I have been working at Raven Industries

Pros

If you are about to retire, this is the company for you.There is not a lot opportunity due to the fact of it being a company that is already matured. Company values experience, over skills.

Cons

Company doesn't follow it's open door policy. Command hierarchy, makes it difficult to advance in career. Very "Political" company, since they tend not to live up to their promises.

    I worked at Raven Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    "Steady pay". A place to help you pay some of your bills if you're in need a pay check, in which we all are.

    Cons

    Notorious for lay offs. No room for growth. The security of your job is determined by management's ability to secure contracts in an era of business where people are outsourcing their work over seas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm honestly not sure if this company needs the departments that they currently have "management" in. There are two and three person departments that can be consolidated under one manager, but they will ignore that and will lay off an entire shift of individuals on the manufacturing floor instead.
