    I have been working at Timken as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent pay & benefits. Values their employees. Takes safety seriously and works hard toward creating a safe work environment. Always looking to keep the morale of their employees positive by creating events such as bowling, picnics, etc. HR has an open door policy. They find and create ways to offer extra training for their employees. Timken is simply a world class organization. I'm very proud to be a part of it.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that I do smell like oil every night when I go home. But, hey it's a bearing plant. It's to be expected. So to me, there aren't any real cons.
