    Pros

    The Company is privately held without a lot of red tape, it is philanthropic and cares about community, and it continues to concentrate on manufacturing in the USA.

    Cons

    Executives don't seem to understand the impact of projects on their teams. There are constantly changes being pushed through regardless of the bandwidth of the team to execute.

    Pros

    Great variety of products to work on. Lots of challenge. Local leadership is great.

    Cons

    Typical corporate mentality of disposable production staff. Deadlines for complex custom projects are completely unrealistic.

    Pros

    Great working environment, working to be a competitive employer

    Pros

    People in individual contributor roles are great. Down to earth, approachable, and willing to help.

    Cons

    Management is not afraid to steal credit and step over the actual workers when things go well or throw them under the bus when things go wrong. Lack of training in all aspects from outdated computer systems to processes that are supposedly standard that no one tells you about or how to find them. A lot of Kohler alum with the backstabbing what about me culture. Vollrath brags about the culture but they continue to hire those that are not a good fit and let management and those in leadership positions be disrespectful, pass blame on others and don't hold them accountable. We are severely understaffed in my department but no good talent to bring in. Work to advance the work force you have by providing training, classes, or find entry level workers to take on the basic tasks that are required but dont require the skill level of the mid-level worker.

    Beware

    Pros

    The people working on the shop floor are great. Support functions at other locations: H.R., S/R, Purchasing, etc. are great to work with

    Cons

    Culture is the most toxic management environment I've ever worked. People will throw you and any of their coworkers under the bus at anytime. Expect 50 hour plus work weeks.

    Pros

    Good team members on the floor.

    Cons

    If you want to be micromanaged in a dismissive culture, work here. Want to implement improvements, don’t work here. If you’re on Huber and need a temporary job, work here. Want your manager to dump all their work on you, watch them get promoted because they have no idea what you did or how after you quit, work here. The definition of all talk and no walk, work here. Want to here middle management joke about the “culture change,” work here.
