectations

    Advice to Management

    Promotions dont seem to be based on competency and talent but on who you know.
