    I worked at Sun Hydraulics full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Co-workers and management treated each other like a family. Great Benefits including medical/dental/vision and matching 401(k) Great atmosphere. You were allowed to learn, grow/advance in the company and management had a open door policy and treated everyone with respect .

    Cons

    Pay was not great even after 8 years of dependable hard work and a vast knowledge of thier complete line of products and multiple departments, raises we're horrible or non existent. Prices for benefits started to increase every year. Events for employees got cheaper. No more opportunity for growth or advancement in the company, just stuck where you are and being used like a TOOL! The company elected a new CEO who was...

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with RESPECT and create a open door policy with Upper Management. Give employees OPPORTUNITIES to GROW and advance in the company. GET BETTER LOWER MANAGEMENT/SUPERVISORS that are not EMOTIONALLY ABUSIVE and UNQUALIFIED. Outsource QUALIFIED supervisors that are not PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE. But instead lead by experience, and MOTIVATE with a MORE POSITIVE ATTITUDE. WHICH CREATES A POSITIVE WORK ENVIRONMENT.

    I have been working at Sun Hydraulics full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great retirement/401k employer matched contributions, opportunity to purchase company shares. Very clean facility. Great vision and future goals.

    Cons

    Opportunity for advancement and pay rises are determined by extreme favoritism-not skills, experience, performance or work ethic. Very poor communication and inability to make decisions from facility managers, relying on personal opinions of friends rather that facts. Infomation outside of chosen circles is largely ignored for months until the idea is regurgitated by the inner circle. Not enough workers to perform...

    Advice to Management

    A clean sweep of production managers and replacing with outsiders would be more effective in acheiving the vision of the CEO. The opportunity for success would be tremendous with experienced managers rather than those put in senior positions by friends.

    I worked at Sun Hydraulics for less than a year

    Pros

    It was a great experience to work at Sun Hydraulics for the summer. The employees at Sun Hydraulics are all very upbeat and are happy to be there. There is a good amount of diversity within the company and there are opportunities for domestic/international traveling.

    Cons

    The managers and some employees are constantly in meetings which sometimes makes it hard for work to be completed in a timely manner.
