    Pros

    Team members have a lot of tenure

    Little to zero appreciation/reward for success

    If you aren't going to pay a premium for talent, you need to find ways to act like you value them.

    Pros

    Lots of interesting projects. Good people to work with

    Cons

    Need more help. No support from above and takes for ever to get anyone hired for open positions. We've had several IT openings for months.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more qualified people. Contractors help in short term but usually knowledge transfer is lost.

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

    Pros

    None, none none none none

    Cons

    Disrespect, disregard, permanent employees lazy, let temps do all the work while they gossip, play on computer, do nothing. All the while harassing and brow beating temps. No win enviornment. Horrible leads and idiot HR leadership listening to hearsay and not investigating HR matters. Extremely bias when making firing and hiring decisions. No updated drawings, no manufacturing instructions. Training is dependent on what they want to teach you. Horrendous!!!

    Advice to Management

    Get your butt in the manufacturing area and see what is really happening. Stop turning a blind eye to discrimination and harassment. Start organizing, updating, manufacturing drawings. This place is the epitome of the definition of insanity. " Insanity is doing the things the same way every time, and expecting a different outcome"

    The strategic direction is not communicated well and so is it not understood by everyone. Constant change causes confusion and identity problems within the business.

    My job allowed me to be a part of some great projects and the ability to make a positive impact in organization. I had the opportunity to be innovative and creative in my everyday job. My employer appreciates and values my skills

    Cons

    Could provide more training opportunities and more opportunities to advance within

    Advice to Management

    We are at a place / time where we need to align on a key strategies and execute against them with clear focus, and total commitment. You can help us improve by enabling decision making throughout the layers

    I worked at Regal Beloit full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    At first, Regal replaced our MRP system which was great. They trained us for use and left a staff of people to help us thru the transition. Safety was critical. Any safety issues were dealt with immediately. At first, it seemed like things were about to get better.

    Cons

    As is the case with holding companies, they come in like gang busters then fizzle. Wages stagnated, meetings got less and less and the meetings they did have were general accountant jargon intended for upper management and left the rest of the company dry on information. Scheduling for jobs were tight and whether customer changed things in the contracts or we did, they wanted them at the same finish dates and don't give you the overtime to do the work. They'll take your OT for nothing though to keep your job. Some managers not really managers and have no clue how to really run the department they're supposed to be in charge of. Just get it out the door attitude. Lack of advancement opportunities, poor health care package. Lack of concern for quality due to "get it out the door" attitude. People come there to work for them and they're supposed to set the goals. They give no real sense of direction for the worker, do not follow standards they claim to follow and really don't care.

    Advice to Management

    Feels like a waste of time as all they'd do anyway is explain it away. For Benshaw, they really need to put more people into the management positions. They're spread pretty thin. They also need to knock it off with the same old stories of how we're broke when it comes to review times for raises. Dump the "self review" and all the heady individual defined goal setting stuff for reviews too. People come there to work for them and they're supposed to set the goals. They give no real sense of direction for the employees. Stop being talking heads and learn to really manage - get on the floor with your people instead of hanging out at management meetings and your office.
