Good write-up but don't sell Lincoln short. I took an Ag welding course at Cornell & later attended a production welding seminar at Lincoln. The seminar was outstanding. You can't really appreciate Lincoln unless you've tasted their culture. The bottom line at Lincoln is all about the money. Everyone shares in the profits, everyone. There's really no 'caste system' like everyone else has. Back when I was there the year end bonus for the floor workers could be between 25k & 32k. No one stands around to shoot the bull or milk the water cooler. You can but it comes out of your bonus. You can even call the boss names if you want but it'll cost you points toward your bonus. Folks had multiple duties to keep things moving. And if you want to screw off it'll affect your co-workers & their bonus so you'll get heat from them. The facility is spartan to say the least because fancy trimmings come out of profits. There were no doors on the offices, even the plant manager, so you could walk on him in any time, not even a secretary outside his door to block you. No carpets or fancy wood desks, none. Really kind of refreshing after you've seen how other companies squander the profits for fluff. Really sharp people but focused on making profit for the year end bonus, no time to chit chat. One problem they had was keeping people, after working 4-5 years they would take the bonus money they accumulated and start their own business. Granted the neighborhood is really, really bad but I think they were there before that tanked. Too bad you couldn't take one of their seminars so you could a feel for what really goes on. See if you can find anything about their seminars. We did get to tour some of their production but they really value their trade secrets and many areas were off limits. And the workers were so intent on making product they never even looked up. A whole different philosophy on making money and what work should be. Sorry they seemed cool to you but they're all looking at the bottom line. A seminar could get you a better view than a lone tour. Best of luck to you Lanse as you enter a new phase of your life adventure. Remember to keep your stinger dry! joe-
