    I worked at Greene Tweed full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some really great, smart people that work there, especially outside of management. And there are a few good folks in leadership as well. It's a small, private, family owned company so leadership likes to get involved on the day to day activities. Overall compensation packages are pretty good. International opportunities.

    Cons

    Very flat organization, very little room for growth. Supposedly a "matrix" organization, but no one there knows the actual organizational structure, and they prohibit org charts. This makes cross-functional communication nearly impossible unless you have been there for years. Very high turnover rate. Constantly shifting "strategies", like a new one every six months. Somewhat unreasonable expectations from upper management. Nepotism runs rampant with generally negative impacts.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a strategy and stick to it for a few years. Growth takes risk, you need to realize that.

    Pros

    Pays well, if you just need a good pay for whatever you need to do then go for it.

    Cons

    Doesn't require you to use problem solving or critical thinking. After a while it will drive you crazy if you need challenges to stimulate your brain. You go on auto pilot after about a month. The management doesn't care about their employees. You are a means to an end, nothing more, that is why you are paid.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating us like we're machines. We deserve respect, consideration and to be listened to . You can show your appreciation for our work. You wouldn't be where you are without us, or did you forget?

    Pros

    Great people to work with, and for the most part, higher ups treat everyone with respect. Relaxed and flexible environment, family run/privately held so they do their best to put their employees first. Also, excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Small company, so there is little room for career mobility. Most career movement is lateral. There are "lifers" that have been with the company for a while and they take advantage of the family that runs it because of their tenure. New senior management is right step in the right direction, but there will be causalities.

    Advice to Management

    People's morales are pretty low because there's still a perception that there's no job security due to down turn in market as well as new senior management. Please prioritize employee retainment--sometimes it felt like we weren't valued

    Pros

    Great pay. Not too intense work environment. Friendly place. Seasonally busy.

    Cons

    Strict depending on who is in charge. Sometimes gets too physical of a job.

    Advice to Management

    Give the workers more room to relax and do the job.

    Pros

    The only reason to work here is pay and vacation time. That's why they get 2 stars instead of 1.

    Cons

    Management has no idea how to treat people with any respect. They act like the workers are scum. They think they are the greatest thing on earth. It's a joke, if the workers were half as bad as management acts, the company would have closed up years ago. Just about everyone there hates the place. If your looking for a miserable place where you get bullied around, and get treated like a 2nd class citizen, you found it!

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue, the workers are the ones that make the company money. Management just steals money from the company! Come out on the floor and talk to people. You don't have to treat people like crap. Most of your management should be fired for how they treat people and how they talk down to people. They hide behind thier authority and get away with it. That's why you have to hire armed security every time you get rid of someone. The company wouldn't have to worry about people coming back to harm them if you didn't treat them like you do.
