    Pros

    The company is very supportive of personal time-off, flexible hours, and vacation time.

    Cons

    Decisions sometimes can take a while to be solidified - this as you can imagine can put off things that can be completed sooner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Steelcase as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    They value their employees, highlight culture and well-being, and are growing into a global enterprise. Their board, founders and leadership are heavily involved in the community. They are authentic and have great spaces to work. They also encourage remote working, making the integration of work and personal life more flexible. Young people love working here.

    Cons

    They have growing pains as they try to create a global enterprise, and a lot of effort goes into cultural understanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    doin' great. Listen to your mid-level management. They are in the trenches and know what's going on.

    A great place to work! Amazing people and exciting culture. Flexible work environment that allows employees to work in ways that support their lifestyle while still getting their work done in a constructive and healthy way.

    Cons

    At times professional development and ambition are seen as a drawback rather than an asset.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, company genuinely invests in our personal development as an employee. Wonderful people to work with. The company hires to a profile and is very good at it. You will find that when you begin working with a team everyone is vested in the common goal and more than helpful. You are never left out to hang. Jobs are not commission based.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot say say anything bad about this company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing
