    Pros

    Big ambitions but too small for their big picture. Great learning environment if right department. Insurance was very competitive as well as Paid vacations and holidays.

    Cons

    Can get pigeon holed at certain teams within the company. If you are not a manager you are definitely treated differently. This goes with compensation as well. That was one of the reasons why I left.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better. Offer Bonuses as incentives to keep employees engaged. Even though you are on the "Southside" of metro Atlanta you should still have competitive compensation.


  2. Political and Toxic

    Pros

    Always had a job even through the recession.

    Cons

    This division is in love with itself. Management believes they are driving the business even though Japan calls all the shots. That being said, there are way too many managers, managers that manage no one or "senior" employees that have no junior equivalents. Most department heads fall all over themselves trying to claim credit for others/employees work or attach themselves to projects to justify their salaries. Overall a toxic environment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending that you have 5000 employees and are a massive machine. Most of you could quit tomorrow with zero impact on operations or bottom line. This whole "branch" is just a storefront, purely for show. Therefore every move made is political in nature.


  3. Very limited growth potential.

    Great people to work with in non management positions. Great product. Benefits and pay are decent.

    Cons

    Very disorganized, poor communication between departments, lacking in internal support

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with the employees. Address issues within the departments instead of ignoring them.

  5. Limited opportunity to learn or advance; cronyism and nepotism are rampant, much of upper mgnt is not formally educated.

    Pros

    Competitive salaries, even keel work load

    Cons

    Rinnai is a poorly managed business. Petty people at the top with zero vision and does not like to be told the truth; no chance of being promoted unless you are one of the cronies. Management pollutes the work environment by politicizing everything even gave access to politicians from a single party to speak at a recent town hall meeting during office hours. 20% of the people do 80% of the work; management often takes credit for other peoples work to look good in the eyes of the Japanese parent company.

    Advice to Management

    Nepotism and cronyism has no place in modern business. Look beyond your own self gratification and ego. It is not all about your end of year bonus. Workers deserve to share in the bonus as well. For the most part most of you need to be schooled in business management and ethics.

    Pros

    Very resaonable medical benefits. The product is not yet mainstream. Has the opportunity to sustain sales growth if they do not implode.

    Cons

    Chaotic management. Managing from Japan. Incompetent management. No product literature.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and don't interview folks at Starbucks.

    Pros

    Great people, great product! This is one of the best places to work with outstanding workers, have great benefits, and the products are forward thinking, innovative, and best of all, green.

    Cons

    There is a lack of communication from management. Company is run on the "good ol' boy" theory and very polictical. Turnover is a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together - think three to five years ahead, not just this year.
