    I have been working at Steelcase full-time

    Pros

    Solid company, well managed at a strategic level, fine product solutions and well positioned as a thought-leader in this market sector

    Cons

    Field management quite variable from very good to "not so much". Silos exist throughout the organization and lead to some confusion, from product logic to field management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure you are listening to inputs that go broader and deeper than direct reports

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

    Pros

    Decent benefits, not much else to brag about

    Cons

    Top management forces you to work under threat of firing you or doing away with your job. Management is "always" right and you are always wrong, there is no trust. I learned that you cannot trust your immediate boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People in Michigan are not better than people from other states.

    Pros

    Stable company, very progressive work environment in Grand Rapids but other locations are lacking any of that culture.

    Management is completely out of touch with what inspires employees to do great things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the little wins, encourage your employees and recognize them for their hard work and accomplishments.

    Pros

    they promote within the company first, fairly good benefits.

    Ever since they went public, the culture of the company went from a family environment to more of a corporate focus.

    Go back to the old days and focus on the employee, a happy employee is a productive employee.

    Former Intern - Product Marketing Intern in Grand Rapids, MI

    I worked at Steelcase as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    I worked with a very talented team that was extremely knowledgeable in their field and other aspects of the company. The people as individuals were really easy to get along with and enjoyable to spend time with. I received very good pay, especially for an intern. Their products are very innovative as Steelcase strides to stay ahead of the market and their competitors through extensive research. Steelcase"practices what the preach" and allow their workers lots of flexibility.

    Cons

    While I was only an intern, I didn't experience this first-hand but in many cases I saw that it is difficult to get promoted and move up the corporate ladder. There isn't always usually much variation in the day-to-day schedule.
