    Pros

    Co Workers are fun and well educated. Yearly Profit Bonus, Safe Environment, Overtime if needed, Ability to use other trades for projects.

    Cons

    Hourly wages are slightly lower than average. Advancement is usually a Title since wages typically advance slightly below national average.

    Advice to Management

    Allow workers to advance within the company instead of hiring from the outside to fill another position. Many employees can do more and will help bring people up to their level. Win Win situation for Employer and Employee!

    I have been working at Lindsay Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working at Watertronics for just over 2 years now and am happy with my job. I have been treated well and plan to stay as long as possible.

    Cons

    Watertronics hires through temporary agencies and they wait a minimum of 3 months before they even consider you for direct hire.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes what matters most is people not money.

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

    Pros

    The people at the Lindsay location are down to earth, friendly, and actually care about your well being. Some of the finest people I have every worked with because they translate that attitude to the customers. The products produced have been some of the very best on the market thanks to the ideas of the original founders being carried out by present day employees.

    Cons

    Presidents and VPs will listen to your input but do little to nothing to address it if it involves change or improvement. Engineering is pretty much non-existent. It has become commonplace to contract an individual or firm to develop and build a product and then if a problem arises there is no one to easily contact to get a solution or changes enacted.

    Some of the manufacturing equipment is from the 1970s and 1980s. Certain machines have lost the ability to create uniform products due to their age and there is very little reinvestment into infrastructure at the Lindsay location.

    Advice to Management

    Reinvest in your company and your employees more frequently. Don't listen to employee suggestions for improvement and then do nothing to address or follow up with their concerns. Some of the original employees who had retired after 30-40 years with the company stated that working at Lindsay was "about the people." It's not about how rich you can get by playing ball with the CEO.

    I worked at Lindsay Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers on a non-managerial level have pride in their work.

    Cons

    Management in production occupations are not well trained. They use scare tactics like threats of write-ups when things on not going good on their end.

    Advice to Management

    Don't bring people from stable employment back-grounds to your company to turn around and lay them off. You ask why they are looking for a job when they leave your organization. By hiring to lay-off you create gaps in unemployment that in my case would not be there had I stayed where I left to come and work for you.

    Pros

    benefits package is good overall

    Cons

    Director level (+) positions are not posted internally and almost always are filled from outside. The Lindsay, NE location is in a town of 300 people and far removed from any major towns or cities. Training opportunities are few and far between.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and develop young talent
