    I have been working at Tarkett full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very dedicated and hard working people.

    Cons

    No monetary incentives or bonuses or raises, nothing that makes you want to work harder. Should have some positions work from home. All departments can't take advantage of some of the non-monetary incentives, such as ballgames and half a day on Friday due to work load.

    Advice to Management

    We've had quite a few people leave the company. There aren't a lot of opportunities to advance and nothing to work forward to. Share the wealth with more than hot dogs, ballgames and parties. We all can't participate .

    Pros

    none. Common sense has been replaced with charts and graphs.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance. Profits way down. They think folks in Dalton are stupid.

    Advice to Management

    Close the office in Solon, Ohio. Unnecessary overhead. Too many executives fightigNg for power.

    Great team at Tandus Centiva, it is like a family there.

    Tarkett definitely has their pros, but there are a lot of managers and no direction. There were a lot of changes in little time.

    Have a plan. Stick with it.

    Pros

    Not many pros here. The new Solon headquarters is in a good location. It's a paycheck. There's free coffee and tea.

    Cons

    There is no strategy, direction or accountability. Many in senior level management have very few direct reports, but are allowed to enjoy the perks of being an executive. You won't be trained or supported by your manager because they probably don't know what you do. Turnover is very high. They pretend to have succession plans and training opportunities, but in reality they only hire externally and often don't even inform employees of open positions.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house with the current leadership. Start investing in your workers instead of the executives. Create a strategy and share it with employees. Learn how to communicate correctly.
