HID Global is an ever growing organization. It is a company of acquisitions and continuously looks to expand their portfolio. With that, they become clouded and starting to become more top heavy which in my experience, is not a good thing. Although they are leading in several emerging markets they certainly have their share of flaws. The work environment is actually pretty good. Even with all the restructuring the stress level is relatively mild. Just as any company, you have certain people that can elevate that at any moment but the workload, for me, is manageable. Management at HID seems to be engaged with ideas of Process Improvements, whether it be from an operator or an engineer, if you have an idea to make things better...they will listen. In most cases, if you are not what management considers to be a "credible" source then chances are, those ideas are just heard and not acted out. People like to take credit for improvement ideas around here so documentation is key. HR department is probably one of the worst I have seen at any company. Open door policy is only two hours a week, specific time slots on specific days. They do not promote internal requisitions to all employees therefore opportunities for growth is limited. Benefits are decent and the pay is mediocre depending on job title. Production personnel is expected to work as necessary and in most cases, overtime is essential to meet fluctuating business demands.
Benefits, People, Stress Free, Overall Atmosphere
Low opportunity for growth, Not much incentive to go above and beyond daily duties
