    I worked at Parco, Inc. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Health insurance is ok, employees are team oriented and helpful

    Cons

    The president is a bully who cannot stand when his employees are getting along and working together to run his company. There always has to be ONE person who is picked out, picked on, bullied and either fired or harassed enough that they quit. The workload is insane and if you say you are stressed, you will be punished. You are only allowed to be happy and tell him how wonderful Parco is. I don't know one single employee who enjoys working there. The turnover is HUGE!! The HR dept keeps quitting because they have morals and cannot stand to fire people who have families to support. If you are not a manager, you are nothing. If you don't have a degree, you are nothing. Lies and politics run Parco. Upper management does not listen to other employees, you are not able to voice your opinion or ideas on how to better your dept or the overall working environment. There is no promotions from within. The people who have been there the longest are still stuck in the same dead end positions with no chance for a raise, bonus or promotion. Horrible place to work. Stress, aggravation and being brought down are the only things you will get out of working at Parco.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, promote from within, stop the harassment

    I worked at Parco, Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company manufactures rubber products for several major industries. Its business is very stable and profitable. The product lifecycle is usually very long and that makes for an excellent work-life-balance working there.

    Cons

    The company has essentially no communications. Every decision is dominated by the top executives. They perceive the communication between line workers as “non-value-added activity” and explicitly tell people not to have meetings. Most of the employees have learned to shut up in the company because voicing their opinion doesn’t go anywhere, and will only get them into trouble.

    Besides lack of communication, there is a lot of fear working in every job position. The top executives don’t value human capital at all and anyone is replaceable in their eyes. If you don’t want to live in that fear, don’t come and work in Parco.

    The work environment is not only dirty but also dangerous in certain work stations of the plant. The executives are hesitant to make improvements if it doesn’t improve the productivity, since it will only cost them money. The workers compensation in the company is really low in comparison to industry peers, but it doesn’t mean there are no work related injuries in the company. Most of the factory workers are Hispanic and are afraid if they report their injury, they will be fired. Hence, when those employees get injured, they take care of the injury without reporting. The company is well aware of that. Yet, they do nothing.

    One last thing I would like to mention is the weird relationship between the top executives. Their relationship manipulates a lot of the politics in the company. They pay most management staff with lucrative salary hoping for obedience or they will be out. Other managers and executives sometimes do have their own ideas, yet they choose to shut up because the pay is good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Each employee has aspirations and dignity. If you treat them with respect, your business will be much better.
