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

    Pros

    The initial salary package typically is pretty good. People are friendly but I have certainly seen better.

    Cons

    There is no concept of employee development. Its a "sweat shop" mentality. Leadership runs on a push system more than a pull strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considering employee development will take the company forward by leaps and bounds. Will also increase personnel motivation.

    Pros

    There was not one thing good that came from Goodman in Fayetteville I have worked 13 years in s sewing plant, 12 years at federal mogul, 4 years at a machine shop building plane parts, and defense parts, 3 years building diesel engines and Goodman is the worst very poor management very unprofessional, no training what so ever the leaders are very hateful and hurtful no supervisional knowledge one especially name was regatta smith she will admitted woman shouldn't be there they said too much jealously I could go on and on I for sure tell everyone I talk to do not go to work for them it is the most ignorant place I have ever worked at

    Cons

    I have been working at Goodman Manufacturing full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Fayetteville, TN facility has a new plant manager now and their focus appears to be changing from a harsh and unfeeling management style to a more enjoyable and rewarding place to work. The general employee outlook is much more positive than in years and hopefully the improvements we're seeing will continue. Time will tell just how far the improvements will go, but for now we seem to be headed in the right direction.

    Cons

    There still remains much of the old management ways and it'll take time to excise them. Quality is improving but years of indifference and neglect will take time to reverse. Many bad habits remain, but hopefully the new management will see and correct them. Some supervisors still have the old harsh attitude toward employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees and respect them. Praise will bring you greater rewards than punishment.

    Worse job ever!

    Current Employee - Operator in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Operator in Houston, TX

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

    Pros

    Not many pros... a weekly check is about it. Hopefully some changes are coming.

    Cons

    Where do I start? QUALITY is nonexistent! Micromanaged to the highest level. Zero communication between departments. Very UNSAFE environment, unorganized ect!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your hourly employees! We are begging for help. Setup some kind of training for new employees. Safety could use some tweaking also.

    Current Employee - Branch Manager in Phoenix, AZ
    Current Employee - Branch Manager in Phoenix, AZ

    I have been working at Goodman Manufacturing full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Freedom when it comes to hours worked. Your manager does not micro manage as long work is getting done.

    Cons

    Most of the customers are incompetent jerks. For the most part hourly employees do their jobs, but mostly bare minimums. Who could blame them? The company has nothing in place to develop hourly employees, and is not good about promoting from within.

    Corporate is extremely out of touch with what goes on outside of Houston, TX. The training program within this company is nonexistent and they take little to no time to develop their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fight for your employees.

    Pros

    Great benefits, co-workers, and working environment. Company promotes lots of fun activities and functions outside of the company for their employee's.

    Cons

    You stay in the same position and salary (besides the 3% increase every year) for ever. The company doesn't promote much from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your hard working and loyal employees more.
