    Pros

    Discounts on beds. Insurance isn't too bad

    Cons

    management has lost the respect and trust of most plant employees. Plant supervisors are very unprofessional, blatantly harrasesing employees, and instigating drama, and endless lies. Theft of product is wide spread. And there is severe racial tensions instigated by the supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Investigate Brenham management with a microscope.

    Pros

    Benefits and equipment to perform job are fantastic! Vacation time is comparable and salary is generous. Many other departments and their employees are great partners, wanting to assist new people in building knowledge.

    Cons

    Customer Service Senior Management/Director lacks leadership skills, tact, integrity, has high turnover of her managers/supervisors/trainers/analysts. Bullies direct reports in front of others if they provide input or question any concept or direction she provides and then she eventually belittles them until they leave . Goals change w/o notice or communication of plan. Direct reports are treated like minions.
    Tenured hourly employees in CS resist change and it hurts Cust Svc. Two departments (HR and CS) do not agree on approach so team will never truly accomplish a transition or become a functional team and they are great people, just resistant to change. Director will meet with reps and send them to HR to complain about Supervision or Manager. Reps can run out of sick time and use weeks more without being held accountable because director doesn't want poor employee survey and company guidelines aren't clear but no one will update.

    Advice to Management

    Help your middle Management by either truly telling them they will be micro managed by a woman that will attempt to terrorize them (you lost more than 10+ middle management personnel since she was hired in 2 yrs) or you could place her where she has no reports to impact and place someone in the position that can develop the couple of people you have left and your two new folks. Do 365 appraisals and do not allow your HR dept to discard all the feedback provided on how the director communicates, performs, bullies, has bias', etc.

    I have been working at Tempur Sealy International full-time

    Pros

    Companies morals and values, building relationship with upper management to devise an objective and accountability per account. This then allows and shows the growing and success as a team. Working independently but having the support when or if needed. Seeing opportunities and selling it in by the relationships I grew.

    Cons

    Realignment of territory, more windshield time then in front of customer, new accounts without any challenge or opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Quality vs quantity - work smarter not harder

    Pros

    Company is focused on winning in the market. Very good work environment. Excellent products and broad spectrum of well-known brands.

    Cons

    Lots of influence from outside parties (shareholders, customers, suppliers). Need to find ways to stay relevant with the consumer - there are lots of options for people and our brands and products need to stay at the top of the list. Keep advertising!!

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on winning versus the competition and keep investing on products and brands

    Enjoyed the way they take care of their employees; changing working environment. Management is great and they provide upward mobility.

    Cons

    Sometimes attempt to be too modern and make too many unnecessary changes. They offer a niche product that has a market and can just stick w what works.

    Pros

    Great working environment. Takes care of its employees top to bottom. Provides upward mobility and friendly work setting. Changing working environment.

    Cons

    Makes too much of an effort to stay in front of other 'same industry technology'. Has a niche product and should stick with what works rather than making needless changes to seem in front of current

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Take care of your employees and the company will continue to grow and be great. THUMBS UP.

    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!
