    Pros

    Best company in the state!! One big family that works together to put each other in the best place to be successful.

    Cons

    The only one con I see sometimes we don't know how good we are really doing. We are focused on making things better each day we don't always step back and see how much we have improved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your team and find opportunities for them that fits their passion.

  2. Great when it snowing

    Pros

    Douglas is a fantastic company to work for. Employees are given many opportunities to contribute to many aspects of the business which provides a level of ownership for everyone. Ideas for continuous improvement are encouraged even when they fall outside of current area of responsibility.

    Cons

    There still seems to be a sense of "us versus them" feeling with manufacturing locations. The culture of one family is not necessarily always led from top down and sometimes even seems to be misguided by some in management. Best practices should be shared and encouraged not fought.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more unification of ideas between locations. Challenge business units to come together on common grounds and ensure that the corporate vision is shared at all levels of the organization.
