Terrible place to work
Group Leader (Former Employee) –  Leeds, ALAugust 16, 2018
Hubbell is a racist place to work. If a black man or woman speak up for there self, they will make something up on you and fire you. There are no black managment on the plant floor at all, and for a company that be big that is ridiculous. The company only thinks about profits. Management gets quarterly bonuses for doing nothing while the floor workers gets nothing and we do all the work.
Pros
None
Cons
You burn up in the winter and you freeze in the winter

Terrible company to work for
Plant Manager (Former Employee) –  Boonton, NJJuly 27, 2018
I worked and was an officer of the company {RFL} prior to being acquired by Hubbell and was asked to remain during the transition. It was immediately apparent the the reason for their want for me to stay was simply insurance and that they did not consider my retention permanent.

Good Compensation but corporate micro-manages
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Centralia, MOJuly 23, 2018
Has become too big, acquired too many companies and doesn't align them to all one process. Procedures went from 5-10 pages in length to over 60 in the span of a couple of years. Constant additional products and workload added. Additional freedom/trust and more work from home capabilities would improve morale.
Pros
Good compensation
Cons
Bad work environment

More difficult than it needs to be.
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Leeds, ALJuly 19, 2018
To many people have access to the production floor. They don't utilize the systems in place and therefore, too many emails have to be addressed. Zero tolerance safety policy.

Used to be a fun place to work.
Junior Buyer (Former Employee) –  Freeburg, ILJuly 18, 2018
Management changed and it went down hill from there. You rarely saw upper management and when I was told I was being let go, it was done via telephone conversation from a person I am told was manager but never had he bothered to introduce himself to me. Should have known then that job was in jeopardy.

Not a place you want to work
Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Aiken, SCJuly 14, 2018
I can't think of a good reason to work here. There are Layoffs, Management is horrible. Dirty and old place to work. Watch your back. Pay is ok. Promotion comes to those who work 70+ hours a week uncompensated.
Pros
Sorry

Worst Place I Have Ever Worked- Management is two-faced and horrible
Manager (Former Employee) –  Elgin, ILJuly 12, 2018
Warning!!! Don’t work here unless you want to work under the worst management possible. Management is two-faced and talk about other employees behind their backs. No work life balance whatsoever. People are over-worked and not appreciated. If I could give a negative star rating I would. Look elsewhere if you want to remain sane!
Pros
No pros
Cons
Having to go there every day

Good co-workers. Poor management
Smo (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NHJuly 11, 2018
Co-workers are great to work with. Management will push you until you break, scheduled Saturdays, unwilling to fix payroll issues that are over 6 months old, make you run machines that you were not hired to run so the company can save a dollar. If you shut a machine down because it has an issue with the program you are told to run it anyway but pay more attention to it, even though the program changes while it is running. You also have to remember to keep your other machines running or risk getting yelled at by a supervisor who cares about making product not quality product.
Pros
Co-workers are great
Cons
Expensive insurance, excessive scheduled Saturdays

Winsted Electric Motion/Hubbell Power Systems
Worker (Former Employee) –  Winsted, CTJuly 6, 2018
It was a good place to work, until Hubbell bought it.
It was quiet for two years while they were mismanaging it, then it caught up with them.
Revenue down, customers fleeing, management unable to make a decision while the world burned.

They will either pull out of their death spiral, or will cut their losses and close up.

Embarrassing for them.

No stability, don't waste your time.
Pros
They pay you money for work. Decent 401k, although not a good health plan.
Cons
Unstable situation. Focus on small things while ignoring the big problems.

Hard work and underpaid for environment.
concrete caster (Former Employee) –  Lenoir City, TNJune 30, 2018
Working in a non climate controlled facility. Can be extremely hot in summer and really cold in winter. Work is terrible as exposed to harmful chemicals. Breathing in harmful chemicals and dust all day. Pay is decent, but the work is extremely exhausting and can be dangerous.

Very unprofessional organization
Finance Director (Former Employee) –  Shelton, CTJune 30, 2018
Upper management is only concerned with themselves. Below Director positions should only be treated as temporary. Its not what you know but who u know. Its sad to see people getting a director title b/c they know someone in upper management.
Pros
Some people are normal
Cons
Unprofessional and incompetent upper management

Do Not Work Here
Finance Department (Former Employee) –  Shelton, CTJune 29, 2018
Do not work at Hubbell. The work to life balance is non existent, employees are not given any respect (if you want respect you better be willing to kiss some booty) and with that said, promotions are treated the same way. If you aren't in the "club", you will never get anywhere within the company. The company used to actually care about their employees but now jobs are being either shipped out to India or they are forcing employees to relocate to Greenville, South Carolina to keep their job. Management is also clueless.

Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Shelton, CTJune 29, 2018
Hubbell is a great company to work for provided you ring the bell year in and year out. Very performance driven culture where no one is irreplaceable. Excellent training and opportunity for advancement. Shareholder value is top priority and is the driving factor behind most decisions.

Project Technician (Current Employee) –  Aiken, SC 29801June 28, 2018
A good company to work for. The facility is in the process of acquiring new automated machinery and robotics. For a Maintenance professional, this would be a great job.

Plenty of hours but horrible management
Assembler/Production (Current Employee) –  Archdale, NCJune 24, 2018
For production it is surprisingly a very slow pace job with long hours. You can forget about any kind of home life. Management is not very good. They would rather ignore problems than fix it. Pay raise is nearly impossible except maybe a couple of cents each year while they ask more and more of their employees. Very hard to move up in company, they rather hire from the outside instead of promoting employees that have been there for years and already know the job. It's not worth all the hours and lack of pay.
Pros
Plenty of breaks, quiet place
Cons
Too many to list

Hard place to enjoy a job!
Tech II (Current Employee) –  Arden, NCJune 20, 2018
Employees are treated like a puppet on a string, not allowed to have their own personal opinions, some days not enough work on the floor for employees, if you had vacation time, you could use that for "Lack of work" workers are at stand up jobs only, sometimes unbearable heat and not allowed to have water at workstations. Folks with seniority talked to and treated "Temps as nobodies" Senior people have also been known to physically push,spit and reprimand as well as,refuse to properly train other workers as if they were less desirable. Lead people post things on Facebook that is demeaning and cruel about what goes on inside the facility.
Upper management has been know to reprimand employees for using a confidential employee hotline, informing folks that you're not to call the hotline, but report directly to HR of any concerns.

Clueless management
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Leeds, ALJune 5, 2018
Lazy supervision that will allow the department to get behind, example if someone is off he will sit in the office and watch you get behind rather than chip in. Upper management is clueless and could care less about the employee other than implementing ways to get rid of you and bring in someone new.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Management is against the employee
