Never (Current Employee) – Massachusetts – July 31, 2018
They "promote" women but never to the level of men. look at their Marketing Department. It's all women, except for the VP. The Operations Manager was fired and replaced with a woman they "promoted" from a secretary to an "Operations Coordinator". Total joke. Examples abound. I can't wait to leave.
A great company to work for that really cares about it's employees!

I joined Lenze a few years ago and have not been happier with my choice. There are a lot of career growth opportunities, and the ability to learn new things. The culture has a family feel, promoting work/life balance. I will not be leaving any time soon!

I am surprised they have not made the national news for the way they treat woman in the workplace. The shop floor is a good old boys club and they promote based on looks not abilities. two of the supervisors where discussing their hot tub list of the woman in production when they realized I could hear them they walked away. Anyone that complains to HR is later fired so everyone is afraid and no one speaks up

Lenze has been a wonderful company to work for. Management is comprised of a number of caring individuals who want their employees to succeed, and employees are invested in given the tools to do so. Compensation and benefits are extremely competitive within the market. Employee engagement activities are plentiful and expertly planned. The company is focused on technology and staying modern, allowing employees to have everything necessary to complete their jobs. The culture is one of continuous improvement, advancement and collaboration.
Lead (Current Employee) – Glendale Heights, IL – September 11, 2017
The building has had 3 different plant managers and 3 different directors in only 5 years...there's more turnover in the management than on the floor. They are clueless to the actual operations of the building and manage on the theme of overburdening people with too many responsibilities without any support what-so-ever. Afraid I'll lose my job if I don't "play along", otherwise I will tell them how I really feel. The company as a whole is very good, and the people I currently work with are great, although we lost a lot of good people as well who left because of the management. Can't foresee this plant lasting for long.
worked all day stressing if im gonna have a job the following week
TEAM LEAD (Current Employee) – Glendale Heights, IL – August 29, 2017
management left you alone and did not try to help in any way possible to make the job less stressful. i was left in the dark most of the time. they expected me to just know what was going on with the materials we need to build the units. overall i cant work there anymore. need job security.
Production Planner (Former Employee) – Uxbridge, MA – August 10, 2017
A typical work day is busy and at some times challenging. Communication is something that needs to be worked on. I learned many things while working there and was able to advance but I know many employees that have applied for advancement jobs and have been denied up to four times.No matter how well you do your job they will fire you if they don't like you.
Regional Sales Engineer (Former Employee) – Uxbridge, MA – April 7, 2017
I enjoyed working for Lenze but too much personnel turnover and layoffs. Also, there are plenty of disconnects between Germany and Lenze Americas, which make it cumbersome for customers to get support and timely shipments.
cumbersome for customers to deal with Lenze or get tech support.

there is no respect for employees at lenze. the person to sucks up the most gets promoted and put in charge of projects they have no idea how to handle. don't expect any respect or accomodation for you life, even emergencies.
Operations Employee (Current Employee) – Uxbridge, MA – August 9, 2016
Lenze Americas is a company that needs to focus on defining sales goals and increasing business. Currently, there is no CEO to help with that focus. There is also not much opportunity for advancement within the company.
customer service (Former Employee) – Uxbridge, MA – November 9, 2015
The company is understaffed so employees are expected to do their job as well as that of others. It's overwhelming and asking questions is discouraged. Employees are expected to figure out what they need to do by trial and error, yet they are penalized when errors are made and there are no instructions or manuals to refer to. It's very frustrating. Also, the culture is very much an 'old boys club'. and either you're in with the old boys or you're treated as an outsider and marginalized. There are many people there who are very unhappy but feel stuck.
Assembly (Former Employee) – Uxbridge, MA – September 10, 2015
I have a very great feeling to work at Lenze America. I have many chances to learn something new so that I can involve myself to some fields of the company at production floor. On the other hand, I always get very warm welcome from Manager, Supervisor, leaders and team works. And the basic and strong skill that I have experienced with this company is to build all kinds of electronic boars. However, I also know how to do some job at other departments such as Motec, Drive (SMV) and SMT area.
