Poor management in IT
Extremely poor management in IT from the top down. No direction. No performance reviews. Weekly team meeting constantly cancel for months. When we had a team meeting only 1 person talked non stop for a solid hour. Input and feedback not welcome or needed. You constantly have to guess what management wants from you. Poor communication and direction from direct managers. The IT manager/supervisor was just a junior kid with no experience or training in people management. Please DON'T work in IT!

Canadian Private company under the radar
Samuel Son is an old well established Canadian firm with substantial holdings in the US and Mexico. The company does have a habit of letting go staff without warning, but there are lots of people even in IT for 20 years.
Pros
Flexible, work from home
Cons
Cliques who will protect their fief

Leicatex in London— don’t work here
Whispered promises and hot climate. Not to mention your work will be micro managed and you will be ordered to do extra work for no extra pay.

If you have no career aspirations and feel like getting fired for no reason a week before your fifth anniversary, by all means apply here.

It was a great place to work but the facility I was at closed down
It was a great place to work but the facility I was at closed down. I was there for many years and always got along for fellow works and management. I would love to find this kind of environment again.

Productive and a great place to work
My fellow employees and management teams are great to work with.
I feel that my work effort has value and is appreciated. My work-life balance is very good and I'd recommend Samuel Son & Co. to anyone looking for a company that cares about its employees.

Wouldn't recommend if you are looking for growth
The company is set with old methods and it is hard for the management to accept new processes and technology

Challenging and Supportive
The culture of this company breeds support. Management and the other employees encourage questions and are non-judgemental. It is a great learning environment that challenges you with fast faced work that demands attention to detail and strong communication.

Fun, balanced, work experience
- very friendly, focused and knowledgeable Enterprise Information Management team
- my own cubicle close to my teammates (my preference)

- bi-weekly team meetings to keep track of everyone's progress

- location is close to Costco and good number of restaurants Not too far from Dixie Mall either

- company hosts events encouraging teams to mingle and know each other

- team lunches every now and then!

staff are great, management no so!
I planned and structured my day. Being aggressive about my sales numbers was self motivating and it brought in good results. I sold more steel than several other sales associated put together. I learned a lot about steel, sales as well as that hard work does not pay off. I was laid off at the peak of my career for no real reason, this was hard to understand. No one else at Samuel understood either.
I enjoyed selling and got on well with my co-workers, six years later and we still keep in touch. All in all it was a good experience.
Pros
meeting with customers
Cons
got too involved and spent less time with my family

Long term employees
An excellent work atmosphere. Employees were treated well and respected which reflects back to numerous long term employees.
Daily job requirements differed which made for a good change up in duties.
