    Pros

    Good people
    Casual work environment
    Decent PTO
    Low expectations / stress (if that's your thing)
    Flexible

    Cons

    Very ill informed executives and poor decision makers run this company. They seem to be more concerned with creating executive level job titles for friends & family than turning the business around. Communication is even worse.
    Beaulieu residential is at least 20 years behind the industry with no intent of changing. There has not been any investment in infrastructure, equipment or processes in at least 15 years.
    Extreme lack of resources in all aspects of the company.
    Beaulieu, for the most part has become the "last resort" company for people that have been run out of all the "other" manufacturing companies in the industry and Dalton in general.
    Lowest payer in the Industry.
    Advancement opportunity is minimal. Pay increases are nonexistent.

    Advice to Management

    Give your plant level employees adequate notice before you shut their plants down.
