Pros

Majority of people are friendly. Comardary among people for how unreasonable decisions made by management.

Cons

Working here is like being on a reality tv show. People make alliances to keep their job. Managment is too busy in meetings scheming on how they'll take advantage of employees rather than noticing
People who produce and care about company's well being. This job wasted prime Years of my career. I hope I'll be able to recover.

Advice to Management

Start treating people w/ respect. Remove honor God in all we do from
Moto. There's nothing honorable about how you treat people.

    Pros

    -Great work/life balance
    -Great associates
    -Very unstressful/unchallenging (con or pro...you decide)
    Oatey is a good place to work if you have a family and can afford to raise them on what Oatey pays you. The workplace is without urgency or concern, and the work/life balance is satisfied as a result.

    Cons

    -Ridiculous compensation, on the verge of insulting
    -Incredibly shrinking benefits year after year
    -Indefinite wage freeze
    Never expect to earn your way up or earn more income at Oatey. The company is intimately coupled with the housing market...as the market withers, so do the opportunties at Oatey. The hiring philosphy is to bring in talent from the outside only, most often at wages that far exceed internal talent for the exact same positions. This is not a company to come to if you are a motivated, energetic, and high-performing worker with management potential.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the political nonsense. This company may be family-owned, but it shouldn't ACT family-run. Get more mid-level managers, because there is a huge age gap between senior managment and the potential management pool. Unless, of course, the plan is to simply buy the management talent from the market at highly inflated prices...

    I worked at Oatey as an intern

    Pros

    The people on the IT help staff were nice and helpful.
    My work station was set up, and access provided by the time I started, even though the company was in a very hectic situation.
    Paid internship.

    Cons

    Some of the people in IT seemed like they didn't know anything.
    Oatey couldn't figure out how to utilize my skills in the best way.
    I spent a long while watching an auto-hotkey script I programmed do the job I was assigned.

    Advice to Management

    Please, for the love of god, do not give your intern an administrator account with full access.
    That's asking for a whole lot of headache.
