    IT

    IT Specialist (Former Employee)
    Archdale, NC

    ProsNice people to work with, great benefits on mattress discounts

    ConsLack of funding for needed training to keep current with IT Technologies

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend a little more time knowing what IT is doing. Focus on the outcome of projects and determine in advance the cost/benefit of projects. Support employee training, training is less expensive than trying to learn a new system without training and reduces errors.

    Overall good place to work

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Trinity, NC

    ProsThe best reason to work at Sealy is the the people. Overall Sealy Inc is a great place to work.

    ConsOne of the downsides of working at Sealy is the every day attire requirements. Business dress is a requirement for every day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFeedback for leadership at Sealy is to provide more flexibility to employees in terms of business attire and hours worked.

    Never Slept (On A Sealy) While On The Job

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros1) Working with dedicated colleagues.
    2) Camaraderie among the Sealy Team.
    3) Plant Operations a strength with a lot of body knowledge and experience.
    4) Sales & Marketing driven Co.

    Cons1) Sales & Marketing driven Co.
    2) Hiring of educated professionals that are book smart, but lacking the experience, wisdom, and common sense.
    3) Political environment at Sealy Corp.; turf battles between different parts of the organization.

    Advice to Senior Management1) Hire people that are not only educated, but with practical experience. Train them to learn the Sealy business before allow them to apply their trade.
    2) Develop overall business plan to synchonize each department to work as one, instead of Purchasing doing cost savings that ends up costing loss in efficiency to Operations due to poor implementation, parts not fitting, or equipment going down because things were overlooked.
    3) Operations Team (Plant Management) is where the money is made: Sales ink the deal and book the orders, Operations deliver and bring home the proceeds in the end.

    Overall, a good place to work

    Sales (Current Employee)

    ProsYou are afforded the flexibility to manage your time as you see fit so long as your work is completed.

    ConsYou are required to be a very strong self-starter. With corporate offices being in Toronto, you have to keep yourself organized and motivated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStay more transparent with your sales team! We have to feel like we're trusted and respected in order to be fully competent.
