    Disappointing company - compensation to their hardest working and most committed employees decreasing every year.

    Pros

    The company has been growing and increasing sales, but it has been through selling cheaper outsourced foreign hand tools.

    Cons

    We are required to come in early and work late and field 10pm conference calls with China. Upper management pushes us for more and more every day. So we every day work our buts off and sacrifice time from our families, overall the pay and bonuses were the worst I have ever seen here. They had a record sales year, and the pay and bonuses were the worst, workers are really disappointed with how the company had been going backwards in their compensation to their hardest working and most committed employees.

    The company wastes a lot of time with poor communications from the top down. It is just too common to have duplicate efforts on the same work. We spends hours everyday in useless meeting and you look around and everyone is just surfing the internet on phones.

    Expect to be ignored if you try and say good morning to any upper management when you pass them in the halls. They act as if you do not exist and bury their noses into their phone texts to ignore you. Management has missed the mark and they are ingrained as being dysfunctional in the company. But they are so focused on the bottom line they completely miss reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget that not just senior management likes bonuses. The rest of us that worked long hours than management and sacrificed family time were completely forgotten. Some of the best workers there are treated and compensated as they do not exist.
