    I worked at Husky Injection Molding Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The benefits are spectacular, even after the layoffs and the cuts, still better than many places that I have worked. The on-site daycare is amazing, and the food is great. On-site gym and massage therapist. Like acting or politics, if you make it there, you have a good life. Also like acting, for every success story, there's dozens of failure stories.

    Cons

    It's the most dysfunctional, political, numbers-driven place I've ever been. Day 1 you sign a waiver to exceed the provincial max for overtime. If you don't, start looking for another job. A very strict environment, be at your desk early or get written up. Use that on-site massage therapist and it goes overtime? Get written up. 4-hour meeting with 30 people in a small room with the door closed, so you excuse yourself...

    Advice to Management

    No advice, nobody could ever change that place. The values portrayed in the company literature are skin deep and only for show.

    I worked at Husky Injection Molding Systems full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The people at Husky make the experience rich, fulfilling and worth it. There is some flexibility in hours, a strong culture of achievers, good work ethics, an emphasis on health & wellness and plenty of roles to keep you motivated when you're ready to move laterally or upwards.

    Cons

    Stressful at times, lots of focus on cost-containment as a priority and less emphasis on environment and corporate social responsibility over the last few years.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that the environment and planet are here for the long run. Let's do our part to protect them and push the products that are right for the future.

    I worked at Husky Injection Molding Systems full-time

    Pros

    Clean environment that provides all tooling. Some employee incentives.

    Cons

    Supervisors have no background in machining yet still try to tell you how the work should be getting done in some cases.

    Advice to Management

    Value the shop floor workers who are skilled. Management still very top heavy company.

    I worked at Husky Injection Molding Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None. Might be a pro in other areas but finance department is pretty outdated in its approach and methodology.

    Cons

    Old people hence old methodology and approach towards work. People questioning and challenging new ways to look at the issue are either undermined or kicked out.

    Advice to Management

    Total transformation of the way to look in the accounting and finance function within the entity utterly needed. This is not how finance works in the new world.

      Pros

      Good people. Hard workers.

      Cons

      So much change in the last few years, not for the better. So many cuts, you don't know what's next. Not a lot of transparency.
