"Managing people and getting them to work together in a common goal to create new products and change the way people perform their daily grind is an extremely rewarding experience. Technology opens up so many opportunities and being able to leverage that to help people get work done is a great challenge and one that I hope I will be able to perform for some time. It's hard to image doing anything else."

Product Development Manager at VGC Unlimited
in Costa Mesa, CA

"I love owning my own business - but it's extremely stressful. Your livelihood and the livelihoods of other people and their families rest on your shoulders - they're not guaranteed. It's a tough gig. Maintaining the right attitude, and surrounding yourself with the right people makes it a lot easier, and in the end, it's all worth it. I love product development because it lets me use my creative side and my analytical/technical side together to make ideas into real things that people use."

"The product line is exciting and at times innovative and fun to work on"

"if you are in need for a pay check then you may want to consider this company as a short term fill in. But do not leave a current position to work here, As stated the turn over rate is extremely high"

What don't you like about working at Hampton Forge?

"the owner belittles and verbally abuses the employees. the turn over is very high. You are constantly training new people only to see them fired or quit. The hours are very long and since everyone is listed as salary, there is no additional pay for after hours or weekend work. The meetings are never ending and counter productive. The decisions by the owner are ever changing making project management a nightmare"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"cease running the company on fear. It is not a motivational tool. Being under constant threat of being fired is counter productive and just plain wrong"

As a private equity company, they buy and sell companies that require debt covenants. Although the debt they incur is not directly related to my current company, but to comply with other covenants and financial obligations the investors use our cash flow for other areas... basically the capital is not invested back into the organization I work for. Due to the current economy, these obligations are impacting opportunities and growth at the company."
