Pros

Top brand in the industry
above average pay
diverse staff
good benefits
marketing group is top notch

Cons

middle management does not have proper experience in the industry
employee turnover is high in certain departments which is a direct result of employee mis-management
high pressure but no direction
too much focus on reports and not enough on the customer

Advice to Management

Get back to what made Caesarstone successful. Teamwork and support of the fellow associate. Becoming incorporated is great but don't fall into corporate politics and lose sight of what's really happening in your branches.
Los Angeles is a perfect example of what can go wrong when you hire incompetent management and lose sight of what really made it a success. A once number one branch, ruined by poor managers.

    Negative Outlook

    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.
