I worked at Leedo Cabinetry full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Company is growing in the multifamily construction market

Cons

Needs to work in shipping logistics and the packaging &the loading of their cabinets. Damaged and back ordered products are a constant problem and the subcontracted installers are unreliable leaving the field manager at the center of constant crisis management with no support to provide long term solutions to clients.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develope a better onboarding and training process. Focus more on finding better installers are or hiring an installation crew for each area that can aide the field manager when subcontracted installers don't show or need support to maintain clients schedule of work

    Pros

    A lot of demand and sales for the product. The housing/new construction industry seems to be on the rise again, and there is a lot of potential for the company to get a lot of work if they do not tarnish their name and continue to disappoint customers.

    Cons

    Management is trying to cut costs too soon causing a high quantity of mistakes. For example, there is no quality inspector. Ideally, operators should be responsible for quality, however, with so many new employees the costs of hiring someone to focus on assuring quality of the product before large amounts are produced would be quickly offset by less large mistakes (also, this would require less Saturdays to be worked with little to no notice for the employees AND would enable to product to be delivered to the customer in a timely manner). Too many times bad product is made in large quantities and caught at the end of the manufacturing cycle (not to mention order entry of configuration errors - where the product is made as specified by the system, but then turns out to be wrong -- again often not caught until a large quantity of parts is brought together to be assembled).

    The management also does not seem to be aware of the production bottlenecks or how long different processes will truly take. Proper research and time studies were not done when planning the production output, and time. Very little JIT/LEAN manufacturing principles are applied. Often to get the holidays off, employees are then required to work Saturday (with little to no notice). Many times salaried employees work long hours and weekends (70-80/week) with no extra compensation.

    Furthermore, after enduring these pitfalls, reviews are not given in a timely manner and bonuses were not given even when your job was done well and your department was performing as well as it could be considering how it is set up.

    I cannot say this strong enough, management does not have any concept of employees' work/life balance. Costs to the employees continually increase (particularly more hours required to work for salaried employees) with now increase in benefit.

    Employees are asked to work in hot environment without fans. Many fans are situated throughout the plant blowing in areas where employees are not. Management/maintenance did not take time to reposition them for at least 2 summers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Minimal benefits for employees. Set a deadline for whether or not Saturday will be worked (ie. by lunch Wednesday). After a set number of Saturdays worked for salaried employees (10 or so), increase compensation. Get the plant to run smoothly, train the employees, produce good quality - THEN try to get it to efficiently.

    I worked at Leedo Cabinetry

    Pros

    Leedo does a great job a getting very good people to work for the company. Surrounded by lots of talent.

    Cons

    Treats employees like a number. Evident they do not care about them and are constantly belittling them in front of their peer group. No concern for work-life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive management needs to do a much better job in understanding the pulse of the company and how their employees feel. They will continue to have a high turnover rate if they do not.
