    Good place to work

    Not a good place to stay employed

    Hourly Production (Current Employee) Napoleon, OH (US)

    ProsPay is somewhat competitive. The company keeps up on payroll.

    ConsA lot of favoritism and " good 'old boy" attitude. Pay will be spent keeping up with insurance premiums. Have to fight for fairness on the floor. Claims to be family oriented. Working at 11:00pm Christmas night is not my outlook of family oriented.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a grip on your lower management. Less meetings and more production.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Decent place to start, uncertain future

    Brand Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsNice people working hard
    Iconic brands that offer a variety of experiences - different types of products, types of consumers, different impactful marketing levers
    Good place to start your career & build skills

    ConsInconsistant work environment that can be very manager specific
    Poor & deteriorating culture
    Employees question leadership's ability to set direction or achieve it
    The current general sentiment is one of fear and frustration as the company does quite a bit of downsizing and is unable to make a significant change in course.
