    I worked at Myers Industries full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Co-workers are good - peers and subordinates are hardworking people.

    Cons

    If you are not a male you cannot be successful. It is and "old boys club " without the southern accent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the make up of the management team in that division, At one time there were a number of women in management roles. There is only one female left. Looks suspicious, that all those capable women are no longer with the company.

    Pros

    The company is continuously growing! Pay and benefits are adequate and there are many perks. Many friendly people.

    Cons

    Hire inexperience before promoting from within. Poor work ethic is ignored. Lack of follow-thru with management. Problems are not addressed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to and INVESTIGATE & ADDRESS employee concerns & complaints. Offer Rewards, incentives & growth potential for employees that go above & beyond.

    I have been working at Myers Industries

    Pros

    Flexibility for appointments. Usually out by 5. Can usually take lunches off. Free tickets to some events (if you win a raffle) for the Cavs and Indians suites. My job has diverse tasks (prevents boredom). Freedom to use the internet judiciously.

    Cons

    Not competitive pay. Limited women in senior leadership. Limited ability to move up. Raises and reviews are given with no discussion. Raises are capped. 401K "match" program is terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging. When you cut your employees raise caps, don't give the CEO a huge raise above that cap! Employee morale is terrible. People aren't leaving because the economy is down, but they will when it improves. You are willing to do the things needed to improve morale and the company and instead want to keep the same old school manufacturing mentality.
