Great Coworkers and a great expirence
General Accountant (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHNovember 24, 2014
Fives North American has been a wonderful place to work over the last 7 years. I have learned many things from my coworkers and superiors on how to function in an accounting department of a manufacturing company. I have learned and have experience in consolidations, accounting for foreign currency transactions, payables, fixed assets and have been helping in the budget process the last few years. Fives is a company that was purchased by a foreign company during my career so I have had to be much more proactive in communicating with other companies for intercompany transactions. I am thankful for my time working with these people as they have helped mold me into the professional I am today.
Pros
good coworkers, great experience
Cons
no room for advancement

Sales / Engineer (Current Employee) –  North Canton, OHJune 11, 2014
Draining days of mental exertion. Multi-hat environment looking to overuse ones abilities. Co-workers are good to work with and supportive. Most enjoyable part of job is helping customers achieve their goals along with achieving my companies goals.
Management gray in goals of operation and future. Hardest part of job is fnding direction to my position from administrative leadership.

Travel opportunities, and large connection to international options
Electrical Support Engineer (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYMarch 17, 2014
Office work could drag, but was often dynamic. A recent change in management is bringing in a lot of new policies and changes.

Lots of opportunity for travel, and to expand skills with business as well as technology.

The work environment is loosely professional but can remain bland at times.

Although some of the tasks have been mundane and essentially pointless, there have been several opportunities to excel. This being said, they are appreciative of effort, but don't seem to have any intention of rewarding it.
Pros
Laid back environment, close to campus, good benefits
Cons
Low pay compared to competitors, lack of adequate organization and technology
