    Pros

    Hard working hourly workforce, although not treated well by director level management due to uneducated, impulse decisions. I am surprised they have not unionized.

    Cons

    If you are the type of person who is driven, accountable, and passionate save your sanity and career...look elsewhere. Attrition for salaried employees is very high and rising due to management/ senior leadership's blind eye to talented people. Promotion from within is nearly impossible and not based on performance, and salary increases are not awarded for those who are promoted. The company will, however, laterally move you for years and years and call it talent development so they can get their "check" in the box. Positions open up only when employees finally realize they have wasted away years of their life going nowhere and leave, only then to be back filled by a lateral equivelant position that absorbs their responsibilities, leaving zero opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop the high school drama and act like professional adults.


  6. "Supply Chain Intern"

    Pros

    Good pay for an intern position. Everyone working at the plant is extremely friendly and willing to help if you have any questions.

    Cons

    The location in Augusta is not the best city to live in if you're a young adult. The plants are not air conditioned so it can get very hot in the summer.

    I worked at E-Z-GO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Part of Textron which is a big company, so benefits are decent.

    Cons

    EZGO itself is a small company, so a lot of gossip, backstabbing, horrible work environment. Finger pointing at it's best, no team work at all. The person who posted the review on March 29 said it best. A bunch of immature high schoolers. Even the managers are pitching against each other secretly. You can tell. Terrible environment! Most people don't last even a year working there.

    Advice to Management

    Watch your people and watch the managers who micromanage. nobody likes them. The old way of doing business is so over, please keep up with the new generation. And watch yourself to make sure you're not one of them.

    Pros

    The only pro is Benefits – Textron being the size they are can offer great benefits

    Cons

    If you would like to return to High School as an adult this is the place to work, by work I mean over 60+ hours a week and no time for family. Management talks down to employees, sets employees up to fail and offers no guidance. Hostile work environment is encouraged. Minimalist are the only survivors. As far as the pay you can make more money working off of Tips at a restaurant. Don’t be fooled by the Textron name, EZGO is in a world by itself and enjoys running off good strong employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look hard look at how employees are being treated and make adjustments starting with management. Try showing support to the ones doing all the work.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits were ok.

    Cons

    The management team does not know what they are doing, and wasting money. There is no support from many of the departments, and the product they make is only getting worse and worse.

    Pros

    Great people, good work culture. You spend a lot of time at work but the people around you are very good to work with.

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance, you are expected to work early and late/take work home with you. Don't pay well enough for the talent they want.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more, hire more people

    I worked at E-Z-GO full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, very talented and hard working.

    Cons

    Although this business unit calls itself "commercial, aka: industrial" it is still run by golf and leisure centered leadership. Territory Sales Managers receive zero on the job training unless they are specifically "liked" are are provided special training with an outside trainer. The average new rep is expected to sink or swim and is usually gone within 4 months.

    Advice to Management

    Please provide training to all new employees in a fair and equal manner. As an executive, a manager who continuously has a high failure rate of new hires should be a major red flag. This is a massive resource loss to the company and a morale killer to the rest of the staff. The business cultures of golf & leisure sales vs.industrial sales to manufacturing plants are as different as night and day. Nothing wrong with either. The leadership seems to know this but it is difficult to overcome the golf and leisure culture. The two BU's should be separated, perhaps moved out of Augusta (golf capital of N. America) or sell off the industrial division to an industrial mindset company. Leave the golf and leisure team in place there in Augusta and enjoy building on an already well established culture rather than diluting an otherwise prosperous and well defined market plan.
