  • I don’t think AO Smith needs to improve anything because I think their policies and environment are up to date and well.

What I like about the company

Working with AO Smith is very easy because they are reasonable and understanding. Whenever I need a day off they reason with me to make it work. Overall my opinion on AO Smith is all positive with the respect they give you and everything else.

What I dislike about the company

I don’t disapprove of anything the company does. I give all positive constructive feedback about AO Smith.

Suggestions for improvement

  • There needs to be more of a focus on collaboration between all business levels and areas. Too many people are left in the dark about what leaderships goals are and how they can work to reach those goals.

What I like about the company

Working on cross functional projects with diverse groups of people. Traveling to experience different parts of the business.

What I dislike about the company

Although I appreciate space to work on my own and prove myself, sometimes employees need support and direction from leadership on strategic direction, which is often hard to get.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More options for shifts, and additional off phone projects to help give everyone more variety throughout the day.

What I like about the company

My mother was very ill and was going to the hospital. They told me my job would be here when I could come back and for me to go take care of her. They are caring, and show miles of concern for their employees.

What I dislike about the company

I wish they had an individual set of PTO for sick time that when taken it would not effect the points you have for attendance.

Company Culture

The best culture I've encountered so far. A friendly attitude and supportive environment make this a wonderful place to work, if you can do the work.

Support from management

Management is supportive and oriented toward solutions.

Teamwork

Teamwork is excellent. While any given individual should be able to do their assignment on their own there are people to support them if needed.

Freedom to work independently

Due to the nature of the work independent work is rarely feasible.

Internal Communication

Meetings range from daily to semi-weekly depending on department, location and supervisor. Information provided ranges from the cafeteria schedule to safety reminders; focus on safety is high.

Gender Equality

As hiring is based on merit or seniority depending on the position gender is not a factor.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Many employees are well into mid-life; this has no bearing on their treatment. Newer employees, if they are wise, do go to them for information and advice from time to time.

Work-Life Balance

Frequent overtime and occasional weekends makes long-term plans without the use of vacation time difficult.

Job Security

If you can do the work you will have job security by all appearances.

Handicapped Accessibility

Due to the nature of the work in the factory total handicapped accessibility is untenable. Accommodations are available to an extent, however, and the company does what it can.

Workplace Safety

Safety is treated as a top priority, with frequent mandatory safety meetings and discussions of safety topics during shift meetings.

Inclusive / Diverse

Hiring is based on merit or seniority.

Company Culture

The company has a positive corporate culture. The values statement says "AO Smith will be a good place to work" The ethics statement says "we will live our values with honesty and integrity". This culture is supported and promoted throughout the company.

Workplace Safety

Safety is the most important aspect of our job. Employees are valued. Health and Safety is a concern for everyone.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Communication between employees and corporate could be a little better.

What I like about the company

The company is genuinely concerned about employees health and safety. They offer and encourage advancement training. They promote from within the company.
