    I worked at Myers Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Tickets to Cleveland Sports games are a extra perk. Strong in the Material Handling Industry.

    Cons

    Company does not show loyalty to loyal employees. Salaries and bonuses are limited at the Mid-Management level.

    Advice to Management

    Show that you care for employees that work hard and are long standing employees.

    Pros

    Great co-workers and not much overtime.
    Smaller company with many different brands for experience in manufacturing.
    Free parking and decent building.

    Cons

    Manufacturing is a dying industry.
    Poor leadership and lots of politics.
    No focus on good work-life balance or creative environment. They would prefer to do cube checks right at 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. to make sure you're chained to your desk.
    Poor attitudes, outrageous behavior and disrespectful employees are tolerated. High-achieving employees don't stay long.
    No perks to working there.
    Below average compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on improving the company culture and results will follow. Don't tolerate insubordinate behavior to avoid conflict.

    Pros

    Not any at this time- this company is on the decline - big time.

    Cons

    Their answer to slumping profits is to slash payroll and lay off employees. They have no other ideas on how to manage. Very short sighted outlook. They do not know how to stimulate sales.

    Advice to Management

    Please look farther than the stock price each quarter to evaluate the company and plan for the future..

    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.

    I worked at Myers Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    Pros

    Pay was great and the benefits were good too. Co workers made the day better and the casual Friday's were always a bonus.

    Cons

    Good old boys club. There were no women in higher management. Managers often didn't lead their dept so much as dictate.
