    I worked at Weir ESCO full-time

    Pros

    Good Pay Good Benefits Good PTO Somewhat good training

    Cons

    Not much advancement if you are not "kissing" the correct people. Too many new hires and promotions are family related. High turn-over rate in the shop. bad moral. poor communications from upper management

    Advice to Management

    Maybe promote within the company not just family and friends?

    I worked at Weir ESCO full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have ok pay. They have bonuses every month and have all the supplies you need. They buy everyone lunch once a month

    Cons

    Raises are not very good. Management has favorites. Ive worked with people that get fired for failing drug test and come back months later like nothing happened. Favorites can also make outside arrangements without batting a eye to management. While others will get fired rather fast if they do. The air is pretty bad in the shop. Alot of the metals welded on contain hazardous material such as chromium. Long... hours as well. And lastly they have alot of safty issues . if you have a concern and want to change something like a tripping hazard from a air hose or safe guards on machines. It will only be addressed after someone gets hurt

    I worked at Weir ESCO full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Not that many, actually none. The products are interesting although copied by many other companies and offered cheaper. The salary did pay most of the bills but did not make me rich.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic and un-decisive upper management. Clear gender pay gap. Activity driven. We produced a lot of data, not much information and we could detect no management action based on the information delivered.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out the Esco lifers
