    Pros

    Great hourly people that banded together to survive

    Pros

    Year round work, only one

    Cons

    Lack of any true leadership, complete failure to do the right thing even if it goes against the HR person. Failure to think outside the box and get improvements made in a timely fashion. Continuous change of policies based upon your buddy status.

    Advice to Management

    Let’s stop chasing power and begin chasing responsibility, because if serving is beneath you, leadership is beyond you.

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

    Pros

    High turnover rate gives opportunities for training relatively quick. Management has no clue what is going on so attendance is only thing they are capable of evaluating. Some great people there but everyone is looking to leave.

    Cons

    Company is failing quickly so there is an expiration date but unclear when. HR department is power hungry and nothing short of evil. Bad policies have created a toxic work environment that has an effect on even good employees. Company looks to save money in the wrong places such as holding raises and turning ventilation off in the winter. They will lie to you when you're hired and continue until you've had enough

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what your responsibilities are and perform. Get your employees respect because currently they're laughing at you. Clean out the HR dept because this is where the problem begins. HR is so terrible it's hard to analyze problems past that point. Don't keep telling yourself everyone is replaceable because by now you should know you have a bad reputation and can't replace anyone.

    Pros

    If you want a challenging career don't waster your time. Your not paid for your knowledge or experience. Your paid to say yes mam!

    Cons

    The competition has caught up and is passing in the fast lane. This company is nothing mare than a cash cow for the owners wife. Any semblance of what this company once was is gone. If you want a current, cutting edge position that will enhance your personal growth look elsewhere. And yes, all the positive reviews are the owners lackeys posting to keep their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Retire already.
