    Pros

    the people on the floor.

    Cons

    I was a trainer, but couldn't train anyone right without one of bosses pulling me away all the time. Then they get mad because the transporter can't do his job. they make full time milliken jobs full time temp jobs, and dont try to transfer because they will fire you. look at me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    step back look around, the company is not doing as good as you report to your bosses.

    I worked at Milliken as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Really relaxed environment, no pressure or stress

    Cons

    Politics, no drive to get anything accomplished, no internal development of employees

    You will never get promoted unless your boss leaves or dies, even if he is no good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire from within and get rid of the people who don't accomplish anything

    I worked at Milliken

    Pros

    Since Milliken only hires only top notch associates, has strong training programs and moves associates to many different jobs within the company it is a great place to start a career.

    There is a high leve of professionalism of the company.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the company is currently experiencing a major culture change. The new young CEO is overreacting to the current economic downturn by eliminating scaling back many of the bedrocks of the company such as training programs and pay for performance.

    Growth potential is limited since a large portion of the companies products are marketed in mature and declining markets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revive your training programs and evaluate your cost cutting of management associates more in terms of contribution instead of just an associates age or salary.

    Pros

    Great job out of college. Earns you a lot of prestige in other industries.

    Cons

    Feedback about individual performance is very limited. It is a "good ol' boys" club. You work a lot of hours. A lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more feedback. Promote an environment of openness about performance.

    Pros

    It is a company that will present you with plenty of challenges to test your abilities and overall is a very professionally run company .

    Cons

    Probably not a good time to be in a textile based company with the worldwide trend of manufacturing moving to countries with low wages .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better performance feedback to employees .
