    Pros

    Great pay & close to home
    Good benefits at low cost to the employee
    Good product, very competetive in its market
    Advancement opportunities
    Job security
    Educational benefits for employees and their families

    Cons

    Communication could be improved. Also it would be nice to see capable employees who have experience within the company get promoted from within regardless of whether or not they have a college degree. Experience should still count for something.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the office and take the time to visit with the employees on the shop floor. It seems as though Graco management used to be promoted from the shop floor. Since it currently seems to promote more from within its sales and marketing staff, the communication between management and the factory workers has diminished. Getting people to work together begins with getting to know them and realizing they are no different than you.
