Pros

Company is focused on making a quality product. Great if you benefit from nepotism and/or getting promoted for who you know instead of what you know.

Cons

Nepotism/cronyism/politics run amuck. You better be a "yes" man/woman. Upper managers make decisions strictly based on perceptions and not reality. The truth is viewed as "excuses" with most of the uninformed upper management. Extremely top heavy. The company will cut labor/cost to the bone at the plant (manufacturing) level, but retain and add less effective support staff at the corporate level. Middle/upper management become too involved in the decision making at plant level preventing dept. managers from effectively doing their jobs. Too many masters to serve.

Advice to Management

Get rid of the managers that play the political games. The company should focus on cutting less effective labor at the corporate levels during tough times instead of solely focusing on reducing labor at the plant level. Make sure your upper/middle management is aware that they are their to support the plants, not the other way around.

    Pros

    I became a much more seasoned manager working for Shaw Industries. The people truly make the difference.

    Cons

    Internal programs such as safety become very laden with duplicate paperwork. The safety message has become 'lost in the wash' in comparision to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the Safe System if you really wish to have employee 'buy in'.
