worker (Current Employee) – Manchester, CT – February 11, 2019
The people who work in the plant and manage the day to day are great, but the Corporate suits are terrible. The board needs to look at all of them and do something about it. It's been going on way too long. This could be a great company if they got rid of most of the top-level management. But I know the board won't do anything to change it. Best part of my job was the people. Worst part of my job was upper level management.
Professional (Former Employee) – Massachusetts – November 25, 2018
There are too many layers of management at the corporate level. There are too many meetings making it difficult for local management to run their businesses. Local management for the most part is solid. This is a great place to get experience for professional level employees but not a place where you can grow a career.
Great local group of people who care about their work
Lots of oldtimers work there, they are not ready for a young and new diverse group to move forward.
Quality Manager (Former Employee) – Malden – September 16, 2018
Great pay, some great people. Not willing to move forward into the 21st century. Old machinery, and old philosophy. Over all the company lacks communication and leadership. Not willing to change to accommodate todays manufacturing practices. Politics play a roll.
Decent pay, some recognition to employees. Training program available.
No communication or leadership. No team atmosphere.
ive been working night shift for over a year. i have no supervisor to report to. lack of communication between shifts. management doesnt know what i do on a daily basis to even give me a proper work review. work load is always feast or famine. no production flow.
Manager (Former Employee) – Manchester, CT – May 9, 2018
I am appalled by the lack of intelligence and lack of uneducated managers that are in this location. Workers in the company are gracious and hard-working. However, rumors about previous layoffs and poor recognition of good work are very prominent in this company. Thus, everyone is scared to speak their mind and announce any creative ideas for doing business. If some of the managers could be replaced the company would be a great place to work. Leaders that have brains have no backbones and those with no brains are the ones calling all the shots. Pay was subpar and raises only come once a year.
Paradigm was a great place to make money. they had three shifts and always offered OT. The hourly wage was High there, and there were even machine operators in what we called the 100,000.00 dollar club meaning that they made lots of OT. i loved working there, had a great boss, and with so much work to do the days flew by.
OPS (Current Employee) – Stuart, FL – March 29, 2018
Pays well but you will earn every penny and less if your salary. Benefits were okay but not now. Time off is good but good luck taking it. Corporate changes all the time. Management changes but keeps the bad ones. The workers are good poleople
Machinist (Former Employee) – Peabody, MA – March 16, 2018
Ran seal tooth rings for Jet Engines. When possible was instructed to run Parpas machine. Our supervisor was not qualified to run manufacturing. He showed favorites to people he liked. The work place culture was slow, envious and jealous. Hardest part of this place is trying to get training on other machines. Most enjoyable part was long runs on parts.
Machinist (Current Employee) – Stuart, FL – March 11, 2018
Not a bad place to work. Wages are 30% less than they should be. I have no other complainants than these. Work with new machinery and good tooling. Fixturing could be better. Management is fair. Once you get stuck on an off shift there is no moment to a better one. Day shift is out of reach for most trades.
Quality Control Engineer (Former Employee) – Manchester, CT – January 18, 2018
This is an average Company, challenges to overcome in teaming and atmosphere, MRB issues to overcome, Long Work Days, High Expectations with insufficient time for the amount of work required along with the accuracy required. Information should be readily organized and available must be searched for. Most of workforce are good people, with a few people who consistently run to tell tales. Company would improve greatly with better communication and cooperation. This is not a bad company to work for it will challenge you for all your ability. If an employee is in a QE position for more than a year they will adapt.
IT USER AND NETWORK SUPPORT SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Stuart, FL – January 7, 2018
The job activities are not unreasonably challenging but often appear daunting because of the management style that prevails. There is often some level of preferential treatment in regards to training and advancement.
The work is fulfilling in the sense that there are several challenges ranging from internal IT related issues to a combination of IT/Production issues. The environment is dynamic and conducive to developing problem solving skills
Several promises are made regarding the opportunity for training but those opportunities are provided for some more than others. Management is centralized to another location leaving some areas without reasonable responses to important issues.
There is little scope for advancement due to organizational structure and the encouragement to personal growth and development through continued education and training.
