    I have been working at Regal Beloit full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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

    Advice to Management

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

    I have been working at Regal Beloit full-time (Less than a year)

    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

    Cons

    Pay is not based on local standard of living, there is a convoluted system that drives pay levels which is not explained outside of HR professionals

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with everyone. Playing close-to-the-vest is unnerving.

    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

    Pros

    Good People to work with. Strong local teams that care.

    Cons

    Lots of data collection on weekly/daily/monthly basis. Too much data collection without value added. Too many differing teams wanting data. Waste in updating data collection points.

    Advice to Management

    Develop standardized company wide reports that are consistent across all plants. Minimize data collection with manual work. Utilize systems or implement systems to track data. Too many reports from differing teams due at differing times...make them all consistent and that feed from one main report.
    Invest in US facilities.

    Pros

    Company is serious about ethical behavior - one strike and you are out. Good benefits. There are a lot of good and very capable people working there.

    Cons

    Too many meetings. Most people are overworked. There has been a tendency in recent years to increase non-value added work. Too much reliance on management by web apps .

    Advice to Management

    Remember you get what you pay for. When you emphasize production over everything else, continuous improvement and quality goes out the door. Paying for performance sounds great - as long as you can measure performance. A bunch of web apps can not measure - or improve - performance.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Work isn’t too bad fairly decent and easy too learn, enployees are a great bunch to work with.

    Cons

    Lead(s)/supervisor(s) can be immature, and play favoritism, don’t get treated properly, HR doesn’t properly go over harassment forms (from what I’ve heard and seen) lead(s)/supervisor(s) always have the upper hand.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your HR communication system, do more investigations for harassment claims don’t push them under the door. You’re a great factory! Some things just need to get fixed! But keep up the good work Regal!
