    I have been working at Federal Signal full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Average benefits. pretty decent pay when you're a union member.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to work hard when your neighbor does nothing but gets the same pay. I see alot of favortism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont fix whats not broke... Upper management doesn't realize how valuable some employee positions are and just start making un-needed changes and getting rid of people. In this day and age, its hard to see good people lose their jobs.

    Current Employee - Manufacturing/Assembly in University Park, IL

    I have been working at Federal Signal full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    good hours for salary people, never worked a weekend and very rarely you needed to stay late

    Cons

    no company direction as everybody is looking to meet the numbers, which are poorly calculated and forecasted anyway. Many union workers know how to play the game really well and they do just the minimal. Seems that a lot of people is there because they have enough seniority but almost no one shows a real desire to learn. Same thing with many salary employees, lack of professional attitude, engineers can work together and with others but supervisors are bad at disciplining people and following up. Schedulers don't even know how to create orders so everything is on a please-make-this system...I don't have time/send me an email are pretty common answers when you ask for help

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I guess the "healing" process would be a long and painful but they got to start some time and the sooner the better. Having a training and a disciplinary program that would allow employees to increase their knowledge and skills and the a system that would hold them accountable should be started.
