Support from management

Outrageous expectations. Used to be backed up by support, but that faded away several years ago.

Teamwork

The teams would come together when it mattered

Internal Communication

I've never heard so many 4 letter words from an executive team in my entire career.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Removed when able

Career Development

Fairly good for factory workers, non-existent for management

Overall compensation for your work

Good back when bonus payments were made. Completely noncompetitive without bonuses

Office / Work Environment

About what you would expect for a factory. Kept clean and well organized

Environmental Friendliness

Eco consciousness driven by cost savings potential, not for the environment

Work-Life Balance

Lots of talk, but no follow thru

Workplace Safety

Safety culture was stron

Challenging Work

Never a dull moment

Inclusive / Diverse

White males only

Suggestions for improvement

  • Sell the company to someone that cares, and has a more enlightened (modern) view of management and communications....

What I like about the company

Excellent compensation WHEN bonuses were paid

What I dislike about the company

Aggressive management environment

Company Culture

Edgy at times, but good teamwork among the troops

Support from management

All depends on which manager!

Teamwork

Usually the teamwork is tight

Freedom to work independently

With the given hierarchy, independent work is rare

Internal Communication

Not the most reliable, often those needing to know...they don't & are aren't told

Gender Equality

Maybe in rare instances in engineering, but as a rule, no.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Not as a rule, but not completely untrue.

Career Development

There are some roads to advancement, but they aren't all that common.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay is right about average or just above, but the monthly bonus, when paid, is a nice perk...but the bonus used to be quite a bit more than years past

Office / Work Environment

So-so on this one, could be better, could be worse

Environmental Friendliness

Seems to be a 'wave-of-the hand' level of effort on being eco-buddies, like going through the motions

Work-Life Balance

Yeah, they say that. Like most companies, this is a buzzword & no quite practiced. Funny how 'work' comes first, right?

Company Image

World leader, greatly improved quality, made in USA image is something to be proud of

Job Security

Machine tool market is fickle, there have been layoffs and there will be more, nature of the beast, so you're never on totally stable ground working there

Handicapped Accessibility

Basic needs are taken care of for office folks

Workplace Safety

Safety is taken seriously

Challenging Work

Work is challenging enough to keep it interesting, but maybe it's the personalities and culture that are what's really challenging.

Inclusive / Diverse

Not even.

Suggestions for improvement

  • See if the infighting between managers can be solved

What I like about the company

Interesting work, varied projects, dedicated staff in all departments, pretty much the last survivor of machine tools in America, owner is very involved

What I dislike about the company

Not enough transparency in communication, bad relationships between managers that can adversely effect project success in timely manner

Company Culture

It's a very hostile environment with managers who bully, intimidate, and scream the f-word all day long.

Support from management

Upper management will jump at the chance to throw workers under the bus.

Teamwork

Depends on the team members.

Freedom to work independently

The average worker has no say in their work load. Work is not evenly distributed.

Career Development

Once you're in the spot management wants you in it's near impossible to move within the company.

Overall compensation for your work

Good pay, good benefits, nice bonus (when criteria is met). That's what keeps people there even when they're unhappy.

Office / Work Environment

Nice office area with decent equipment.

Environmental Friendliness

Claim to be environmentally conscious.

Work-Life Balance

They talk a good work-life balance, but when it comes down to it, you're expected to give up other commitments/plans at the drop of a hat.

Job Security

No job security. Workers are constantly reminded that they are "at will" employees.

Challenging Work

Dull and routine.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Knock off the constant screaming and swearing. Stop the favoritism of those who play the brown-nosing game.

What I like about the company

Decent pay, good benefits, bonus (when goals are met)

What I dislike about the company

Horrible (verbally abusive) work environment

Company Culture

Everything is needed by yesterday. Everything has high priority. People must deliver 20 things at a time because management request.

Support from management

There is no truly leadership in this company. This is the old school style where the boss shouts at the employees to do what he wants to be done.

Teamwork

Everybody work in silos, since there is no leadership there is no team .

Freedom to work independently

There is no structure to measure if the workload is fair. No metrics in place.

Internal Communication

Monthly meetings are established to inform about company and department results. This is necessary and well done

Gender Equality

I have seen only one promotion in a year

Attitude towards older colleagues

Yes

Career Development

There is no career path established. No structure to develop people. Only goals to achieve, but not how to prepare the people to easily achieve them

Overall compensation for your work

Generally speaking they pay well

Office / Work Environment

Good conditions in general

Work-Life Balance

People need to achieve their goals no matter what. Management does not mention anything about work and life balance. Nobody at that level promotes that

Company Image

don't know

Job Security

This is a constant of this company. After my first week being hired the company fired 3 people from the department. I was freak out to see that. In one year at least 6 people has gone

Yes, proud what I can deliver to the company
