    I have been working at Forney Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People are absolutely WONDERFUL! Finally getting the right people in the right places for the good of the company. Company has a ton of potential, some products are exceptional and always introducing better products. If you can prove you've got a brain and can benefit the company, you can move up. Extremely flexible with time off, sick etc.

    Cons

    Pay -Difference between HQ staff & warehouse staff is unacceptable. Interns with irrelevant degrees make more than other employees going on their second or third year. -Raises are a joke here-you've got supervisors who have served your company for years making the same you can start at a fast food joint for. Setting Money ON FIRE -Tens of thousands of dollars of unused product sitting around waiting for packaging...

    Advice to Management

    Conduct audits of product lines. If we aren't selling an item get rid of it. No more 'going to put it on special online' find someone local and get rid of it. Warehouse space is worth money. Conduct actual market research- with numbers. Not BS numbers provided by an executive stuck 20 years ago. -Quit launching new products when we can't support the products we already have. -GET DATA.

    Pros

    Forney's leadership is moving in the right direction. Employees that are not a good fit and/or are not strong employees are being moved out. People are being held accountable for their work. Love that we are engaged in the Northern Colorado community. I feel appreciated every day.

    Cons

    It is difficult that we are on three different campuses but like that we hear what is going on Company wide.

    Advice to Management

    Keep holding people accountable. We are moving in the right direction.

    I worked at Forney Industries full-time

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to learn and advance career. They're very willing to promote within company and entertain lateral changes to other departments.

    Cons

    More focused on "culture" and participation in the attitude of the company than hard skills. Often saw hard-working and loyal employees being let go or passed over for employees that management liked better, personality-wise.
