Good experience to learn a broad range of skills.. but you really work for it
Engineer (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MN – January 4, 2017
Much like any company, you are going to have amazing and awful co-workers and managers. Greatbatch is no exception. The salary I would say is decent, but the benefits I would say are mediocre.. mainly the 401K matching.
The company is a really good start for a fledgling engineer to get his/her hands dirty and get a broad range of experiences. However, you definitely have to work hard. Just as an aside for anyone who reads this, one's ability to perform a job has nothing to do with his experience and/or level of education. Time and time again, Greatbatch has hired or brought in people who, on paper, look amazing but in actuality delegate the work to everyone else and contribute zero work overall. This company is sortof a blessing for that reason, since that means there's tons of work to go around but that also means that a only few handful of people are doing the work.
Decent pay, No work life balance (if you want money)
