        I have been working at Laitram full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        This company is family owned and family oriented. Many of our employees are married or related in some way, it is encouraged if they are the right fit. Laitram is so culturally diverse and I feel that really sets us apart from other major corporations. Laitram believes in promoting from within and encouraging growth within your department or within the company. I literally look forward to what is in store for...

        I have been working at Laitram full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        great atmosphere, lots of room for growth and advancement, amazing benefits (if you get hired), decent pay based on experience, leads willing to teach, good workforce camaraderie

        Cons

        as I said above, if you get hired on. The intern/temp positions seem to hang onto you indefinitely, in that given position, as long as possible . Still waiting to be hired on full-time. I've been here less than a year and I'm still an intern as most internships elsewhere don't exceed a 90-day probationary period. I hear they have an intern over in engineering who's been an intern for 2-years and he's apparently

        Advice to Management

        lessen the intern pool and begin screening interns/temps for employment as fast as possible rather than having so many interns/temps in a state of perpetual limbo waiting for hire

        Pros

        Every company has its issues but the pros clearly outweigh the cons at Laitram: 1. Great culture 2. Compensation system and incentives that awards individual performance 3. Benefits like no other in the area: a. Exceptional and affordable medical plan b. On-site health and fitness centers with nurse practitioners, registered dietitian and trainers c. Outstanding PTO (4/5 weeks) depending on tenure...

        Cons

        As with any company, few individual bad apples but for the most part the company tries to weed those folks out but not always when it should.
