I worked at Federal Signal full-time

Pros

Decent pay unless you start now in the union, very friendly co-workers in most areas, understanding immediate supervisors, and the feeling that knowing your good work is keeping people safe.

Cons

Terrible HR, terrible union, terrible labor relations that harm the company as well as the worker, and most of all terrible middle and upper management.

Advice to Management

It's not the 1930s anymore. Wake up and step forward finally instead of importing more from China as your solution to increase profit margins.

    I worked at Federal Signal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A longstanding, stable company that will be around for awhile.

    Cons

    A bit myopic when it comes to leveraging software and technology. Coming from a manufacturing background, they have yet to embrace the 21st century.

    Advice to Management

    There is more than a little cronyism taking place here, at least in the IT department. Time to clean house. Also, IT talent has been fleeing due to mismanagement.
