    I have been working at Tempur Sealy International full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Strong performers still exist within all levels of the workforce. The opportunity to become a very strong and promising company is evident, however the current decisions being made are entirely short term focused.

    Cons

    The company is building it's future like a sprint instead of a marathon for lasting success. Lack of true combined company teamwork is resulting in building the new company on a foundation of sand. Workload has doubled and sometimes tripled while headcount has steadily reduced. Outsource (Tempur) versus insource (Sealy) philosophies are clashing and continuously feed the internal "us vs them" work environment. Evidence of this can be found in the reviews listed on this site. The positives are primarily coming out of Tempur HQ located in Lexington from Tempur management members, while the negatives are primarily coming from Sealy locations around the country from multiple levels. Lots of talking, but little successful doing. The unfortunate truth is that this company has transformed into one that focuses only on the bottom line with less and less regard for the customer base and employee workforce. Lots of Directors and VP level managements personnel currently exploring opportunities with other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually involve subject matter experts and process owners when determining future combined company processes. Spending a lot of time implementing new combined processes by appointed project leaders who are "available" but lack the knowledge or qualifications that would be beneficial for long term success. The result is having to circle back to constantly correct the process on second and third attempts once the process owners point out issues. This is wasting time and money while creating internal conflict. Review the employee survey results and compare the opinions.

    I have been working at Tempur Sealy International full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Fair pay with good 401k and bonus program. Stress and negativity will out way the paycheck soon, as it has for many high quality staff that have left Tempur-Sealy for other company's in the past year.

    Cons

    Micro managing kills productivity. Hostile attitudes are rewarded. No ethics with staff. Work load has tripled, while benefits are being cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a culture overhaul, terminate director's and manager's that don't promote cooperation and teamwork. Consider a pier and staff review format.

    Pros

    mon-fri work schedule well it was when I worked for them.

    Cons

    Management constantly complaining about their loss of revenue and that it was due to the cost of employees wages and their benefits yet would drive back from Montana to Portland with an empty trailer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop talking about your kaizen principals and actually do some improvements that are needed instead of cutting pay and benefits due to the fact that is the easiest but only a short term fix

    Pros

    Reputable Brand and Growing Company

    Cons

    No real career track, compensation lousy, internal training ridiculously bad

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fight for your people who work hard to receive pay that reflects their hard work. Provide better training for your employees who want it, Mentor your direct employees so that they can move up in the company.

    Outstanding performance overlooked and unappreciated by senior executives for personal favorites.

    I worked at Tempur Sealy International

    Pros

    Would mention them if they existed.

    Cons

    MULTIPLE layoff rounds in last few years. Tenured employees fearful of their job stability with layoffs not based on performance. Employee are treated differently. Lexington based employees have some perks, other employees domestically and internationally do not receive (i.e. healthy living incentives, gym). Lack of Senior Management feedback to contribute and guide expressed internal growth.

    Pros

    Good product respected in the industry. Comfortable working condition. Good pay. Autonomous with minimal interaction. Easy interview to get the job.

    Cons

    Old school thinking in sales team promotions. Field "leaders" are All long tenured from other mattress companies with old ideas. Upper management from respected companies changing the company for the good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the changes coming. Glad we are acting like a public company unlike the past. Other manufacturers are creeping into our turf and appreciate efforts.

    Pros

    Good place to work if you must live and work in Lexington.

    Cons

    Small town mentality; no real corporate strategy; executives that couldn't make it anywhere else; product that needs to be pumped up through major marketing dollars in order to sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If management had any talent, wouldn't they be working someplace else? This is a small-time company that really has no place left to go.
