    I worked at Steelcase (More than a year)

    Pros

    -culture
    -pay
    -work life balance (no one really works a 40 hour week - come and go as you please)
    -Great people

    Cons

    This review will be specific to what's going on with the company right now. Sales are at an extremely low point, and they're letting people go like crazy. Specifically targeting ages 50 and up.

    They also lack in doing research before dumping a bunch of money into something. For example their "Smart + Connected" team. They invested millions into that and have yet to see some sort of return.

    Work is siloed and distributed unevenly. Not sure that management has a plan.

    I worked at Steelcase (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits and focus on their young professionals was great. I was given many opportunities to learn and excel.

    Cons

    Once you are hired, it can be difficult to get fired. This can be both good and bad. I found that there were a lot of "bad eggs" in Sr positions. For reasons unknown to me they never got fired. Instead, Steelcase would simply move them to a different department. Which meant that those who actually cared about the company and the quality of work that came out of their department ended up doing a LOT of extra work.

    Pros

    If you do your job well you'll be a stand-out. This makes promotion potential quite high if you're a go-getter.

    Cons

    Flexible hours. Too few levels of management above Zone Leader. Operators aren't paid very tell - you'll hear about it regularly.

    Advice to Management

    Review compensation packages for operators, it's dated.

    Pros

    Good benefits, lots of job openings

    Cons

    management is stuck in the mindset of how they have always done things for the past 20 years instead of getting current. there seems to be a high turnover of people that have not been there very long.

    Advice to Management

    listen to the people... they are the ones doing the work and may have answers
