    I have been working at Henry Wurst full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    good employees, creating innovative products for customers. Some of these reviews are ridiculous. Paycheck cleared the bank most of the time and people were cheated out of contract bonuses? Ridiculous. I've been here a long time and none of that ever happened. Disgruntled people should look inward and see if they are contributing or only complaining. Always paid on time, good benefits. It's not a perfect job, but what job is? Lots and lots of employees have been here for decades. That wouldn't be the case if some of the things people have said here were try.

    Cons

    there are some real negative nancys that need to move on

    Advice to Management

    keep moving forward with cool new products and get rid of the naysayers

    I worked at Henry Wurst full-time

    Pros

    Paycheck cleared the bank - most of the time.

    Cons

    Corrupt management. Lied to customers. Lied to employees. Cheated folks out of contract bonuses. Long hours. No recognition. Favoritism and nepotism runs rampant. Salary was below industry standards and you're more likely to get a pay cut than a raise - no matter how hard you work.

    Advice to Management

    Bank needs to remove Wurst family from management positions and bring in competent management team to drain the swamp - then sell it off to a company that gives a damn about ethical customer and employee business practices.

    I worked at Henry Wurst (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    For a large company felt very laid back. Most people are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    At time of employment the company felt like it was struggling. Went through rounds of lay offs and pay cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Need a more cohesive workforce. A lot of departments felt segmented and felt like they were only looking out for themselves instead of th company as a whole.

    Pros

    Good medical benefits. Good teamwork and dedication among co-workers.

    Cons

    It was a positive, growing company just 3+ years ago but has deteriorated rapidly with lots of turnover. Lost key several key people and clients. Good example of bully management - unprofessional and disrespectful towards subordinates. Overall product quality is down. The pay rate is poor with no increases in 6+ years. No motivation and no career growth potential.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the current president and get new leadership that can bring FRESH ideas into the business. Replace sales with positive, out-of-the-box thinkers who are excited about their product. Offer competitive pay and give workers incentive to meet goals. Managers need to encourage staff and not dwell on their mistakes.
