    Pros

    Get to work from home. Once you have a greater understanding of the customers and job needs can be moderately successful. Team was great unit for a while. Can get away with a lot of things if you know how to play the game.

    Cons

    Management is ran by sales and sales makes promises that cannot be met. Problems with products cannot be understated enough. Engineering is ran by unsupervised people and with no communication. People can say and do whatever they want and get away with it. Zero accountability by HR or any management whatsoever. Seen a manager verbally/physically assault another employee and then get away with it. Good old boys club for sure. Initial training was a joke and follow on training is not really there. Zero team work and communication is minimal. Pay is ok but not for all the bs that comes with the job. If you’re not in Michigan City itself you’ll never know what’s really going on.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key. HR needs to hold people accountable for there actions and not hide everything that is brought up in a reasonable manner. Stop promoting people that abuse the business as a whole and get away with murder by being part of the good old boys club. Treat your employees better and pay them correctly. Actually do something about engineering dept. before production starts on anything (I.e. test it fully before selling the product). It’s terrible now but could be so much better. I truly do hope that the company makes some serious changes to make sure the problems get fixed.

    Pros

    Good company to work for, nice people, decent leadership.

    Cons

    VERY resistant to change with A LOT of tenured people in key roles.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable and shake things up. No one should be in the same role for 20 years ... unless you don't want to adapt to changes in the market.

    Pros

    Excellent coworkers and strong management support. Good benefits with 401k match. With new ownership there are lots of investment in products, personnel, and technology.

    Cons

    Not many but restrictive IT policies and a few ownership changes. Sometimes sales staff is tasked with too many nonproductive tasks but overall great company to work for.

    Pros

    Sullair makes quality products and takes a lot of pride in their durability. Their leadership team is knowledgeable about the industry.

    Cons

    Very slow to change. Many people have been there for 20+ years and are operating the exact same way they did 15 years ago. A shake-up is long overdue.

    Advice to Management

    Shake things up. Move people into new roles and explore new ways of doing things.

    I have been working at Sullair (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and vacation benefits.

    Cons

    Management has no clue how to run a company. The purchasing department can not keep parts in house. Many compressors sit around half built sometimes for weeks. Blatant favoritism between supervisors and select employees. Management allows an angry little man to supervise and he runs things by intimidating people. No appreciation for hard work. Employees that consistantly cause a hostile work environment are left unchecked. HR refuses to help shop employees with any issues encountered on the floor with fellow employees or supervisors. HR and supervisors have been known to belittle and insult employees. The only incentive to work currently is fear of losing your job. Management does not comply with ISO standards and cheat their way through the ISO process. No engineering or quality support whatsoever. Any time theres a quality issue with a part or machine its automatically the fault of the assembly team whether it actually is or not. Employees are told at the end of the scheduled 10 hour day that they are to work an uknown amount of time past the scheduled stop time and if they leave before allowed to do so they will be punished. Morale is incredibly bad among employees.

    Advice to Management

    I personally have never worked at a company with so many angry, bitter, disgruntled employees and the people that manage this company are 100% at fault. I firmly believe that the current management is not capable of changing the environment of this company and will need to be replaced with a mangement staff that knows how to run a business and take care of their people.

    Pros

    Good pay for non union shop. They make your resume look good for future jobs elsewhere.

    Cons

    Back biting & snitches. HR dept. helps management & screws labor force. Coward supervisors that won't stand up for their own labor force against management. Non union shop. Bosses & Supervisors that don't even know their own products. Mechanical Engineers that show no support for the labor force. It's their way or the highway, no room for criticism, or advice. Jealousy among ranks and everyone fears for their job, unless you're a brown noser or a yes man.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They know their job, let them do it. Don't micromanage your labor force. Learn about your products before you make fools of yourselves in front of those that do know your products.
