    I worked at Goodman Manufacturing

    Pros

    Decent pay & benefits, people in the branch office were friendly and helpful as much as possible although their ability to help was hindered by the fact that everyone is extremely busy with their own work.

    Cons

    If you are already in the industry and understand the complexities of HVAC sales and service you will be fine and potentially do well. If not, there is a very steep learning curve to get. You will need to learn to swim because you are thrown into the pool.

    I have been working at Goodman Manufacturing full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The dept I work for is small and I have a good manager. Salary is average for my field.

    Cons

    I've been here 10 years and bottom line they just care about profits. There are some good managers but they are few in number. New positions in a dept just pop out of nowhere, there is no postings for them to let current employees who want to advance in the company to apply. Alot of work and no extra help to get work completed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New health benefit options for employees. Consider giving yearly bonuses to all employees and not just to upper level mgmt. Put some money into employee training and job advancement programs.

    I worked at Goodman Manufacturing

    Pros

    Goodman helped set a foundation for my career. I spent 17yrs with Goodman Mfg. Opportunity! I started out as an everyday assembly line worker and once promoted I quickly moved through the ranks. Leadman, Supervisor, Lead Supervisor, Superintendent and Plant Superintendent.

    Cons

    Things changed dramatically over the years and I wouldn't say for the best either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees on the shop floor! Lol! Hard to accept but, the know best!

  9. Your supervisor will make or break your experience. There is a lot of tribal knowledge and organizational momentum. This can make things frustrating for progressive employees.

    I have been working at Goodman Manufacturing full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Goodman is a financially strong company. As an engineer that focuses on equipment and processes there are huge opportunities for experience. There is a great opportunity to be part of organizational change.

    Cons

    There is a huge emphasis on keeping expense and capital costs down. So much so that it is a fault. The company has a habit of handicapping itself.

    Some parts of the organization could treat there employees better.

    There is more emphasis on getting product out the door than taking care of their process and equipment. This negatively impacts the former.
