  1. Great place for long term stability with factory positions. Not so much for salary positions

    Former Employee - Mid Level Management in Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at CSZ full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They created work for factory workers during a slow spell instead of lay offs
    Many very long term hourly workers
    Many opportunities for factory workers to learn new skills as they manufacturer as many own parts as possible
    Interesting & Meaningfull products
    Great team and family feel amongst the factory

    Cons

    Revolving Upper Management Door brings many culture changes.
    Product knowledge dwindles from mid management & up
    Lack of trust rampant throughout management
    Unqualified people in professional positions, especially quality dept.
    Department agendas don't sync
    Dog eat dog & blame game popularity welcome

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    RUN Or unite and demand ownership remove themselves from any role in regulatory requirements. The products are great and have a real purpose. The distrust amongst the organization stems from your regulatory ethics vs ownerships. Your smart people being bullied. Every tool is there to be the best of the best. Transparency will only bring that out. Force them to bring in professionals from within the industry and not anymore executive's who managed their favorite pizza place.

  2. Not a people oriented company to work for. Largely distrustful and disrespect for employes. Employes are a dime a dozen

    I worked at CSZ full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are comparable to other companies of this size. Interesting products. Potential for future growth.

    Cons

    Training is largely up to individual. Compensation is lacking. People step over each other to get visual recognition. Unless you are family or friends of family or management, you will be just surviving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try managing the process and not just people. By focusing on people only, you are exhibiting distrust and lack of respect for employees.

    Pros

    The company is very family oriented and many employees have worked there their entire life. Good place to work if you plan on staying in Cincinnati.

    Cons

    There are not many opportunities for advancement. The company is rather understaffed and would benefit from better communication from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership would be best served to communicate priorities. Everyone has many projects on their plate at one time and everything is just as "hot" as the next
