    I have been working at TriMas full-time

    Pros

    Offices are in a beautiful area - Bloomfield Hills, MI. The corporate staff is small, under 50 people.

    Cons

    Currently undergoing restructuring under a new CEO, so there is some short-term upheaval that will hopefully result in long-term gains.

    Advice to Management

    One of the keys to effective change management is to over communicate with the staff. With all of the restructuring going on, the rumor mill is providing more information than management. This is taking a serious toll on office morale.

    I worked at TriMas full-time

    Pros

    One pro - co-workers are friendly

    Cons

    High turn-over, no raises, no bonuses, senior management doesn't know what they are doing, no one can make a decision, everyone is worried about lay-offs or closings, emphasis is on the "numbers" rather than what needs to happen within the plant.

    Advice to Management

    Get an understanding of the companies you own so that you can manage them correctly. Your loyalty is directed more towards the shareholders than towards your employees. If you showed that you appreciated your people, and put managers in that understand the business, your shareholders would benefit from this. Stop buying companies, mismanaging them, and then closing them. You are messing with peoples lives. If you don't understand the business you are buying, leave it alone. Accountants should not be in charge. Numbers count but production is better.

    Pros

    Good benefits, co-workers were awesome.

    Cons

    Worked at Lamons Houston which is managed by Trimas. Increases/bonuses have not been paid for the last 3 years. Some locations were closed due to the mismanagement and wrong decisions from the new leader in Houston.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the Lamons leadership team.
