    I worked at Goodman Manufacturing full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Technically the job is great. I loved what I did. B2B sales.

    Cons

    Definitely will get screwed on pay. The game is as such. Good commissions year one. Year two cut commissions by half and raise budget by 20-30%. Every year. You will have to work three times as hard to even come close to making same amount previous year. Seen guys get commissions at 0.0075%. They talk big talk on new business bonus but watch fine print. I know other sales guys in regions outside the western division that had good managers and didn't get messed with on commissions but if you are west of Mississippi you will be messed with without fail.

    Advice to Management

    Your turnover sucks. You churn through sales staff every two years because of the "what have you done for me today" attitude.

    I have been working at Goodman Manufacturing (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent Pay, holidays and weekends off. Lots of overtime in the summer if you need it.

    Cons

    Moving all jobs to Waller TX in the next few years. Old management was decent but they have either been promoted up or moved on, most of the new management are not worth working for. Lots of favortism with the new management. The healthcare plan is ok, but overpriced for what you get.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that the company started off as a family business and most of the long term employees have that family mentality, treat your employees with respect and remember their family comes first.

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, 401k, pto

    Cons

    Southern California management team manages by intimidation and bullying. HR does nothing to help the employees in this process but tell the managers what employees say and the intimidation starts. The turn over rate for employees is ridiculous, and one would think corporate would take notice and try to fix the issue instead of letting good people that care about the company get treated like they do by a management team that had been plagued with numerous complaints and law suits.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to be team players and really care about employees.

    Pros

    Money is good. Hours aren't bad 6-2:30, so you still have a lot of time in the day. If you work in any lab the job is good. 13 paid holidays.

    Cons

    HR. This is a points system plant and they don't keep up with it at all. You have to make appointments to see them. That's ridiculous. I have never seen a plant where you had to make appointments after hours to see someone in the front office. Payroll clerk is about the only useful person in the office. Work on the lines can be very difficult because there is no training by the supervisors. The supervisors is another area that is a con. Plant closing.

    Advice to Management

    You need to train your people better. You need to communicate, because we all know that no one does.

    Pros

    Large company based in U.S. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between departments. Management expects to be respected but fails epically to give respect. Blatant examples of favoritism amongst staff. Attitude towards and treatment of non-managerial employees does not do much for employee morale. Very stressful working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation and respect to the "little people" who are the foundation of the company.

    Pros

    Good pay due to being union

    Cons

    Lack of communication and not being able to receive parts to stay in current production

    Advice to Management

    Assemblers are more than just bodies. Listen to someone, you might just learn something. It would be nice if engineering would work more then just day shift.

    I worked at Goodman Manufacturing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Warehouse worker, Orlando Distribution Center. Corporate structure is there. If that is a pro. Competitive pay, always over time available.

    Cons

    Safety of warehouse workers is the lowest priority. Absolutely no fans for circulation in warehouse, gets up 110 degrees on some days. Somebody is going to get hurt sooner or later and it will be at the hands of management. Slow moving growth, irresponsible day to day business practices.

    Advice to Management

    Get some people with integrity and actual experience running operations and you may be able to turn this around
