Poor Management
Employees (Current Employee), Lumberton NCSeptember 28, 2013
Pros: floor employees
Cons: poor leadership / terrible human resource department
Company talks a good game of loyalty and culture but will not support their team members or leaders if a mistake is made. Terrible Human Resources department that looks for drama instead of preventing it and no support for employees

Short term focused leadership
Business (Current Employee), Oak BrookSeptember 24, 2013
Pros: christmas bonus
Cons: mis-guided focus
Leadership team is short term focused - only concerned about current fiscal year - almost like they are preparing the company for sale or acquisition. Mis-managed ERP implementation process cost millions of dollars and dozens of jobs. The goal of ERP and the integration of 2 divisions into one was never fully realized so now they are stuck with an poorly – more... working, non-customer friendly vanilla system. Regardless of what they say, they are preparing to sell the company - so continue to expect re-organizations on a yearly basis. – less

Management is clueless
Floor worker (Former Employee), USAFebruary 11, 2013
Pros: benefits
Cons: no one cares about the work, management does listen
Lazy 1st shift, leaving night shift with half the workers as days to do everything. Management fails to see that 2nd shift is getting more work done than the 1st shift. Also a constant war between the two. Bad training especially in the type of wood and defaults to look for in the product. Every other week on overtime because they can't keep up with – more... the work and have more rework than the actual orders. Constantly on one shift so if you're on nights kiss your life goodbye. – less

Good Company with strong values and commitment to giving back.
Project Management (Current Employee), Oak Brook, ILJanuary 4, 2013
Pros: good people. stable. good pay and benefits. work life balance. socially responsible.
Cons: tight purse strings due to economic downturn. can be tough on very ambitious types...
The company has been around for 90+ years, and is committed to being in business "forever" -- when was the last time you heard of such a thing? The business is run with that notion in mind -- decisions are made based on long term impact (not just how the company is doing in a particular quarter which is so often the case in publicly traded companies). – more... The company values are central to the culture - they are often cited as the main reason why a particular decision has been made. Leadership is a mixture of long term employees and newer folks who have brought experiences from other successful companies. This mixture keeps the culture strong, while making it easier to be innovative. The economy these past few years has had a huge impact on the company (and the industry) -- and this has made for a rough time the past couple of years - not as much opportunity for career growth, etc. But the company has made it through, unlike many of their competitors. This too shall pass, I would say. One nice thing -- in keeping with the values, the company puts an emphasis on giving back to the community -- they pay employees for volunteer time off, and donate to a number of charities based on the giving choices the employees have made. Good people. Good company. – less

corporate and their undermen are horrible
Operator (Former Employee), Savanna, IlDecember 3, 2012
Pros: some coworkers are nice.... that is all. :-\
Cons: much of management is clueless from corporate down to the group leaders.
I've been repeatedly harassed only to be wrote up for someone else's grade school like actions. I was wrote up while in training for lack of knowledge (due to poor/minimal training). Their training isn't very well planned out what-so-ever. I have watched multiple people walk out of the factory due to the companies inability to see that we are people, – more... not robots. Corporate refuses to purchase us properly running, and much needed equipment. I could go on and on and have almost nothing nice to say. – less

Applicant BEWARE, alot of turn over at this place, with always layoffs and new upper level faces. Many people layed off in past and hire and lay off way to often with false expectations in interviews. Not a steady place for employment regardless of the economy.
