    I have been working at Springs Global full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Been in business a long time.

    Cons

    They don't pay their employees good. You are lucky to get a raise every couple of years. They don't value their employees dedication for all their years there.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people what they are worth.

    I worked at Springs Global (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Because of the companies history it has some wonderful brands and is placed with large retailers.

    Cons

    Springs' inability to change with the times during a constricting market and leadership by managers who lack basic understanding of textile manufacturing are leading it to a slow but inevitable end.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who know how production works, not just photoshop.

    Pros

    None. They have closed their doors.

    Poor pay and benefits. Management (owner) was running the place into the ground. Spending a lot, only to put out fires, everyday.

    None - they have ditched the place.

    Pros

    Not many pros of working for company. It's not a very competitive environment and most employees are generally nice and friendly.

    Cons

    Many employees have chosen to leave because the company has experienced so many negative changes in the past few years. Management turnover is high because of lack of opportunity and no financial rewards such as bonuses, 401k match, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management of company needs to change. There is no concern for employee financial or emotional welfare. Culture of company changed dramatically with management change in past few years. A difficult work environment with employees always waiting for bad news.
