    Constantly running in circles chasing yourself with no management support

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere are very many hard working people that continously drive for results. The associates work hard as a team and encourage one another. Team members always ask what can I do to help.

    ConsThe management team is constantly turning over and really does not have a clue at times of what's going on. Management does a very good job pointing the finger at everyone else but lacks the talent to lead by example because they are clueless. The merit program is a joke and they have given their employees 1% raises when they make great profit off of a case of water. The management team is unethical and needs to learn how to manage better. Nothing is consistent in the company. One month you do one way then it changes again but you end up going back to way things were done months ago. Consistency drives better results which leads to less turnover and a higher bottom line. Guess a bunch of people were sleeping when they took that economics class.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to senior management is this: you are growing to fast to keep up with the demand of your business. Therefore you can't obtain enough and the right talent to run your business. Since your management is very unethical you need to question this: do you want to keep these people running your business when they don't know what there doing or would you rather pay out lawsuits due to them being unethical. It's up to you to make the change.

    A Hot Mess

    Production Operator (Former Employee) Missouri City, TX

    ProsLearning about the beverage industry, different bottled products. Multi-tasking duties as a production operator.

    ConsWhen not supporting their staff in advancing his or her education. Company wants the staff to be brownnoser's at their beck and call. Not having a sense of organization for new lines of production.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSupport your production and warehouse staff enable have a better company, without these indivduals Niagara would not be successful now. Don't play any cat and mouse games with your staff.

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

    Run away...don't look back.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood, caring people on the production floor. State of the art equipment with the latest technology. Good place to get experience in the bottling business.

    ConsYoung, inexperienced management. Management lacks ethics and professionalism. No work-life balance. Company experiencing severe growing pains. Very high employee turnover company wide. Constant danger of termination for errors. Benefits mediocre at best.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRegain control of your company before growing more. Focus on correcting the root cause of employee turnover before losing this company completely. Employee error is a failure of management.

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

    Dead end Job!!!!!

    Maintenance Team (Former Employee) Missouri City, TX

    ProsThe workers there are awesome and laid back. Some of them are very hard working and dedicated.

    ConsThe leadership is worried about one thing only and that is their KPI reports. They don't care or respect the workers. To stuck up their own butts to notice the reason for their high turn around rate.

    The chance for growth in the company is slim to none. You wont be moving up so if you are looking for a career this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLead by example.......you have to show respect before getting respect.

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

    An Grueling Race for Undeserved Recognition

    Engineer (Current Employee) Ontario, CA

    ProsThe company is growing, so there is always work to be done; job security they'll say. The competitive work environment will keep you on your toes.

    ConsAll middle and upper-management is out for themselves in the corporate office and only concerned with moving up. Management often times does not know what they're doing. The executive level is very intelligent, but there seems to be a black hole in middle and upper management. Necessary information is unlikely to be funneled up to the executive level unless it can advance a middle/upper manager who will inevitably take all the credit.

    There is a very fine line for work/life management. As soon as you get a company phone they will not hesitate to call you at any time for things that are not urgent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGood managers take ownership for their team's mistakes, and give credit to their team members for achievements. Niagara seems to do the opposite. If you made a mistake it's entirely your fault and you'll hear about it. If you've achieved something that shows off the team you better believe your manager will tkae sole credit for it.

    High tech equipment, hard working hourly personnel and terrible management.

    Management (Former Employee) Ontario, CA

    ProsPay is reasonable and technology employed is typically state of the art.

    ConsPoor work/life balance, ridiculous schedules, biased, prejudiced and manipulative management who are willing to do anything to achieve their annual bonus; whether it's discriminating against hard working employees or cheating regulatory guidelines, it's all fair game. All childish games all the time. If you're into this kind behavior, you'll fit in well. If not, experience will be very frustrating.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGrow up and cease the unprofessional behavior!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
