    Pros

    In house cafeteria and work out room. Will understand how to work hard in any non-management position. Some great leaders within management.

    Cons

    Low pay across the board compared to like positions at any other Cincinnati, OH company yet expected to work more as opposed to acquiring proper resources. Mediocrity is the standard in many divisions because of low merit amongst most associates leading to high turnover. Frugal management doesn't understand the concept of rewarding their good people and compensating associates fairly. Company in need of strategic changes but these will never take place because it is a privately owned company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep associates challenged in more ways than just high quantity of work.

    Pros

    They have a cafe? That's about it.

    Cons

    The management at this company is down right awful. They put down employees, talk behind their employyee's back, and honestly could care less about their employees. I worked 65+ hour work weeks constantly, all while other departments finger point at each other. Management lies and tell you that they will hire help, but they never do. The raises (if you're lucky to get one) don't even compete with inflation let alone the market average. Management works you like a dog. I've been told I am not allowed to leave my desk until the "task" was finished (which takes 6-8+ hours) and specifically told "that means lunch" you are not allowed to eat at your desk so basically you have to work 8 straight hours without any food. This place is by far the worst place I've ever worked. I now work some where else for a lot more money and only 40 hours of work and better benefits. So glad I left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people and treat your employees with respect!

    I worked at Standard Textile

    Pros

    The office was close to my house.

    Cons

    Terrible Management- they put people in management positions, not based on experience, but on nepotism and favoritism.

    No career path

    Bad pay

    Poor communication- it is impossible to decifer who is being honest with you and who is lying to your face.

    Privately owned- no one can hold them accountable for their actions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start valuing your employees or you're going to lose them.

    Worked there for almost 3 years, which was about 1 year too long. I highly recommend you stay away from this company.

    I worked at Standard Textile full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have their own cafeteria.

    Cons

    No recognition. You are part of the machine. Compensation is below the norm. Micromanagement. There is a prevalence of management not accepting input. As a family owned company, nepotism is high. Raises and bonuses are supposed to be based on performance. I found it to be based solely on who the boss likes. If you like that form of reward, then Standard Textile is for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your employees part of a team, not just worker drones. Review your third party health insurance. It shouldn't have to be a battle to get them to pay out when you've paid in.

    I worked at Standard Textile full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I loved the work I did. I learned alot about the Textile industry. I was given the opportunity to be heard and had a voice and was trusted with making important decisions.

    Cons

    Was more family environment in the beginning but as they grew lost the family feeling and became more corporate and hard nosed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share more of the big picture decisions with middle managers.

    I worked at Standard Textile full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of great people to work with. They do understand the balance of work and life. Lots of vacation and personal time immediately

    Cons

    No real advancement available. Family company that has nepotism throughout. Benfits are shaky. Self insured so you are constantly battling their 3rd party adminstrators which drains lots of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for high achievers outside the main families.
