    I worked at Hussmann full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great team working there. Lots of seasoned veterans there that know what they're doing.

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to care about the employees under them. They only care about the numbers and how they can succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your employees and they will work harder for you.

    I have been working at Hussmann full-time

    Pros

    Great holiday pay and decent amount of days off for vacation.

    Cons

    Sad that they cut our sick days from 6 days to 3 days. Also we have too many managers/supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We have too many managers/supervisors. When a problem arises everything just get forward on to one manager to the next. We don't see instant action but a whole lot of waiting around for a solution or an answer.

    Pros

    I worked in the finance area and even had a young new manager and he was a okay to work for no complaints. Fair managers all doing the best they could.

    Looking back the only con was the mice in the building. But worked next to a dump so you have to expect it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing negative to say. Everyone was doing what they were suppose to do.

    I worked at Hussmann full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the team environment at our plants location. Also, the manager were always challenging use with special projects.

    Cons

    Lack of advancement at the plant level. It was hard to advance other than moving to the corporate headquarters, but their was laterally group within the plants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should list other opportunities at other plant locations in a come area or website location. It was very difficult to hear about other open positions at other plant locations.

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

    Pros

    Best - good pay, lots of different systems increases knowledge/experience, great co-workers, tuition reimbursement. Some managers are flexible with hours (such as letting you come in late if you have an early appointment). Others are very strictly 8-5 with assigned, unchangeable lunches, etc.

    Cons

    Worst - management is unresponsive to employees, lots of different systems that don't work together, management focuses on numbers, rather than customers, little chance for advancement. It's all about the money and hitting goals regardless of how this affects employees and/or service. Time-off policies are not consistent. VERY POLITICAL.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN to you employees, to your customers, to your suppliers. Reward those who go the extra mile to get things done. Quit cutting personnel to barely functional teams. Take a chance and try adopting new ideas.

    I have been working at Hussmann part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are usually quite competitive. The work atmosphere is generally friendly and relaxed. Senior leaders are approachable.

    Cons

    The company is highly functionalized / siloed. Many people want to stay in their swim lane. Cross functional work seems to congregate to a few people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. If you want people to break down silos, stop being so defensive of your functional turf.
