Pros

1) Working with dedicated colleagues.
2) Camaraderie among the Sealy Team.
3) Plant Operations a strength with a lot of body knowledge and experience.
4) Sales & Marketing driven Co.

Cons

1) Sales & Marketing driven Co.
2) Hiring of educated professionals that are book smart, but lacking the experience, wisdom, and common sense.
3) Political environment at Sealy Corp.; turf battles between different parts of the organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1) Hire people that are not only educated, but with practical experience. Train them to learn the Sealy business before allow them to apply their trade.
2) Develop overall business plan to synchonize each department to work as one, instead of Purchasing doing cost savings that ends up costing loss in efficiency to Operations due to poor implementation, parts not fitting, or equipment going down because things were overlooked.
3) Operations Team (Plant Management) is where the money is made: Sales ink the deal and book the orders, Operations deliver and bring home the proceeds in the end.

    Disappointed

    Pros

    There is an immense amount of flexibility in a person's schedule. The income potential is very high, if you can figure out how to do everything.

    Cons

    Training is non-existent. Little help is available to new employees. New hires are expected to figure everything out for themselves. In this sink or swim industry, training should be imperative. It is clearly not a priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training programs should be developed and implemented better. Additionally, adapting to market conditions and trends should be a top priority.

  2.  

    Overall, a good place to work

    Pros

    You are afforded the flexibility to manage your time as you see fit so long as your work is completed.

    Cons

    You are required to be a very strong self-starter. With corporate offices being in Toronto, you have to keep yourself organized and motivated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay more transparent with your sales team! We have to feel like we're trusted and respected in order to be fully competent.
