    I worked at Rexnord (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My location had great people, enjoyed my counterparts and direct managers, good pay, good place to work for a few years for experience

    Cons

    Communication is the worst of all places I have worked (very cloak and dagger), Upper management (mostly) sits in an ivory tower, if you're at a plant level good luck moving up to corporate level, management shuffle every 2 years so constant directional change, held accountable for low sales while company simultaneously refuses to stock any product as a means of cost savings.

    Advice to Management

    Require monthly meetings for DIR level and quarterly or bi-annually for higher to actually visit the plant sites and give updates / q&a. Reporting to DIR level people that might visit your location 1-2 times a year does nothing for moral or communication.

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

    Pros

    Can't say there are many.

    Cons

    No balance of life, over-time is a business strategy, rather than hire new workers. Squeaky customer get's the attention and larger orders $$$ are favored over smaller orders to be way-layed and fulfilled later, all so Sr. Management can hit revenue targets, while smaller $$$ customers go elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more workers for the customer service team. You've lost quite a few over the past 5 to 6 months. Quit treatment your CSRs like trash, respect them, as they are your front line.

    The type of work is great

    Cons

    Bad Management , they seemed to have trouble scheduling work on the machines.
    They were clueless on how long it takes to make a part.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the young works nap on the clock.

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent benefits,

    Cons

    Management still cant do anything right, so whats the answer? Beat on the people to go faster, do more, cover their butts

    Advice to Management

    Please start looking at the problems, (Planning) and quit beating on the people that make you look good. This new technique of management by intimidation will not work for you. You will fail yet again. The place runs by itself if you would just let it.

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

    Pros

    You will get the experience you need to get a decent job. Office employees are pretty good people. That's all.

    Cons

    Very low pay and poor benefits. Company-vested 401k amount only remains after 3 years - no one lasts that long. Reported daily to corporate where nothing was accomplished. Occasionally was requested to work extra hours without compensation, including weekends. Lack of experienced personnel in industry. Lack of disciplinary action towards workers who didn't want to work. Too many workers got away with doing nothing...

    Advice to Management

    There was a lot of favoritism towards women. Treat everyone as equal, and reward those who accomplish their work. Rewarding and acknowledgements go a long way. Also, there was a good bit of scapegoating by management...

    Don't blame one individual for the failure of the team.

    Listen to the collection of complaints from reliable employees and follow through with their requests.

    Don't allow workers to sit around all day doing nothing, do something about it.

    Pros

    Good bonus structure for certain employees.

    Cons

    Main downsides is management does not watch out for its employees. The direction continually changes and you are left out. Run away from any opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Don't constantly change annual goals for the employees. the employees are just CYA.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, great comradery among coworkers, focus on making problems visual and always striving for continuous improvement. The type of work is varied day to day (usually developing innovative solutions to solve specific customer problems), which makes coming to work exciting. Great place for creative thinking and innovation, and plenty of opportunities exist for one to showcase both. Big push recently to better commercialize our products and increase brand awareness.

    Cons

    Plant level x-matrices often have too many TTIs, which spreads focus away from projects of critical importance when "closest to the sun" isn't followed and everything has to be done. Typical industry problems, where projects are often not given sufficient personnel / talent or financial backing to successfully achieve the deadline. Some product groups get more "love" than others.

    Pros

    Easy work. Decent schedule sun-thurs

    Cons

    3rd shift supervisor is more like a loud hourly employee. Promoting hostility is not a job duty. The hourly employees tell the supervisor who goes and who stays. The seniority employees that have been supervised by current supervisor on 3rd are in desperate need of workplace/sensitivity training.new temp employees that are exposed to this will eventually act in tbe same manner. Already proven. EEOC is on its way.Employment lawyers on there way

    Advice to Management

    Move 3rd shift supervisor to 1st give him workplace sensitivity training. Give 3rd shift hourlies employee sensitivity training. Hold people accountable. Production is not the only issue.

    Pros

    flexible hours, fair compensation, bonuses come in the form of a quarterly contribution to your 401k, which is nice for retirement planning but not if you're looking for that immediate payoff

    Cons

    in the facility where i work, there is little opportunity to move up and the criteria to achieve a promotion is often unclear

    Advice to Management

    help your employees develop
