    I worked at First Quality full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Clean environment, promotes from within. Safety culture in place. No tolerance for bad attendance. Everyone seem friendly and they have an open door policy.

    Cons

    Training is up in the air, they assign EMT's to lines just to watch what others do. Long hours of standing around waiting for the day to be over. If there is a bad storm and the Governor or Mayor declare a state of emergency, they expect you to come in, which contradicts their whole attitude about safety.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay in the area is higher. Be a bit more considerate of the safety of the employees outside of work.

    A growing company with internal opportunity, but not the best place if you plan to work elsewhere in your career.

    I worked at First Quality

    Pros

    Owners were committed to the business and willing to invest in the company. The central PA manufacturing locations seemed like good places to work for people already living in those areas. If you want to stay with the company long term, there are opportunities.

    Cons

    Information was kept very secret so that it was hard to get the job done in certain functions. Direction was not always given to people at all levels resulting in confusion. Nepotism was also an issue as most key managers seemed to be related to the owners some how.

    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in King of Prussia, PA
    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in King of Prussia, PA

    I worked at First Quality

    Pros

    First Quality is a huge family-run operation with a lot of cash flow. They always invest in the latest equipment to remain competitive and efficient. They have top-quality products, and are committed to manufacture them in the U.S.A.

    Cons

    All company decisions are made by the 3 brothers who run the company. Top-level management largely does not have decision-making power. Information, especially financial, is very hard to come by to do proper analysis of market decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow the employees to make more informed decisions to support the business by providing full information disclosure, including the financial metrics. Allow sales force to develop and nurture relationships with retailer buyers without interference and "going over their head".

    Company management just lying everywhere. There's no respect and owners don't care about employees at all. Beware.

    I have been working at First Quality

    Pros

    - Company spending a tons of money for new equipment and latest technologies.
    - Kind of good salaries level, if they really need you.

    Cons

    - No respect for employees at all
    - Serious lack of management communication
    - Owners and managers absolutely don't care about employees (if you are not a part of owners family, then you just a junk.
    - They can throw out anyone with kind of 1 hour notice
    - Start outsourcing process and just simply throw away team members
    - Absolutely don't keep their promises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Major advice for owners, start keep your promises and stop stupid savings process, when you just throw away your team members and looking for savings in that places, when savings is not actual at all.
