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

    Pros

    The employees always try to help each other.

    Wages and benefits are decent.

    Why does this 'pro' review require a 20 word minimum? There aren't enough pros to cover 20 words so I am writing this to take up space.

    Cons

    Extremely under staffed so failure is a guarantee. Upper management is clueless of its actual operations and what's all involved.

    Upper management has no idea how the company actually operates.

    Turn over in upper management is ridiculous.

    The staff never gets the support they need to be a successful company.

    I.T. is managed from Germany which makes problem solving a lengthy ordeal given the time difference.

    Something is happening with the cranberry & mars plants but management won't say anything so the employees go into work each day with a big question mark above their head. Everybody knows something's about to go down but upper management tries to play it off. Can you be any more obvious? That's just sneaky and unethical. Trashy.

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to really learn the operations and listen to the staff. They know what they need and they need your support.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, friendly atmosphere, celebrates their employees with holiday cookouts, a private company picnic at the zoo, and a cake when someone retires.

    Cons

    Sometimes leadership at site levels butt heads and can't always agree on how to get something done, but that happens everywhere.
