Uninspiring but stable

ProsSteelcase dealer, so it sells highly-respected products. Management always has best interest of the company in mind; they are not selfishly trying to suck the company dry. Strong values, and they do try to do the right thing.

ConsSenior management has a horrible tin-ear when it comes to motivating and inspiring its workforce. I have heard it said by senior management more than once, "if they don't like it here, they should just get a job elsewhere." They do try to do right by employees through employee appreciation week and fun committees, but they are mostly childish activities. They display a large chip on their shoulder when they are being generous, as if it is a huge burden, and we are ingrates. They think of employees as children. People of color will not be found in leadership, and the token female position is constantly changing. There are no opportunities for advancement. Pay is mediocre.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey need to get people in senior management that think a little differently from them. The most effective senior management I've seen has polar opposites at the top, so that group-think does not set in.

    Friendly, hard-working community of people; disconnected with forward growth and development.
