    I have been working at Weber-Stephen Products as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Consistently working, always something to do. A really laid back environment and friendly coworkers. During my 3 month internship, I only made copies like an 'Intern" once, which is pretty good if you ask me.

    Cons

    Didn't see much of management around the office or involved in my projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No-door policy. Make yourself more open and known to your employees.

    I worked at Weber-Stephen Products

    Pros

    Fantastic company with lots of growth potential and a lot of really experienced personnel willing to work with you and help you grow.

    Cons

    Some people seemed a bit hesitant to try new things in order to grow the business, a bit "old-fashioned' you could say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire college grads/younger business professionals, the company could really benefit from new ideas and ways of doing business.

    I have been working at Weber-Stephen Products full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The department does not ask a lot from its officers. To pass the time you can use their computers and there are no restrictions on the internet. Customer service is not very important to the department. Very rarely you have to deal with security problems. A normal day consists of a few patrols (Does not matter how often you go), a little paperwork, and securing buildings. As long as you show up on time, and wear your uniform you will be fine. In addition, there is a lot of overtime opportunities.

    Cons

    Days can be very boring, if one desires to be constantly stimulated. There is always a bunch of drama between the coworkers, and there is no trust between anyone for the most part. Many officers will “throw their coworker under the bus,” so they can look good. The pay is good for what you have to do, however, nowhere enough to live a normal life. One starts at $11.00 per hour with a two percent increase every year, which every officer receives the same raise. No one gets additional pay for good work or doing the most work. The trick of this job is to not mess up, if you want to do well in the eyes of your superiors. It is very challenging to become promoted and it’s only a 3 dollars raise. The other locations are far in distant terms, as a result if you live near one location and one was to take a promotion. They would be making less money while commuting as coordinator if they would have just stay as an officer at the original location.

    Pros

    FOOD. You get to taste the best of barbecue..and that too AT WORK. The events, the parties and promotions and the employees.

    Cons

    It's a bit laid-back, if you're expecting too much action at work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its been just 8 months into this job now and instantly knew its a great place to be and grow. We're still in the process of setting up the actual Weber-Stephen environment in India. It would really help if you guys could interact more often with us directly and make us feel at home.
