Pros

growing company that has high a large line of quality products at different price points attractive to do-it-yourself consumer as well as professional consumer. health care benefits are outstanding.

Cons

promotion opportunities are somewhat limited, largely due to size of company and no opportunities for transfers betwen companies under the Griffon ownership

Advice to ManagementAdvice

be fair in all treatment to employees, offer more professional opportunites, make available career opportunities within Griffon family of companies.

    Pros

    Busy place! Runs lean so all team members need to perform. Cross functional teams. 4-9 new product projects per season. Regular, controlled change is commonplace.

    Cons

    Tendancy to tunnel vision in product management. Difficulty in bridging the gap selling consumer driven designs to retail chain buyers on a consistent basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Live the bottom-up culture you preach to unleash the creative potential of your people!!

    I worked at Ames True Temper full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent pay. Good people to work with. Plenty of work with opportunity for overtime. Never was forced to work overtime.

    Cons

    Went out of business. The field for bankruptcy and closed their doors. One day we came to work and had a big meeting to tell us we were all losing out jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't go out of business. It's easier to make money when you are in business
