    I have been working at NIBCO

    Pros

    Safety conscious, decent pay, good benefits. Steady work with no slow down in sight.

    Cons

    Mgmt picks and chooses who they overload with work and who can do whatever they want to do and when they do it. HR is not very friendly but is put into a power position to make decisions they do not understand. Very close minded on suggested changes.

    I worked at NIBCO full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Year around work if you show up

    Cons

    Implosion coming soon! Lack of direction, failure to produce leaders from within. Managers and temps; even the newly hired leave and are discouraged quickly by the current leaders. No real vision for the future. These people are happy to live in the past. Band aid methodology that results in the failures now happening. Complete lack of listening to improve.

    I worked at NIBCO

    Pros

    Good benefits and family oriented. Long time employer. Training is good. Good place to work.

    Cons

    Goshen allows ethnic female employee to stalk in and outside plant the married male employees to gain something for herself, and gets her ethnic women friends at plant to cause problems for other employees and uncomfortable environment. HR has no control over her and has let it continue for years.
