    Pros

    A growing and dynamic company, with strong Executive leadership. The managers and technical staff are very knowledgeable, with many years of experience, and with a strong commitment to the ongoing success of the business. Shop floor employees are also very experienced, and there is very little employee turnover. Business units are diversified and operate in different markets even though they are able to realize some integration.

    Cons

    Some of the business units sell products that are highly commoditized, which leads to stiff completion and pressure on margins, however there is room to develop new innovative products for newer industries that are more profitable.

    Advice to Management

    Airboss is a great Canadian business success story, keep it up!

    Pros

    peers are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    I have worked full time at Airboss for many years. I have seen many management changes.
    The HR dept. can be helpful, however they have no clue how to provide and keep up employee moral. Cancelling approved vacation days booked before and after Xmas at the beginning of December, stating employees will receive a payout instead, does not increase employee moral and frankly, leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.

    Advice to Management

    Need better planning for contracts...cutting the work week down a day on one week, and then begging for employees to work overtime the next week! Hire someone that has a clue!!
