A lot of people fear losing their job and therefore do not actively speak up or embrace change.

    Pros

    The people. Everyone is very friendly and interested in helping.
    The offices. The downtown office is very nice. It is cubeville but it has been well thought out. All conference rooms have computers and projectors. Also there are cubby holes that you can go work in when you need quiet time.
    Flexible schedules. Depending on the department they are very flexible about work schedules.

    Cons

    Management. They are only worried about their own pockets. There is not that much information sharing from the top to the bottom. Also it is very much a male dominated company.
    Hiring practices: The job desriptions are way off. They are gathered from the internet instead of reflecting the actual job.
    Bonuses. They forget to tell you when hired that bonuses are reflective of your review and at GOJO a good job is a 5 out of 10. That means you get half of your promised bonus.
    GOJO is very much a sales led company.

    Advice to Management

    Look and listen. Care about the pesonal growth of all the career paths. Hire more women in higher positons.

    I have been working at GOJO full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The best company to work for in NE Ohio! The GOJO Purpose of Saving Lives and Making Life Better through Well-Being Solutions is the driving force and North Star of this company. It is a family-owned company that truly feels like a family. The legacy of the founder lives on through the culture. GOJO treats its people well at all levels of the organization, and provides opportunities for growth and development.

    Cons

    The cons are irrelevant as the strengths of the company are so strong!
