Pros

Schaefer provides excellent insurance and retirement benefits. There is a lot of opportunity for people who have the ability to make their own way and can work well without structure.

Cons

Divisions in the company could benefit from better communications between the division leaders and then sharing a forecasted vision with employees. This would help employees make better decisions in their daily work.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    No parking deck fees. Location is good. Some co-workers are great, other are very negative and rude. management takes advantage of not being on the clock.

    Cons

    Little to no communication between divisions - everything is a "secret". female employees are not heard for any reason. Some managers take advantage of "free" freight and storage of personal items.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate!!!! treat employees as you would like to be treated. Think about your family members working here, would you treat them like that?

    Pros

    Climate controlled atmosphere. You are pretty much left alone to do your work without someone looking over your shoulder. You Will be exposed to many platforms to accelerate your automation knowledge. Very nice paid holidays, vacation, sick days and personal days.

    Cons

    As other reviewers posted, you really cannot expect much, if any, respect unless you are of European nationality. The only other way to expect recognition or promotions is putting in long hours with no extra compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Police the lopsided favoritism toward the europeans and give equal respect and attention across the board. As asked of the employee "be able to work in a diverse multi-cultural environment"
