    I worked at Permasteelisa Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great friendly work environment. Project meetings held weekly to make sure everything is on target. Tuition reimbursement after 1 year of work. Great healthy insurance.

    Cons

    Strict 8-5 hours. No work from home allowed even during really bad weather/storms.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for employees to work their hours even if its 9-6 or 7-4. So that it works out best for families, which will leave your employees happier who then will work harder.

    I have been working at Permasteelisa Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting projects, good place to start your career, with multiple programs utilized to learn from. Some travel required.

    Cons

    The place has a very cliquish environment. Sometimes it seems like I'm back in high school. Lots of nepotism. Some workers don't work full 40 hours. Come in late, leave at 5 or whenever. Multiple breaks taken.

    Advice to Management

    People need to be treated fairly and like human beings. When I first started working in the department, I was ignored and left to fend for myself. I wasn't even introduced to the department until 2 weeks in. That being said, the work environment is changing for the better and going the right direction but at a snail's pace.

    Pros

    Good environment and reasonable accommodations. If you ever get hired permanently, there might be more pros

    Cons

    They should warn people before firing them over little obvious things

    Advice to Management

    Hire people for a permanent position instead of bleeding people dry from not obtaining benefits.

    Pros

    At the start it was a good atmosphere to be in, good team work, everyone got along. Tons of back-logged work (for few years according to corporate). Benefits were good.

    Cons

    Things went downhill after some months. Things became "corporate" in many areas, even little things (i.e. sign-in sheets of when you arrived and left the office). You didn't feel like you were appreciated. Blame was being thrown around and people were becoming discouraged. Tensions were building, and slowly people left because of the way it had become. Now the office is permanently closed.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to survive listen to your people. Stop being so stuck in your ways.

    Pros

    It is an everchanging industry, constantly learning new things.

    Commute is the biggest obstacle.

    Pros

    Permasteelisa offers a dynamic and innovative environment for working on some great projects! Enjoyable culture, diverse, with a lot of opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    The company struggles to provide adequate communication across levels. This sometimes leads to a lack of sufficient support for employees with high work load or other challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Be as transparent as possible with employees, continue pursuing great projects, and expend a little more effort on retaining top talent.

    Pros

    Good place for a first job. You can learn about tools, blueprints and simple machines.

    Cons

    No room for advance and lots of ex-convicts or gang related people working there.
    Anytime an employee needs something from HR like ask for vacations or apply for a better position they would put tons of obstacles to them.
    Salary raise and promotions are reserved for management "friends". Doesnt matter how good employee you are if the management doesnt like you you are not going anywhere.

    Pros

    The projects you work on are unique and interesting, you are given a lot of responsibility, and there is a lot of talented people in the company.

    Cons

    The upper management is poor and the hours are long! Expect to work 11-12 hours per day and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people better and pay the talented folks you have in the organization before they decide to make a switch.
