    I have been working at Igloo Products full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The leadership is fantastic. For the first time since I've worked here, we have a strategy. It is very clear where we are going and what we need to do to get there. We have the ability to impact results and make decisions, with no micromanagement. Our teams are empowered. So looking forward to what the future holds. Based on the changes that the management has made thus far, our future is so exciting!

    Cons

    The office could use a bit of an update. Certainly nothing major - just a little dated decor. A little sprucing up would help the work space be a little more inspiring.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The transparency is greatly appreciated.

    I have been working at Igloo Products full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Iconic brand, great potential to grow, great people on my team in Distribution. Corporate office is good environment to work.

    Cons

    Chief Human Resource Officer calls you militant if you try to make changes. Executive leadership has no direction for the business. Seems like they are not business leaders but more a bunch of friends with money in their on click

    Only been there 6 month but already know we will not improve until the board changes the leadership.

    Advice to Management

    ACON, need to remove friends and get real business leaders into leadership roles or sale off to someone who value people and growth

    Pros

    Good people, good teams

    Cons

    CEO is just a face for the investors, the VPs spend too much money, and now they're having to do layoffs as a result. All the people who actually did the work are being laid off, meaning everyone left is stuck doing the work of 3 people and as salaried employees, are not eligible for overtime. Long hours, little appreciation, and no job security.

    Advice to Management

    Spend less money on low return investments and invest more in the employees to get the job done.

    I have been working at Igloo Products full-time

    Pros

    Good discount on Igloo Stores.

    Cons

    A bad manager can take a good staff and destroy it, causing the best employees to flee and the remainder to lose all motivation.

    I am currently looking for a good place to work, I do not want to jeopardize my skills gaining bad habits and see a manager being nice with the VP and corporate but disrespectful with a hidden agenda with her employees.

    BEING A GOOD PERSON
    does not depend on your religion, status in life, skin color, political views, friendship or culture.
    IT DEPENDS ON HOW TO TREAT OTHERS.

    Advice to Management

    The floor employees do not trust your QUALITY MANAGER, they are afraid her because she has a big mouth. I have to be quiet because I am afraid to be her next target and lose my job.
    Corporate is blind and does not see reality

    Pros

    This place is a mess and morale is in the dumps
    Spiraling downward fast. Laying off good people and crumbling.

    Cons

    Horrible HR team that have no idea how to be helpful--they are idiots. HR leader has no idea how to deal with people--she is a control freak and a joke--Dr. Cold as Ice Winters. Mark Parrish the CEO is a lot of air with no pragmatic solutions. the American Dream involves Igloo going down the tubes. A few years ago before him--this company was thriving and hitting our numbers, employees were happy with a lot of events, training and support.
    This place is a mess and morale is in the dumps
    Spiraling downward fast.
    Laying off good people and crumbling.

    Advice to Management

    Why do we still have the entire HR team? Do we really need a staff of recruiters--who are idiots. Before you are letting other good people go in these layoffs and get Mark out of here!
