Pros

Lakeshore has been the backdrop of some of my most rewarding professional (and personal) experiences. They are a family-owned company and treat their employees as such. The owners and senior management genuinely care about the growth and experiences of their employees (as they should, they have a vested interest!) For dedicated, hard-working, and cream-of-the-crop talent, they are an elite company to work for in terms of compensation, challenges, and the people they employ.

Cons

As with any family-owned company, the personalities of the owners filter downhill. This is mostly a good thing, as they are very passionate and invested business owners, and both want and need their employees to succeed. Occasionally this "passion" borders on hysteria, but that has largely been cleaned up by the next generation. They have been infusing the company with a lot of outside talent in recent years, which may not be good for the some of the long-time, home-grown folks, but great for those with valuable experience to bring to the table.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Smart co-workers; opportunity to learn diverse areas of business; high expectations for quality outcomes; fun incentive program; nice annual profit sharing for employees; salaries are above average; quality products you can be proud of; often promote from within

    Cons

    Upper management tends to be a clique (if you are not a favored one, don't expect to go too far); a lot of micro-managing becomes demoralizing over time; long-term contribution & loyalty means very little here; communication is poor; environment is extremely stressful most of the time

    Advice to Management

    Say what you mean and mean what you say - communicate respect. Be honest and ethical in dealing with your employees.


  2. "very efficient workplace"
