    I worked at Phillips and Temro Industries full-time

    Pros

    You get a paid every two weeks. Annual raises were still given during declining business conditions. I worked with some great people there. Benefits have improved over the past two years.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment and corporate culture. Demanding management that can't be bothered with the facts or background on an issue before forming opinions and making decisions.

    Bonus plans are a joke- don't plan on ever getting one. Health care plans are very expensive. Limited opportunity for advancement. Most employees fantasize about leaving PTI and working for a real company.

    Customers are often demanding, unreasonable, and rude. Demand for products is in a long-term decline that is very unlikely to change. Sales targets are missed month after month and there doesn't appear to be a bottom.

    Advice to Management

    Start over with a new management team- this one can't be fixed.

    I worked at Phillips and Temro Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers were generally nice
    Most PPE is provided

    Cons

    CEO is a tyrant
    Expected everyone to drop everything in their lives to work 16 hour shifts, 7 days a week after being on 12 hour shifts 6 days a week for close to a year, making no exceptions for school, child care or elder care.

    Advice to Management

    Reassess your work lives. You are absolute terrible people to work for.

    Pros

    Not much, can't even count on your check.

    Cons

    Do not hire into this company without a recruiter. This company does not pay what you are worth, promises bones that never come. Demoralizing working conditions. Staff in MN have no clue of what they are doing, pass the buck. Their idea of a bones was a bag of groceries.

    Advice to Management

    Need to hire QUALITY people or fold.

    I worked at Phillips and Temro Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some really great people at PTI. However, they get lost in the mix.

    Cons

    Poor Attitudes. Inconsistent policies. High turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to your people. They do have good ideas on how to turn this company around. If you won't listen, you are part of the problem.

    I worked at Phillips and Temro Industries (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Small company meant upper management was readily available even to an intern. I was given several meaningful projects and very little busy work. Projects given to me were related to my interests and I was allowed to work on projects that were most interesting to me, given a list of several to choose from - definitely worth spending the summer there.

    Cons

    I'm having trouble thinking of any.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive attitude. Management this year was nothing like most of the negative reviews from several years ago.

    I have been working at Phillips and Temro Industries full-time

    Pros

    PTI is a multifaceted, challenging,manufacturing environment. My direct manager is a pleasure to work for and over all, colleagues are focused and seem to like our current environment. The company is stable, profitable and loyal to committed hard working employees. I receive reviews on time and have always received a raise.

    Cons

    PTI experienced some turn over in the past but the "feel" of the company has become more relaxed with the new CEO.

    Advice to Management

    With new product, new investments and more shared goals/objective with all employees it appears that Management is already listening to its employees advise.

    Pros

    Recent changes in management have resulted in a drive to improve the culture and overall employee moral. The people that work here are helpful and friendly; they are building an environment of teamwork.
    Busy season is in winter, summers are lighter and allow more time off with family.
    Pay scale is competitive.

    Cons

    Automotive supplier so expectations from customers are demanding.

    Pros

    very good pay, many good people, investing in new equipment

    Cons

    high turn over, limited resources, finger pointing

    Advice to Management

    evaluate projects based on return and accept only the large ones that are worth the time and effort

    Pros

    Some great innovative products that are environmentally friendly. Some of the long term employees are amazing people who make the work environment bearable.

    Cons

    Very high turnover rate. Low morale. No sense of team work within departments. Reactive instead of proactive.

    Advice to Management

    Employee morale needs to be improved. Environment needs to be open to supporting group efforts to obtain the big picture instead of individual silo departments working on there own islands. Work/home life balance needs to improve so talent can be drawn in and kept.
