I have been working at Elkay Manufacturing

Pros

Good work load.People are very nice in general.Pay is ok.the company has started to take more market share from other competitors and looks like it is working.Benefits are pretty good and management usually gives you a lot of freedom to do things.It is in general a good place to work and actually a lot of employees have been with the companies for many many years.A lot of engineers in the company and right now the company is trying to change from a manufacturing driving company to a market driving company.

Cons

Too many changes within a short period of time.Pay raise is limited and there is almost bonus right now.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop changing management and start to develop employees.Provide more training to people.

    I have been working at Elkay Manufacturing full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, great people and best products.

    Cons

    Senior sales management has not taken the time over the years to really get to know and listen to their sales team and independent representatives who could bring some serious insight and advice. Senior management is more interested in people who they can golf with and drink with than the people who pound the pavement and do the REAL work! They pay lip service and spend tons of money on surveys and consultants while ignoring great advice from people they see and talk to every day. This is NOT the great company of the 1980's- 1990's. Personal agendas here dominate. Many people would leave here under the management since 2006 but obviously the economy right now won't allow this right now. Senior Sales mgr should thank his lucky stars he is employed here rather than as a golf caddy where he belongs. Since 2003 Elkay has been going down hill and no one is to blame other than the senior management since then. All about their egos. So sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves after you return your golf clubs, close out your bar tabs, and return bonuses that should have gone to those unsung heros that mgt never cares about and your independent reps who do all the work while bearing more of the cost of doing business for less money.
    Then SELL Elkay to people who really care instead of those who pretend.

    Inconsistent long term goals & vision. Consistently changing strategies. Mind set in certain segments of the business need updated to current business practices. Need updated technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set goals & visions and follow them through. Promote from within.
