Pros

This is very much a 'man with an opinion' company. You can excel at Guardian by voicing your opinion (as long as it doesn't greatly differ from the company opinion) and making sure you are recognized for those opinions.

Cons

There are very few female managers company wide, it is difficult to move around in the organization, the review process is fairly secretive and does not involve the employee. Compensation does not increase much after you are hired, get what you want up front.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate with the employees, allow salaried employees to participate in career planning, share the review process so the employees know what to improve upon to grow.

    I have been working at Guardian Industries full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Autonomy
    Caring management.
    Satisfactory pay.
    Great communication and information sharing.
    Fairly good support functions.
    Fantastic 401K match.
    Cafeteria and work out facility on premises.

    Cons

    I have not found any cons so far! I have found most employees to be agreeable and pleasant, knowledgeable and communicative, casual and laid back, but professional at the same time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to more flexible type work arrangements perhaps. Upper level management can be kind of stuck in the past in terms of that type of arrangement. This is 2012 and, for the most part, the top "employer of choice" companies out there are known for their flexible work arrangements. A formal program should be put in place as soon as possible.
