    Pros

    Management is willing to do whatever it takes to succeed - except doing what it really takes. There are good people here in Seattle and they all see what is really happening. Field, Service Technicians and Reps are a wealth of knowledge that management should really, and needs to listen too, but do not. Cheers to all the Seattle Folks for sticking it out. Keep your heads down and BE SAFE~!

    Cons

    THINK TWICE BEFORE WORKING FOR THIS COMPANY! The newer the online review the worse they get. Success in the eyes of this company's management, for PNW region as well, is only to make the numbers work by by cost cutting everything they can and not doing what is really needed to increase sales and succeed. Employees are a wealth of knowledge but upper management does not have guts to trust and depend on them. Overhead is too high and prices are the highest in the industry. Competition is growing and getting tougher so cutting short term costs at the lower end does not help in the long run. But for management it's only all about the numbers and there is NO loyalty to employees that give their best. It's all about transferring blame to the numbers and cutting costs to make their foggy snoggin numbers look good. Just watch and when management starts hiring, right after they were firing to "cut costs", then we all know it's was about covering their own tails and transferring blame. Here are the BEST excepts from all the other Simplex reviews I agree with: "The service department has been taken out of the hands of service background people and put into the hands of bean counters". It's MONEY BALL except no cuts for upper management. " 'The Do No Harm' Campaign is really a '3-strikes you're out rule'. Don't get hurt on the job here at Simplex or you will be SOL". "Customer base is drying up quickly; few to no leads - lots of cancellations. Trust the many professionals you have on staff and empower them; you've erased all incentive." "They attempt to micromanage us through a central dispatch system known a the "Service Resource Center" (SRC) and GPS, but they aren't even very good at that. Customers are frustrated by our high prices and by the SRC. Local management has limited ability to make things any better for their employees. Raises are either non-existent or very low. " " Those service techs, sales folks, installation crews, ARE THE FACE OF THE COMPANY! And let's be clear about this, SimplexGrinnell is the most expensive company out there, ..."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To Management,... Don't even send out those ridiculous "Vital Values" e-mails about the ethics & value-culture of the company when you DO NOT follow them or would not give credit to your own employees for doing good things! " Recent e-mails sent out by management about how many people in a company are "JUST THERE FOR A PAYCHECK" , really dudes? Reality Check! Read the reviews on this site and you will see why people have given up hope for making SG a better company! SO, now do you see why people have lost their trust in $100K+ management and and are just hanging in there for their piddly little paychecks. "The management should realize that they need to treat people who work for them more as assets instead of liabilities."

    My advice to ANYONE in our company is when you see an ethical issue, KEEP YOUR HEADS LOW, but call the legal department to report, but also don't use a company phone or your own phone. because if you do you will be a cost cutting measure targeted by management to help them make their numbers look good.
