  1. "I have the amazing opportunity to contribute to an amazing company"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - USA/Mexico Software Manager in Carlisle, PA
    Current Employee - USA/Mexico Software Manager in Carlisle, PA
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Pyrotek full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have ideas and I have the opportunity to see those ideas become a reality.

    Cons

    nothing that comes to mind. If anything it would be politics, but even that is minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing...giving your staff the freedom to think and be creative in business solutions.

    I worked at Pyrotek full-time

    Pros

    Employees get along well. There are some clicks that don't get along with others. Benefits are ok.

    Cons

    Older employees need to make way for improvements. It's not 1980's anymore. Old men in Spokane warehouse needs to retire before he get sexual harassment charges against him. Management needs to do there job and manage there employees. Everyone wants to be a boss there.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your bicycles and manage! Don't let other try and do your job because you don't care. Do your job before we all lose ours because your not doing yours. Treat your employees like your biggest customer and people will stay longer.

    I worked at Pyrotek (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people were great to work with and there was always something different to do.
    The working hours were ideal and there was room for advancement.

    Cons

    The working environment was hot and filthy. The maintenance director didn't seem to know what he was doing and he was not very organized.

    Advice to Management

    Make better decisions regarding tasks and projects. Give better raises and develop better communications with the employees. Make improvements and upgrades to the facility.

    Pros

    Pay was decent for the position. Benefits are acceptable. Facility is beautiful.

    Cons

    Middle management is poor and untrained. Upper management is made aware and does nothing due to favoritism. Goals, targets and deadlines are not respected and road blocks make it challenging to be productive. Vacation is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the feedback of employees, take exit interviews seriously. Provide training and discipline for middle management.

    I worked at Pyrotek full-time

    Pros

    Low Stress
    Comfortable work environment
    Proffit Sharing

    Cons

    Extremely low vacation time
    Good Old Boy System
    Low pay

    Advice to Management

    This would be a great company if they offered better vacation time.
    Another problem is the less than average salary. Employees that have been around are treated with much more respect regardless of experience levels.
    Overall the company offers a small business feel with an extremely low stress work environment. The company seems to care about the employee work environment, but does not offer enough vacation time, and compensation is not equal to the average in the region.

    Pros

    In my opinion the best reason I can think of to work for Pyrotek is to have an income and benefits. All you have to do is show up and half ass do your job then no one will bother you.

    Cons

    Running the press molds is an extremely hot, filthy, dusty job that requires excessive amounts of hard physical labor. The people are so negative and all they want to do is talk about everyone. The women are expected to do all the work while the men are hanging out in the office playing on the computer. I put my whole heart and soul into this job for three years, and after having to go out on medical leave and long term disability for a year they mailed me a letter telling me I was terminated and all my benefits would stop. Just like any other manufacturing business, they care nothing about you as a person, only that you're a human machine there to run their machines. The pay you receive doesn't even come close to matching the work done.

    Advice to Management

    Every once in a while it would be nice if management would show their appreciation for the hardworking employees instead of putting more work on the ones willing to do their job.

    I worked at Pyrotek full-time

    Pros

    Most co workers were good to work with

    Cons

    Lack of support. Many in fear of their jobs. Only way to make it is do as I say, not as I do. Poor management style.

    Advice to Management

    Look into Cortland. There is a reason for the high turnover.
