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

    Pros

    Shops and warehouse are kept relatively clean, and new tools sometimes get delivered in a timely fashion. Benefits package is comprehensive. Accumulating paid-time-off is satisfactory compared to other low paying employers in the area who don't offer any.

    Cons

    Safety and training is a joke here compared to other leading manufacturers I have personally visited. It doesn't help that the CEO wishes the company to "go LEAN" if actual hard changes are not put to top priority. Instead, large, new projects are the focus while maintaining equipment properly, and keeping hazards to a minimum are left neglected.
    It also seems pay raises are avoided or kept to a minimum.
    Overall: Company respectability is poor

    Advice to Management

    Take the time you have now to improve employee quality instead of product quality. That includes raising the standards of the workplace environment and reliability of equipment. OSHA and NIOSH regulations MUST be observed with 0 tolerances.

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

    Pros

    Full dental medical vision benifits

    Cons

    Stulz promotes from the outside as far internal job postings go it's a complete waste of paper from a company which touts going green. The culture of the production floor at the Frederick Maryland facilty contains racism, sexual harrasement alcohol substance abuse, workplace violence and gang like culture. The production management at best have a highschool diploma with no formal managment training or college education. Speaking of education they have a training facility just down the road for outside contractors but never offer or encourage production employees to take part in the training. As far as safety goes there isnt even a safety program. Most accidents seem to get pushed under the rug, they employ an independent auditor called See inc. Which comes thru performing a loose audit/inspection, employees are discouraged from talking to or expressing there concerns of safety issues with these inspectors. Speaking of inspections and standards they claim ISO certification which if this would be true anybody could be ISO certified. This certification/ inspection is usualy preformed by a gentleman who has been doing it for some time he does find allot of ISO issues but somehow Stulz always seems to slime its way to ISO certified. Lastly most modern companies have a human resources department as does Stulz but here at Stulz it's a different. A staff of three who basically only complete payroll, recieve applications, answer the phone, and hangout. When asked questions regarding leave, pto, scheduling, hours worked, internal job postings, safety issues, and employee harresment/ conflicts they refer you outside the office to a member of production mangement who has no answer for you as these issues in a normal company environment would be handled by the human resources department.

    Advice to Management

    Go to school ie community college or accredited university and learn how to treat and speak to people. Hold daily meetings with your staff regarding how good they are doing before dumping a bunch of negative numbers down there troats. Have you guys ever heard of positive moral reinforcement??? Create a training formal training structure for new hires so everybody is on the same page. Learn to use a computer because thats how modern business works comminucate better more efficiently. Start a safety and employee of the month, quarter and year program for each department. The people you have are good workers they want to work. Also show your staff you stand behind them too. Its really frustrating when your supervisor is supposed too stand behind you when your a good employee and all you can do is think about yourself and how does this benifit me your a leader now buck up or quit!

    I worked at STULZ full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great product to sell. Good factory support and interesting customers and projects.

    Other staff are nice and most people tend to get on well together.

    Cons

    Management (or more particular: The Manager) has no sense of how to treat people.

    Staff are managed to within an inch of their life. Phone records checked and staff monitored constantly. Management is completely paranoid and unable to let good staff do their job without interefence.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new manager!!

    Pros

    Alles ist schön , toll und alle sind nett. Zumindest wenn man einige Bewertungen so liest. Ein Schelm wer dabei nichts böses denkt:) Wer es glaubt ist selber Schuld.

    Cons

    Wenn man so einige Bewertungen liest, denkt man als Mitarbeiter, ob man in einem ganz anderen Unternehmen arbeitet: Fröhliche Kollegen, tolle Führung super kompetente Familie, die alles im Griff hat super aufgestellt für die Zukunft oder gar wie einer schrieb eine "HAMBURGER Perle". Na wer es glaubt wird selig. Das Unternehmen hat weder eine Perspektive noch eine Zukunft. Alles ist veraltet und es hersscht ein Hauen und Stechen untereinander. Eher glaub ich das die Bewertungen wohl so schlecht waren, das man sich jetzt professionelle Hilfe gesucht den laden in einem besseren Licht darzustellen. Wer die guten Bewertungen glaubt, ist selber schuld. Achtung hohe Mitarbeiterfluktuation!!!
