Hope and Change

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Fayetteville, TN

I have been working at Goodman Manufacturing full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe Fayetteville, TN facility has a new plant manager now and their focus appears to be changing from a harsh and unfeeling management style to a more enjoyable and rewarding place to work. The general employee outlook is much more positive than in years and hopefully the improvements we're seeing will continue. Time will tell just how far the improvements will go, but for now we seem to be headed in the right direction.

ConsThere still remains much of the old management ways and it'll take time to excise them. Quality is improving but years of indifference and neglect will take time to reverse. Many bad habits remain, but hopefully the new management will see and correct them. Some supervisors still have the old harsh attitude toward employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate your employees and respect them. Praise will bring you greater rewards than punishment.

Old processes but great company

Branch Manager (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

I have been working at Goodman Manufacturing full-time for less than a year

ProsGreat people both internally and externally.

ConsOld, old, and inefficient processes, do we really need 3 full sheets of paper for a single order. Need to streamline logistics and barcode every piece of merchandise.

Advice to Senior ManagementI really like the streamlined management theory, few chiefs and plenty of indians, sorry for the pun.
