    I worked at Electrolux (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked around a lot of talented people during my time here. It was my first job after finishing college and the experience was invaluable.

    Cons

    As with many companies, there was no particular hurry to dramatically increase employee compensation. I had to leave to earn a significantly higher salary.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Electrolux (Less than a year)

    Pros

    well, if you like working in a run-down dirty poorly maintained factory, then this place is for you. Don't know if Electrolux's plants for higher end products are any better, but for a highly respected name like Electrolux, this low margin plant is sad.

    Cons

    Complete disconnect between Plant Manufacturing Engineers and Advanced MFE group. Lots of fingerpointing by the Plant MFE group with little to no supporting data, which unfortunately for Electrolux, was bought by the PM without question. Even when contradictory data was presented, PM continued to repeat references to long-discounted excuses for non-performance by Plant MFE's.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to force better communication and CO-OPERATION between Plant MFE's and Advanced MFE group, there is a TON of inefficiency to be wrung out of the political infighting between these 2 groups at the Anderson, SC plant, and I got the feeling it was long-standing. Don't accept excuses at face value from your plant MFE's, hold their feet to the fire for why the plant is not performing.

    Pros

    Great, talented co-workers and very nice products.

    Cons

    Sector management is reactionary and has no vision past the latest months results. Promised resources to help develop sales but never delivered

    Advice to Management

    Develop a long term strategy and follow through with it.

    Very friendly work environment, everyone treated the same.. has strong sales and continued growth outlook... mindful of environment and community

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Electrolux (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Focus on details, everyone knows their business and drives for results. No micro management and ability to run department as necessary to support business.

    Cons

    High turn over, some departments rule through fear and have a "burn them and turn them" type attitude

    Advice to Management

    Less internal conflict and more focus on the consumer. Great place for an employee to grow/develop but learn to retain the talent.

    I have been working at Electrolux full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    sell and work on products that are critical to making consumers lives more easy and enjoyable. nice headquarter facility in charlotte. good reputation in charlotte. friendly coworkers. good diversity of employees.

    Cons

    no leadership direction at all from the top. current interim ceo pretends to be a nice guy but he has a terrible record of laying off employees (10-20%) at the end of every year in every job he had. Can not trust him. current culture is to be happy playing in the low end of the market. comp & benefits are very low comparing to market. most people are looking elsewhere. Me too.

    Advice to Management

    lead and encourage your employees. motivate them. practice pay for performance!
