Cell Operator 1 (Former Employee) –  Maplewood, MOOctober 18, 2017
High pressure to get products made, I learned to operate different machines, and succeed at each position, the hardest part of the job was maintaining family atmosphere after work. The most enjoyable part of the job, was visiting Sunnen Lake.
Pros
minimum supervision
Cons
lack of teamwork

Planner (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOAugust 18, 2017
Aggressive people that aren't nice.
The place is very dirty, the management is not qualified.
If you are loud and cuss a lot, they will notice you. If you are quiet, nice and do your work, they will throw you under the bus.
The whole place needs a face lit, it's seriously dirty.
If you have worked there a long time, everyone knows your business and gossips like a bunch of high school kids.
This is not a career oriented place, this is a spiral to the dark side.
Pros
Clean eating area
Cons
Filth, immature people, no raises, not appreciated, high stress. No one works together

Assistant Sales Manager/Key Accounts Manager (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJune 1, 2017
Long hours and a lot of travel. Company really doesn't have a clue on what to do to make this company successful. A lot of people are riding a coat tail to the end with little work or help to increase sales. Management is new and has continued to make poor decisions with input from people that are from Europe and has no idea how domestic sales work. To have a sales manager that has never been in the field as a sales person to head up the sales department is some what confusing.
Pros
Pay check and insurance
Cons
Cut back pay, and also no 401 match

Employee (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOMarch 30, 2016
Gone too long for a relevant assessment of the current state of the organization. Many long-term employees, excellent focus on quality, and fair comp/benefit standards. Few opportunities for advancement for employees outside of sales or engineering.

Test and Evaluation Technician (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOFebruary 22, 2015
Overall Sunnen is a good company to work for.
Coworkers are great.
Sunnen is a great place to learn about manufacturing.
The most difficult part of the job past and present, objectives not clearly defined. Expectations change constantly.
The best part about my job, is seeing a job from inception to completion, it gives a sense of accomplishment on a job well done.
Pros
People are friendly .
Cons
Advancement in education not clearly recognized.

Production (Current Employee) –  St.louis,MOMarch 23, 2013
As a temp you are glad and eager to have a job at this company. But once you've been there for a couple of month you'll began to see how unhappy the people are. Due to the lack of training,favortism and being over looked because supervisors choose to hire their relatives over you. Employees are afraid to speak up because they fear retaliation from their supervisor and co-workers no one will speak up for you. You are cheated out of raises and or promotion because you are outspoken and choose to blow the whistle and expose them for who they really are. This company chooses to hire managers from outside instead of promoting from within. Many supervisors and cell leaders have no idea what my job entails. They give orders and constantly make changes based on one persons knowledge and not the groups. They say in order to be employed at Sunnen you must have manufacturing experience; I've witnessed this company hire several people straight out of high school without manufacturing experience at all simply because thay are related to someone and usually it's upper or middle management. Sunnen uses the good ole boy system. I my dept we're tried like children not adults. I have witnessed favortism,discrimination,harrassment and prejudice at the hands of one supervisor.
Pros
2 weeks paid vacation upon hire, paid christmas break
Cons
supervisors has a say to whether or not you're worthy of trainings or promotions

Want to be vested...work here!
Temp to hire employee (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOFebruary 20, 2013
Unique culture, family owned, world class engineering. You know your coworkers on a personal level. Each department has their own way to work and play! Each role is visible, regardless of title. In addition to your salary, you get to share in the company's profits annually. You could easily decide to retire from Sunnen!
Pros
relaxed environment, profit sharing, free on site medical dept
Cons
in a high traffic area
