Company Culture

There is an attempt to involve employees in company and community activities by HR, but senior management doesn't seem to be visible in this effort.

Support from management

My direct supervisor as well as the department supervisor support me in my daily activities, however, they promote new hires over me for a job I wanted. They indicate I'm "too valuable to lose" regarding my current position.

Teamwork

Departments need to work together better and want to help each other succeed.

Freedom to work independently

I am free to incorporate new technologies in my designs.

Internal Communication

Communications between departments is lacking, especially when it comes to issues out in the field that could benefit future designs.

Gender Equality

There are more women working in positions I have seen them working before.

Attitude towards older colleagues

There are a number of senior engineers who could be utilized for mentoring but the company philosophy is such that they don't like multiple engineers working together.

Career Development

I try to advance my career by taking night classes but the company does not recognize my efforts.

Overall compensation for your work

I feel that competition for my job is well under industry standards. I basically work for a loss each year as we get no cost of living increases.

Office / Work Environment

They recently remodeled the office area, gave us new desks, etc. While a little small, they are nice.

Environmental Friendliness

I think the company complies with environmental standards better now than in the past.

Work-Life Balance

I'm always home nearly every evening, I work 5 days a week with occasional travel to break things up.

Company Image

The company has become a global leader due to the acquisition of other businesses worldwide.

Job Security

With all the new hires coming in above me, I am feeling like the company is phasing me out.

Handicapped Accessibility

90% of the campus is at ground level.

Workplace Safety

Under our new safety coordinator, safety priority has been elevated to a new awareness.

Challenging Work

I am looking for more challinging work but what I am doing now provides adequate challenges.

Inclusive / Diverse

There is probably more cultural diversity now than at any time in the history of the company.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Listen to senior employees. Provide fair opportunities for long term employees instead of ignoring them for promotions.

What I like about the company

Located in a small town.

What I dislike about the company

Ignore the fact that the cost of living is going up, while our wages are not.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Increase pay scales to be more competitive and to keep up with cost of living. Listen to experienced employees regarding business decisions and design risks.

What I like about the company

I enjoy living and working in a small town with the ability to be close to my family. I can take time off if necessary to take care of their needs.

What I dislike about the company

I am topped out in my pay grade with no where to advance. The pay is quite a bit less than other companies in central Kansas doing similar work.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would send engineers to more trade shows and demonstrations to learn more how others utilize similar purchased parts. Also, i would provide more training on how to use the tools we currently have more efficiently.

What I like about the company

I like working in a small town while also getting to travel all over the United States. I have been able to visit all sorts of places I never would have otherwise had the opportunity. I have the freedom to use my creativity and also have opportunities touse other skills outside my regular skillset or job responsibilities.

What I dislike about the company

I feel that the compensation package should be reviewed company-wide. For the skills required to perform my job, I feel that the compensation could be more competitive. Additionally, training opportunities could be ramped up. Specifically, learning morein depth details about the components we use in the design process.
