    I worked at Dimplex Thermal Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    General employees at the company are awesome

    Cons

    Leadership is terrible that honestly has no clue what is happening and how to run the manufacturing departments and lines, makes terrible decision that get overlooked due to friendship with Upper leadership. Micro manages worse than anyone I have ever worked for. I would recommend anyone interested looking for employment look else where. VP constantly turns down purchases for tools and equipment that will help the company grow and ease the manufacturing process. Pay raises are almost non existent and the yearly review process is a joke. There is a ton of finger pointing by VP when there is an issue and almost no resolution to them. Dimplex as a whole needs a lot of changes in upper management to become a good employer.

    Advice to Management

    value your employees and their opinion.

    I worked at Dimplex Thermal Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, low cost benefits

    Cons

    Where do I start? Low wages, minimal raises, unreasonable structured bonus. "Upper Management" has no clue as to what is going on within production. Safety complaints are flat out ignored, until OSHA shows up. Steer clear of the aisle ways, forklift drivers consistently drive with heavy loads overhead. There is no communication between departments. When problems occur, there is always fingerpointing. Nobody wants to take responsibility or even work together to fix the problems.

    Advice to Management

    Engage with your employees, get to know them, ask how you can help. Do SOMETHING other than hide in your office all day.

    High management is not understanding. Steict attendance policy. Lots of mandatory overtime

    Listen to employees

    Pros

    A lot of good people work here.

    Cons

    Very unstructured company that lacks concern for the customer or their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management really needs to find someone who can bring structure and stability to the company, instead of firing and hiring a new president every three years.

    Advice to Management

    Need to work at employee retention, keep benefit packages secure, evaluate Pascale to attract new people and for retention

    Pros

    Benefits are decent, lower level employees look out for each other, company attempts to keep employees happy with company picnics and parties.

    Cons

    Extremely high employee turnover rate, inept leadership team that doesn't know how the company systems or processes works, employees feel left to fend for themselves.

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good for Kalamazoo, there are OK benefits, we have a new, albeit expensive, vending machine system, and there are ample family social events.

    Cons

    Very high turnover rate. There was, with the previous president, no direction in the company; or, at best, it changed every few months. No communication between, and even with-in, departments. Different departments do whatever they want in regards to technology and expect IT to support them.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a direction and stick with it. Changing directions every other month does nothing for the employees but confuse them and make them feel crazy.

    Good steady work able to pay bills get aqhead when overtime available.

    Cons

    Lack of openess between Mngt and employees always dictating to employees not willing to listen to senior employees, On cost cutting measures alway pushing more production not willing to come together and stratagize.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to have a open mind there is no success with out communication.
