    I have been working at Sullair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent coworkers and strong management support. Good benefits with 401k match. With new ownership there are lots of investment in products, personnel, and technology.

    Cons

    Not many but restrictive IT policies and a few ownership changes. Sometimes sales staff is tasked with too many nonproductive tasks but overall great company to work for.

    Pros

    Good company to work for, nice people, decent leadership.

    Cons

    VERY resistant to change with A LOT of tenured people in key roles.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable and shake things up. No one should be in the same role for 20 years ... unless you don't want to adapt to changes in the market.

    Pros

    Sullair makes quality products and takes a lot of pride in their durability. Their leadership team is knowledgeable about the industry.

    Cons

    Very slow to change. Many people have been there for 20+ years and are operating the exact same way they did 15 years ago. A shake-up is long overdue.

    Advice to Management

    Shake things up. Move people into new roles and explore new ways of doing things.

    I have been working at Sullair (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and vacation benefits.

    Cons

    Management has no clue how to run a company. The purchasing department can not keep parts in house. Many compressors sit around half built sometimes for weeks. Blatant favoritism between supervisors and select employees. Management allows an angry little man to supervise and he runs things by intimidating people. No appreciation for hard work. Employees that consistantly cause a hostile work environment are left unchecked. HR refuses to help shop employees with any issues encountered on the floor with fellow employees or supervisors. HR and supervisors have been known to belittle and insult employees. The only incentive to work currently is fear of losing your job. Management does not comply with ISO standards and cheat their way through the ISO process. No engineering or quality support whatsoever. Any time theres a quality issue with a part or machine its automatically the fault of the assembly team whether it actually is or not. Employees are told at the end of the scheduled 10 hour day that they are to work an uknown amount of time past the scheduled stop time and if they leave before allowed to do so they will be punished. Morale is incredibly bad among employees.

    Advice to Management

    I personally have never worked at a company with so many angry, bitter, disgruntled employees and the people that manage this company are 100% at fault. I firmly believe that the current management is not capable of changing the environment of this company and will need to be replaced with a mangement staff that knows how to run a business and take care of their people.

    Pros

    Good pay for non union shop. They make your resume look good for future jobs elsewhere.

    Cons

    Back biting & snitches. HR dept. helps management & screws labor force. Coward supervisors that won't stand up for their own labor force against management. Non union shop. Bosses & Supervisors that don't even know their own products. Mechanical Engineers that show no support for the labor force. It's their way or the highway, no room for criticism, or advice. Jealousy among ranks and everyone fears for their job, unless you're a brown noser or a yes man.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They know their job, let them do it. Don't micromanage your labor force. Learn about your products before you make fools of yourselves in front of those that do know your products.

    Pros

    Solid product with legacy, and a name for reliability. The employees who work there are the important piece that keep the company alive

    Cons

    Will not take your suggestions, will not train you to the level needed to be successful. No training plans for in house operations. Mechanical engineering teams will not assist on product development and knowledge sharing. The development of product is done with out input from those who work in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who work in the field. Listen to those who actually work in the field. The service department knows more about what is going on in the field and those designing new product need to listen to us.

    I have been working at Sullair full-time

    Pros

    Work from home however management does not like that. Also if you actually want to make money, this is your only option because you will be underpaid and overworked it stationed in MCI.

    Cons

    Unclear direction and goals. Management sets a marginalizing tone and does not provide the tools for success and refuses to listen to employees. There is a serious disconnection between service, quality, and engineering.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the employees that you have. Understand the employees plight about training and advancement. Management needs to be educated in management and leadership. There is a culture of cronyism deeply embedded in this organization.
