    I worked at The Carlstar Group full-time

    Pros

    Good people to work with at the plant level.

    Cons

    Corporate management is the worst I've ever been associated with. Micromanages the plant leadership teams without any idea of what is going on. Then holds plant leadership accountable while the corporate leaders encounter amnesia. Corporate leadership, especially the COO, is bringing the company to its knees. Key managers at many sites are leaving, which will continue. I hate...

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourself! True leaders empower their associates to perform and support them while doing so. You would think at your pay grade, you'd be smarter than you are indicating right now as you are showing your ignorance. You aren't above the rest of us.

    I have been working at The Carlstar Group full-time

    Pros

    Mostly nice people to work with at the plant level. Other than that, not much to say.

    Cons

However, you will be blamed on for not getting other (multiple...

    I worked at The Carlstar Group full-time

    Pros

    Started out good after transition from Carlisle. But it went down hill after that. Good people at the plant level.

    Cons

    Horrible corporate leadership. Some of the most arrogant people I have ever worked with. Making employees work 7 days a week. Firing people that disagree with them.

    Advice to Management

    My advice quit Take advice the people who work at the plant. Get out of the penthouse stop treating people like they are property.
