    I worked at American Textile full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Set hours, quiet work environment and great benefits.

    Cons

    Poor Operations management and overall management direction. Low pay. Minimal carer advancement opportunities. Lacking leadership and communication skills. Must drink the corporate cool-aide to fit in or be prepared to be ostracized.

    Advice to Management

    Stop valuing the employee as just another number to vent your problems onto because you can't handle your work/personal situation(s). Just common respect.. it's very simple.

    I worked at American Textile full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent facilities and overall friendly staff. Standard vacation and benefits package. Generally a nice place to work. Great place to START a career.

    Cons

    Low pay and micromanaging. Too bad because I actually really liked working here. Seems like a select few were favored and the rest of us all moved on to higher paying gigs. Get your experience here and move on.

    Advice to Management

    Promote the right people. Keep your talent and don't let them go because you don't want to pay competitive wages.

    My friend from Mckeesport (only 2 miles away with tons of experience) couldnt get hired because he lived in Mckeesport. The company feels Mckeesport is full of druggies and thieves

    Large turnover in Accounting Dept.

    Pros

    One of the few manufacturing companies left in Pittsburgh. Company has a rich history and has been around for 86 years.

    Archaic policies reminiscent of the 1950's. Flexible work schedules and telecommuting are not permitted.

    Be open to change. If you want employees to be happy and loyal, you have to offer a more flexible work environment.
