    Pros

    Excellent benefits, matching 401k, good work/life balance in general. Great family environment and good people all around. Family atmosphere and some excellent cross-functional coworkers who are serious about their work.

    Cons

    Some of the leadership seems to have no clue with product line problem areas, some of which are significant. Instead of regrouping they tend to sweep the dirt under the rug and buy their time, or blame others. This is the cancer of the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get audited by an outside consultant and carefully review the results.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Tinley Park, IL

    Pros

    Good benefits, 401K match, New corporate headquarters.

    Cons

    Lots of inner circles which most of the times work against them selves. Within the last 5 years the company has changed from a family owned company that cared about its employees and products to a company that was more concerned with following the industry standard and volume of products sold.. Quality of products tanked once production was sent over seas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to practice what they preach. Promote from within stop passing up internal qualified talent.

    Former Employee - Lower Management  in  Tinley Park, IL
    Former Employee - Lower Management in Tinley Park, IL

    Pros

    After 36 years of above average appraisals Upper Management decided that it was time for me to retire. Best thing that ever happened to me. Made me go out and get a real job!

    Cons

    If you aren't related or good friends to a Caveney family member you are destined to be mistreated. HR lies to everyone who isn't in upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do the world a favor and get lost!
