    I have been working at SAF-HOLLAND full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Recent public company but maintaining values of it's former 100 year plus family ownership. Values employees and provides a good work/home balance.

    Cons

    With recent merger company is much larger so must get used to accomplishinging goals/project with a much larger group. For the most part everyone is very cooperative.

    Pros

    The benefits are good. Insurance thru Blue Cross Blue Shield. They only match up to 4% of 401 (k) contributions. They do pay you weekly. I mean weakly. If you enjoy not being able to pay your basic bills, this is your company.

    Cons

    Like most companies, you are just a number. You will be replaced tomorrow when they decide its your time to go. We always say as soon as you walk through the door on your first day, they are looking for a reason to walk you right back out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its better to spend a little money wisely than a lot of money foolishly.

    I have been working at SAF-HOLLAND full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best reason to work there is the benefit package. The health insurance is top notch and the company does match 401K contributions.

    Cons

    The management is clueless about running a diverse organization. There are no minorities or women in executive positions (very few in management at all), and the company is more reactive than proactive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should take more of a hands on role with the individual plants in order to know what really takes place on a regular basis.

    I worked at SAF-HOLLAND

    Pros

    The pay was very good. Within my own department I was treated with respect for my ability and knowledge to do any work I was given. Their benefits were very good.

    Cons

    There was lots of politics in the day to day workings of a job. They work their employees too hard and keep putting more and more on people. There were "favorites" who were allowed to continue to stay at the company even if they did not do much if any work. Makes it much harder to work there for all the other good employees. Upper management would not necessarily deal with "very problem" employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to deal with problem people and get rid of them if need be. They need to understand the jobs each employee is doing and be sure who they let go and who they keep.
