Not a very good place to work

Current Employee - Senior Procurement Analyst in Grand Rapids, MI

I have been working at Steelcase full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good study (low) pay as long as it's not the day they need to reduce headcount and they call you into the office and tell you that you are no longer needed.

Cons

Management only wants to hear from you if you tell them what they want to hear. Not what is the truth or what should be done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start reducing some of the excess layers of management. All they are interested in is being a puppet to protect their our jobs instead of doing what is best for the company.

    I have been working at Steelcase full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good starting point for interns that want a global organization on their resume/portfolio
    Good place to be if you're looking to coast through the back nine of your career
    Respectable salary and benefits
    World-class designers and industrial engineers to learn from
    Helpful and supportive colleagues
    Casual work environment

    Cons

    Bureaucratic leadership
    Rampant cronyism and nepotism within the management ranks. It's a "good ol' boy" organization
    Too much outsourcing of core competencies...especially on the technology side
    Few growth opportunities
    What good are MAPP goals if they're not acted upon?

    If you're a millennial and thinking about joining Steelcase, be sure to ask yourself - "Are you willing to give 15-20 yrs of your life before POSSIBLY seeing an opportunity to grow." The average Steelcase salaried employee has been with the company 20+ years, so its very difficult to advance and influence positive changes. Leadership is very set in their ways. I can only hope that Mr. Keane will change the culture in that regard. If you're not based out of the GR-headquarters and not willing to relocate, forget about advancement. Not going to happen. If you want to grow and be challenged on a daily basis, this may not be the best organization for you. If you're a "go with the flow" type of person and just looking to pay the bills, then you'll fit right in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create professional development opportunities for non-GR based employees and millennials otherwise you will be dealing with a lot of brain drain.
