    I have been working at Bryce Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay for the area if you lack a college degree.
    All the overtime you could want.
    Paid holidays and some vacation time.

    Cons

    Lacks direction from upper management, is completely based on a buddy system and upper management will not listen to floor employees. Cheap from a company spending stand point.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and stop keeping your buddies who don't work around

    I worked at Bryce Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is great for location. Most of the buildings are A/C controlled.

    Cons

    Management needs some work. Too much of the "favorites" game there. If you know the shift leads from high school, then you will be safe. Office jobs are the best. They get all holidays and weekends off, free product sampling and pay is very close to the factory pay.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it professional, treat ALL employees the same. Show your employees you actually know they exist and respect them.

    Pros

    Potential overtime, work schedule, work inside

    Cons

    Communication between departments, no sick days

    Advice to Management

    Better communication in whole company would increase profits, take time to listen to floor employees

    Pros

    Pay is good compared to surrounding businesses, swing shift, good benefits

    Cons

    Some managers played favorites, but not all. Very little interaction with HR or other day shift staff. 12 hour shifts are long, but got 3 day weekends twice a month.

    Advice to Management

    Night shift needs face time from HR. Just ask people how they are doing sometimes.

    Pros

    Good pay and that's it

    Cons

    Most of the managers are from Mississippi very republican and very racist. They took the stimulus money and talked crap about Obama. They pretend to be the best thing going but they are not. I worked the 25 years and finally quit for a better job I hope the redneck jerks go out of business.

    Pros

    It's a great paying factory job for the level of physical work. It is also climate controlled which automatically makes it better than most factories. If you want to work 60+ hours a week they will allow it the majority of the time.

    Cons

    12 hour shifts and once clIckes in you cannot leave the facility. You have zero sick days so call in for any reason and you will lose attendance bonus. It is a swing schedule so you will work every other weekend. For the majority of the time I've worked there they have kept us 1+ people short so there is always overtime. For close to a year everybody worked 48+ hours every week, made a lot of money but didn't see family a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and be more concerned with employee moral. Just because you pay the best in town it doesn't mean you can treat your employees like they don't matter.

    Pros

    Bryce can provide great growth opportunities if you can find your niche. If you learn who is in charge and cater to their needs you may do well provided you can "play the game". The transition to the new generation may help as new ideas and thoughts are brought into the compaqny

    Cons

    Family owned which can be great if you are "in" with the family. Many long-time employees have been promoted due to their loyalty and tenure and not due to their competence.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to hire and have people rise up in the organization who are "different" than yourself. Think long-term and not on the next month P&L.

    I worked at Bryce Corporation as an intern

    Pros

    The laidback atmosphere and open door policy made it easy to ask questions and to get to know the business.

    Cons

    Upper management is old and stuck in their traditional ways. Many of the older employees are burnt out and hold the business back by not allowing new technology or ideas to help improve manufacturing.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more college graduates and stop promoting people just because they have made their careers at Bryce.

    Was a good company to work for until recent years. Family owned and always valued it's employees.

    New generation of management is taking over and morale is going downhill. Many good people have left or been forced out.
