    Stop backstabbing other management to get that next promotion

    Pros

    The people really care about each other. Definite room for upward mobility. Great company values and work life balance

    Cons

    Demanding of your time. As a territory manager you have to be very organized, and you sometimes will feel pressure from above to complete tasks appropriately.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to listen more to people below you's opinions. We are the ones in the trenches day to day trying to get things rolling for the company.

    Pros

    Great culture and people..Shaw is a pioneer in the flooring industry evident in their commitment to advance their manufacturing culture.

    Cons

    Greater cross-training could reduce the 'silo' effect that many long-term employees have.

    Pros

    The pay is great as well as the medical and dental benefits. It is a laid back environment. Associates tend to work well with each other.

    Cons

    No job stability. Management doesn't communicate well and business is in a downward spiral. Ninety percent of the workforce are convicted felons. Facility is dusty, nasty, and it isn't climate control.

    Advice to Management

    To become receptive to diverse ideas. Spend some money in renovating the bathrooms and supervisors office. Take some professional classes on how to be a leader in todays workforce.

    Pros

    I worked at Plt. 52, samples cutting department and loved it. We were like family and worked very well together in that department. The supervisors I worked under during those years were very encouraging and helped out. The insurance was great and the benefits.

    Cons

    There is not many cons. If I had to choose something, I'd say that at sometimes of the year there are layoffs, but that was not very often in our department.
