I worked at Shaw Industries

Pros

In this era carpet complanies pay well, shaw is one of the best I think, they offer insurance like medical, and Life. Through shaw I had gain some techniques to better me as a leader.

Cons

It may take forever to up the ladder in this company. Most of this is mainly who you know rather than the knowledge and experience you have attained. sorry for my misspeling I am in a hurry.

    I worked at Shaw Industries

    Pros

    The pay was great. Good Training. Good benefits. Education benefits.

    Cons

    Poor Management, good ol boys club.
    Unexpected layoff.
    No notice to hardest working, promotions went to the laziest people that sucked up to management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should be evaluated by lower management. Most of the midline managers don't get the credit that upper management gets and they are the ones getting the work done.

    I have been working at Shaw Industries

    Pros

    - Company with deep pockets
    - Work / Life Balance
    - Company cares about the local community

    Cons

    - Benefits have become sub-par over time
    - Many I.S. employees aren't require or have 4-year college degrees
    - Management sets unattainable sales targets in order to not achieve employee bonus triggers
    - Company is still living in the 1980s when it comes to experience or knowledge in critical departments
    - Tons of dead weight exist in key management areas
    - Hiring from outside areas is frowned upon in many departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    (1) Step up and removed management level associates that are not getting to job done.
    (2) Start purchased outside software instead of having internal developers drop the ball time after time.
    (3) Start thinking outside the box and stop thinking the "Shaw Way" is always the best way.
