    I have been working at Myers Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is continuously growing! Pay and benefits are adequate and there are many perks. Many friendly people.

    Cons

    Hire inexperience before promoting from within. Poor work ethic is ignored. Lack of follow-thru with management. Problems are not addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to and INVESTIGATE & ADDRESS employee concerns & complaints. Offer Rewards, incentives & growth potential for employees that go above & beyond.

    Pros

    Great co-workers and not much overtime. Smaller company with many different brands for experience in manufacturing. Free parking and decent building.

    Cons

    Manufacturing is a dying industry. Poor leadership and lots of politics. No focus on good work-life balance or creative environment. They would prefer to do cube checks right at 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. to make sure you're chained to your desk. Poor attitudes, outrageous behavior and disrespectful employees are tolerated. High-achieving employees don't stay long. No perks to working there. Below average compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on improving the company culture and results will follow. Don't tolerate insubordinate behavior to avoid conflict.

    I worked at Myers Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Tickets to Cleveland Sports games are a extra perk. Strong in the Material Handling Industry.

    Cons

    Company does not show loyalty to loyal employees. Salaries and bonuses are limited at the Mid-Management level.

    Advice to Management

    Show that you care for employees that work hard and are long standing employees.

    I worked at Myers Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are good - peers and subordinates are hardworking people.

    Cons

    If you are not a male you cannot be successful. It is and "old boys club " without the southern accent.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the make up of the management team in that division, At one time there were a number of women in management roles. There is only one female left. Looks suspicious, that all those capable women are no longer with the company.

    Pros

    Flexibility for appointments. Usually out by 5. Can usually take lunches off. Free tickets to some events (if you win a raffle) for the Cavs and Indians suites. My job has diverse tasks (prevents boredom). Freedom to use the internet judiciously.

    Cons

    Not competitive pay. Limited women in senior leadership. Limited ability to move up. Raises and reviews are given with no discussion. Raises are capped. 401K "match" program is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging. When you cut your employees raise caps, don't give the CEO a huge raise above that cap! Employee morale is terrible. People aren't leaving because the economy is down, but they will when it improves. You are willing to do the things needed to improve morale and the company and instead want to keep the same old school manufacturing mentality.
