Reviews

Company Culture

C

Support from management

Best to go it alone and hope for the best... don't tread in uncharted waters

Teamwork

Its talked about but the general consensus is that only golden kids get the benefits

Freedom to work independently

Depends on the department management ... there is a lot of micro management here

Internal Communication

very little corporate updates even when you work at corporate. For facility and production workers, even less.

Gender Equality

Theres a glass ceiling at this company, very few female leaders, tends to be the good old boys club

Attitude towards older colleagues

If you're a favorite, you're well off, if less than... well, not so much

Career Development

Used to be good, today, no investment in employee continuing education

Overall compensation for your work

mid range, just enough to say they are competitive

Office / Work Environment

call center atmosphere for corporate level employees, production level is even worse

Environmental Friendliness

squeak by on bare requirements

Work-Life Balance

Unheard of

Company Image

Family business...

Job Security

Not so much.... reliable, knowledgeable employees tend to be retired just before the required age and no thought to loss of knowledge is taken into consideration

Handicapped Accessibility

The handicapped access is lame, pretty much restricted to parking spots

Workplace Safety

Cant speak to this

Challenging Work

Because corners are cut there is a lot of fixing and band-aiding... definitely a challenge

Inclusive / Diverse

Its all about who you know, not what you know

Suggestions for improvement

  • Trim the unneeded top level management, there are way more chiefs than braves

What I like about the company

Location

What I dislike about the company

Current management style, it has gone from a highly moral and ethical company to one who only considers the bottom line and often takes unnecessary business risks

Suggestions for improvement

  • encourage texture and diversity of thinking and ideas; prioritize people and lessen the focus on the future of the family trust

What I like about the company

good 401k match

What I dislike about the company

the culture is awkward, unkind and intolerant of diverse thinking; talks/preaches and doesn't listen; hires managers who dictate

What I like about the company

The opportunity to work in many different roles. Fast paced and challenging. The products that the company manufactures make a big difference on the life of our customers.

What I dislike about the company

When market swings come, the company lets go of employee readily.
