    I have been working at Shaw Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have just celebrated my 20th Anniversary with Shaw Industries. In my time with the organization I have found that Shaw values thier people, they invest in our development and provide growth opportunities. It is a large organization but the culture is more like a small family business. It's a great place to work

    Cons

    Slow to change with limited growth opportunities in current role.

    I have been working at Shaw Industries full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Shaw is one of the first employers I have worked for and actually enjoyed in a manufacturing setting. The atmosphere is great. Supervisors and management are very polite and helpful individuals. They give you many opportunities to succeed within the company. It has been great working with everyone at plant HT. Even with the closure of our plant Shaw has done an amazing job providing resources, and job opportunities. I can't wait to meet everyone at plant Z1.

    Cons

    -Pay scale at other locations for similar jobs is significantly different.

    Advice to Management

    No advice I can give. All of the management team I have met so far have been great.
