    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 worked at Hypertherm as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really nice people. Management is down to earth. Manufacturing process line is extremely efficient.

    Cons

    Work was slow. Nobody gets fired, so people stay there for extremely long time.

    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

    Hypertherm does care about their associates. They have an excellent training program and associate development is important. They do great work giving back to the community.

    Cons

    The salaries are not great, they try and make this up with profit share which is not guaranteed. Senior Leaders are sometimes too tactical and don't always listen .

    Advice to Management

    Would like to see some changes as a result of the feedback to the management team. In the past there has not been a lot of action.

    I worked at Hypertherm full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Descent work atmosphere. Had the opportunity to work with some very talented people. Good mix of lean manufacturing practices and old school tricks to get the job done in a quick manner with good quality. Team approach to problem solving. Managers aren't afraid to ask what you really think about a process or a plan that they are considering moving forward with. Opportunity to receive training and certifications. Great insurance!

    Cons

    Lots of time spent in meetings. Definitely some growing pains as they are moving towards lean manufacturing processes. Supply chain headaches were a daily reality. Pay was ok, but not where it should be for the level of skill required to do the job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the family feel as much as you can. You don't need to have a meeting about a meeting for everything. Glad to see the 100% employee ownership move. Good luck!
