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

    Pros

    Plant supervision cares about us, good benefits. Opportunities for people that want to grow and work hard, recognition given for hard work.

    Cons

    Equipment issues, but has gotten much better in the last several months. Difficult to work with some new associates, not everyone cares how the company performs.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay connected with the floor.

    I have been working at Oatey full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very awesome company to work for. Seems that their #1 asset is their employees. Hey are very careful to make sure they hire best in class. The focus is on character, values, integrity. The technical stuf. They will teach you. Truly family-like setting. Regardless of the department, people will rush to help. A lot of opportunity for advancement, "the sky is the limit". Top management (allCOO,CEO,CFO, etc and vices) are very "down to earth" people. Most of the time the title is not even noticeable during interactions.

    Cons

    Can't think of any. Hope none will come up in the future

    Advice to Management

    God bless you, keep growing. Congrats on 100 yrs in business.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good working environment, ability to advance, ethical work practices, excellent product line, good co-workers

    Cons

    Heavy work load due to cross functional departments.

    Advice to Management

    Assess actual work performed within the salary associates. Cross functional duties should be limited. Too much expected.

    I have been working at Oatey (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is competitive. Great work environment with good people that are always willing to help you succeed. Oatey always strives to live up to its values and mission

    Cons

    The company is growing and has tailored many opportunities to the newer, younger workforce. However, there are limited opportunities for advancement for seasoned veterans.

    Advice to Management

    It's good to see that growth is bringing in young talent in the company and providing opportunities for them to grow. But don't forget about the talented contributors that helped to provide the foundation for the companies growth.

    Pros

    Floor and Production staff are great to be around

    Cons

    Office Management and Plant Manager

    Advice to Management

    Start looking at the office management as to why so many good production staff and leaders are leaving.

    Pros

    Awesome associates to work with, good HR related issues handled fast, good starting pay to salaried and hourly associates. There is always jobs open for either department/shift change or advancement.

    Cons

    Is not up front on hours of work. We are a 4-10 hour shifts, and was told rarely Fridays/Saturdays. Can only count a few times when we had actual 4 day work week. Training and scheduling for training does not exist for new associates. Have continuous issues with office personal feel they have the need to change and supervise areas that do not involve them.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to setup actual training methods/documents for new management and team leads. We have had so much management and team lead turnover, it has been a revolving door. Seems every month there is a new supervisor and team leads in every area of the plant.

    Joined the company less than a year ago. I work in R&D and love the people I work with and appreciate our management openness.

    We can use more help. There are lots to do and wish we can have more people

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing forward
