    I worked at Valmont Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The medical benefit options were extremely affordable compared to other employers, pto was on par with the industry. The best part of the role was that there are some very smart and talented people working in the customer service/engineering team and it was a pleasure to work with them. The production team is very dedicated, has a wealth of product knowledge, and the pride that they demonstrated in their work was something you don’t often see in this day in age. I had a great boss who was excellent with communications and negotiations.

    Cons

    The culture between production and admin was very divisive and that behavior often led to admin being blamed for things they didn’t do or weren’t given the proper tools to perform correctly. Some of the smartest people would be blamed or talked poorly about by site leadership. As I understand it, the leadership has recently changed and so I would expect a more collaborative approach going forward with that change. Some of the other locations within valmont also have a similar divisive and blame game approach. there is a strong leadership team in corporate and operations to support and hopefully they will continue to work to levelset reasonable expectations. I rated low for diversity and inclusion based on my experiences, though changes after leaving seem likely to improve this for the future.

    I have been working at Valmont Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Valmont is a manufacturing company with its foot in many doors (irrigation, coating, structures, utility). Because of this, they're a very stable company and are doing their best to be industry leaders in each of those fields. It's exciting to see the strides they've been taking the past 10 years and what lies ahead for the future. Overall pros: - stability - good paying - extremely few layoffs - good benefits

    Cons

    - long commute if working in the Valley office (driving from Omaha) - kind of an old company, so they can be stuck in their ways of management/operating (getting better, though)
