toxic environment to work in, but a very good compensation working more than 12 to 14 hour a day, sometimes 3 weeks in a row with no rest and reasonable expectations

Very racist. Very critical. Expect you to do all the grunt work without giving you enough hours to live off of. Work every weekend every holiday. Manager will take her life problems out on you.

Great people to work with, but the work life balance must change. Putting in 15 hour days for weeks at a time. Upper management always changing structure and guidelines making deadlines unachievable

Workplace culture is only workable if you have the emotional maturity to not take things personally and you have an incredibly thick skin. The work is challenging and enjoyable.

If an opportunity to work here presents itself, don’t walk away.... Run away. The culture is designed around a year end bonus that is pre-determined. Then throughout the year, they look for ways to penalize you to take the bonus away from you, a little at a time. If you are late (even 1 minute) for your shift, you are penalized. If you make an administration error, any little thing, another penalty. I creates a bizarre and toxic culture to work in.

My immediate superiors look after the welfare of their subordinates. They are considerate and promote work-life balance. Co-workers are team players and are patient especially to newly hired personnel.

This is a place where it is "Do as I say, not as I do, and DO NOT, under any circumstances question ANYTHING you are told to do." They don't even like it when you question a directive so you can understand the who, what, why and how of the directive. They do not encourage expanding your horizons so you can move withing the company or grow as a productive employee.

Good company to start out in. The people are great to work with. They create a team environment. Good place if you are a self starter and a self learner.

One thing you stay for at NYGÅRD are the people. Depending on your position, you may have some low work/life balance, however you control your own career.

The left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing. At. All. Very poor communication and zero organization. The entire place thrives on crisis management, and, if on the occasion something actually went well, it would certainly very soon fall apart. You could be fired or promoted at anytime depending on the mood of the room. So-called “meetings” would go on for hours and hours with no end resolve, and if a final decision was ever made; it would surely change direction the very next day. Chaos, pressure, gossip, hostility, employee turnover (usually employees taking legitimate stress leave) run rampant. If anything was ever questioned, the solid company motto is; “we’ve been doing it this way for over 50 years”. I witnessed a ton of skilled, quality people come and go. I suppose though, if you have very thick skin, can turn a blind eye to a LOT, don’t mind being criticized for minimal pay while having your time wasted, you may have a chance of survival.
Pros
Adrenaline rush on a daily.
Cons
Your overall health will suffer.

Long hours are expected during PDC & Line Closing with no compensation. Our clothing allowance, the Christmas lunch & the annual family picnic have been taken away. Nygard is not a good company to work for.

If you are self motivated, it can be a great place to work depending on SR Exec you report to. I was giving many opportunities to take on different challenges. But as a former peer said, you need to watch how close you get to the sun.
Pros
Highly motivated people can make a difference but very demanding
Cons
Long hours & poor culture
