    New Owners are Cutting Good Productive People Without a Thought!!!!

    I worked at WorkflowOne

    Pros

    Before the Ownership Change, I found the department I worked in very respectful of Work-Life Balance. And also very flexible when it came to working on-site, working virtual, etc. Those are both big Plus's in my book. I also took advantage of the on-site gym. Its truly very very small but at least it gave me the opportunity to take a 45 min treadmill break every day! And finally, the Riverscape location is beautiful!!

    Cons

    Lack of Creative Leadership!
    Lack of infrastructure!
    Lack of Communication!
    Lack of Process and Planning!
    Lack of Clear Direction!
    And the company overall has a lack of truly respecting and valuing their employees!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees the way you want to be treated. And watch your back because the New Owners are going to cut many more people before they are done!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Throw some of the "cash" down to the reps in the foxholes.

    Great Location Downtown (across from Riverscape!)

    Generally Nice People to work with

    Hire Leaders who have Education and Experience in the roles you place them AND who know how to Lead, Plan, Organize, Prioritize, and Appreciate good employees!

    Pros

    Overall this is a good company to work for.

    Cons

    Needs to evaulate employees based on their job performance and when an employee surpasses what is expected then they need to compensate.

    Needs to give employees their job structure and salary grades with salary ranges.

    Needs more advancement opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more with employees. Their is information that is never found out unless you go searching for it.

    Former Employee - Sales  in  Dayton, OH
    Former Employee - Sales in Dayton, OH

    I worked at WorkflowOne

    Pros

    Flexible work hours. ability to grow but no training for any new products or service. Plus pricing is out of wack. not competitive at all.. Ok pay plan. however, in the last 3 years, they have changed the comp. plane 3 times. Room for growth but management is not looking for the future. This company is living in the past. Open territory to call on whoever you want to call on..

    Cons

    Always changing comp. plans, no training, lose of focus from upper management, local management has no clue. Better make you number in a dying indusrty of you will be let go. Lack of support to be able to go sell. Local managemnt needs to be a manager of his or her sales people instead of kissing the upper managements butts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    move into the future, your tranition business is dead

    Pros

    Employees are treated to a family type atmosphere. There are several knowledgeable people within the company willing to help. If things smooth out the company has the potential to see huge gains.

    Cons

    Communication between even top management and direct managers is slow or completely lacking, leading to lack of communication to front line employees. Company path is on unstable ground as shown by it being changed 4 times in the last 3 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please look at this and other reviews that offered advice as most have suggested working on communication.

    I worked at WorkflowOne

    Pros

    At the local level we had a good operation and solid management. Was treated well and had a good team

    Cons

    The leadership team and upper management was the typical old boys club. Over 5 years we had close to 5 CEO's and very weak finances. Could not keep the company moving in the same direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell off assests and regroup

    Fast Paced - Ability to Make a Difference

    Current Employee - IT Professional  in  Dayton, OH

    Pros

    WorkflowOne is a small enough company allowing any one person to make a difference. The company is fast paced and ever changing allowing a young professional many opportunities for growth and first hand experience.

    Cons

    It is very hard to hit a ceiling in this company. There is strong retention in management and therefore hard to break through. This company is great for young professionals, but has a limited shelf life for career growth potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more with employees, much of the time information is spread through the grape vine much sooner than a formal communication.

    I worked at WorkflowOne

    Pros

    There are some excellent manufacturing plants. Most of the people in the manufacturing palnts are a pleasure to work with. The plants usually do top quality work.

    Cons

    The pricing at workflow plants was way too high to be competitive and the freight prices were way too high also. All pricing problems are charged to sales. It is up to sales to fix the problem even if the problem has nothing to do with sales. They have reduced commissions 8 times in the last 10 years and eliminated a 20% bonus for thoes who hit plan on Dec 30, 2007. The eliminated the pension, 401k match, and reduced the health benefits while increasing the health benefit cost to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is top heavy with managers and there is little sales support.
