    Pros

    Good benefits, great hours, decent pay- great co-workers

    Cons

    When I started with the company it was everything I could have asked for in a job. Due to some recent severe and jarring changes things are going downhill very fast. Morale is at an all time low

    Advice to Management

    Be more appreciative of the employees you gave- if things keep going the way they are you could lose them

    I worked at Victaulic full-time

    Pros

    Products and Brand recognition is unsurpassed. Constant innovation.

    Cons

    Delivery can be an issue but that's do to very high demand of some products.

    Management, is really a crap shoot. You can end up working for outstanding folks doing awesome worthwhile work or.... far less than that.

    Advice to Management

    There is but one path going forward. I suggest that some of the seasoned employees get on the bus with the new show or get off at the next stop.

    Pros

    Great benefits, very involved in the community, treat their employees well.

    Cons

    Some departments need change in management.

    Advice to Management

    Do something about the problem directors, managers, and supervisors. Good people are leaving.

    I worked at Victaulic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are excellent. Vacation time was lacking, but the health benefits and other factors made up for it. The product line is very good and there is a lot of faith in it at most levels. Victaulic also has a strong presence in various industries, reducing the risk from a downturn in any specific industry. The companies product line is increasingly in demand within the fire suppression industry. John Malloy, the CEO, seems to be taking steps to solidify the companies position in these industries.

    Cons

    There is an extreme disconnect between different departments and various levels of the organization. You will have various goals and changes thrown at you that fail to address immediate problems that will interfere with the business. Advice and documentation of problems is not acted on and problems worsen until they stop production. Anything that doesn't increase production numbers will be ignored, even things that will decrease those numbers. If you are not salaried (and even then) you will not have a work life balance that is worth anything. 6 day weeks were common at my site. Unscheduled forced overtime is very common on the union side and salary side does not fair better in the foundries. Advancement opportunities are also extremely limited if you start on the production side. They view it as a cost rather than a necessary part of their business, which extends to their view of you.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a change in culture. You are shedding employees who know there areas of expertise and sticking with the good old boy mentality. I watched many good people leave before I couldn't take it any longer. There is no way for change to happen if you have managers who constantly push for the same failing thing in place. Eventually you will be left with people who don't care, don't know, or simply want to enrich themselves at the cost of your business and plants. There are a lot of employees who suggest changes that could increase up time and reduce operator burn out. You just have to listen to them.

    Excellent group of people that are intelligent, courteous, and down to earth. Never felt like there was office politics.

    If it is your first job out of school, you won't know how good it is.
