    I have been working at Steelcase full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great product, well known brand, amazing research and resources, freedom to create your own approach to sales. Management is very invested in the companies success, and thus your success as well. The compensation structure creates a warm, team environment.

    Cons

    It’s a large company so it can be difficult to navigate at times, learning how to utilize resources (& even what is available to you) can take a long time.

    I have been working at Steelcase full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Most of the Leaders are excellent, caring people. Products are Leading Edge and backed by Insightful Research. The company takes care of good employees. Global Leader.

    Cons

    Constant focus on cutting costs via headcount makes employees feel threatened and drives people to proactively look for an opportunity with better long term prospects.

    Advice to Management

    "You can fool your boss, but you can't fool your peers". You stopped asking for people to review their Managers. Fix that.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Steelcase full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Generally good employee morale, great physical work environment, competitive pay, great bonuses, lots of collaboration with people of other cultures, opportunities to travel and grow skills.

    Cons

    There are some "sinkhole" careers that can be hard to move on from. Steelcase doesn't generally react fast enough to change, which hurts profitability.

    Advice to Management

    Focus even more on employee wellbeing, and less on work-driven initiatives. Plenty of obvious efficiencies to be gained that could result in massive cost savings that are never acted on. Ensure good people fill the roles available.

    I have been working at Steelcase full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, ethical company, interesting product.

    Cons

    They laid off half of full time QA's and kept the contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to make money on your products. Get strong leadership in the Portland office. Remote management isn't ideal.
