    A Fair/Well-Balanced Overview of Safavieh International LLC

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Port Washington, NY

    ProsSafavieh is a company with a relaxed atmosphere that provides freedom to new employee's to blossom and work independently without much delegation of duties. It is a family oriented company that understands teamwork. Management does actively listen to employees that stress their concerns and does its best to provide the right amount of understanding. The good thing about Safavieh is that one can advance with the right amount of idea's, contributions and understanding.

    The company is actively improving as it now provides dental, and vision coverage. Additionally, Safavieh is located within a good part of Long Island with immediate access to parking. Office culture at Safavieh is varied with many personalities who are quite vocale and display different "character" traits as some are quiet and other's are outspoken. The company primarily hires those for accounting, office administration, customer service, and logistical operations. Also, please don't listen to some of these other review's as they are full of bias and a little bit unfair.

    ConsThe company is undergoing active construction right now so the building is a bit unorganized. Additionally, employee's drive quite fast in the parking lot. A 401k with the standard 5% match could be offered, maybe an annual bonus/flex days. Additionally more vacation time would be fantastic.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome of the company departments should be revamped/reorganized with appointed department heads that serve as managers and report to the owner's more directly. Also, the current lunch time schedule should be removed. Last, as a result of Safavieh being a family owned business their often exists division in the decision making process. The company should also properly define job titles/roles with an improved perspective and prompt employee's more often by providing an "annual" review that encompasses a raise.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Below Average Company

    Assistant to Sales Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsThe location is great. Plenty of nice people who are laid back, nice, friendly and supportive. Nice office park to take walks in, relax and take it easy.

    ConsOwners have no regard for employees. There are no promotions as family get most good positions. The jobs are entry level and hourly pay is low. Health benefits are expensive, there is no vacation time that accrues, and no 401k. Owners do not work hard to retain employees; they come and go; office is also dirty.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees with more respect, pay market salaries and offer more in the way of benefits.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Port Washington, NY

    ProsI have been working at Safavieh for 2 years and it is a very nice family owned and operated business. great work environment with a lot of buzz over new projects and new deals. they are constantly bringing in new people and promoting their current staff.

    ConsThe office is a little bit small and because of all the expansion the space has gotten very tight. However, they are expanding the offices so it should be improving soon.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should consider building a bigger kitchen.

    Good environment for entry-level work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros+Great environment for entry-level work, and provides a wide variety of roles to applicants looking to get experience in a specific position.
    +Friendly, casual environment and co-workers. Supervisors and account leads are often easy to talk to.
    +Freedom is given to those who can get their work done properly, and more is given to whomever can produce better results.
    +The company is growing in its industry, and there is room to establish a career for those who seek it.

    Cons-There can be a noticeable disconnect with upper management, which can cause miscommunication.
    -The company can focus more on enticing employees to make careers rather than see their position as a temporary option.
    -The amount of benefits can use work (on paid holidays, health insurance coverage, etc.)
    -Location may be awkward for potential employees without cars, although there is a shuttle that travels to the nearby train station.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCurrently this company is often sought-after by fresh graduates who often don't plan on staying for more than 3 years- rather than focusing on seeking new talent, it may be more beneficial in the long run to give veteran employees more reasons to stay. It's a short-term cost for a long-term profit.

    Waste of time unless you are a Salesperson

    Logistics (Former Employee) Port Washington, NY

    ProsThey have a roof. The tea is free(no coffee though). No one is really working, so you could say its 'relaxing'.

    ConsIf you aren't involved in Sales, there's little place for you to go. Little to no oversight of daily tasks, lax physical safety in the office. Projects and responsibilities change at the whim of whoever is yelling loudest today. It's a family company; if you aren't a part of the family, there's absolutely no chance of becoming a manager.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop letting the kids run the business into the ground. Stop treating employees like they are dumb.

    Stay away

    Office Worker (Current Employee) Port Washington, NY

    ProsNothing really to be said

    ConsOwners are cheap with wages. Managers don't do anything, but starts overreacting when the stores don't mean sales quota. Not the worst place to work at, but definitely prepare/start looking for your next job as soon as possible.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
