    Pros

    It's a pay check and they give small increase every year, do your job and you should get the 3%.

    Cons

    Bad management and as other reviews mentioned they put no money into their software so employees are always doing runarounds to get things done. Co-worker's job consist 75% of finding ways to get what the customer needs by working around the system. They added Fuel Quest to the mix and now no one accepts any responsibility of who fixes what and I have had tickets out waiting to get fixed for over 6 months. Super simple items but everyone wants the other guy to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Take some management classes or get out of the way.

    I worked at Veeder-Root Company full-time

    Pros

    Not many...Executive Management keeps their head in the sand and has NO CLUE WHAT THEIR MANAGERS ARE REALLY DOING OUT IN THE FIELD...or how they are really treating their direct reports.

    Cons

    Executive Management is run via the "Good Ole Boy"network. Human Resources are there to protect the company and those managers that are protected by their higher-ups no matter how badly they treat the employees, and finally, the Operations is a mess where customers and Distributors are treated like 2nd class citizens. Everyone knows this but stays there anyway.....unbelievable.

    Advice to Management

    None. They don't care and it's not going to change.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to move around within the organization. Good pay for the area. Fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times just like any other job. Lots of turnover. Union workforce can be challenging at times. Sometimes seems like it's not what you know it's who you know to get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Hold employees accountable for their actions. Don't let the union run the place. Don't promote from within just to hit the ifr metric. If the talent is not there then get the right people from outside.

    I worked at Veeder-Root Company full-time

    Pros

    You'll gain new career experience in area's not typically learned at other companies, competative salary, growth opportunities are possible outside the company within other opco's.

    Cons

    EXTREMELY high turn over in office ... poor training and poor mentoring, work load is more than any human can do in a 8 or 10 or 12+ hour day every week. Standard work & Computer Systems aren't mainted (kept up to date) if at all by site until a problem occurs. Treats union members as a part of the problem instead of engaging as a part of the solution. Give up your personal & family life. That is what is required, expected and quitely demanded.
