Great Place for those willing to sacrifice
Software Controls Engineer - Level 1 (Former Employee) –  Mason, OH8 September 2016
Engineers work hard and can put in a lot of time on-site. Time spent in the office can be slow and boring when starting out, which is in stark contrast to how things flow when a project is gearing up.

If you can do the travel (20-80%), this is a great job which can challenge you.
Pros
Quiet campus, genuine management, refined, innovative product
Cons
Work life balance can be bad when working on-site, OT pay is lackluster.

Zero Work life balance and poor upper managment
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Mason, OH10 March 2016
The project teams are sent to project sites for months at a time with maybe a weekend or two off a month. The days are long usually 10-12 when onsite which is somewhere between 50-80% of the year.
The sales and concerting groups cut every corner they can which usually ends up trickling down on the engineers to fix the problems and get reprimanded when the physical system doesn't perform to the theoretical max. No incentive to do better since no matter how good and under budget you are on a project you will get the same 2% "profit share" bonus each year. The Upper management cares only about quantity of projects and the Quality of the work has been cut dramatically due to tighter schedules and rushed designs.
Pros
Co workers are great people
Cons
Management, No work/Life balance, Long hours, and Below average compensation.

Indecisive and inconsistant
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  West Chester, OH26 August 2016
The company will go through spells where you practically live in the building. Then out of nowhere work dries up and offer volunteer time off. The benefits are minimal. Advancement in the company is very hard to achieve.

Could be better, could be worse, depnds on location.
Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MO16 August 2016
Depends on the location of Intelligrated that you work at. I was at the St. Louis location and though the work/life balance there was ok, this location is more or less an ugly step child to the other locations. That said it is the most lean/best run location which makes it a bit of a paradox. I find it increasingly frustrating how no money is expended on this location compared with the other 3 sister locations. All that said, the stress level at work is reasonably low and there are a handful of interesting projects that I am involved in. Depends on your job title, and location, but overall could be better places to work and there are definitely worse.

Just like any other construction site
Inventory Production Specialist (Current Employee) –  Mason, OH27 August 2016
They claim to have a company that supports the need for a healthy work-life balance and provides opportunities for continuous learning and personal growth. However, they are just out to get the job done in a very hurried schedule with no regard to any balance.
Pros
Lots of Overtime
Cons

Have definitely work better places
Installer/Technician (Former Employee) –  Ohio22 July 2016
This was my first commercial job. I've always done commercial work and I just thinking about intellagrade as you're inside know right now it's your money is always there. The worst thing about it is instead of hiring a 30 guys that know what they're doing and give them real journeyman pay they will hire 75 guys thats barely capable of driving a car to work and over pay them then constantly get on the leads because not enough being done.
Pros
No rain outs
Cons
Butt chewing every morning. Leads and journeyman underpaid

Fast Growing Company with a touch of chaos
Controls Engineer (Current Employee) –  Mason, OH25 August 2015
Office hours are minimal in this job. Most of the work is done in distribution centers around the US and some Internationally. If you enjoy traveling and don't mind being gone 3 out of 4 weeks at times then you would enjoy this company. The culture is a bit outdated and feels like an 80's workplace. The company does offer solid benefits and average pay ranges. The industry is growing quickly and will have stability for many years.
Pros
Overtime, good benefits
Cons
Lots of travel, work hours vary based on the job.

Wonderful place to be, an organization filled with great people!
Supervisor, Mechanical Engineering (Current Employee) –  Mason, OH1 April 2014
It is a pleasure to work at Intelligrated where every day offers the opportunity to work with wonderful Engineers who are both knowledgable and passionate about designing great automated material handling systems. Very customer oriented company with a sound Project Management system in place to maintain project integrity. Very well qualified Management at the helm with a clear succession plan. Hardest part of the job is dealing with dynamic customer base and some mediocre technology in some areas.
Pros
Good work/life balance, good customers and a great cafeteria serving breakfast, lunch and take home dinner
Cons
Some weak areas of technology regarding proprietary CAD system, ERP and PM Systems

Good company to work for with growing pains
Electrical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Mason, OH30 January 2014
Overall, Intelligrated is a good company to work for with fair compensation. A typical week in the office consisted on meetings, document/drawing/schematic creation with scheduled deadlines and deliverables. A typical week on a job site always varied depending on location and time of year.

I learned about a variety of products and communiations such as AB, Wago, Schneider, Profibus, Devicenet, and Controlnet in both PC and PLC controlled systems.

I got along great with my immediate bosses but I didn't have as much of a relationship with upper management because I was not in a position to see them on a regular basis so it is hard for me to comment on the overall management.

The hardest part of the job was hitting a schedule with a moving target of deliverables because of repeated customer changes. It can be done and has been done but it can be a painful process.

The most enjoyable part of the job would be knowing that I was contributing in the design for the material handling needs of big name companies. I always thought that was a pretty cool feeling.
Pros
Get to work with a lot of different technologies
Cons
Company growing pains

Program/Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Mason, OH4 June 2015
Poor middle management. Employee work/life balance is poor. The company is only concerned about it's bottom line and not the well-being of those who work there.

Recruiting Process incompetent and rude
Sales (Former Employee) –  Mason, OH25 August 2013
I'm used to HR departments being somewhat useless, but Intelligrated takes the cake for the worst of the worst. A close associate of mine recently interviewed for a role at Intelligrated and was brought in for 3 rounds of interviews. Each time the promise of "we're looking to make a decision soon" was given. After a few weeks, a professional follow-up phone call would be made, only to be given a rude "we'll get back to you in a couple weeks" response. Months later, after another follow-up call they told my friend that "they are not filling the role now, but may in the future". It was very clear that their HR department was completely incompetent, not at all aware of average salary levels for given job titles. It's doubtful that things will change at Intelligrated...when you refer to their website and see their bloated "Leadership team", which consists of 22 white males.
Pros
none
Cons
lack of diversity, lack of respect for candidates
