    I worked at Briggs & Stratton full-time

    Pros

    Overall they offer a great benefits package to employees, especially the retirement and vacation/holiday time off.

    Cons

    The most toxic environment I’ve ever worked in. I was a salaried employee at a plant. If anything at the plant level went wrong, management was trying to get a name to blame instead of fixing the process. This creates a toxic environment where once teamwork was fostered. It is crazy how fast this type of management style can turn a plant into chaos.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and stop reminding them how replaceable they are.
