    Former Intern - Co-Op in Anderson, SC

    I worked at Electrolux Home Products as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    People in general were quite cooperative and the environment was easy to get along and get things done. The organization of the company also make them easy to define responsibility and facilitate the completion of projects.

    Cons

    The company seems to lack in the management aspect. There seem to be some complication where the projects get delayed due to lack of decisiveness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be helpful to develop a system that the management can follow, so that in times of new projects, instead of having to figure the best way to go about handling resources, there could be some guideline that both the management and the work force can follow to facilitate completion of projects.

    Pros

    the only thing good there is they pay decent.

    Cons

    they treat everyone as a number, to much favoritism to many people afraid to tell the truth because of higher management only take care of their family and buddies there even when they are in the wrong. expect one person to do the job of three. way to much more to list.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    run the company based on company policies not who your related to or hang out with. treat people equal and fairly!

    Pros

    Discounts on appliances, Office building is beautiful. Employees work hard.

    Cons

    Having to pick up extra responsibilities , due to lay offs. Experienced managers laid off and new managers do not know what they are doing. my whole department was outsourced after 2 months of turmoil and management change. We all were very stressed with the work load and management kept saying they were going to help us. They never helped our department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value Experience instead of just looking at jobb titles.

    Pros

    The benefits were very good there. The pay - Very good compared to alot of other labor jobs.

    Cons

    Supervisors and workers both would have benefited if Electrolux required all supervisors to attend seminars or the like on how to deal with the people they were in charge of. The boss above the supervisors really could have used some helpful ideas on how not to bring the workers morale down. Also needed instruction on how to get his point across to workers without humiliating or yelling at them. This person really dragged morale way down for workers under him.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some classes on how to manage employees and the proper, adult way to talk to them, , or even give criticism, without embarrassing them in front of co-workers.

    Pros

    The Compensation Package and Benefits are decent, but the Bonuses were hard earned. The Company is self insured on their Health Care Benefits.

    Cons

    The Demands of the Sales Positions were way too much at times, you need to get used to working some pretty long hours, especially when traveling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management was apparently not aware of some of the issues with Middle Management, who ran their business with fear and intimidation.
