    Pros

    The managers were friendly and ready to help. They were also open to any suggestions I had for improvement.

    Cons

    It is a very hot work environment during the summer - typical factory line job. Also, some of the members on the line really slowed down the process by slacking off and going slowly.

    Advice to Management

    You should do a better job weeding out people who clearly can't pull their own weight.

    Pros

    Management had a open door policy, the department was very close knit and gathered on multiple occasions outside of work. Seems that there is rapid room to grow especially in the materials department,.
    Good benefits overall. Company is growing, so more opportunities could be in the horizon.

    Cons

    Management could micro-manage a little too much, often slowing work down and adding unecessary burdens. Certain managers lacked personal communication skills .

    Pros

    Good pay
    Consistent hours and work
    Decent benefits

    Cons

    Little chance of advancement even with a small, growing company.
    Higher ups seem to care little for the workers in assembly. Just concerned about meeting the quota.
    Petty fights between departments were annoying and helped nobody.

    Advice to Management

    Management always felt distant when I was there. They would just come in and check to see if everything was going alright and then continue on even if things weren't alright. Basically they would just micromanage or else leave you alone.
    Advancement opportunities would be nice.

  6. Growing Company with many new faces

    Pros

    Pay is fairly high for the area but still could be higher.
    Easy place to get to being in a smaller town.
    Flexible Work schedule.
    Good Work/Life balance most of the time.
    Company is growing and expanding.

    Cons

    Buildings could use some updating such as adding windows, color, new carpet, newer chairs for meetings.
    No Wifi on site. Computers could be better/faster.
    No lunchrooms outside of the factory and breakrooms could be bigger/better and provide free coffee, apple cider, hot chocolate, and/or filtered water.
    The products could look better, especially home units. More color.

    Advice to Management

    Build another Factory, the growth is there for it.
    Keep supporting new designs and innovation.

    Pros

    Luckily the other employees saw what an uncomfortable work environment it was and at least you could bond with each other.

    Cons

    Employees feel like they have to walk on eggshells to keep their positions. The high level executives wrote employees up if they were over 2 minutes late or 2 minutes early when leaving. Furthermore, there was no flexibility for Dr. appts/other without reprecussions.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the reality of employees lives and listen to them. Put yourselves in their shoes and you could retain the same great talent, but not make employees feel like their every move is being watched.
