Suggestions for improvement

  • Bring the workplace into the 21st century. If you want to recruit to Austin, MN, you need to blow candidates away with benefits. I would start with 3-4 weeks vacation for new hires, 12 weeks paid parental leave for both parents, and a couple more holidays to better compete with nearby companies

What I like about the company

Company leadership prioritizes doing the right thing for the world and the communities the company operates in. Great retirement benefits, including pension and profit sharing. Medical, dental, and vision are above average. Job stability is great, going back to the company founder’s experience being laid off from his previous job.

What I dislike about the company

The vacation accrual structure and parental leave policy need some work as they are no longer comparable to peer companies. The expectation of being in the office at 7 AM is also ridiculous, especially given half the employees commute 40 miles across a winter wonderland to get there.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Our culture change initiatives are definitely showing signs of improvement. It is imparitive we continue to foster our future leaders

What I like about the company

When I was forced to make a decision on whether to leave the company for personal reasons or continue my career, my superintendent was able to get me a transfer to another facility so I could continue my career.

What I dislike about the company

Promotions are almost impossible to get, even if you are willing to relocate. The invisible line between parent company and subsidiary hinders promotions and forces people to switch companies if they what to move up.

  • I think the HR department needs to research what it will take to keep the younger generation there. It is getting hard to keep people in Austin MN. The compensation is the biggest factor for most it seems like.

What I like about the company

They have a great internship program. Lots of opportunity to grow, move up in the company, and work in different areas to become more well rounded. Good compensation for salaried employees.

What I dislike about the company

The culture is a point of emphasis, but not everyone is on board. The corporate office is outdated. It will be hard to retain the new and younger workforce.
