    I have been working at Caesarstone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to learn new things and expand and hone your skills. Lots of room to make a positive impact. Working for and with international colleagues. If you're looking for a place to grow the potential is here

    Cons

    New plant with some growing pains. Some young, inexperienced staff with limited guidance. If you're not detail oriented or can't learn and adapt to changes , you'll struggle here

    Advice to Management

    Some management needs to see their job as a piece of the bigger business and understand the company and plant functions more holistically

    Pros

    Room for growth, start up facility and your ideas to improve are welcomed.
    Great benefits, good pay. Very nice facility. Passion for growth as a company. Strong company financially.

    Cons

    Being a start up the structure is still being developed. Some processes or policies are changing. This is really the biggest con, but being a start up it is expected.

    I worked at Caesarstone full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Other than the extremely hard working and underappreciated/disrespected ops and HQ team, there are no pros which is why i had to leave. After years of promising it will get better, while strangling my ability to make it better, you find yourself just spinning wheels and constantly changing direction due to poor leadership and decision making.

    Cons

    An abusive sales team nurtured by management. Basically, if you can sell, you can get away with degrading people and constant disrespect. I have even seen these horrible people promoted and even moved to different departments rather than addressing the issue. They set unobtainable bonus criteria for both sales and ops, which forces sales to fall into the abusive attitudes their leaders have created and pits sales and ops against each other, all while they say they need to build that relationship. Basically, they preach positive while practicing negativity which promotes a harsh work environment and kills morale. The pressure on the warehouse team is ridiculous since they are all running lean crews with inadequate equipment for what they are doing. For instance, they are moving bundles with homemade fork extensions and slings instead of marble handler attachments. This increases the potential for accident extremely while making an, otherwise simple process, into an hours long scenario that was never budgeted or provided the appropriate manpower for. Its just scary to think about and i couldn't stand around and be a part of it anymore. There are many more, but these were the most important Cons to me and my time there.

    Advice to Management

    Stop preaching and start doing. Institute a no tolerance policy for abusive work environments. Give the teams what they need to succeed and succeed SAFELY. Maybe the CEO should actually come down from his cloud and take a look at whats really happening in the warehouses and the field. Since our previous CEO left, the new one hasn't engaged with Ops AT ALL. Pay people what they are worth, because there is a ton of talent being underutilized and demoralized daily. Pay for what you get. The markets have far surpassed what you are paying a lot of the people. You will continue to get poor performance and a revolving door because you are not getting who you need, but on the other end, when you do get the right people, your unobtainable goals/bonuses and abusive environments you allowed pushes them out.

    I worked at Caesarstone full-time

    Pros

    Company car and all expenses covered allowing you to hit the road without worry.

    Cons

    They micromanage their micromanagement. There is attention to detail and then there is Caesarstone. You have no flexibility. They want you on the road all day every day and doing mountains of sales logix and reports while you are at home.

    Advice to Management

    Everybody is different, either hire people already in your mold or find a way to work with people's strengths

    Pros

    Good people to work with

    Cons

    Horrible leads, supervisors, and managers starting at the top.
    Very unsafe work environment.
    Can't meet quotas so compensation package is a lie - promised bonuses are non existent.

    One star awarded for senior management because you can't award negative stars.

    Advice to Management

    Upper-upper level management: start over from scratch. Nearly the entire management team is incompetent. How don't you see that?

    I have been working at Caesarstone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    At this time I can not recall a reason to tell anyone to come work here.

    Cons

    No real support from HQ, no direction in the business model it is like the wild wild west out here. The HR department is a joke as well.

    Advice to Management

    You need to get your act together, the people in the field can not be cleaning up your mess all the time.

    Pros

    They provide a company car which does help save wear and tear on your own car but they do expect you to have your own car. Their brand is very strong and this beneficial in sales.

    Cons

    The company's employee business model is not sustainable, they claim their pay rate is on point with industry standards but it is far from it. Their management style is archaic and they do not value their very hard working team, they manage as if they are still in Israel. Unrealistic work loads. There are now to many low cost providers and it is very hard to sell at a 40% higher margin.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so arrogant to believe that you have a unique product, start to invest in all of your team.

    Pros

    I enjoyed working there because it was a fun, positive work environment with lots of opportunities to build your skillset and utilize your HR knowledge and capabilities.

    Cons

    Stretch goals and intense timeframes and deadlines for recruitment, not a lot of opportunity to grow position wise just skill wise. Not a lot of work/life balance.
