    I worked at Bobrick Washroom Equipment (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced, dynamic, and growing company. People are great!

    Cons

    The hiring process is arduous, one of the most difficult I have ever experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Not much other than to streamline the hiring process because it is extremely stressful otherwise.

    Pros

    Bobrick offers opportunity for growth and works with employees who want to grow within the organization. Day shift only.

    Cons

    Don't really have anything to say in this category.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes management seems to be disconnected from what is actually taking place within the day-to-day activity of the manufacturing departments.

    Medium sized company and therefore many of the same employees end up on several projects at once.

    Pros

    Bobrick promotes a culture that recognizes and embraces shared values, attitudes, standards, and beliefs that characterize the goals of the organization. They treat their customers, employees, and everyone affiliated with the organization as a member of the Bobrick family. This is a learning organization which develops, grows and takes pride in not only its products but its people.

    Cons

    Not many!! Growing pains, technology pains, but always to better the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Those who work hard, perform and learn have opportunities as they become available company wide.

    Pros

    Well established company, with great products and great name recognition. Established policies-good benefits, stable, good training, great distribution network to work withl

    Cons

    Very bad company culture. They review you twice each year and it is a VERY negative experience. They are always looking for ways to find fault with you and throw it back in your face on the review. They discourage salaried employees from socializing with hourly employees. When they want to lay you off, they take away any programs that you establish.

    Advice to Management

    Move into the 21st Century and eliminate the performance reviews. Also, do automatic deposit on Christmas bonus checks instead of paper checks. They just do paper checks on Christmas bonuses to force people to sit through the Christmas part

    Pros

    Bobrick is truly a gem in the greater Los Angeles Area. The company walks the walk in terms of their core values of doing what is right and investing in their people.
    I am a part of the Management Development Program, where you are given the opportunity to rotate through various departments in the company over time to gain a holistic overview of the company and how your eventual position fits into that vision.
    Everyone really values their colleagues here. It is a very positive environment to spend your days in. The company values work/life balance as well.
    The headquarters here in Los Angeles (North Hollywood, to be specific) are AMAZING. A really new design for such an established company, with an open work space and lots of perks.
    The compensation and benefits are great too. All around, I would recommend working here to anyone I know.

    Cons

    One of the only cons I can see is that the location is not ideal - it's in the north part of the east San Fernando Valley and isn't in the hub of where the action is. It's about a 10 minute drive to most places for lunch.
    There is also a lack of transparency in terms of when you are promoted, which varies from manager to manager and by department. There could be more clarity on the timelines.
    Lastly, there is not much diversity in the executive team. Hopefully that will be changing as the next generation of Management Development candidates move into those more senior roles.

    Advice to Management

    Be clearer in the timeline of when someone is rotating into new positions.

    Pros

    Bobrick is very family oriented, operates day shifts only.

    Cons

    Management would rather hire "inexperienced educated " individuals then promote within if they don't have a degree.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder on succession planning.
