    Pros

    There are a few people who want to make a difference but are fighting a losing battle. The bad and incompetent definitely outnumber any good.

    Cons

    Too numerous to mention. Bad management. No leadership. Antiquated systems. Toxic culture. Less than impressive staff in key positions. The knives are always out. Watch your back. Incredibly unprofessional. A true case study in how not to run a business.

    Advice to Management

    They wouldn't listen anyway.

    Pros

    Free Cafeteria meals, some decent coworkers.

    Cons

    Verbally abusive and incompetent boss who lied, politicked, and even interfered with my performance reviews once I was transferred off of his team (of 2 employees including me). Nobody seemed to want to address this man's obvious incompetence as a technologist or a manager despite (as I understand it) he had at least one serious complaint against him. He would try to bring in consultants to do technical work that should have been handled internally, wasting our budget, because he was not competent to perform these tasks, and did nothing to help train his staff to be capable of the task either.

    Advice to Management

    Deal with problematic managers, don't turn a blind eye to a manager who clearly has a personality disorder and tries to throw his employees own under the bus (that should be a red flag).

    Pros

    Lower level employees, profit sharing & free lunch, location

    Cons

    MOST Upper management is incompetent, bullies, or never around to give direction!

    Advice to Management

    Conair needs a makeover, it's old and antiquated...management, systems, thinking, slow, out dated! The people giving the great reviews are probably the Management causing all the problems for lower level employees! If not, then why are people leaving the company on a weekly basis?

    Pros

    Great exercise, if you enjoy working with your hands then this job is great, plus you get a dollar a year raise with no cap.

    Cons

    management sucks. communication is awful and as a temp employee you get treated like you or your opinions don't matter

    Advice to Management

    work on communication and treat temp employees with a little more respect because they're one of the reasons for your success

    Pros

    The company is very large but each division operates separately so that each division can concentrate on their category and clearly be the leaders when working with customers. I work in the Hair Brush and Accessory area and we not only love our product and always feel like we are selling quality, we also love our group. Even in stressful times, we work together as a group to find a solution and always have some laughs. The leadership is always willing to listen and help address any situation or issue. Each person is a valued member and all levels of management are willing to help.

    Cons

    We work in consumer product goods and this overall business can be stressful on how to lower the cost of business and drive over all sales. I have worked for Conair for several years, so I can't imagine that any company can escape this problem.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work as team.
