Electrical/Mechanical Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Bartlett, ILSeptember 14, 2015
I don't really have anything nice to say about this company or the management. The managements point of view is do as I say and not as I do. They are terrible to the good employees that are making this company profitable.

Potential to be an industry leader but lacks organization
Sales Engineer (Current Employee) –  Bartlett, ILJanuary 9, 2014
As a subsidiary of a German company Wittenstein suffers from an identity crisis. It regularly works with exciting high-tech products and industries and aspires to be included among the world's best.
At the same time management decisions consistently thwart development either through inaction or reinforcing barriers between functional departments.

Limited company size and entrenched management leave little opportunity for advancement.
Pros
Great Benefits
Cons
Lack of trust and empowerment
