    I have been working at Regal Beloit full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good place to work, you will learn as much as you push yourself to learn. Very fast paced

    Cons

    You top out rather quickly, and once you do you hit a ceiling with never a raise in sight.

    Advice to Management

    Keep progressing and bringing the company up to a star 1 facility. Be true to your word.

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

    Pros

    Good people below management levels.

    Cons

    Upper management out of touch, middle management heavy, plant level management inept and and dishonest. Only concerned with dog and pony shows for corporate. I worked for Regal for 33 years and walked away due to the the dishonest and unethical treatment I received from plant level management and middle level management.

    Advice to Management

    Way to many middle managers running unfettered. Send a mole into some of these facilities and see how things really run.

    Everyone is smiling... When do you see happy machinist? Wage is only half the equation, but weighted for the whole portion

    90% of General public thinks a wage is a dollar amount when in actuaslity a wage is a 401K, Health Insurance costs, (Dental & vision). Just needs a workout facility

    Keep working at developing the infrastructure. All in time as they say. Good things are never easy so just keep at it

    Pros

    Company does high-quality work (easy to be proud of)
    Culture is uplifting and supportive
    Management focused on identifying and promoting talent
    Focus on professional development and continuous improvement

    Pros

    Only good thing is no production in kop-flex area

    Cons

    kop-flex is employee's on machines are UNDER PAID big time sad thing is they know and won't change it. Had a 3rs party look at wages in florence ky area and kop was 60% under while a trash guy was 120% over average. They take care of the wrong people when kop is your big ticket area!

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and look around! HR needs revamped they dont help can't move up ladder some team leads hide jobs to slow work down to have OT. Place ran great when it was Emerson
