    Nice place to work.

    Employee (Former Employee) Fort Wayne, IN (US)

    ProsThe people are friendly and helpful. Depending on whom you are working for, there is flexibility to handle things you need to do as they come up. Overall positive experience. Good quality products you can be proud of.

    ConsSome of the mid-level managers are disconnected from the people who end up doing the actual implementation of their desires/requirements. They still think too much like engineers and not enough like marketers. They have been slow to embrace new technology. No one wants to take ownership of their product line and be responsible for its representation to the public, even though the public is B2B.

    The new computerized skills assessment can do you in if you don't pay close attention.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmbrace the internet and current technologies. Pay attention to your marketing folks.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    just a job

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Oklahoma City, OK (US)

    Prosthe people at this facility are great. many of them are long time employees and no one knows their jobs better than they do

    Consthey are closing the plant but never made an announcement to the plant. They have simply moved one piece after another and stayed below the minimum federal required amount of people layed off that would force them to make an announcement.

    Advice to Senior Managementcome clean early on and don't make the entire organization worry for years about the future of the plant. make the announcement, pick the people you want to stay till the end and offer them bonuses if they do. let everyone else trickle off, we have pride in our work so the products would still be good.

    I really enjoyed working on the paintline.

    Unhanger On Paintline (Former Employee) Wilburton, OK (US)

    ProsIf a person is looking for fulltime work with excellent benefits, Franklin is the place to be. There are many learning opportunities within the factory for growth. The staff where I worked was very helpful, kind and considerate.

    ConsThere was not enough air conditioning in the department where I worked or the factory. It was very hot there in the summer time, especially on the paintline. The fans provided helped but, needs to be cooler.
               Wider rubber mats would also be helpful on the paintline floor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management has an excellent team of professionals that keep the company running smoothly. The incredible teamwork of all the workers and supervisors is what makes this Franklin Electric such a wonderful place to work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
