  1. Good Companh

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Pomona, CA

    I have been working at Henkels & McCoy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good management, but some people lack motivation. Fun place to work. Would recommend to others. I plan on staying here for a while.

    Cons

    Some of the workers lack motivation, and the productivity of the company suffers for that. This company could be much better if some people were more motivated.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to either motivate some of the employees or to get new employees that have motivation, in order for the company to run more smoothly.

    Pros

    Generally good office environment. Not a slave shop. Good on paying for outside education.

    Cons

    Do not make an attempt to professionally reward the biggest contributors.. Internal crony politics and family relatives seem to be the basis for advancement.. Reviews held lower than rational with trivial categories.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to those who do the heavy lifting.and recognize the true performers. Don't become a haven for lazy and under motivated..

    Pros

    You have minimal healthcare for family, free parking, decent building but crouded. They have spell check but some Senior people refuse to use it. There computer system is one step up from hand written notes.

    Cons

    Stepping stone to better job, better off avoiding

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and start over with managers who have real hands on experience and the education to back it up. You will never get the projects end off the ground when your selling boat anchors in the desert.

    Pros

    Free parking, excellent low-cost cafeteria, profit sharing in 'good' years, company matched IRA contributions to certain level, short 'vested' schedule, year end bonus (amount varies). Growing diversity of staff is encouraging, yet slow at senior levels.

    Cons

    Mediocre health benefit package with high co-pay. Archaic vacation/sick policies. Arbitrary policies regarding stock ownership opportunities. Rigid yet non-uniformly applied zero drug/alcohol enforcement policy on national level.

    Advice to Management

    Liberalize vacation, sick time, and family leave policies, allow rollovers for unused days for use in medical emergencies; de-emphasize conservative worldview at company functions; recognize and encourage more ethnic and gender diversity at all levels.

    Pros

    Established company. Don't think you have to worry about getting your paycheck. Pay is ok bureviews, in my case it was at or slightly below market. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Where do I start!! First, the company is not structured for this century. Very much a "we've done it this way for the last 90 years and we'll keep doing it that way". Very little diversity. Very much, eastern, white christian environment. Quality of workmanship is lower than industry standard, in my opinion, because the schedule is created at headquarters and managed daily. So if you were supposed to have something done today and to do it "right" will take more time than allotted, you need to finish it any way you can so it works. Its' all about the numbers. During my tenure didn't make wise investments in emerging market and where they did make investments, they grow impatient with them almost from the beginning. Very siloed organization even within division with management in conflict so it takes a long time to get things done and often your end up having to negotiate between fueding managers. Gives virtually no responsibility to those outside of management. Not forward thinkers. Limited job security as they will lay you off in a second if it suits their immediate needs. Safety culture is a good thing, but the state purpose of that culture is not so much about the employees but at least publicly withint he company focused on reducing the costs resulting from accidents and injuries. Remember, it is a family owned business with a lot of family mouths to feed so everything is about today's profit, not about investment in a greater profit tomorrow.

    Advice to Management

    Purge and diversify. While being 90 years old has some benefits, when the company is running like it is the middle of last century, it will have continuing trouble competing. The world does not revolve around the way H&M headquarters thinks it should. Working for another company in the same space which is very much different in that it is run by people who delegate to the field, are focused more on doing what it takes to get the business, keeping processes and structural layers at absolute mimimums, actively working to have a diversified workforce and put not only the safety of the employees as a priority but also the welfare and family lives of the employees. Bottom line, is I have been able to accomplish way more in terms of volume of business, the types of business and profitability of business than I could ever accomplishj and Henkels & Destroy (the nickname in our market).
