    Oh the frustration that results from misplaced management.

    Senior Level (Current Employee)
    Cartersville, GA

    ProsThe security that comes from working for a company backed by Warren Buffet is nice. The only thing that beats that is a salary hourly position-yes paid OT. The Brand teams are smart and are utilizing the expertise of some talented and smart agencies. Great benefits. Lots of sincerely good people.

    ConsMisplaced Management. Too many unqualified people in leadership positions. Lack of process and follow through. Reactionary. (Departmentally specific)

    Advice to Senior ManagementSurvey departments/divisions (not just a multiple choice survey). You are missing vital feedback.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Worked for them before and would work there again

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
    Cartersville, GA

    ProsCompetitive pay for area. Good managers. Good benefits.

    ConsLike any real world corporation they need you for the hours you are hired. If you are late or out so many times they will write you up, but that was no a problem for me. The biggest down side was no sick time. If you/child are sick you had to use vacation days or accrue an occurrence (point)

    Advice to Senior ManagementPeople genuinely get sick. Sick days would be a big plus. And training new managers without promoting the trainers into management position gets discouraging. College degrees are not the Holy Grail

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

    Horrible

    Plant Worker (Current Employee)
    Cartersville, GA

    ProsAt this point, I can't think of any.

    ConsIf you are on 2nd or 3rd shift, good luck making it to 1st.

    Plant workers reach level 3 and the vast majority will never receive another raise.

    They will schedule 7 day work weeks at the drop of a hat, even weeks immediately preceding Christmas.

    Equipment (especially computers and lift trucks) are left in disrepair for months at a time. No one is on staff at the plant to keep the computers working.

    If you ask for any kind of understanding for a particular situation, forget it. You can work here 5 years or be fresh out of orientation, it doesn't matter to them.

    Employees are merely files in drawer, numbers to be cut and necessary evils to upper management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour employees feel it when you consider them to be no more than an expense. Your reward for a year of profitability, Pride Day (actually 1 1/2 hour), is terrible - a very few get a little prize and most leave with nothing. It's insulting. If you want to show your appreciation, write checks; do not set up a ring toss.

    You have cut labor yet spend money on ridiculous programs and positions.

    Show us a little respect by scheduling more thoughtfully and do not pretend to show appreciation with Pride Day or food.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    all production. no concern about quality

    Manufacturing (Current Employee)
    Cartersville, GA

    Prosgood pay and benefits in a bad economy

    Conseveryone is job scared and let too much go on that shouldn't happen. They won't listen to their employees and expect you to do impossible tasks. You can only do quality work if given enough time and help to accomplish the job. Too many employees slacking and refusing to do their job but management won't listen.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet out on the floor and see what's really going on...listen to people. Have time studies done on jobs.

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