I have been working at International E-Z UP full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – The people I worked with are great people who made it a friendly place to work. Nice products but didn't evolve over the past years
Cons – Far too expensive compared to competitors products
Advice to Senior Management – Trust that the people you hire are capable of doing the jobs they're hired for. If you don't trust them, it doesn't say much for your skill in choosing people. Communicate with people in an open and honest manner. They're intelligent enough to understand what's going on and what needs to be done. Quit discouraging people from doing the best job they can
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at International E-Z UP
Pros – The work schedule is flexible and they do work with you around family issues. If you like a small "family owned" feel to your work environment, then it might be a good fit.
Cons – Unfortunately after working here for many years E-Z UP has become a dictatorship where suggestions are rarely taken from anyone that is on the front lines of the organization. They want "Yes" men and women who fall in line with the direction from the top alone. This company used to be the leader in portable shelters, but with the introduction of other major players (some who used to work for E-Z UP and got tired of the corporate philosophy and formed their own companies) they have fallen behind in quality and innovation. I would say that a good portion of the executive management are un-qualified to operate in their job capacity and really don't care to make any changes to improve the internal operation or culture of the company. The morale within the company is very low and long term employees are jumping ship. Salaries are up to 25% lower than industry standard and they get away with it because of the economy. They would rather pay pennies on the dollar for and do everything in their power to pay the least amount possible. They pay cheaper wages to the folks that do 80% of the work so the executive management team and owners can hoard as much as they can. The management philosophy will make you think twice about doing anything out of the ordinary to benefit the company.
Advice to Senior Management – Listen to your employees and be willing to look beyond the almighty dollar. If you instill a sense of empowerment in your employees I think you will be amazed at the results. When employees know they are being taken seriously it is amazing what dedication could be produced and with that success will follow.
