  1.  

    A complete train wreck of a company that can best be defined as dysfunctional.

    I have been working at ES Robbins full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most products are of decent quality; unfortunately most of those are sourced from other domestic and Chinese manufacturers. Health care plan is competitive for the area.

    Cons

    Senior management, specifically the owner and CFO, are delusional and will take the company into bankruptcy rather than make meaningful changes. It is not unusual for most employees to go 3 - 5 years between pay raises (most of us have to stay here because employment options are limited in NW Alabama). The company struggles to make money but only because the owner spends a ridiculous amount of company money on his personal interests including horse racing, polo, and private jets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Convince the owner to walk away and let the few good people remaining to do their jobs before they shut the doors and put all of us out of work.

    I have been working at ES Robbins full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Used to have a good reputation for products and innovation

    Cons

    Very high turnover of white collar staff
    Everyone checks out exactly at 5PM due to lack of recognition by senior management
    Most everyone is looking for another company to work for but the options are few in NW Alabama
    Worst morale I have ever seen in a company
    Losing key sales people and sales are declining rapidly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need succession planning asap
    Treat employees as contributors to the business - not property

    Doesn't Recommend
