    I have been working at Acor Orthopaedic full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    After working with the company for over 10 years I can finally say that it is moving in a very positive direction. The managers or people who make things happen are pushing the company to places it has never been but it seems to be for the best. This looks to be the first time in a long time where I am again proud to be an employee

    Cons

    Overworked staff. Growing so fast that more people should be hired immediately as training can take some time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing. We have become better off because of it

    None there are no pros to working there.

    Try to think like you would want to be treated and then treat your employees that way.

    Pros

    The "little people" at Acor made the job enjoyable. We had a bond and mutual respect for each other that would be hard to match. The picnics and the Christmas parties were fun.

    Cons

    There were many downsides. In a particular department, it helps if you are a snitch (per a supervisor) to advance. Also, a particular manager, unless the owners were in town, sat and read magazines most of the day, surfed the web, or stared at his girlfriend who worked 5 feet away. Every year I was employed there, a 2% raise was given to everyone in the company. That barely made a difference on the paycheck, since every year health benefits increased. The communication was horrible. We didn't have weekly meetings to talk about new products, so when customers called to ask us about something, we had no idea what they meant. Whenever there was an employee "pow wow," compliments from the supervisor were read from a piece of paper instead of being told to our faces. More and more work was forced upon us from other departments in the company because the supervisor didn't have the nerve to stand up for us "little people" in the office, which made the days so busy we couldn't get all of our work finished. Sexual harrassment by the supervisor. I'm not sure how much I can say legally on this site, but I have audio and video of very inappropriate comments made to the office women. There are many more downsides, but I'd have finished a novel after they were explained!

    Advice to Management

    Please train your new employees instead of making current employees do it! If you don't appreciate the way it was done, then do it yourselves, instead of criticizing the trainers. Lastly, make a rule about fraternizing with supervisors. There's no need for dating drama in the workplace.

    I worked at Acor Orthopaedic full-time

    Pros

    The people were all nice to work with and all worked hard (despite their low pay).

    Cons

    Ownership is more concerned with earning quick cash, as opposed to committing to long-term strategic goals.

    Pros

    Products manufactured in Asia at some crummy factory. So much for Made in the USA. Some shoes smelled like dead rats. Some of my customer accounts called to say they got shoes that smelled like a dead animal.

    Cons

    When the President can't agree on company direction with the CEO, and they are brothers, you have a problem. They try to sell direct to accounts that are customers of a distributor. Rampant acts of unprofessionalism every day (many of them sexual). I need to get out soon - I know.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. You are out of touch. The industry has a bad reputation of you.
