    I worked at Rich Products full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent company to work for. Very progressive. High quality in all aspects. I began in a secretarial position and advanced to management. I was always treated fairly and with great respect.

    Cons

    My employment with Rich Products was excellent in every aspect. Thinking back to my experience with the company, I cannot come up with any one area that I would change.

    Advice to Management

    My experience with the company was excellent and I heard nothing but more of the same from others working there after I left to pursue an opportunity to relocate to my home town of Lancaster Pennsylvania.

    Pros

    The Rich Family.
    Healthcare; in house daycare.
    Lots of great people who care and go the extra mile.
    Diversified businesses provide some insulation.
    Fair bonus program.

    Cons

    Having been at Rich's for over 10 years; it appears that the new Dir/VP level mgmt. is no longer a collaborative/engaged and supportive team.
    Culture has turned from positive and engaging to win/lose; us vs them mentality.
    It is sad to see this change happening and I wonder if the Rich Family really sees what is happening to their company; this cannot be good for the next generation.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise the family to get more deeply involved in the people side of their leadership and listen to those in the building who are expressing concern over these changes.
    This is a great company; let's not let poor leadership take us in the wrong direction.
    Listen to what has to be evident!

    I have been working at Rich Products full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Only pro is that I get paid and have a job.

    Cons

    This is a terrible company to work for. Their work ethics are terrible. They treat employees horribly. The benefits are sub par. The place is dirty and the employees they have working here are scary. They will hire anyone that walks. Leads will also lie and set you up for no reason. Too much favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Train your line leads better. The leads/management needs to learn how to be more personable. Line leads and management abuse their power.

    Pros

    Benefits and perks they give you to look the other way.

    Cons

    The entire place is run by politics. It's who you know or don't know that determines how you are treated and paid.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the bad apples. Stop promoting ones who tell you only what you want to hear.

    Expectations are set very high. Sometimes Director level management doesn't give needed support for success.

    Continue doing what you are doing but challenge the Director level to support their teams better
