    Pros

    There's a lot to learn here and some room for advancement if you want it. Everyone is friendly and helpful

    Cons

    The only thing bad is the turnover rate is high because even though you learn alot the pay isn't what it should be

    I worked at Pratt full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Tradition of strong family values and commitment to individuals, but . . .

    Cons

    Recently sold, but old leadership still in place. Rode the expansion of retailers in the 90s and early 2000s, but failed to navigate the retail crash. People have been taking pay cuts, but they have not avoided several rounds of layoffs. Lost major customers.

    Advice to Management

    Time to let new management take over.

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

    Pros

    You don't have to come in to work if you don't feel like it, and you don't have to turn in time off. Nobody is watching and since the "special" people do it everyone else can too.

    Cons

    Too many really to list. Some are so unbelievable that it pains me to list. There is nothing good to say about working here, the work is boring and mundane, and all of the systems are atrocious so any work that is done has be done 3 or 4 times. Pathetic.

    Advice to Management

    There are many reasons this company is going broke. There is no accountability or responsibility for anything. Because of this everything is crap in, crap out, crap returned, crap remade, only to be returned again, crap out, crap returned to be made a 3rd time, 4th time, 5th time and so on. The new ownership of this company has done nothing to help this organization except for the fact that the doors are still open. The leadership has not changed, has not been directed to change, and therefore the downward spiral continues. VOMELA, STEP-UP!

    Pros

    Pratt's widespread service and product offerings provide employees with multiple avenues for career growth whether it be in manufacturing, services (creative, installation, etc), supply chain, or customer relations.

    Employees who work hard, have a positive outlook, and are forward thinking (not complainers) are almost always recognized and rewarded.

    Pratt is staring to "get it" in our industry and is beginning to really commit to the customer experience as well as the employee experience. 2010 will be a integral year in Pratt's growth to the next level.

    Cons

    Location in Indianapolis

    Pratt has had difficulty in executing initiatives and business plans that are relevant to our industry.

    "Mr. Right Now rather than Mr. Right" concept in which business plan initiatives are focused on. (this is starting to get better)

    Might utilize too many consultants....hire more qualified senior management types (at Director level)

    Needs to get rid of more "dead weight" and bring in more talented positive focused individuals (this also has recently gotten much better).

    Advice to Management

    Current direction (Spring 2010) is the correct path we need to take. Keep investing in the customer experience and really focus on the employee experience as well. Reward positive contributors and coach those who have opportunities for improvement. Feedback is very important.

    Pros

    all others in warehouses and a few in the offices are very nice! it's great to be able to get along with others no matter where you work.

    Cons

    people kiss up to get what they want. they praise temp employees before pratt employees. company keeps giving pay cuts & hours cut, yet give more hours to certain employees. i wonder if pratt is familiar with EEOC?

    Advice to Management

    get off your high horse. you are NOT better than those that really keeps the company going, the real workers in the warehouses.

    Pros

    The pay isn't bad and the employees are nice. However, the people you're working for will work you into the ground.

    Cons

    The higher-ups (the Pratts) have no idea what's going on in their company, so the middle management feels licensed to treat their employees like slaves.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be passive-agressive.
