    I have been working at Hendrickson full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good forward-thinking executive leadership. Good comparative pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Department management could use some significant improvement. Give the impression that they are more often concerned with "checking the box" and creating a paper trail than actually implementing and/or following through with meaningful policies or procedures. "Stepping over dollars to save dimes" would epitomize maintenance procedures. Completely reactive in nature. Essentially no major maintenance carried out on essential testing equipment at proper intervals. Getting to the point where personnel safety is a rapidly growing concern. 5S is a buzzword that is thrown around by dept. management when extolling dept. values, but in practice is severely lacking.

    Cyclical industry, during the good times, they are really good. On downturns, they do what they have to do.

    I worked at Hendrickson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Culture was excellent, everyone was very friendly. Travel was minimal but sufficient to be fun. Great work and always busy enough, never overwhelmed.

    Cons

    Sometimes the testing requirements could be sporadic if the design team needed to change direction quickly.
