    I have been working at Foley Equipment full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of progressive changes have been made based on the feedback we have received in the past in regards to the interviewing and response process from the applicant standpoint. New initiatives allow us to give candidates feedback from their interviews within 5 business days. Large enough company to be stable but have maintained the family-oriented culture where ideas and changes are valued and embraced but more importantly, acted upon.

    Cons

    We don't often have openings in the larger market areas as much as we do in the more rural areas of our territory.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and building an incredible company culture!

    Pros

    If (big if there) you find your niche most likely you'll be so happy you'll stay with the company for years.

    Good 401K match. Healthcare is good.

    Cons

    Mgmt follow through at department level is severely lacking. So much talk of change/enforcing rules, but then it never happens.

    Sales/Rental department lacks ethics/morals.

    If you're female and you land in the sales/rental departments you will deal with a lot of harassment/unfair standards.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of talk about being real/honest, but in the end facts are often used against people. No true rewards for doing your job really well. Pay raises are weak, no other incentives offered, etc.

    Pros

    Great people to work with everyday. Young and intelligent executive management team. Fair compensation and perks for the right skill set. Very invested in training. Great work-life balance. Great insurance plan. Personal touches from CEO and exec team that you don't see elsewhere. Strong brand to represent and to be proud of where you work.

    Cons

    No cons that I can think of at this time. Like I said, a great company with lots of opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Stay close to all of the current employees like you do and you will have continued success beyond all of your competitors.

    Pros

    Not sure. Not allowed to interact with co workers so not even sure if anyone is nice.

    Cons

    Verbaly abused by management team. Benefits are not good. The whole environment is very depressing.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your problem who is the controller and accounting manager. HR is aware of the problem and nothing is done. Owner needs to spend more time in the office than out meeting her customers. Owner is so out of touch with her employees. There is a big turnover there. Lucky if people last a year.

    Pros

    Some nice people. Decent, but expensive, benefits.

    Cons

    Some managers don't even understand their department. Lots of vision with little follow through. Big ideas, no path.

    Advice to Management

    Facilities are horrible. Get real managers instead of just who you have available at the time. Invest in knowledgeable people.

    I worked at Foley Equipment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun driving, and working around heavy equipment.

    Cons

    Upper management is focused on weaknesses and failures of employees not their strengths. High turnover rate due to firing of employees all the time. Do not give proper training

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee's strength's not weaknesses and mistakes. Quit firing employees and give them support and training.
