Once a great place....

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Oshkosh, WI

I worked at Hoffmaster full-time for more than 8 years

ProsCo-workers were great! I really enjoyed the day to day interaction with everyone.

ConsThere are way too many levels between the guy who runs the machine and the guy who runs the company. With only 300+ employees, you shouldn't need 7 layers of management,.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou should do a climate survey to get a sense of how the employees are feeling. Not the best environment ... people do not feel they are a valued asset to the organization.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Hoffmaster has a history of collusion between long term employees who view new employees as a threat.

I worked at Hoffmaster

ProsOpportunities for making a solid impact on profit are abundant. Unfortunately that is because skills and work methods at Hoffmaster are far behind the times. One must tread very carefully and involve key long term managers and gain their support before making suggestions or taking action to try new methods or teach new skills.

ConsLong term employees are threatened by new employees with new knowledge and skills. They have a history of colluding to get rid of any new employee who, by attempting to improve results, might expose the lack of knowledge and failure to use modern work methods that many long term employees possess.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe owners of the company should hire an outside consulting firm to investigate the quality of the decisions and the culture at Hoffmaster in Oshkosh. Complete confidentiality must be assured to employees to extract the facts. Tenure of new (professional) employees should be investigated.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
