    Pros

    Stable company, friendly people, decent work life balance for the industry it’s in.

    Cons

    It is way too big of an organization and too top heavy and vertical. I felt like i was working for the government. Everyone’s roles overlapped and you had to get approval from 10 different people on one thing. To work your way up in the VP/C suite in this company, you pretty much have to be german. they definitely maintain their “german” ways of doing things including assigning german abbreviations to everyone’s titles. Not sure why that even matters globally but okay...

    Advice to Management

    Organization is too top heavy. Simple as that. You have nearly as many VPs/managers as staff.

    Pros

    The company was very employee focused.

    Cons

    The company is losing touch with the customers who will be driving growth in the future. Too much focus on high volume, low margin business.

    Pros

    Good Benefit tools such as ADP and KN Benefits.

    Cons

    Bias reporting. No one takes action if someone reports an incident between employees and management. Poor communication skills.

    Advice to Management

    Human Resources Team is in charge of people. The most important part of any organization . Not only do they bring in the people that make the company who it is and what it is, they also create the culture with which future work “generations” have to adapt.
    HR is tasked with retention , this trickles down into training the line managers usually. And that affects the attitude of the whole company. They should try to keep your best people happy, productive and present. Employee satisfaction, training and retention are all ultimately the responsibility of human resources. Do more research on your employees and not because you know them because of the color of their skin.
