    Pros

    There is free parking.

    Cons

    Let's just say when the CEO can afford to personally donate 100k to his alma mater, he has absolutely no idea what it takes to retain good resources. Unappreciative, disrespects employees, is arrogant and incompetent..... the list goes on. Stay as far away as you can.

    Pros

    Direct reporting reporting reporting manager

    Cons

    new mgmt not communicating properly, spend money on innovative products instead of hiring all your sidekicks. I've been with the company for 15+ years no profit sharing. We all work very hard new management is not understanding larger area to focus on and we all make the same. I am leaving and working for competition

    Advice to Management

    Joke in industry old products is why not buying not lack of effort on your employees too late

    Pros

    Smart coworkers
    Benefits - health/dental
    Coworkers were nice

    Cons

    Senior team is all middle aged white men. No diversity.
    Female Directors exist in one function.
    Lack of feedback on performance
    Forget about advancement unless you are a suck up
    Do not say anything negative if you are asked how things are going. It will be used against you.
    Secret hiring takes place and one day you are introduced to your new boss.
    Record years of performance, but no bonuses paid out. Over promises made to the board year after year.

    Advice to Management

    Look at a calendar. It isn't the 1950s.

    I worked at Springs Window Fashions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Human Resources dept is stellar! Pay is good and higher than most employers in Madison area. Health insurance is high quality and minimal cost to employee. My manager was very supportive and an advocate for me.

    Cons

    I wish I could say I would refer people to work at here but I cannot. Facilities, policies, processes and technology are VERY outdated. Even more so the culture is outdated. It is like a step back in time. No one works together on common goals with a plan. The strategy is "put out fires". In addition, they are owned by a private-equity firm and I would highly research what that means. My impression is that this drives a culture of only caring about bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Have a clear plan and strategy. Let people make decisions. CARE about your employees. Talent is the most important asset to a company and you surely show that you do not believe that.

    Pros

    Very talented employees
    New leadership seems promising
    Competitive compensation

    Cons

    Crazy high turnover, not surprising since management and SLT do not take the time to appreciate or learn what employees do day-to-day.
    Very resourced challenged teams make for very frustrated and stressed employees.
    Very little opportunity to grow or learn.
    No natural light, Springs is a dungeon.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and provide them with the necessary resources to succeed.
