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

    Pros

    Company has very smart top management. Unless you work as low-level customer service position, you are at least not in danger of being laid off due to management ensuring the company remains profitable. During the beginning of the economic downturn in 2006, the company ensured that employees would not be laid off and costs were cut elsewhere.

    Cons

    Company cares very little about morale of employees. Company will not look to give more than the minimum raise year after year (and this is just due to inflation). Company is content to let you walk rather than increase salary, regardless of how many additional duties you inherit. Basically it is just a job, but do not expect significant advancement.

    Good environment and good people. They are hiring lots of new managers from outside to leverage with those old school managers.

    No training programs. Benefit is not good. No bonus. Use a grandfather system. Lots of manual job. Work time not flexible. Factory moves to a really far location.

    I worked at Goodman Manufacturing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Earning potential in Houston was really nice. Freedom to do whatever most of the time (because there is very minimal leadership/oversight). Room to grow (because most people try to do the least possible). Pretty simple product, just don't screw it up.

    Cons

    Can you do it for free? No? Ok well can you do it for $10? No? Ok, well, can you do it for $50? - Cheapest is virtually always preferred, rather than take into account the end result. Works great for VP bonuses, but adds a ton of complexity to get anything done. Leadership is poor, seems like the managers with authority are stretched too thin trying to produce enough of their own to seem valuable. Only training is self-procured, if you're motivated to be trained.

    Advice to Management

    Train employees in company's best practices.... develop company best practices. Make sure managers, directors, and VPs are actively supporting subordinates in progressive amounts. Realize that the perceived goodness of the company isn't enough to keep worthwhile employees - there needs to be a healthy work environment.
