Pratt La Vergne is terrible

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) La Vergne, TN

ProsThere are some really good employees but they aren't sticking around.

ConsThe turnover is very high, almost 90% of the people that were there when I started less than 5 years ago, are gone. There is no morale. It's hard to be positive when you work overtime constantly and are never thanked for your time or contribution. No one cares how much you do and if someone can't do their job well, then it's your job to do it for them. Even things like taking a sick day are frowned upon and managers will ask other employees if you are really sick or not. The stress is higher than any place I've worked and there is favoritism for 'special' customers. Too bad they aren't even the biggest customers we have. Yet the GM still feels it necessary to complain about high costs even though he's the main reason we have them.
And it's really pitiful that you know corporate knows how poor things are and won't step in and change management.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit lying to customers, they see right through it. Only promise what you can deliver. Let your people know how good they are and if they aren't, either fire them or actually train them for once. Quit telling vendors or other GMs how your people "suck so bad I could do the job better myself." No wonder there's no morale. Treat your employees like people. No one wants to work 50-60 hours a week even if you think there's nothing wrong with that. Too bad you've already gone home for the day while they are working their butts off.
Get a new GM, one who knows how to work with people AND run a business, not someone who is a narcissist.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Long hours, chaotic environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Lewisburg, OH

    I have been working at Pratt Industries USA


    Pros: Decent pay and benefits for the area. Cons: Poor communication between mgt and hourly workers. It doesn't matter how long you've been there, how much overtime you put in or how hard you… Advice to Senior Management: Show a little more appreciation for the good employees … No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
