No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Federal Signal full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

People at the plant level are great and through some of the ranks. Old leadership really cared and knew something about everyone. Over years, senior leadership driven by the dollar vs social responsibility of the people who they effect.

Cons

Company goes thru periods when really good but lots of change and hard to hold onto good talent.

Advice to Management

People are your most important peice of business

    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.
