Great Place To Work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Anoka, MN

ProsGreat pay & close to home
Good benefits at low cost to the employee
Good product, very competetive in its market
Advancement opportunities
Job security
Educational benefits for employees and their families

ConsCommunication could be improved. Also it would be nice to see capable employees who have experience within the company get promoted from within regardless of whether or not they have a college degree. Experience should still count for something.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet out of the office and take the time to visit with the employees on the shop floor. It seems as though Graco management used to be promoted from the shop floor. Since it currently seems to promote more from within its sales and marketing staff, the communication between management and the factory workers has diminished. Getting people to work together begins with getting to know them and realizing they are no different than you.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
