    Pros

    Strong performers still exist within all levels of the workforce. The opportunity to become a very strong and promising company is evident, however the current decisions being made are entirely short term focused.

    Cons

    The company is building it's future like a sprint instead of a marathon for lasting success. Lack of true combined company teamwork is resulting in building the new company on a foundation of sand. Workload has doubled and sometimes tripled while headcount has steadily reduced. Outsource (Tempur) versus insource (Sealy) philosophies are clashing and continuously feed the internal "us vs them" work environment. Evidence of this can be found in the reviews listed on this site. The positives are primarily coming out of Tempur HQ located in Lexington from Tempur management members, while the negatives are primarily coming from Sealy locations around the country from multiple levels. Lots of talking, but little successful doing. The unfortunate truth is that this company has transformed into one that focuses only on the bottom line with less and less regard for the customer base and employee workforce. Lots of Directors and VP level managements personnel currently exploring opportunities with other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually involve subject matter experts and process owners when determining future combined company processes. Spending a lot of time implementing new combined processes by appointed project leaders who are "available" but lack the knowledge or qualifications that would be beneficial for long term success. The result is having to circle back to constantly correct the process on second and third attempts once the process owners point out issues. This is wasting time and money while creating internal conflict. Review the employee survey results and compare the opinions.

    Pros

    Fair pay with good 401k and bonus program. Stress and negativity will out way the paycheck soon, as it has for many high quality staff that have left Tempur-Sealy for other company's in the past year.

    Cons

    Micro managing kills productivity. Hostile attitudes are rewarded. No ethics with staff. Work load has tripled, while benefits are being cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a culture overhaul, terminate director's and manager's that don't promote cooperation and teamwork. Consider a pier and staff review format.

    Pros

    No real supervisory leadership to speak of in certain departments. Ability to work on your own pace and skill level

    Cons

    No real supervisory leadership to speak of in certain departments. The training program is non existent, safety is like a watchdog with no teeth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give everyone from management on down a drug test. You will never change what you tolerate. If you say you are going to do something - do it!

    Pros

    mon-fri work schedule well it was when I worked for them.

    Cons

    Management constantly complaining about their loss of revenue and that it was due to the cost of employees wages and their benefits yet would drive back from Montana to Portland with an empty trailer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop talking about your kaizen principals and actually do some improvements that are needed instead of cutting pay and benefits due to the fact that is the easiest but only a short term fix

    Pros

    Tempur-Sealy offers a good work environment, and stresses teamwork and communication. The company is very focused on continuous improvements and employee engagement.

    Cons

    The work schedule can be hectic at times. The company is in the process of integrating the former 'Tempur' and 'Sealy' organizations, and some corporate functions are in a state of flux.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on high quality products and customer satisfaction
