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

    Pros

    Wonderful training, fantastic people, and exceptional benefits.

    There are incredible opportunities here for advancement, interdepartmental work and, as always, continuous improvement in lean manufacturing.

    It is a healthy, transparent business that has grown by leaps and bounds over the last few years.

    It is a very "down to earth" place, with plenty of grounded, friendly employees.

    Cons

    There have been some facility issues. Also some complications can arise from the rapid growth and communication across multiple brands and plants.

    Growth can be exciting, but I have gotten the sense that it is not being managed as well as it could be. Emphasis has been on new product launch, rather than being able to sustain support of products in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Continues to do an excellent job of fostering a welcoming, nurturing, and friendly learning and business environment.

    Continue listening to employee contributions and feedback. There should probably be a review of the processes for launching new products, as I think they could be streamlined and planned better.

    I have been working at Douglas Dynamics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Douglas is a fantastic company to work for. Employees are given many opportunities to contribute to many aspects of the business which provides a level of ownership for everyone. Ideas for continuous improvement are encouraged even when they fall outside of current area of responsibility.

    Cons

    There still seems to be a sense of "us versus them" feeling with manufacturing locations. The culture of one family is not necessarily always led from top down and sometimes even seems to be misguided by some in management. Best practices should be shared and encouraged not fought.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more unification of ideas between locations. Challenge business units to come together on common grounds and ensure that the corporate vision is shared at all levels of the organization.
