I worked at Elkay Manufacturing full-time

Pros

-Great health care benefits
-Workload is not brutal
-Christmas Bonus

Cons

-They don't live up to their Elkay Values
-Management has little or no concern for the professional growth of the employees

Advice to Management

-Act interested in the professional growth of your employees. Management does not seem to care about this.
-Live up to your Elkay Values. The "Values" seem to have no teeth--people are not held accountable to live up to them.

    Pros

    Excellent products and decent health benefits. Good location and a nice facility. Fairly clean and safe work environment for employees.

    Cons

    Cost cutting and layoffs are a given as with most companies right now, however, the trend the last few years at Elkay has been to hire management and promote from outrside. Most of their job histories tell that they change companies every couple of years and have no vested interest in seeing Elkay thrive as they appear to be looking for the next job opportunity at the next company. Management does not give credit where credit is due and unfortunately they have taken credit for projects that regular employees have created and finished. Management preaches teamwork yet there is little to no communication from them and alot of deriding when they do communicate.

    Advice to Management

    You have supervisors that say openly that they don't have a clue about what they are doing and go to regular employees for advice on how to manage. Find out who they are and place people in those roles that take pride in what they do.
