    I have been working at Taylor-Guitars full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Taylor is filled with a very talented, dedicated and driven work force. Most of the people that work here are the kind of people you want as neighbors and friends. The business is good, it's a relatively uncomplicated product that produces great revenue and is part of a market that is in the business of bringing contentment to peoples lives. There is a lot to like about certain aspects of this company.

    Cons

    Taylor is growing, and not wiser with age. Like many businesses that grow the company has become more focused on it's ability to sell guitars than it's ability to produce them. Management is erratic, in some groups it is absent, in others it is dictatorial. There is no consistency. Much of the entire company operates off of tribal knowledge and rarely are support needs planned for or met. If you are wanting to make a competitive wage this will not likely be the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized. Consider your workforce capabilities. Recognize that some people do not have the skills to manage but are great at what they do. Do this real time, nobody benefits from management dragging their feet. Become clear on your objectives, all of them and let the people who are doing the work know what those are. Value peoples skill sets and education, even if they aren't focused on Luthiery or music. For HR, recognize dysfunctional management and eliminate it before it becomes more toxic.
