    Pros

    There were not many pros to this job to be honest except that it paid, albeit not very well.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations from supervisors, most workers are temps, work environment was hostile

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of taking care of your employees instead of treating them like machines, create a more comfortable work environment.

    I have been working at Goodman Manufacturing full-time

    Pros

    I have worked for some outstanding managers who went the extra mile to help me succeed.

    Cons

    The company is very conservative with tools - most tools are built internally with basic capabilities to assist with job functions. Depending on the department, there are limited opportunities to move up into leadership. Also, there is often limited cross training, so it can be difficult when out of the office to have a back-up.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in solutions to help employees succeed. There are too many manual processes.

    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.

    If I had to do it over again, I wouldn't choose Goodman to work for.

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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