    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Friendly employees working in production. (those employees below management)
    Lowest paid employees seem to work the hardest and take pride in their work. (Line assemblers, machine operators, supervisors, a few managers in production)

    Cons

    If you are looking for a career at an organization that will appreciate your knowledge and experience and listen to your ideas..... this is not the place for you. Sr. Management penalizes anyone who does not conform to their ideas and way of thinking. CEO and CFO put their ideas and agendas before the good of the company. President is clueless to what is really going on in her company. Great employees are leaving or let go because they don't fall into compliance with the management team. It is more of a popularity contest then a professional organization based on skills. There are several managers who are in positions of authority, but have no business being in their positions. They are not popular among the employees, they are part of a "GROUP" within the organization that is protected by dysfunctional Sr. Managers. They have no clue how to treat people with respect, integrity and professionalism. You go places in the company only if they "LIKE' you. Unless you are part of the "GROUP" and if you are, you can treat people with disrespect and not worry about losing your job. They are not held accountable for their actions.

    The Berry family has turned a once revered company into a failure. They are struggling to come up with new ideas to stay competitive in the market. Relying on old products to continue their success. Failure after failure with new product lines. They do not have a strong team within the management group to stand up for their employees and make the company a great success. They are struggling with ideas, concepts and final stages of production because Sr. Managers and Directors don't have the skills needed for success.

    What was once a place where employees felt appreciated, and their ideas were actually taken serious, is now an organization of dysfunction, failure and dread.

    Same employee appreciation activities year after year after year. How many times can you have the same stuff without getting tired of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest to the Berry's that they bring in a Sr. Manager that has no ties to the current management team. They should look at the skills, knowledge and experience of each manager to see if they are a good fit for their position.

    Look into the compensation structure. Make it fair across the board.

    The Sr. Manager that you hire to look at the company should also be forthcoming with the Berry's concerning the future success of the current organization.

    Find new people or form a new committee if you want your employee appreciation activities to be impactful and successful. Your current ones are not working.

    I would suggest restructuring the management team. That is just my opinion. Too many great employees have gone..... don't let any more go. Maybe consider rehiring employees who actually made a difference in the organization but were treated unfairly.

    Pros

    Career advancement, education promotion, good opportunity, small enough to make a difference yet large enough to offer career advancement and place to be.

    Cons

    Family run!!! Greedy and self serving children of the original owner do not have what it takes to take the company to the next level, or even sustain it for that matter. They have lost most all of the employee depth they once had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the Barry family and the company just may survive to continue to be a blessing to those who work there honorably.

    Pros

    Pay, technical experience, not much else

    Cons

    Cash register for family owners. They keep pulling $ out as fast as they can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to sell. The best days of this company happened many years ago. The company isn't a piggy bank to support your lavish and greedy lifestyle. There used to be fun parties, happier employees, more team spirit. We won't even talk about what the owners have done with the sunshine committee. So sad. I wish we could bring back the best employees from years gone by.

    Develop new products and nurture existing top customers

    Pros

    Stable Product Line. Standard Benefits. Small Company.

    Cons

    Limited Talent at Senior Management Levels. Low Pay. Limited Growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the Bleeding. Stop thinking Delta is not for everyone.. Don't just take care of your top five behind the wall of the office, don't you think you have given them enough. Share with the rest of your teams, frustrating working for peanuts, no bonuses as promised.

    Current Employee - Engineer  in  Streetsboro, OH
    Current Employee - Engineer in Streetsboro, OH

    Pros

    - Pay/benefits are good
    - Work/life balance is great
    - Organization is "flat" - there's a org chart, but anyone at any level in the company can approach any of the senior managers or president at any time with questions, suggestions, etc.
    - Management welcomes feedback / input from employees
    - Work is interesting and engaging - small company atmosphere means getting to work on a number of different projects while making a meaningful impact on each
    - Culture is friendly and cooperative

    Cons

    - Company has high market share for its current products/customer base, so it needs to find new customers and new products for meaningful growth in the coming years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your employees and looking for good opportunities to grow the business.

    Delta Systems, Inc. --A Great Place to Work

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Streetsboro, OH
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Streetsboro, OH

    Pros

    The work environment is pleasant; assignments are challenging and the people friendly.
    Education is taken very serious with ample opportunities to pursue company paid degreed programs or non-degreed continuing education. Many employees have gotten bachelor’s degrees and there are quite a few employees who have graduate degrees as a result of the educational program. The company prides itself on promoting from within and there are many examples of good people who have shown initiative and positive results and have been promoted to more responsible positions. Compensation is very competitive and the benefits are good. The company is 30% owned by the employees (ESOP). Every year the company deposits money into an ESOP retirement fund for each employee.
    The company has received national recognition for quality excellence. The family that owns the business has made large investments in plant equipment and a beautiful facility. They are committed to keeping manufacturing jobs in Ohio. This is a good thing in the age of off-shoring. The CEO takes a genuine interest in all employees. For example she makes visits to the shop floor weekly on all three shifts to talk with employees. Periodic meetings are held with all employees with an open forum to ask questions of the CEO.
    The company is not afraid to try new approaches, look at new markets and make changes that ensure that the company is well positioned for future success. Delta makes a very good product at a fair price which is a recipe for continued success.

    Cons

    The company sells into a marketplace that is seasonal by nature (outdoor power equipment). July is a slow month in the factory and certain parts of the factory do not work all or parts of this month. Advanced notice is given concerning slowdowns in July to allow factory employees to use vacation and personal time. Office and professional staff are not affected by the July slowdown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the family culture that has made this company a great place to work. Companies need to respond to changes in the business environment to ensure continued success. In order to improve and better respond to customers, change is necessary. Remember that some employees will resist change. I have sat on the sidelines and watched the few folks who hark back to the “good old days.” A few have chosen to leave the company rather than accept the changes that are necessary. Several of those who left the company because of the changes have vented their displeasures (frustrations?) on this site about the changes. It is ironic that the very changes that are being criticized were necessary, and have proven to be effective in supporting continued product and market leadership.
    This is an excellent company, well managed and financially strong. Continue to make decisions that build on the strengths of the company—excellent engineering, high quality manufacturing and strong customer relationships built over 40 years.
