Great people, but it can be difficult to make meaningful change

I have been working at Shure as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Smart, friendly people. There are some opportunities to make a very long term career path within the company. People often stay for many years, and the culture is in many ways like a family.

Cons

It can take a long time to make necessary changes. Direction can change often without proper measurement to see what's working and what isn't. Information flow between teams is sometimes poor.

Advice to Management

Let your smart people try some new things without an outside consultant having to suggest it. At almost every level, people should be able to learn to provide some kind of metric of success. Then you could trust them to do more.

  1. Solid products but an old school company

    Pros

    Nice product discount. Location wasn't bad in terms of distance from the city (versus other suburbs). Outside of the department I worked in, it's probably not as bad.

    Cons

    Weak management, poor leadership and decision making, benefits not up to date versus what other more modern companies offer, negative work environment where individualism rather than team work is encouraged. Individuals are openly criticized and reprimanded in front of their coworkers and/or supervisors. Again, I don't think this is the case in other departments but definitely in our department.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Shure advertises that it is a company with stringent corporate values but then turns its cheek when those values are not being adhered to so long as that person has a nice title and is in a position of authority.


  2. Great Products and associates - disconnected top management

    Pros

    Cool building, cool industry, some of the best co-workers you will find. Global companny with strong brand recognition in its industry.

    Cons

    Weak leader at the top, "old guard" not open to new people and new ways of doing business. High turnover in top management.
