    I worked at Pride Mobility Products full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They seem to make a good product. There are a lot of great employees.

    Cons

    Although there are a lot of great employees there are a few who are not the kind of people you would want to work with. So this person/people can be disrespectful to employees and the management does not seem to want to listen to any criticism. So even if you are very reliable and an exceptional employee if this person/people want you gone, then you are at risk. Don't get too comfortable at Pride Mobility Las Vegas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good look at your employees and make sure they are leading by example as to the kind of employee behavior you want to see in the facility. You will not keep good employee's if you allow some to walk all over other people with no consequences.

    I worked at Pride Mobility Products full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's hard to find good things to say about Pride..... they have alright insurance benefits I suppose.
    I guess you could say that the few co-workers who aren't back stabbers or constantly complaining about how much they hate their jobs make going to work everyday bearable.

    Cons

    Raises and promotions are virtually non existent unless you're part of the good ole boys club, then you can expect your face to be plastered on Pride Today every other week congratulating you on your new position as the "Insert what ever ridiculous job title you can here". You don't even have to worry about HR calling you to their office to discuss why you openly degrade the masculinity and size of a director in front of their department when your in this club. And yes I am refering to the same person that has been brought up in previous reviews on glassdoor except I share mine with first hand experience being in the same room on multiple occassions.

    The atmosphere at this place is poor. And by poor I mean it's hard not to go an hour without hearing or talking to someone who is explaining how much more they hate their job than everyone else. Everyone secretly is looking for another job and productivity would probably increase tremendously if IT blocked job search sites because then everyone would have to find something else to do for the first 2 hours of the day.

    The pay is ok I guess if your ok with a below average salary for your career field, and don't bother trying to negotiate with them because they aren't concerned with the quality of they're workforce..... Just the price of it. Like I said in the title Pride is a good place to use as a "stepping stone" not a place to stay for the long haul.

    Pro for me but Con for Pride...... I learned what bad and immoral buisness practices looks like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm just going to use this section to call out the HR department because Management doesn't listen to advice, until what you tell them is going to go wrong actually goes wrong. Back to HR..... It's very obvious that you post fake reviews on here. Pay attention to the problems being brought up on here and work to resolve them instead of masking them.

    Pros

    Hard to find opportunity where this job is located. There aren't many employers this large in the area that also have an international reach.

    Cons

    Lots of layoffs. This is used to intimate current employees with the treat of being cut. So don't ask for a raise, less work or complain about anything. Keep your head down and you MIGHT stay if your working 10x harder than your coworkers AND making less than them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's no room for advancement. There is upper management and lots of workers. There's no in-between. What management is doing is also NEVER transparent. It makes every task a mystery.

    Pros

    Not very strict management style, personal matters are considered reasonably. I guess if you can play the game well, it is very good place to work for.

    Cons

    Game playing too much, everyone is trying to stack others on the back. It seems the only way to climb up..................

    Friends found while working here

    Cons

    Management was very poor. There was a very large move to make everyone an Alpha employee. In the years between 2011 and 2013 75% of the office workforce was let go and partially rehired. Many good hard working people were let go or left on there own due to the stress and negative, toxic environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your staff, talent.

    There is absolutely NO training and I mean NO training out side of what you do on your own. Very Poor reputation for customer support, and product distribution, I am seriously not sure how this company makes money.

    Pros

    Awesome medical benefits, I have a fantastic manager who cares about my well-being and co-workers who care about what they're doing and are always willing to help out. Plus, like everyone says, what we do here makes a difference in people's lives.

    Cons

    The wages aren't great, even for this area. But again, the medical benefits are solid and I know a lot of people who work here because of them when they could have left for more money to go elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First of all, I would tell anyone who is reading this site to research Pride as a possible place to work, to not listen to the really negative reviews or the really positive ones. Pride is just like any other company - if you have a good manager and good co-workers,and you like what you do, you're going to love working here. If you don't like your manager, or you don't like what you do, then you won't like it here. But that's all subjective, and it's like anywhere else you'll ever work. I read the last post and had to respond because it felt like I was reading about some other company for the most part, not the one I work at. I've never had a Vice President or manager yell at me or curse at me, and I haven't seen them do it to any of my co-workers. I've met a lot of the VP's at Pride and have had a positive experience with almost all of them. Not all of them say hello in the hallway, but neither do some of the other people that work here. That doesn't make it a bad place to work, as there are way more people who DO say hello and are really friendly. There are some really awesome people who work at Pride, talented, funny, kind people, who really care about what they do. There are also others who for some reason or another aren't happy, or they have a legitimate axe to grind, but again, that's just like at any other company on the planet.

    To knock the COO for not knowing people's names is a bit petty - he recently met with our department and asked us if we had questions or concerns, and seemed genuinely willing to listen to us. Who cares if he doesn't know all of our names? There are like a thousand people who work here. I'd be more worried if he DID know all of our names, because I'd rather he focus on making the company better than trying to remember if a guy in Tech Services goes by Bob or Rob or whatever. And to be mad because they gave us a free lunch with vending money? Okay, so it's not like the greatest thing in the world, but how is it something to get mad about? "What? They gave me a free lunch? How dare they!" I mean, come on, people. I also fact checked and there IS a Morale and Motivation committee, so I'm not sure who the last reviewer asked in HR because that's wrong. I was even told that HR runs the thing, so I asked and was told - by HR - when and where it meets each month. Not that I particularly want to be on it, but it does exist. Also, I got a raise this year, as did the rest of my department and a few others I know about, so to say that no one got raises is also inaccurate.

    Even though it may seem like it, my overall point is not to attack the last reviewer, because it's their opinion and clearly they see things differently than I do. My point is to demonstrate that everyone has their own perspective on things, so if you're looking at Pride as a place to work, talk to as many people as possible and then judge for yourself. For what it's worth, In my opinion, I'm very happy here, and see myself staying here for a very long time.

    My advice to management would be this - if what the last person said about the financials is true (which it may or may not be, as they were wrong on a couple of things), keep focusing on making better products and making the company more profitable, and pass more of that on to the work force so that the wages here are more competitive for not only the area but for the field people are in. I would also highly recommend that you not waste your time worrying about what a few people out of a thousand are saying on a web site, hiding behind their anonymity (yes, I'm being hypocritical) because they don't speak for everyone. Please instead focus on doing what you can to make the company stronger, so that Pride is around for a very long time and so we - the employees - can grow with it, professionally, personally and financially.

    I have been working at Pride Mobility Products full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Helping people that need the products produced. Good manager when it comes to certain things. Some good co-workers

    Cons

    First of all. I would like to adress a few things. Your comment about a raise tells me that you are hourly non-exempt. So you are correct that you did get a raise. As for the boss that you said you love. He has not seen one in 2 years. Raises were only given to hourly people this year and no one last year. So to say you know the way things are when you are able to speak for 10% of the company speaks to part of the problem. People following blindly without question or any real knowledge.

    Secondly the fact that you are salary non exempt tells me that your position answering phones barely puts you in a role that you would ever interact with a vp. Nothing was said about managers. Passing a vp and saying hi does by no means count as interaction. To use the reasoning that someone who says hi in passing and that you have never seen them flip out is crazy. By that same reasoning hitler must have been a good guy, since we did not personally see any of the injustices he was responsible for and I am sure he must have said hi to some people. The majority of the posts on here (not just one) speak to the complete disrespect our VP's show people.

    As for the lunch, you are correct. A free lunch is a great thing. And we are more than happy to receive it. My frustration comes from the fact that our HR posts about it in a manner that the act deserves sainthood. To bring that into your argument tells me that you did not understand the previous post or the point that was trying to be made.

    As for why vp's should know peoples names. You are correct. I don't care what variation of the name you use. The problem is that not knowing people's names puts you in a strange conundrum. How do fire people that you feel are not performing if you do not know who they are or what they do. There has been many cases where the COO spotted people in passing and didn't like how they didn't look busy enough and said to fire them. So much so, that 2 of the people that he had fired were brought back shortly after because the point was raised that they were actually good workers. There has been cases of him seeing people at the copier in R&D talking about an episode of duck dynasty in passing, that he has requested firings for (and the managers would not question the command in fear of there own job). All the while not knowing the names or even what they do. What makes this worse is that the same person calling for blood over a 2 minute conversation at the copier, is the same person that booby trapped another vp's office with a fire extinguisher, filled another's desk with packing peanuts, left during work hours to steal the suitcase of an out of town VP that was in on business. My thoughts are that if you have time to figure a way for an extinguisher to spray when someone opens the door then you have time to learn people's names.

    As for the motivation committee. Ask to see the last meeting minutes. The post that HR made was to address all of the negativity. It was something that was going to be started in response to all of the recent changes. When it was written on here by HR, it was written as if it existed. They may have hurried up and started it this week to save face. If you ask to see the meeting minutes from past meetings you would realize they have not had a single meeting prior to this week. To believe everything at face value is crazy.

    In closing, you are correct there are some happy people. But this does not detract from the facts that I have stated. And for those facts to be questioned by a tech phone operator that does not know the company outside of there little area is preposterous. How many meetings have you had with VP's. Up until 8 months ago the R&D area was locked from you, so where does your knowledge of its inner workings come from. As for the COO coming to your group to speak with you. Consider yourself lucky. Yours is the only group within the company he has done that for. To speak of the truth you must first be able understand it, know what you are speaking about, and look from an angle other than your own. I am speaking from first hand knowledge. To say that VP's do not speak down to people when multiple people on here have confirmed it, is pure ignorance at its worst. I would assume from your comment that you are in contact with the VP's and COO at all times. The purpose of the postings on here are to tell real stories of interactions within the company to give people light into it so they can make and educated decision if they want to work at the place, not to question another's post. As for HR questioning posts and asking people to come forward so they can address them. This comment was made from someone who's office is not even accessible. You need to walk through another office to even get to there office. It makes it more like speaking with the wizard of OZ than a caring individual.
