Pros

Great 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

Cons

Communication 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 Management

Get 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.

    Pros

    The products are interesting and many of the people are great. Stable company that offers good benefits. Plenty to learn and add to the resume.

    Cons

    Older company with ol' boy network. Advancement often based on who you know, not what you know. Wages have lagged and are now at or below the industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage those employees that show potential and reward those that respond. Offer more opportunities to those willing to take it on and make sure that their talents are utilized.

    Pros

    Company has a GREAT name in the market, excellent products & decent pay. Some of the senior people are extremely gifted at what they do - but they are being put out to pasture.

    Cons

    The division I was in was extremely political and no room for professional growth.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the management is stale. They are not respected in the market, but more importantly - by the people they manage.
