    Pros

    Great benefits for a factory worker. Factory is well kept with an emphasis on cleanliness.

    Cons

    Making plans after work can be difficult because you're never told when you're going home until 10 minutes before they say the shift ends .
    Upper management does not communicate well with workers. Have seen bosses who never interact with the workers.

    Pros

    The company truly is committed to the well being of everyone in the workforce and it shows in the daily interactions. It's a very welcoming environment with a number of opportunities to impact the organization and collaborate with others.

    Cons

    In pockets, there are "old school" mentalities

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the focus on employees and their development. Always look for ways to change or enhance the culture without sacrificing the foundation that makes this a great place to work.

    I worked at Steelcase full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good and generally kind people. Great quality furniture. Very smart coworkers. Diverse background (not in GR office unfortunately). Comfortable and very good hours. Work life balance.

    Cons

    Open door policy not so open. Decisions from upper management are still super opaque. Very risk averse so company moves in turtle speed. Said they want to change but very resist to change at the same time.
    Salary not very attractive.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to trust their own instinct!! Company needs to find its own personality and make statement instead of just following market.
    Steelcase needs to learn when hiring international people, they can't treat them like locals
