No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Benefits are mostly decent, very stable job. They will go out of thier way to accommodate any time off you need most of the time.

Cons

Pay raises are not performance based, they are a small percentage across the entire company (2%-3%) per year. (not even cost of living). 50 hours per week at a min in most positions. Usually more, which in my opinion is too much. Not much room for advancement. The largest single raise you will getis through thier "mastery program" ($1.50 hr)

Advice to Management

They should stop treating people like children in there policies and disciplinary actions. Oh and base they pay on performance, then folks might acctually do what you want them too.

    Pros

    Insurance, very steady work. lots of overtime available (but it is mostly mandatory 50 hour weeks).
    If you are familiar with tools and you can put together your new TV stand you can do this job.

    Cons

    At the Joliet Locations we are "Sub-Contractors" for Caterpillar. which is a fancy way of saying that Caterpillar Does not want to pay Union Workers. Basically a Large Long Term Temp service for Cat.
    Bergstrom Doesnt Own anything in the building except the people.

    Advice to Management

    Communication needs to be More Clear, Direct, and Available More Offten. Also, A happy workforce is a more productive workforce, and money makes me HAPPY!
