    I have been working at Sweda Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are nice but that's it!

    Cons

    Low pay and you will NEVER get a raise unless you threaten to quit and they need you
    They do not match your 401K
    The company Christmas party is a 30 minute lunch inside the dusty warehouse
    Promotions are based on if you are liked rather than your job performance
    Lack of communication within departments and no clear direction
    There are a lot of bitter employees that are unhappy and have given up on excelling because they haven't been rewarded
    Upper management pits employees against each other and gossips about each other

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look up how Google treats their employees. A happy employee makes for a prospering company, The more you appreciate the people that work for you and acknowledge them, the better your business will boom. Match 401Ks, a nice Christmas party outside of a dirty warehouse, and give raises (it's cheaper than the monthly time and energy you spend rehiring and training!!!).

    Pros

    Employees are nice people and good to work with. Most genuinely want to do a good job.

    Cons

    Employees are not empowered to do their jobs. Promotions are arbitrary and not based on performance, mainly on nepotism and when people management feels are "key people", threaten to leave. Many are unhappy but too afraid to voice opinions because management has created this atmosphere. Employees are pitted against each other by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop belittling the employees by referring to them by less-than-favorable terms ("kids"), and using the intercom system instead of shouting names when you need to speak to specific individuals. Clean up the books so that everything can be tracked easily and you can see straight-off who is actually working hard and who isn't - begin a job-tracking system so employees can track how much time they are spending on one job.
