    I worked at Pelican Products full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great product line and concepts. Engineering was pleasant to work with - one of the only departments that I can say that about. The marketing for the product was great and evolved.

    Cons

    Most upper management has been part of the start and were promoted based on seniority and not level of expertise, know how or qualifications. Very closed minded and sadly most have had no other experience besides Pelican making their limitations great. A good amount of managers do not have much of a clue-this includes Purchasing, Planning, Accounting and HR. Very scary and detrimental to the overall day to day operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to ideas, educate management by sending them to interpersonal skills classes and other relevant seminars.

    It is all about the money.

    Pros

    Great product line. Best in the industry. Have strong reputation in industry despite recent missteps of past few years. Will survive poor management team.

    Cons

    Worst management team ever. Every decision revolves around getting company ready to resell at the expense of customer service and quality. Most dysfunctional sales structure I have ever encountered. More internal competition between divisions than external competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new management team that cares.

    I have enjoyed working at Pelican as it absorbs my former company Hardigg Industries.

    Pros

    Pelican works to make the employee experience as positive as possible in a difficult time in the market.

    Cons

    Pelican has had some growing pains as it absorbs Hardigg industries that was built on a different business model. Pelican was a marketing company that happened to sell cases. Hardigg was an engineering company that happened to sell cases. Merging what the 2 do has been difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work in trying to understand and develop the combined business model. Tough decisions were made early on by executives did not understand the Hardigg business model.

    I worked at Pelican Products

    Pros

    Good, product and great marketing presence. A call brand in the case industry. They hold to their guns when compared to other companies products and never backdown on quality controls.

    Cons

    Internal management of service is a bit combersome. Some of the lines of communication are disrupted with certain individual not taking ownership of particular issues when confronted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't really have any advice. The best of luck to all that work for them. Most of the management is spot on and easy to work with.
