    Pros

    Company offers good benefits, reasonable management, great emphasis on workplace safety. Good lateral opportunity. Great company culture. Management has a great open door policy.

    Cons

    Very limited opportunity for upward career advancement. Management has become increasingly obsessed with 'efficiency' metrics. Shift schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce reliance on questionable efficiency metrics and associated processes to gauge real production efficiency.

    I have been working at Romac Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, stable company, competitive benefits. Significant company growth projected for next 5+years as they increase automation throughout. The handful of people who stick things out here are well taken care of and respected by senior leadership.

    Cons

    Many new and inexperienced managers. Be prepared to go to battle to get the salary you deserve. Very vague job descriptions. IT is understaffed and is very slow to provide new and needed infrastructure to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in employees. Consider loan forgiveness program to help retain newest generation of college grads. Improve quality of communication among supervisors.

  3. "Great family culture, weakness against other Employers in several areas"

    I have been working at Romac Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Family environment with many long term employees, collaborative as long as you go long with their culture and norms. Not expected to regularly work more than 40-45 hours to get the work done.

    Cons

    Lagging edge company outside of its Industry. Not for those with backgrounds in leading edge companies

    Advice to Management

    More flexible work/life balance offered across the company. Not consistent

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

    Pros

    A lot of nice people at this company, just not in management. If you don't work on the shop floor, you can have a pretty good work-life balance.

    Cons

    You will only find men in positions of power here. They do not truly value or respect the staff that work there. The culture is to make you feel like you are lucky to have a job there. The wages are low compared to comparative companies and you will have to fight all the time to get a wage increase. Benefits are good, but expensive for the employee. There is a ceiling here where only people who are related to the founder will be in management. Shortly after the company laid people off in 2008, froze wages and cut benefits, there was a stock buy-up and a number of managers showed up with new Mercedes.
