Pros

Zep has some of the finest products int he specialty chemical arena. Their products can be sold to any customer at any time. While the culture is changing, it still has the feel of a smaller company.

Cons

Zep is going through a lot of growing pains currently. It is in the process of the changing the corporate culture and refocusing efforts to establish a multiple route to market strategy. Layoffs, low-employee morale and increased pressures on remaining staff make life difficult in the short term. My thought is that when these changes are complete, Zep will find it's way back to a great place to work.

Advice to Management

Carefully consider strategies and realize that your people are your most valued asset. I have seen some talented people who have been let go due to severances and this can have negative consequences if not looked at from a case by case basis, rather than, a departmental basis.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, friendly co-workers, relaxed environment. Decent benefits for permanent employees. Company values product quality, and ensures customer satisfaction.

    Cons

    It's difficult to become permanent if you are an hourly employee (temp). They focus on LEAN manufacturing techniques that makes the production process difficult due to out-dated manufacturing equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Not enough people care about the quality of their job. If management could focus on the quality of their employees and show that they care about each individual employee then people might care about their jobs more...

  2. Great Company
