    Pros

    The people, the benefits, the atmosphere. The company cares about its employees.

    Cons

    At times there are employees who don't buy into the corporate philosophy and since teamwork is important, it makes things harder. But over time I see those filtering out and the company as q whole is great. Every place will have ups and downs, but there are a whole more ups here.

    Pros

    Lots of HR benefits and perks.

    Cons

    Slow to grow. They want to be a multi million dollar company and have the drive do do so, but the sales don't support the infrastructure investment to make it happen.

    There is a reason people stay as long as they do...

    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 and starts from day 1 d. No cost STD (100% salary for 6 months), LTD and life insurance

    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.

    Great culture with bad managers that don't practice what they preach

    Pros

    The company overall is great to work for with fair compensation for expected employee output. You join a family run company where you will meet a number of great co-workers that really work hard.

    Cons

    Advancement was almost impossible with the flat management style in place and training is non-existent. Most people are still doing the same job they started doing five years ago. Favoritism, manager bullying and isolation has ultimately lead to good people leaving for other opportunities.

    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 me each day!

    Cons

    I honestly have no cons!
