Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – The benefits are decent working there, insurance was rather inexpensive and covered us well. They also do respect work/life balance if you need to handle something. They do make very nice furniture, if you can afford it.
Cons – Just about everything else not in pros. There is little opportunity to move up unless someone retires in your dept. Pay is rather low, even for the area. Managers play definite favorites amongst employees, and you are completely dispensable if you aren't one of them. Senior managers took forever to make any kind of decision. Corporate culture/values? They don't have any, and pay lip service to it at best.
Advice to Senior Management – Spending money on a brand new office building a few years after shuttering outside plants and laying off workers? What kind of message do you think that sends?

Pros – Flexsteel has decent pay, and perks such as buying their furniture for cost. The work environment is not too stressful on most days.
Cons – I wasn't trained very well on what I was supposed to do. My direct supervisor abused her position and made me do all of my work and most of her work.
Advice to Senior Management – Upper management should make sure that middle management is doing it's job the way that it is supposed to be done.
