    I worked at Allsteel full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Profit sharing and some great friendships made.

    Cons

    Pay is low, comp plan is good in theory but goals are outlandish. Management and leadership is a joke, they all are somehow related to Muscatine “elite”. They promote people who have zero business being promoted or know how to manage. They also are not fans of women in leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people and be as progressive culturally as you portray your product to be.

    Pros

    Ability to move up.

    Cons

    High turnover rate for upper management turn into a shift in focus. Allsteel wants engineers as supervisors and not actual managers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more engineers so the managers can focus on their team.

    I worked at Allsteel full-time

    Pros

    Great work life balance for employees. Voted one of Iowa's best workplaces.

    Cons

    Lack of access to leadership, despite reassuring all employees that the "door is always open." Lack of transparency around strategy. Poor communication.

    Pros

    Allsteel (HQ) provides great opportunities to develop, grow and perform meaningful work. Promotional opportunities and very competitive total compensation package - if you are willing to work hard and contribute in a fast paced environment. Supportive environment with a lot of perks

    Cons

    Muscatine location is an issue for some but roughly 50% of professionals commute from either QC or Iowa City area, some members are entitled (especially those that don't have much work history), employee churn (members moving to new roles) and org changes creates challenges, ability to focus and do heads down work in an open environment is a challenge, competing priorities and constant change

    Advice to Management

    Drive focus on fewer priorities, don't overreact to demands or unrealistic feedback, be even more transparent on business challenges, don't be afraid to move quickly on under performing members/employees - give them the good AND bad feedback in real time

    I have been working at Allsteel full-time

    Pros

    The member culture is great--you easily get support for members that aren't in the same department as yourself.

    Cons

    Bad Management in a majority of departments. If there is a bad manager, their direct reports suffer and end up getting let go. Very hypocritical environment. The point of this company is to support and allow growth and movement (states it in the vision statements and handbook) but yet they block opportunities and ultimately try their hardest to bring you down. The HR department managers have zero clue what they are...

    Advice to Management

    How about actually training managers? There is no formal manager training...this results in high turnover and unhappiness on a team. We underappreciate members who are actually outstanding but they can not show it because they're constantly getting treated negatively and not having any room for growth. You will learn your lesson, hopefully.
