    I have been working at Myers Industries full-time

    Pros

    Good place to work. Management wants to make the culture better. Excellent benefits and fair compensation.

    Cons

    Culture is still stuck in the old way of operating. Need to upgrade technology.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making positive changes and don't hold on too much to the past. Hire new employees if necessary.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Flexibility for appointments. Usually out by 5. Can usually take lunches off. Free tickets to some events (if you win a raffle) for the Cavs and Indians suites. My job has diverse tasks (prevents boredom). Freedom to use the internet judiciously.

    Cons

    Not competitive pay. Limited women in senior leadership. Limited ability to move up. Raises and reviews are given with no discussion. Raises are capped. 401K "match" program is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging. When you cut your employees raise caps, don't give the CEO a huge raise above that cap! Employee morale is terrible. People aren't leaving because the economy is down, but they will when it improves. You are willing to do the things needed to improve morale and the company and instead want to keep the same old school manufacturing mentality.

    Pros

    Co-workers are good - peers and subordinates are hardworking people.

    Cons

    If you are not a male you cannot be successful. It is and "old boys club " without the southern accent.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the make up of the management team in that division, At one time there were a number of women in management roles. There is only one female left. Looks suspicious, that all those capable women are no longer with the company.
