Negative Outlook

I worked at Sub-Zero & Wolf Appliance full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good benefits, education reimbursement is Ok, but not great.

Cons

Low wages, no opportunities to grow. Lots of travel and way too many hours expected out of you. Very frustrating IT policies and procedures. Processes needs LOTS of work.

Advice to Management

Should put some effort into employee concerns, so many people have left during my time there and it should be very obvious at this point what can be done.

    Pros

    Benefits are very good. Financially very stable company due to very successful marketing and a great deal of money and effort on developing desirable products. If you can make it across the line into management (department head minimum), you probably have a job for life.

    Cons

    Very top-heavy with many many layers of management. Some managers adding questionable value and mostly tying up others in meetings so they can be "updated". Some others would not be capable of performing the daily duties of their direct reports (and never did or could). Much too much promotion on the "Dilbert Principle". I have worked at several companies since and the few, most incompetent managers and VP's I encountered at SZ are still unrivaled. Not to be too negative, I consider it mostly a case of a few bad apples spoiling the bunch.

    Advice to Management

    Downsize based on competency

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Alot of personal freedom to prioritize and choose projects. Very open to new technologies and methods with the bottom line of producing results. People in positions with quality experience and knowledge of products.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be disorganized and unfocused. Project decisions are often dictated by upper management, sometimes going against advice given by the people running the projects.

    Advice to Management

    Let your people do their jobs and take their advise, not every idea is a good idea...make sure you focus on the projects which will make your company the most successful.
