    I have been working at MetalTek full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    MetalTek is the sixth company I have worked for, including some big name manufacturers, and it is the best place I have been by far. It's a big small company. I feel that the individual can learn and contribute at whatever level he/she wants to. The cultural growth initiative, called "Delivering More Than Metal" is really a unique way to recognize fellow workers when they do things that promote MetalTek as a place to grow happy and engaged employees, and improve the customer experience; I have never seen anything like it. We have a lot of new people and it's fun to watch them grow and contribute. They are our future.

    Cons

    I don't know that it's a "con" per se, but we make a lot of difficult parts for demanding (and interesting) applications. We are not always able to service and deliver to those customers as well as we would like to. That can be a little frustrating. We work hard on improving that performance, but being a custom job shop, there are no easy solutions.

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

    Pros

    Good employee benefits. Employees are helpful and easy to work with. Safety is important and emphasized.

    Cons

    Senior Management was weak. Senior management got in the way more than they helped.

    Advice to Management

    The branch shut down, so I don't know what advice to give as the management is no longer employed there.

    Pros

    Strong committment to customer satisfaction and excellence in achieving continuous improvement in process and execution of related efforts.

    Would encourage more R&D in high tech net shape and machining/weld assemblies.

    Advice to Management

    Make the leap to acheive the most valuable fruits-not just the low hanging-they are closest to rot.

    I worked at MetalTek full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    We worked as a team. and had daily meetings about work load and how to achieve our monthly goals

    Cons

    If you get injured or get sick don't expect to keep your job they don't care about doctors notes or fmla

    Advice to Management

    you will never get good workers when you treat people like a resource. something to harvest and use, management sure knows how to tick off their employees and they keep hitting that button as they threaten termination when you can't hit their unreasonable rates.
