    Pros

    Uhh, if you have a family, not much. They are putting in a gym and arcade but their ERP system is almost 20 years old so have fun trying to complete your work with that type of system.

    Cons

    If you have to take off work to take care of sick or small children you will definitely be penalized for it. Maybe not directly or immediately but it will definitely be made clear that you are not "about the company" or dedicated to your job. Also, there is zero, and I mean zero, compassion or understanding for being new or having a sick child. The only thing anyone cares about is that work is done immediately and without error. Make an error and expect to get a phone call complaining about it. Also, don't think you are going to work less than 50 or 60 hours. The antiquated ERP system is so difficult to work with that any report you may need takes hours to run.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new ERP system and make it more friendly for people with small children and family. Having overheard someone making fun of people wanting to volunteer at their childrens' school makes me sick. It would also be nice if senior management was actually aware of their peoples needs and made an appearance in the office more than a few times a month.

    I have been working at Evenflo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Building good safety products to protect children.

    Cons

    Unstable work environment. Constant change of direction. Extreme micromanagement. Poorly staffed in key management and supervisory positions. Company moral at an all-time low. Lack of support from corporate level.

    Advice to Management

    Change of management can be a good thing. In this case it sent the operations in a tailspin. Spent years building up the department and improving operations. All of that is gone.
    Connect with your employees. Management has lost touch.

    Pros

    People were OK to work with. Nice office area.

    Cons

    Management team was not very aware. Sales team just focused on selling and not working with the rest of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Need to quit looking short sighted.

    Pros

    Love the products, which are bit outdated, but hopefully coming back. 40% discount on Evenflo products. Nice new building in Miamisburg.

    Cons

    Lots of recent changes in management. Confused direction for the company, employees dont know whats going on. No control over managers, they seem to do what they want and get away with it. Teamwork isnt a real goal.

    Advice to Management

    Performe performance appraisels early on your managers and make them accountable not only to you but also to their direct reports. Get feedback from their direct reports to find out what is going on.
