    Pros

    Was rated 2017 Best Place to Work for in Jacksonville, and I thought that it was. Friendly, congenial associates at the Corporate office. Was able to talk to anyone including senior management.

    Cons

    None really. I felt the work environment was good. Be in good physical shape though, because the elevators are down quite frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciated the updates that came out frequently to keep associates updated; be more communicative if you're not happy with an associate's work.

    I worked at Suddath Companies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to get a job here, some great people to work with

    Cons

    Benefits are outdated, older male-dominated management, 1950's culture, constant turn over, financial issues

    Advice to Management

    Hiring an outside agency to do an assessment of the culture, welcome young talent and their ideas to help, hire talent that you want to build a future with an not let go after a few months and jump to another savior. If you don't take a moment from rearranging the chairs on the Titanic and really listen to the younger talent you have your company will fail and be consumed by competitors who have two men and a truck. They are listening to the market and so should you.

    I have been working at Suddath Companies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are helpful and friendly. Makes it easier to deal with horrible management and bullies and daily injustices. Coworkers and the need to pay my bills are the only reason I get up to work every day.

    Cons

    New management. Not enough space to write all the
    pain they make you go through. They rule by fear. If you are a salary employee they will make you work long hours until you bleed to death.

    Advice to Management

    Won't waste my time as they won't listen.

    Pros

    Decent pay, upbeat people, growth potential, variety of work, flexible schedule, telecommunicating options, free coffee, financially secure company, supportive management

    No bonuses, hours can be long working salary, benefits are not the best, managers can sometimes be hard to reach, not enough structure set in place for customer paperwork cutoffs

    Advice to Management

    Providing better health insurance options would make everyone a little happier.

    I worked at Suddath Companies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A lot of really good people work for this company especially at the branch level. The benefit package is probably above average but their paid time off (PTO) is outstanding.

    Cons

    While Suddath like to talk about being a family company that is certainly not the feel you get when you work their. Some of the upper management are as smart as you can get the their loyalty and people skills need some work. With Suddath it's all about the bottom line. Yes we all know that a company needs to make money to survive but Suddath has forgotten about the work/life balance and keeping quality employee's is not at the top of the agenda. Suddath is so big they forgot how to move furniture.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your people. Do not allow your sale staff to sale such deep discounts.

    Always looking to improve with new technology but keeping a personal touch.

    Tough industry with a very stressful busy season.

    I worked at Suddath Companies full-time

    Pros

    The Company has a good health insurance plan as well other benefits. They also do great stuff when it come to employee appreciation.

    Cons

    The salary is joke and to get a raise it like 20 to 40 cent depending on the budget for each department. Overworked and too little pay

    Advice to Management

    Really need to be clear on what each job is and what they are to be in charge. Also 38 cent is not raise, it a back slap to the face after doing three jobs in one.

    I worked at Suddath Companies full-time

    Pros

    Free parking, breakfast and they do offer fun activities for employees.

    Cons

    Workers that put in hours do not get paid enough. Salaried managers who only work 25 hours a week get bonuses and praised for the little work that they do. Benefits are a joke, they will try to blame it on Obamacare but they're really looking out for the company and not the employee. Too much of a good old boy network. If you're young, you are treated as such and no room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Need too look at the marketplace. You will keep losing good talent unless you're ready to let go of mid level managers who are not managing.

    I worked at Suddath Companies part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I personally earned a lot of experience working for the company. If the opportunity arises they will entrust a lot of responsibility and tasks. It's known that during the summer time there is a lot of business so there is plenty to do.

    Cons

    Upper management is very political. Older management doesn't seem to understand change and how to advance. The various software programs that they use makes it difficult to communicate which causes the most problems. They need to advance and become more singular.

    Advice to Management

    Make it so that younger people will want to work there. Have a worthwhile internship program that will make it so that post-graduate students will want to continue working for you. Stop recycling employees and old business practices.
