    Great products. Hidden talent that can't get past management roadblocks.

    Pros

    There are a lot of really good well meaning people who work for Tempur. The products are something to be proud of when talking to people outside the company about where you work. Great facilities to work in with the cafe and workout facility.

    Cons

    Lack of appreciation for facts in my department. There is a narrative that has been going for about two years regarding our performance that is not tied to reality. Any deviation from that is a no-no. There are a lot of behind that back power plays that happen in this company that really contribute to a watch your back mentality and lack of trustworthiness in middle management.

    Pros

    Great working environment. The building is state of the art, with a Starbucks and cafe onsite. The workout facility and common areas are nice, open, and well maintained. Beautiful building, and very nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Senior executives have a tendency to rule by fear. Intimidation, and some ruthless politics are employed to grab power and position in the newly merged company. If you are working at the executive level, wear Kevlar. Very unfortunate sub-culture in an otherwise great organization.

    Advice to Management

    The top HR officer should do exit interviews with employees who are released under bizarre circumstances and who have otherwise been stellar employees.

    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 Management

    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. "Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success." --Henry Ford

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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!
