Pros

Good pay and benifits. Best group of people to work with as a whole. Jobs not labor intensive, pretty laid back.

Cons

Rotating shift. Finding out on Friday morning that you no longer have a weekend. 50/50 on getting good competent manager or incompetent idiot.

    Pros

    Open and frequent communications from senior management. Solid excellent strategies that management was able to communicate and get all associates to commit to as well. Excellent benefits and sincere concern for their associates.

    Cons

    As the organization continues towards a Management structure that reduces the amount of family influence they need to guard against becoming just another company and away from the very special family run business formulated by core principles that is one of the many foundations for their success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Launch a program that brings back the 5 principles. Recognize the importance of the manufacturing facilities and what they contribute to the business

    Pros

    Strong Brand recognition and fun products to sell
    Limited benefits for part time associates

    Cons

    New leadership team prefers to hire externally over promoting within. The latest technique is to demote associates who have been doing a job for sometimes many years to a lower position and require them to train their replacement.
    New leadership team is so business focused that the principals established by the founder's are no longer important, people are no longer important...just the bottom line.
    It used to be a fun enviorment to work, No longer. There is no praise for a job well done just critisizsm for what is not being done fast enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating associates like underlings, unqualified, and stupid. Lose the attitude that everything that was done before you started was wrong and that you are there to correct it all.
    Treat people with respect.
