    I worked at Gadge USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Great coworkers. Positive attitude and support from most management. Interesting projects. Team building and training are also a plus.

    Cons

    CEO gets involved in everything (which is his right), but his expectations and communication aren't clear. He's also condescending and makes culturally insensitive remarks. SNOB!
    Purchasing terms are not standard and there could be skimming. Explains why IRS has visited.

    Advice to Management

    It's a good place to work and has gotten better, but there's still a lot to be done. Sales team is good, but communication is challenging bc most work remotely. Again, CEO is an arrogant snob. You're selling boxes and packaging, not curing cancer.

    I have been working at Gadge USA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Solid financial base and steady employment, New employee training is well planned. Generally good teamwork at ground floor level. There is a recent willingness to introduce new technologies.

    Cons

    Domineering and egotistical senior management run unchecked. Micro-management is the theme of the day. Unrealistic workloads. High turnover but with little opportunity for advancement. Any real opportunities are filled from the outside - despite many insiders with greater experience and skills.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more open to listen to, and react to concerns of the employees who get the job done day in and day out. Most won't tell you what they really think unless it's truly anonimous. If you need an outside consultant to figure it out you are probably not on the righ track.

    I have been working at Gadge USA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are some excellent hard working people here. Luke, Viv, Karen, Kelly. The people who are working very hard and long hours, hopefully are compensated for the effort.

    Cons

    Small working space, very loud and uninviting. Unfriendly Upper Management, It's do as I say, no input or suggestions taken from the workers. Sales guys held in very high regard by management.

    Advice to Management

    When you have a conference call, go in your office and shut door., instead of going to the conference room (that has no door and putting the call on speaker). The office is loud enough, use your office and door!

    Pros

    The company seems stable and the pay is reasonably competitive if you are willing to work 60 hour work weeks.

    Cons

    There is constant turnover, generally followed by bringing in new outsiders. Promotion from with is rare. There is a lack of respect shown to employees with constant and abusive nitpicking. Positive feedback is rare.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to listen and provide more positive feedback. Recognize that the majority of hires have not been long term successful and promote from within.

    Pros

    The pay is great if you do not consider time you spend working( 2 weeks overtiem with no compensation a month). If you get into sale's position you have it made.

    Cons

    60 hr work weeks. Bowing down to sale's reps. The meeting to talk about what your doing instead of doing your work.

    Advice to Management

    Get an HR department to regulate the unfair practices against employees.

    Gadge USA is a great place to work from the upper management to the co-workers. Everyone is friendly and willing to help point you in the right direction.
