    I worked at Swagelok full-time

    Pros

    Low accountability means you can do whatever you want. If you want to skate through the day, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    Sexism and racism abound here - it's like going back in time about 35-40 years. The leadership and executive teams can't make a decision if their lives depended on it. Then when they do, the owner emotionally intervenes and twists it all around again. Employees need to be provided with neck collars as part of their new hire packet to help heal the almost constant reverse-decision-making-whiplash that happens almost daily. Mediocre talent in management is the benchmark here, which sets the performance bar low for everyone working there.

    Pros

    Employee stock option might be the only positive aspect about Swagelok

    Cons

    Way too many downsides to working at Swagelok. Management plays favorites to brown-nosers. Not enough accountability on set-up personnel and supervisors. Unrealistic expectations on lower-level associates. No work/life balance. No real advancement opportunities unless you are buddies with a supervisor.
