Was good in the early 90's

IT Manager (Current Employee)
Toledo, OH

ProsGood factory discount, nice office environment as long as you do not have to visit factories. Generally the atmospher is relatively laid back. A few people on the team due the bulk of the heavy lifting and many others can coast for years. Many senior level employees are retired in place enjoying having a job while the company slowly declines. HR tried to attract good employees and the benefits are decent for Toledo. If you are looking at a short term gig to get experience, less than 2 years or so it might be a place to consider before leaving Toledo for good.

ConsThe Company is doing poorly. The stock price just hit a 52 week low. Competition is fierce from overseas. Senior management is clueless on what to do next. The company is massively leveraged in debt. Oil prices and natural gas prices are knocking the wind out of any hopes for a profitable year. Goal sharing although in place pays out very seldom and no where near the maximum. Senior management thinks it can beat the market by becoming Chinese. Will soon move all production out of USA due to labor prices. This company has hits its prime and now fill go from mediocre to death.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet new ideas. The old ways are as old as you are. Limited innovation and embracing new technology. Upper management should change from beating people up with endless streams of questions and start providing ideas and leaderships instead of analyzing everything to death.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good place to work

    Sales (Former Employee)

    I worked at Libbey full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Great products, excellent distribution and it's corporate culture is improving. The new president… Cons: Need better tools for training, average pay and need to either hire actual managers or train current managers to be proper manager. … Advice to Senior Management: Poor manager communication to sales and too many internal processes. Focus on the business as a whole… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
