  1.  

    Evenflo is surprisingly lacking female leadership, considering it's customer base.

    I worked at Evenflo

    Pros

    Some of the employees are very passionate about the consumer and their product needs. The company is small enough that you can actually accomplish something.

    Cons

    There are people in leadership positions that are much too politically motivated to be effective. There is a high management turnover rate which continually disrupts the process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some smart, innovation minded women for upper management and keep them long enough to make a difference. I saw some good female leaders leave out of frustration. Those are the people who can make a difference in the organization.

    Pros

    Building good safety products to protect children.

    Cons

    Unstable work environment. Constant change of direction. Extreme micromanagement. Poorly staffed in key management and supervisory positions. Company moral at an all-time low. Lack of support from corporate level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change of management can be a good thing. In this case it sent the operations in a tailspin. Spent years building up the department and improving operations. All of that is gone.
    Connect with your employees. Management has lost touch.

    I worked at Evenflo

    Pros

    Working for a company that makes safe products for babies is in it self satisfying. Just knowing that my work in some way helps others.

    Cons

    If you have kids, you best find a way to care for them. Unless your in upper, upper management you will not be favored if you have to care for them now and then.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold you leaders more accountable than those below. Many times those below are not happy becuase what their leaders get away with.
