I worked at Federal Signal

Pros

It was interesting to know what happens when a car goes through a toll booth and what happens to charge the owner of the car for the toll. The web based application had lots of different options to learn.

Cons

Long hours and panic fixes lead to bad work life balance. Salary is way below market. There is little to no communication. Things are sprung on you at the last minute. No training available.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop treating your employees like mushrooms. You need to communicate more and give some incentives. And let them not have to work on the weekends once in a while.

    I have been working at Federal Signal full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Probably the most outstanding positive things about Federal Signal are work/life balance, training opportunities (you need to be your own advocate here, however), and generally friendly culture.

    Cons

    Generally lower-than-industry-average salary and sometimes limited professional advancement can be problematic. Accountability for many functions is also wanting, which makes for a difficult work environment at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication of strategy, as well as its implementation are areas for significant improvement.
