    Pros

    Friendly environment I had a cool zone leader and co-workers. The work was easy and I worked 1st shift so your day went fast.

    Cons

    I was working through a temp service and so they don't really hire in the company anymore. Its a far drive and you have to wear steel toe boots my feet was hurting everyday until I got use to it.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and give bonuses out to the ones how come on time and is there everyday. And for Christmas give a gift card or turkey,

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Steelcase full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is hugely innovative in furniture design and has great products overall.

    Cons

    The company lacks diversity and women in leadership in the U.S. workforce, looks for types to fit the Steelcase mold (traditional and conservative), and has a false sense of "family" culture. Everyone is spread in so many different directions and management changes tend to benefit managers, not employees that are actually in the field selling.

    Advice to Management

    Be more empathetic and less bottom line only focused. There's a place and ability to balance both.

    I worked at Steelcase full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are decent, considering this day and age. Also, the offices are generally top-notch - which one would assume since it is an office furniture company

    Cons

    In order to succeed in this company, in the finance department, you need to be a man. If not - forget about it.

    Advice to Management

    Many advice to management would be to start paying attention to women in the workplace as actual workers, not just stupid people.
