    Pros

    As long as you work hard, and take care of your responsibilities, the work environment and culture is great! Managers look our for their team members, train their team members, and treat us with respect. Managers are very open with us and let us know what is going on and when. I never feel like I'm left in the dark. I've recommended Husqvarna to several friends and family.

    Cons

    I've been here 6 months, haven't found one yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!!

    Pros

    None, not one thing is good for the employee.

    Cons

    You never do anything right. You are watched like a hawk every second. They even say something about you going to the bathroom. Everything said is negative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find some managers who care about the employees and not just about each other and their little games.

    Current Employee - Blue Collar in Swainsboro, GA

    Pros

    The only pro there are are the employees, Not the manager's. The employees get the job done with little to no help or encouragement from the Manager's.

    Cons

    The owners and managers are so detached from the employees it's disheartening! They scarcely come out of the office and get to know the people doing the jobs. They care less about safety until someone gets hurt, then they try to find fault in the person who got hurt so they can protect their safety record.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get involved or get out! The owners need to visit more and talk to the employees and find out who's really producing their product. If the public knew how they ran their business they would and should refuse to buy their products!

    Pros

    The company does have a nice corporate office in Charlotte. There are some very nice people who work at the company.

    Cons

    There is little room for advancement. The pay is disappointing. It is fine to work there if you need a job, but you will likely be disappointed and will start looking again. You can sometimes feel as though your talent is wasted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There was recently a management change in the North American operations. Employees are hopeful that this new management can help turn things around.

    Current Employee - Supervisor in Orangeburg, SC

    Pros

    Has a wonderful benefits package for permanant employees. Treats employees okay. Hours are pretty decent in the off season.

    Cons

    Busy season long hours and not enough pay. No incentive or bonus program for any of its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get involve with your employees on base level. To many manager's sit behind a desk and expect high expectations without coaching or mentoring your people especially supervisors. Supervisor use to have bi-monthly ommunication meetings, but for some reason this has stopped.
