  1.  

    Very good company with industry leading technology. Customer first focus. High standards in safety and training.

    I worked at Sperian Protection full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work life balance was great while it was Sperian. However, during the merger customer focus was diluted. Compensation and benefits were in par with industry standards.

    Cons

    During the merger management lost focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes size can be a downside if not handled orderly.

    Working for Sperian was a lesson on how not to be a poor communicator and manager.

    Not a bad place to work, but could use new upper management to regain trust in employees, and boost morale and wages.

    Pros

    One of only employers left in this depressed area. Most work here just for the health benefits. Not many jobs left in the area.

    Cons

    Unfair treatment between shop and office staff. Shop employees not respected. Wages below competition. Multi million dollar ,global company that does not compensate its employees. A lot of families work here and a lot of favoritism going on. Finger pointing and backstabbing within the whole plant. Upper Management forgets who keeps them employed. Untrained supervisors started out as hourly shop employees and became supers but forget what they went through to get there, and do not try to make a difference. Instead they all beome yes men!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weed out some of the uncaring upper management. Give incentives, boost moral. They are working overtime just to make ends meet, raises pay grades to more than slightly above minimum wage. Quit sending all the work to Mexico. Give better training, and you will better results. People are just working here because there is no where else. Make it so they WANT TO BE THERE!!!

    Pros

    The work is abundant and very challenging. The people are very nice. The company is focused on meeting with and understanding the needs of customers.

    Cons

    Many projects are undertaken with very lean resources and agressive deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with our customer focus and allocate resources to support projects important to customers.
