    I have been working at Grote Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company culture and the employees of Grote are what make the company such a pleasure to work for. Grote is a 100 year old, family-owned company that really values the family aspect of the professional culture. The Grote family is actively communicating and networking with the Grote employees and individuals within the community. The culture is considered to be a "work hard, play hard" type culture. Grote is a growing business with many goals that are achievable. But that means that the Grote employees must work hard to achieve those goals. When a goal is achieved, upper management makes sure to provide recognition when deserved and celebrate when necessary.

    Cons

    Madison, IN is a small, quaint town with few stores and about an hour from a "big city." However, Madison has many festivals during the summer and fall that attract to many people of all ages. When I first moved to Madison, I missed living close to a Target store, but I soon become accustomed to the smaller town (and my bank account appreciates that). There are many bigger cities that are 50 minutes to 1 hour and 20 minutes away from Madison, such as: Louisville, Clarksville, Florence, Cincinnati, Columbus, and others.

    Advice to Management

    Keep rewarding the hard working employees at Grote. They are what make the company great.

    I worked at Grote Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Technology-driven products and applications. High brand recognition in the Class 8 trucking and Heavy-Duty channels for marker and signal lighting. Very low recognition of head lamp systems.

    Cons

    No clear focus on resources and global focus. Siloed management with no cooperative approach between divisions and sales teams. Grote family micro-manages business processes.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify outside of Madison Indiana. Allow your managers to manage. Agree on and commit to a clear vision for the entire company and communicate it clearly to all employees.
