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

Pros

Good focused vision.
Genuine concern for employees and their families.
Leader in industry and exceptional growth.
Transparency and approachable senior management.
Complacency is not an option.

Cons

It is very difficult for me to list any cons. I suspect that the couple of negative views are a response to the unfortunate aspect of any business and that is job loss. Fortunately this is not the case for employees who strive to become better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to make this Company a great place to work. Keep looking to the future.

    Pros

    Product has a decent name in the industry

    Cons

    Company is stuck in the 1950's. Old style operations management runs around like a bull in a china shop barking out orders without any regard to what it does to any other schedules or projects. Most managers are completely inept and clueless. IT systems are a step away from DOS green screens. Engineering technology is a disgrace as is their support documentation. Absolutely terrible at acquiring and integrating. Most companies they buy have better systems than they do and they just go in and apply their antiquated systems and ignore all the problems created. Pay is abysmal and medical and dental benefits are the worst I have ever seen. Steer clear if you are looking for a challenge. Most of the current employees are just burnt out and gave up a long time ago. Management continues to bury their collective heads in the sand and ignore the mounting internal internal issues. Their idea of investing in the company is buying another company and cutting their workforce to the bones so they are only capable of barely maintaining operations. Innovation died at this company a long long time ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention and quit believing the line of crap mid management is feeding you. The infrastructure is falling apart and this company is headed for big problems. All is not well. Seriously, when is the last time you actually did a survey of employees? The only people that end up at Vollrath are the ones that can't find a job anywhere else.
