A Safe Place for the Unmotivated to Lay Low...

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Cleveland, OH

Pros-Great work/life balance
-Great associates
-Very unstressful/unchallenging (con or pro...you decide)
Oatey is a good place to work if you have a family and can afford to raise them on what Oatey pays you. The workplace is without urgency or concern, and the work/life balance is satisfied as a result.

Cons-Ridiculous compensation, on the verge of insulting
-Incredibly shrinking benefits year after year
-Indefinite wage freeze
Never expect to earn your way up or earn more income at Oatey. The company is intimately coupled with the housing market...as the market withers, so do the opportunties at Oatey. The hiring philosphy is to bring in talent from the outside only, most often at wages that far exceed internal talent for the exact same positions. This is not a company to come to if you are a motivated, energetic, and high-performing worker with management potential.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop the political nonsense. This company may be family-owned, but it shouldn't ACT family-run. Get more mid-level managers, because there is a huge age gap between senior managment and the potential management pool. Unless, of course, the plan is to simply buy the management talent from the market at highly inflated prices...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
