    I worked at Swagelok full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Quality people to work with that care about integrity and teamwork. You have your set of responsibilities to take care of, but if you need any help, people are more than willing to stop what they are doing to assist you. Training for the industry and product line is second to none!

    Cons

    The breadth of product line is so deep that it simply takes time and experience to master all of it. Nothing too complicated, just so much product. Must be patient with yourself and take time to study the industry

    Advice to Management

    none

    I have been working at Swagelok full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Stability. Swagelok does have a lot of tenure, with plenty of knowledge of the industry. They hire good people. Friendly, informative... Compensation is commensurate with the industry. If you know the right people, you can do well. Are you thinking about working here? It’s great if you want a job. If you want a career, you better have an in with the CEO.

    Cons

    It’s a good old boy network. It’s who you know, not what you know that gets you up the ranks. They have an open door policy, but don’t like hearing challenging ideas. SLOW to change. They embrace a career development program to fill their leadership pipeline, so if you actually know what you are doing, and are a seasoned leader, look elsewhere. Operations v Office are two different companies with respect...

    You’ve created an apex employee base, alienating a lot of ambitious, hardworking, intelligent and accomplished associates.

    I worked at Swagelok for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Multiple projects in different departments Large company - various roles to choose from

    Cons

    The people - you need to have a certain personality to work here. And that is stuck up and like to kiss your boss’s ___ Your supervisor most likely won’t care about your work and your role. He will do whatever he needs to for his image

    Advice to Management

    Management is very biased. I know multiple people that quit swagelok and hated the company.
