    Cons

    Really wouldn't say there are any cons worth mentioning. As you continue to grow keep added good people so resources are available to the guys in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. As you continue to grow don't loss the awesome culture and remember as you do now, that the Employees are always your best investment.

    Pros

    Strong culture with core values and a mission that employees buy into. The company has many employee programs which build camaraderie and create a team environment, not only for employees but also their families. The leadership has built solid strategies for the future and like to get input from all levels before making decisions.

    Cons

    The company rewards employees who have demonstrated competency and built trust over time. This means rapid advancement might be more difficult.

    I have been working at Kurt J. Lesker Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Environmentally conscious and have events throughout the year for your health and community service events. Vacation time is ok and benefits are like anywhere else.

    Cons

    The pay sucks and there are no yearly raises. You can go years without a raise and if you do get a raise, its minimal. They throw more and more work on you with no extra compensation. There are also no types of bonuses. The company has communication meetings with the employees and talk about how many millions the company made and you'll get a "keep up the good work" and a donut. Their way of doing things is old... school so, if you come in with fresh new ideas, it will be acknowledged but never applied. "It's how it's always been done."

    Pros

    Overall a very welcoming and pleasant work environment; even the president and senior management knew my name from day one and are open for constant conversations and suggestions. If you put in the time and effort they take the time to take care of you. Knowledgeable colleagues, Room to expand into new roles and responsibilities should you desire. The president and upper management have a real vision for the... company that I'm excited to be a part of.

    Cons

    Some lower level positioned staff stuck in their ways. Older software systems in place, but will be upgrading shortly so that will turn around quick.
