I worked at Nilfisk-Advance full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
New President hired a year ago whom seems like he honestly cares about all of the employees big and small.Cons
Employees are treated like disposable commodities.
Management and team leads are poor at best. Mean, cliquey, unappreciative of hard work done, an unsupportive team lead staff and a major lack of respect of the employees. Overworked employees assigned unrealistic amounts of work to be completed each day. A huge employee turnover in the Customer Care Department. Always short staffed making for a very stressed and unhappy work environment. Hard to use your vacation time and requests for time off are often denied.
Very behind in technology, applications, systems and very little training of new staff. Systems, phones and printers go down for hours at a time every day making it difficult to help the customers with their requests in a timely matter without falling behind.
2014 Health and Dental Insurance is majorly changing and are no longer considered "good" benefits. Think high deductibles, premiums and paying 50% of all bills.
Huge changes made all of the time in the Customer Care Department. Desks are always moving, teams being restructured, your reporting team lead changes often, management and jobs moved around, assigned daily duties change hands a lot and major processes and procedures are changed every day. Providing a very uncertain and unstable work environment.
No advancement opportunities and most promotions are given to the favorites, not the most qualified.
Large disconnect between management/leads and employees.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Consider the employees feedback, concerns and opinions on certain issues that will warrant a huge change for the department before making it. There is a danger in seeing employees as disposable commodities who can be tossed aside and replaced with ease. This is the reputation Nilfisk-Advance Customer Care Department and the HR Department has earned and proven. Respect is earned and not demanded because of a title. The hardworking dedicated and loyal employees earn it every day but management and lead staff demand it without earning it. Be willing to get to the core of the massive employee turn over and make the changes to correct it. Provide a more stable work environment and better work life balance for the employees. Keeping the department fully staffed to avoid excessive amounts of work and stress on the employees left. Treat the employee like you are lucky to have them not like they are lucky to have a job with Nilfisk.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
