    I worked at Rheem (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Tends to have very low turn-over, fairly recession proof (sales remain virtually steady during national/global recessions) thus almost never layoffs due to recession.
    Steady growth (sales) history.
    Has progressive short/medium/long term business plans/goals and meets/exceeds goals every year.
    Competitive benefits.
    Competitive/high-end pay for many positions.
    Numerous in-house training opportunities.
    Employee purchase program can save you thousands when replacing your HVAC system.
    Intelligent and friendly coworkers make for a pleasant work environment.
    Progressive IT environment.

    Cons

    Company tends to hire outsiders rather than promote from inside (only a con if you're looking to climb the ladder.)
    Most promotions are in title only as job duties change little if any (not necessarily a con.)

    Pros

    Rheem is an organization that is dedicated to continuous improvement ... in its products, processes and people.

    Cons

    Continuous improvement is on-going so not all processes and policies are in place yet.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on track and focused on the organization's goals.

    Pros

    Variety of opportunity
    Great people to work with
    Great channel partners

    Cons

    Moves slowly, decisions made at high levels far away from customers. Despite the diverse product lines, the different business units do not work well together.

    Pros

    Good place to gain experience. They have a good organizational culture. They provide a lot of training opportunities. They have good benefits and generous PTO.

    Cons

    Organization is too flat. Not enough opportunity to advance. It’s near impossible to advance past middle management positions. They tend to hire executive level positions from the outside.

    Pros

    Rheem is a solid performer in a stable industry

    Cons

    Job specific training is sorely lacking. The culture has changed to a more aggressive cutthroat one and away from the familial atmosphere of just a few years ago.

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

    Pros

    Insurance costs to employees are low

    Cons

    The company forces people to work excessive hours, even 70+ per week. 2% raise each year for those meeting expectations. This company is fine with breaking laws and discriminating against others. No, working hard will not lead to greater things, it leads you straight out the door! You are penalized for using sick and personal time, just because they offer it doesn't mean you can use it.

    Advice to Management

    Educate your decision makers and managers and treat people with respect.

    I worked at Rheem full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Healthcare was decent. Pay was ok. If you value your happiness and sanity, don't work here. There are no pros.

    Cons

    This plant was the most mismanaged place I have ever seen. None of their reporting is correct because no one in the plant reports anything correctly. They have no idea how much inventory they have or where it is.

    Most people have worked here for decades so they can get away with anything. No one respects authority, and that includes non-plant workers such as the purchasers, receivers, supervisors, etc. this place is a mess, I can't believe they are still in business.

    No one knew how to use their software. There would be days where numerous water heaters were made, but no one put it in the system, so according to reports none were made that day....even though they were physically made.

    The people are rude and hateful.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck staying in business

    Pros

    In town, less commute for folks working in corporate office.

    Cons

    Don't see how the exempt positions are expected to work every week extra hours. It's a receipe for chaotic situations.

    Advice to Management

    You say you are not a sweat shop and you pay very well. But money is not the only motivation. How would you expect your employees be always productive if they are working 60+ hours EVERY week in a year? That creats favouritism, politics and hatred. Management should look into bringing in Agile like methodologies to balance IT teams workload so they are not in always 'reactive' mode. It speaks of lack of planning on Management's part. Also your employees or contractors shouldn't be using their native language in the hallway or meetings. It makes anyone uncomfortable since they would only understand English.
