    Pros

    None, seriously there aren't any

    Cons

    That is the mentality of these morons at Steelcase. They could care less about you or any of their employees. The only ones that they could give 1/2 rat's behind about are the ones in Grand Rapids. Just like more and more businesses the only thing that matters is the bottom dollar. Employees are cattle.

    Pros

    Great people to work with and peer pressures are normal. Pay is quite competitive in mid west states. Grand Rapids is a nice city.

    Cons

    A lot of outsourcing to Asia. Manufacturing is downsizing in Mid west. A very low growth industry to work at.

    Pros

    Top talent, great people to work with. Lots of opportunity to do many different things with a great support network.

    Cons

    Culture is conservative and a bit risk adverse, becoming more hierarchical and top down as it focuses on being a global player and its core customers.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget to listen to employees and pay attention to the talent leaving the company and why they are leaving.

    Pros

    Steelcase provides people with opportunities that go beyond job titles. It's big enough to offer a variety places to learn and grow in your career. In addition, the culture is all about the people. Someone described it as a culture of We, not Me and I think that sums it up.

    Cons

    Because the organization is so big, often times strategies are housed in multiple groups with little communication that funnels down to the employee level. This makes the job of alignment and continuity with our sales and customers difficult because in many cases they are told multiple stories on the same message with different variations.

    Pros

    Plenty of overtime. Vendor perks. Great Medical benefits.

    Cons

    Lower pay rates that average regional rates. Promotions based on time in service rather than aptitude or work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    Saying "no layoffs during this period" should mean that, or don't say anything and let the chips fall.
