    I worked at Tempur Sealy International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, help local community, good 401K match

    Cons

    Poor training, culture and leadership are lacking, groups do not operate as a team and departments do not leverage expertise of other departments and they work against one another because of their own egocentrism.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, encourage productivity, learning and new ideas! Almost every review says the same things about Tempursealy, maybe it's time to start listening to your most valuable assets and stop losing hard-working, productive and highly intelligent employees!

    I worked at Tempur Sealy International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible working hours in the field. It was great when it was Sealy until Tempur ways took over.

    Cons

    It's all about greed and CEO bonus. No raises. Cut mileage. Eliminated seasoned old school hard workers in layoff. Put low paid younger ones in positions. No compassion to those who were laid off. Severance didn't even equal a week per year.

    Advice to Management

    CEO is making poor decisions that will hurt their customers. Cutting corners in production, salaries, and bonus potentials. How can Scott Thompson sleep at night? And.. don't say because he sleeps on Tempur.

    Pros

    Company events, good supervisors, safety focused, great team in the production parts.

    Cons

    New leaders are negative. Our production is never enough. Don't recognize good jobs, always say couldn't you do one more? Always think we're doing something wrong. Have to use vacation time when we shutdown because of they're poor planning. Don't care about the hourly workers. It's becoming a sweatshop.

    Advice to Management

    Realize the impact the negative leaders are having on the workforce and other leaders. Make a change before it's too late and good workers leave.

    I worked at Tempur Sealy International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome pay, medical, dental, vacation, investment and sign on bonus

    Cons

    HR and Key leaders have that good old boys mentality. Work condition in no air condition old factory that has multiple structural challenges and many employees are related so one might not fit in if not from geo-area.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on quality training, provide work life balance, and control family group hiring

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Diverse workforce.

    Cons

    Upper management will take no responsibility for their actions and leave you hanging. If you want to work here document everything. The Plant Superintendent was incredibly indolent and failed to do many of his responsibilities such as Monthly safety training, Production board walks, and daily talked bad of the Plant Director to department managers. Play favorites while some managers got away with $100k quality mistakes other managers were fired for trivial issues.Very Unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Create an outline for all new managers of their daily responsibilities and provide thorough orientation and training. Have integrity and appreciate your employees.

    Pros

    There are still some people that care (until they too leave for greener pastures)

    Cons

    Company is gearing up to become a short term growth, and to hell with the future type of corporation. New Executives don't care about the people, only their 77 million dollar bonus if they can get the margins up.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the company you work for, don't just see it as a pay day before you jump ship elsewhere.

    I worked at Tempur Sealy International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I used to think it was the quality of the product (Tempur-Pedic), but now that they are looking for any way to squeeze even more profit out of the company, product quality will likely take a hit.
    Comp and benefits were good when I was there but I do not project that to continue.
    NOTE: Tim Yaggi was interim CEO and did a decent job.

    Cons

    No accountability and when you try to hold others accountable, you get labeled as "the bad guy" or "difficult".
    New CEO Thompson doesn't talk with the employees - his job is to "manage Wall Street" (a direct quote from what he told us when he came on board.
    The remainder of the leadership at the C-level has a few bright spots (CFO and VP Sales are quite good), but generally speaking if you don't work for either of those guys, you can expect little leadership, finger-pointing, backstabbing, favoritism, and no transparency. VP's like to take credit for others work without giving recognition to the team. Don't be a threat to them or you'll find yourself on the next round of layoffs.
    The organization operates in silos without a shared vision. One female brand director tried to fix it by holding cross functional meetings on a monthly basis for her category and was making some progress, but she was part of the 140-person layoff.
    Don't expect to move up the ladder.
    Little to no diversity.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe take a walk around the building once in a while and talk with the employees who care about the company, its products, and its customers.

    Take a longer term approach the strategy. I know that is not what H partners wants you to do. Short term results are fine and they can be had (after all the company was making its numbers before H partners launched their activist campaign).

    Pros

    Great company growth potential as world leader in the mattress business. Much upside potential if properly managed. Good strategic plan in place but still too many moving parts related to overall projects on the list.

    Cons

    Current leadership team is lacking core business knowledge on inter-spring mattresses which is a large portion of the revenue. There is still a lot of tribal knowledge that is being over looked on key decisions that is creating concern for sustainability of the inter-spring mattress business.

    Advice to Management

    Be very careful with making decisions going forward. Not sure downsizing that recently took place was the best thing to do given the workload and uneasy environment already present. That along with great profitability numbers raises concern over what is next on cutbacks.
