    Pros

    Creative, autonomous, fast-paced work environment.

    Cons

    Sexist management. They fired the receptionist and made all of the women take turns on reception duty, because the owner "didn't like how it sounded when a man answered the phone."

    I worked at Craftsmen Industries full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, very much a family atmosphere, owner is wonderful.

    Cons

    New Management is a nightmare. When upper management is told of issues nothing is corrected just made worse for whoever made the issue noticed. The company has wonderful people but they are going to loose them if nothing is changed. HR is very isn’t very knowledgeable and makes issues worse.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Correct management problems. RESPECT YOUR ASSOCIATES!!!!

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Craftsmen Industries full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Great co-worker's, access to all tools and knowledge of many different tradesmen and women. Fun get togethers, bbq's and bowling.

    Cons

    New management is tough to work for, nice one day and completely ignorant the next. Nothing but meetings after meetings, hard to stay on track. Soon as you get going you have to stop to go to a meeting. Also so many people are upset for the same reasons, company to soon to lose alot of valuable people because of one....

    Advice to Management

    Fix the problem before you lose alot of great people.

    This company is a nightmare. Upper managment is clueless and its not a healthy work environment. Inner fighting and back stabbing. I'd look elsewhere.

    Stop bullying employees. This used to be a great company ...not any longer.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Room for advancement and a team atmosphere. There have been lots of positive changes including investment in equipment, technology and training.Growing, growing, growing.

    Cons

    With growth, come growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    The company was bought back from a private equity group by the family that founded Craftsmen. Hired a young, experienced CEO with vision to guide the company forward. It's a brighter future at Craftsmen than anytime in its past.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Craftsmen Industries full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Work with some of the best experiential agencies. Projects are high profile and very cool. Great experience.

    Cons

    Not a team atmosphere. Work is not evenly split .. some work harder than others. Employees morale is at a all time low. Inner fighting, management is slow to intervene.

    Advice to Management

    Foster a team environment. Remove the dead weight that is holding us from moving forward. Hire qualified employees who have been trained or provide them with proper training. Not on the job.. baptism by fire training. Motivate your sales force and production workers with realistic plans. Take action quicker and hold people accountable.
