    Great benefits, poor pay

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsExcellent benefits and retirement plan.
    A small enough company that you can make a difference.
    People tend to stay a long time. Turnover is very low.

    ConsAt one time (20 years ago), Griffith paid above average. But that is not the case now. They bring people in at a low rate but rarely give more than cost of living increases.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRe-evaluate your pay scales for skilled workers. They are below average.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good and Bad

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBenefits package, R&D, Good people, A few strong customer relationships

    ConsNo clear strategy or direction, No competitive advantage, Not interested in investing in the business, Lack of customer focus - tells customers how business works

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand what all customers want, rather than satisfying just a few customers. Sales drives the business yet is not respected throughout the organization. Develop a sales strategy - what is your differentiator?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Avoid this place

    Accounting Manager (Former Employee)
    Alsip, IL

    ProsGood benefits. A lot of the working folks were nice.

    ConsVery dishonest management. The owner pretends to be religious, so they portray themselves as a "family-oriented" employer. Don't believe it. They disrespected, passed over and back-stabbed their current employees, so they could justify sexier hires from outside the company. if you had not come from their audit firm, there was a glass ceiling in the accounting department.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen up. Dishonesty and hypocrisy are obvious. Clarity and honesty are actual legitimate choices.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
