    Pros

    They used to be a customer centric company when they were privately owned. They believed in taking care of all customers (internal and external).

    Cons

    Upper management does not care about the people and who work their. They are only concerned about themselves. People don't matter to them.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people because they take care of you.

    Pros

    They really work with you on everything as far as time off to benefits and any questions you have about your job itself.

    Cons

    When you go to full time they drop your pay 25 cents and you are then required to work Saturdays while part timers do not need to work weekends unless they volunteer, Always felt as if part timers were valued more than full timers

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your fulltimers rather than worrying about losing part timers, if I knew I could get to be Monday-Friday within 2 years or at least working mornings rather than nights I would have felt better about going. I worked full time to support my family and never got to see them

    Pros

    The pay is decent and the hours are Ok. The employee support of Middleton Outreach Ministry is a bright spot.

    Cons

    Remember in high school when the popular kids laughed about everyone else, were super mean and destroyed each other with backstabbing? Add in procedural b.s. that's controlling and counterproductive and you have Springs Window Fashions. Oh, wait, I forgot that they plow the parking lot in high school when it snows. plus 1 for high school.

    If that's not enough, stick around for Christmas, when you have the pleasure of working day in and day out in a competitive Santaland department store setting that's distracting and unprofessional and offputting to anyone who isn't jolly, doesn't celebrate Christmas or those who just want to come to a normal workplace, not a nutso wrapping paper explosion.

    also, be prepared to buy your own office supplies and your own tissues and work in a dirty office with employees who steal food.

    Advice to Management

    Be mature adults who empower your employees to make good decisions--that is why you hired them. Don't talk about your employees behind their backs. Be professional.

    I worked at Springs Window Fashions full-time

    Pros

    There's a lot of great people here. But at the end of the day, It's a job-pure and simple....If you're looking for a job and not a career this is your place.

    Cons

    The company is a mess with little direction. True talent is underutilized here as only dominant personalities get upper management's ear. Few career growth opportunities, despite what's said during interviews. Despite several long-timers at this company (sometimes, incredibly, 20-30 years!) the turnover is very high. This company has a mind-bogglingly lack of organization. As best I can tell, almost all other 'associates' (as employees are called here) dislike their work. Benefits and pay are lacking. No flexible work hours. Manufacturing is in Mexico and it is extraordinarily disconnected with the headquarters in Wisconsin. Be prepared to spend all day in meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Office policies are very outdated and not attractive to

    Pros

    - Benefits, 401K and Profit Sharing are great
    - Pay is competitive
    - Company is growing through acquisitions
    - There is a lot of tenure at this company

    Cons

    - Working around the clock is the norm, not the exception
    - There are no work from home opportunities unless you want to do sales or customer service
    - Even though the company is growing, the shared service staff does not grow with it
    - Vacation policy is outdated. The office closes for the week between Christmas and New Years which can be a blessing and a curse. You are expected to use vacation to cover the days that are not company holidays. What if you don't celebrate these holidays?

    Advice to Management

    Put your employees first and encourage a better work-life balance. You need to update processes and technology as the company continues to grow or you won't keep up the the changing workforce.
