    It is all about who you know and not what you know

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCustomer service and sales people very easy to deal with and benefits are pretty good,

    ConsUpper management was all about promoting who they know, rarely listened to the information the sales people were getting from customers. Let people earn what they deserve

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to grow you have to believe in your people

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Spend money on cameras to catch peoples mistakes instead of safety = Explosion in the making.

    Operator (Former Employee)
    Morris, IL

    ProsThe pay was decent, insurance, medical dental vision at a decent cost. Some of the co workers actually cared about the quality of the product.

    ConsVery unsafe. Little attention was paid to safety, first responders--- there were none. No training in the area of fire prevention. Horrible plant ventilation, management uses money to spy and snoop instead of using the money to help organize safety programs. And dont be a minuet late or they give you grief even though you walk 3 blocks from parking to plant.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSeriously. Stop the mis use of athority. Look at the people that work there and put your self in their boots. They want to live another day. Work on safety and hire a safety staff. The plant needs to have a safety ehs person and there has not been one in that dangerous enviorment for over 3 years. Fix It.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It felt like busy work.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Research Triangle Park, NC

    ProsThe company had great health benefits.

    ConsThere was zero community within the company. There were zero celebrations for holidays or events. The build did not even have a communal room for the employees to meet in and socialize. Most people ate lunch at their desks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management should try to encourage a more social culture. A holiday party would be great or maybe a company picnic.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Forbo does not look at performance as much as they care who you know. Definitely do lot of micromanaging

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood medical benefits and pension

    ConsNo opportunity for advancement, below average training, and more worried about what the competition is doing that what they are doing

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeeds to look at some of the people that have been with the company for 5-10 years for new ideas, versus the 15-20 years who are just skating by

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
