    I worked at Rotovac full-time

    Pros

    Lots of varied work opportunities, interesting market and product mix, lots to learn from customer interactions, direct communication from owner.

    Cons

    Small company with strange management dynamics, poorly defined policies, unrealistic expectations of worker performance, high pressure environment, not a politically correct atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Take some basic HR training classes and learn how to properly treat employees. Treat employees more consistently against published policies would go a long way to improve moral.

    I have been working at Rotovac full-time

    Pros

    decent pay, ok benefits and insurance. It's a small company so the work environment is fairly relaxed.

    Cons

    The management seems to constantly be coming up with huge ambitious projects and then either forgetting about them or replacing them with all new huge ambitious projects before anything is finished. Common sense dictates the best way to be productive is to complete one task and not start another until the first task is done, this is not a philosophy embraced by the management here - and they either don't care or don't accept that they are overloading their employees with unrealistic work loads.

    Aside from that I don't feel like the employees are very well respected by the management. There are cameras everywhere (to watch employees) and at one point the toilet lid was taken off in the bathroom because apparently the management thought that would make people work more time. Employees are encouraged to take time off if they are sick but are given the third degree if they call in needing a sick day.

    Advice to Management

    More focus on finishing projects and less focus on inventing new ones.

    You have to give respect to get respect.

    Pros

    Larger company so the salary and benefits were decent.

    Cons

    Very top-down company. They called at all hours of the day, even on weekends if they "needed you". Asking for time off was an awful hassle and they always gave you crap for it, even if it was vacation time that was allocated to you. Constantly breathing down you throat with ridiculous expectations and micro-managed everyone. They have cameras setup on everyones computers to make sure you aren't doing anything that "isn't work related." All they care about is profit margins and making money. They expect you to bend over backwards for them but will do little to help you in a pickle. Not willing to send anyone to training for anything or hire extra help. They like running the place on as few people as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro-managing everyone and let people do their job. Just because you pay well doesn't mean you own the employee and their personal life, we have a right to have time off too. Set an example and don't go on vacation for weeks on end and expect your employees to work 6 days a week on a salary and then give them crap for wanting one day off.
