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

    Pros

    Regular work hours, good pay(unless you're union hired after the last contract), insurance, 401k, paid vacations

    Cons

    This company adheres to the low moral standards that are common in corporate America today. (Greed before people)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why bother offering suggestions to a body that never really listens anyway

    I have been working at Federal Signal full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    People at the plant level are great and through some of the ranks. Old leadership really cared and knew something about everyone. Over years, senior leadership driven by the dollar vs social responsibility of the people who they effect.

    Cons

    Company goes thru periods when really good but lots of change and hard to hold onto good talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are your most important peice of business
