    Advice to Senior ManagementNone

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    LION squeaks not roars.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Dayton, OH

    ProsThe company although big can be family/friendly oriented. Everyone gets the same percentage bonuses, same percentage raise, and vacation time begins at the first of the year and ends at the last month of the year for everyone.

    ConsVery antiquated in thinking. Slow to advance, if at all. Senior executive administration have been here for years. The CEO is family so no one will ever get any higher on the pay scale than being his senior executive administration.

    Corporate Headquarter employees make peanuts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake the fresh, new outside opinions of incoming staff. Really listen and understand they are fresh eyes and just wanting to improve the company for the better.

    Reward employees for how well they do, not how well the company does fiscal year ending!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    BullEx one of the companies they have acquired - Very Unprofessional team

    Project Engineer (Former Employee) Albany, NY

    ProsInvolved in Design of Equipment and Electric Connections. Mostly electric field for those interested in the Electric Field.

    Cons1) Very Unprofessional: They will not care when they acquired you, they will still let you go if they find someone better.
    2) No one in the staff who are of non management positions has stayed more than 2 years with the company. (There is an extremely high turnover rate)
    3) Poor Management Skills: They have extremely bad management skills, they will not give you advice, they will not train you and they will expect you to do the work even if you are not trained for it or have never done it before.
    4) Very poor Interviewing skills: The Job description which I was interviewed for does not match at all what I was doing in the end. They assumed things during the interview and never ask about it during the process and then expect you to accomplish these things regardless and if you don't know how to do they will let you go.
    5) They don't care how much effort you put in your wok, even if you stay more than 12 hours a day working
    Over all I would not advise to work here. The people are very unprofessional and have poor management skills. This company will get rid of you in a second if they find someone better to do the job. No loyalty to anyone

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have a long way to go to improve your interviewing skills, management skills and respect for your employees

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Only friends and family of Management get promoted...

    Issue Line Worker (Current Employee) Camp Pendleton, CA

    ProsPay is good, time off is good.

    ConsDon't expect to be promoted unless you know someone... or have testicles.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore equality as far as promotions go. People that work there for years shouldn't be put on the back burner for promotions just because you have a buddy that needs a job.

    Lion Apparel Comments

    Manager (Current Employee) Dayton, OH

    ProsTime off if needed was always given.

    ConsUpper management very difficult and miro managers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementVP's have got to stop miro managing and must be postive to employees and their direct reports. VP's go directly to managers reports and give direction as well as seems to think that it is acceptable to wear employees down to make them feel they have no worth.

    Warehouse worker that is required to do all positions

    Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) Okinawa (Japan)

    ProsThere is absolutely nothing that is good about this job. Stay away.

    ConsCEO thinks that we make fire fighting equipment, we actually issue government owned military issued gear to service members. Upper management is absolutely clueless as to what their job responsibilities are. Waste government funds on a regular basis. Paid to do a single job with no benefits. But do the work of a crew of 10 with the same pay. Absolutely no raises in over 2 years after talking to management over a year ago.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire yourself and hire people that know what they are doing.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
