Eclipse Automation Employee Review
Fast paced and amazing team minded culture
Great place to work, people are always willing to work with you. Lots of great talent to learn from and different types of projects to dive into, from health to automotive. You get noticed for your hard work. The company strives to get ahead, even during slow times.

Long hours when busy, benefits could be better
Pros -Reasonable Hour Flexibility -Vacation time is not bad -co-workers are friendly -Not too bad of benefits (seen better for a company this size) Cons -Very Very Poor Compensation Wages are as bad as $6-7 per hour back in 1980's. I would have to work 6820 hours to buy a house back in that time. Now at my wage and for pure inflation of housing (not including housing boom)i have to work 17 037 hours.... it is more than double, that is not including the housing market boom. with the housing boom it goes to 27 778 hours.... it is impossible to live on the wage this company pays.. -Upper management withholds majority of profit sharing for large bonuses for themselves -poor management communication between departments -hierarchy is messed, very top heavy -no where to go in the company as they hire external before internal -New mechanical managers lack of knowledge in the area of their management -very very poor sick pay, (you get sick because you work minimum 44 hrs a week and you're drained and you're immunity is low (i start at 7 am, and i go home at 6-8pm depending on day) If you are sick, no pay, no compensation, nothing at all. you better use those vacation days that were meant for you family trip, because you wont get paid, but wait you wont get paid anyway... see next point… -Very poor vacation pay out. They will only pay your vacation at 2 points of the year. You can fill out a form to get paid during your vacation, but because you havnt accrued vacation yet there is no money in the account. When there is money in the vacation account, they pay it - more...
I left my last job to go to Eclipse due to the growth and culture shift away from caring about employees. Well, same story, different company. Except, at eclipse you only see ownership when they need something from you. Mechanical department was recently split in two. To be "better managed". The new managers are fine, but task driven and focused only on getting the job done. They don't use the designers to their strengths and that only causes more work. The hours are long and work life balance is non-existent. You're obligated to do 44 hours a week, but will be asked to do 60 regularly. You're told you matter, and then told there will be no profit sharing because ownership spent all the money. Ownership is untrustworthy and make you question what the point of each day is of you're working your butt off, not getting profit sharing, but the bosses are driving brand new cars.
Secure job through unsaddled growth
Untrustworthy ownership, long hours, no life balance only work.
I have been working here for approximately six months (started during the pandemic) and have really enjoyed my time. My manager has been very flexible with my schedule and being able to work remote when needed.
Flexible schedule, free premium snacks, great people
Long work week
