Good benefits and education reimbursement.
Good people and opportunity to work on cross department projects

Limited growth opportunity

Advice to Management

Expand to different sectors and try to acquire business lines that add to the portfolio.

    I worked at Elkay Manufacturing full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are very  good once you get to certain level, there are still some good people left getting things done but the number is dwindling with no opportunity for advancement with big talk no action / failed action management brought in from outside.

    Cons

    Elimination of long-term knowledgeable employees, New errogant corporate henchmen leadership, sacrificing of core values, Less personal, Environment that promotes people that do and say what it takes to get promoted instead of what's best for the company, lot's of employee turn-over, top heavy detached corporate structure.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up Ron, arm chair leadership is disolving the foundation that used to be held as your most valuable asset - your employees

    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.
