Does Milwaukee Tool offer relocation assistance?

Pros

Milwaukee Tool provides great opportunities for a young professional seeking to grow and learn, while also offering challenging and interesting work in a constantly evolving industry of power tools. As a young engineer, I got plenty of meaningful work and was given substantial responsibility early on. This company knows how to balance fun with production! I also frequently use the on-site gym, cafe, and cafeteria, which are great perks.

Cons

Though the company offers a competitive and cost-effective overall benefits package, it does not offer any paternity leave.

Advice to Management

Continue to stay engaged with the personal and professional growth of your direct reports. Fostering an atmosphere where the emotional well-being of an employee is considered and noticeably valued is important to an employee's desire to produce meaningful work.

Does Milwaukee Tool offer massages?

Pros

Pays well. Advancement opportunities if you buy in to the "work hard / play hard" culture.

Cons

Work on the evenings (calls with China). Work hard play hard means, you will be yelled at in meetings but we drink a lot and have free coffee.

Advice to Management

It's amazing that a company this size runs on excel. It's only a matter of time before the "culture" catches up to Milwaukee Tool.

Does Milwaukee Tool offer dental insurance?

Pros

Very fast paced development cycle -- I've launched more product in 3 years than in all my previous jobs combined. Management has done a great job managing COVID-19 precautions, and supporting working from home. Great benefits (vision, dental, medical) Strong commitment to launching consistently quality products Large design team, lots of expertise Huge resources for professional development -- plenty of room for career growth

Cons

Keep an eye on your work-life balance. It can be hard to maintain boundaries in such a demanding work environment. Things can be a bit... macho, but it's hard to fault a powertool company for that Very little nice outdoor space available at the brookfield office. Plenty of room for a 20 acre parking lot, though Location, location, location -- Brookfield is a bit of an exurban dead-zone, so be prepared to commute from downtown MKE or Tosa if you want to be near any action. The company has grown a lot in the last few years, so there are lots of inexperienced people vying to make a mark, sometimes to the detriment of team efficiency.

Advice to Management

Build a parking garage, and some walking trails -- or open a downtown office.

Great benefits (vision, dental, medical)

Does Milwaukee Tool offer employee discounts?

Pros

Great learning experience, great co-workers, good benefits, and employee discount is nice. Working from home during covid.

Cons

Get ready to work crazy hours to please management. Night calls with China, really no work life balance.

Advice to Management

Most departments are a revolving door, hire new candidates out of college work them a lot of hours until they can't stand it anymore as they don't have free time and are working 60+ hours and they quit. This isn't Tesla..

workers, good benefits, and employee discount is nice.
