I worked at SimplexGrinnell full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great benefits & decent pay.

Cons

I worked there over 10 yrs ago & they were restructuring the company. They are always restructuring something. My co-workers were typical of any office environment. Some were cutthroat, some were helpful. The branch manager was the worst guy I've ever had the displeasure of working for. HR didn't do diddly squat to help. He is no longer there from what I understand.

    Pros

    Money. Insurance... the same Pros that come with just about any job.

    Cons

    Management. Management in this company needs to be cut in half and the savings distributed among the people that actually do the work. Managers, either lower or upper level, are nothing but middlemen that absorb insane amounts of money. The managers are do nothings that provide no service to the customer or the employee and don't deserve a paycheck.

    If I were managing a building, I would never, ever choose SimplexGrinnell to service anything. I wouldn't let SimplexGrinnell walk my dog for fear it would take months to complete the work and then I'd get over charged.

    SimplexGrinnell is 100% money motivated. SimplexGrinnell cares nothing about their customers and they have zero integrity. At SimplexGrinnell, it's the employee's job to have integrity. Not management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, look for a different job. Go find a job where you can perform profitable work instead of leeching from others.

    Pros

    Benefits, company vehicle and vertical promotions

    Cons

    Micro-management, culture is bad, to top heavy, 6 Sigma is ridiculous and to many corporate pass downs with unreal expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micro-managing every piece of the business.
