    I worked at Metaldyne (More than a year)

    Pros

    People were friendly and the job was decent with good pay and benefits. I only left the company to go back to college for another class.

    Cons

    The environment is crowded, greasy, oily and smelled. There was never any room to put product away. FIFO didn't exsist there because of this problem.

    Advice to Management

    Organization is key


  5. "Great people but company went downhill with new leadership."

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    People I worked with and the culture before the merger. There used to be a strong sense of commitment to organizational success and each other but that has diminished since the merger, going public and leadership changes.

    Cons

    Only focused on short-term financials, no long-term perspective or strategy. Basic leadership skills are lacking and there is no real focus on employee development, growth and well-being.

    Former Employee - CNC Operator in Fremont, IN

    Pros

    The pay is great, good starting wage, great benefits, vacation time, Union, the Supervisors were great, easy to get along with,

    Cons

    Repetition is terrible, Excessive overtime, some ten an twelve hour days, as well as working Saturday and Sunday every weekend

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people so a person can have a more balanced home / work life. People get burned out working all the time.

    I have been working at Metaldyne full-time

    Pros

    Company is relatively flexible, insurance benefits are good and time off is generous. Most coworkers are friendly and nice.

    Cons

    No room for growth or advancement. Management gives the impression they don't really care about the employees. A lot of the managers have little to no training and most don't really know how to manage or lead. Communication is also very poor. Little to no help or support from human resources.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. Look for ways to promote from within. Send managers to training, give them tools to successfully lead.

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

    Pros

    The pay was decent and my co workers were cool, not much else i liked about the company. Other than that it stinks!

    Cons

    If you are in need of medical attention (life or death situation) such was mine, they don't care and will fire you unethically!

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue and stick up for your employees!!

    Pros

    The least politics I've ever seen in a workplace, everyone worries about themselves. Also the company is trending up. Good.

    Cons

    Only real complaint was there was no sense of comradely among teams and co workers. Often times you would go days without having a normal conversation with other people.

    Advice to Management

    Group teams together better in the office and promote more fun activities
