    Current Employee - Electronic Technician in Louisville, KY

    I have been working at IRD Balancing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mostly easy paced & a laid back atmosphere. People are nice. Understanding about call in's or taking off. Patience in training & in mistakes.

    Cons

    Lack of needed parts in a timely fashion to fabricate by due dates. Pay raises are few and far between usually very small amounts if any.

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate a better parts system & inventory.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at IRD Balancing full-time

    Pros

    Some of the people there are really wonderful, but not so much the management

    Cons

    Management is uninterested in putting money back into the product or the building. There is black mold in the office building. Management knows, doesn't care. The CLT product doesn't function a third of the time, leading to costly repairs and pissed off customers. Management knows, doesn't care.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your company or it will go under.

    I worked at IRD Balancing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay check never bounced. Non-management co-workers who were in same boat were easy to get along with.

    Cons

    HR was very misleading (or out right lied) about everything. Benefits package changed 3 times in 1 year always for the worse. They were not truthful about raises despite good employee work assment and reviews. Never did get to work the schedule I was hired in on, mandatory o.t. It was easy to find out why their entire staff quit all at once on the same day. Full of promises but about as honest as a politician.

    Advice to Management

    Get on the same page as everyone else. Don't just have a meeting and make promises and do nothing. If this can't be done start by firing yourselves and let the company start over.

    Pros

    Small company atmopshere in a great city with a well known and respected product line. Outward thinking.

    Cons

    Resources and management structure is too limited to grow appropriately and to invest in new products. Most products are old and out of date or are private labelled from other sources. No money to invest in new product dvelopment. Poor benefits due to being so small. Very unstable work environment - high turnover and very few people with more than 5 years experience. Almost no sales staff to support customers.

    Advice to Management

    Develop stronger customer focus, add direct sales, improve employee benefits and retention.
