No idea what they are doing themselves.
Graphics (Former Employee), Pittsburgh/St. Louis/Atlanta/Appleton/BostonJune 6, 2015
Pros: Co-workers
Cons: Corporate / high level executives and management. Shareholders.
Company has no direction. Acquisition of sgk just made it a bigger mess. Too many levels of unqualified management that didn't communicate with each other and little to no communication with employees. "Smart sourcing" was just sending work to China. My advice is if someone takes a job there get paid well and keep the job search going. The employees there were knowledgeable and worked hard to exceed customer demands. Didn't matter to corporate, they would discard those employees and make bad decisions to get their bonuses. Worked there for a long time and got out. Almost any employee I knew or met within the company hated it and was fed up with the company.

Rough/Finish Grinder / Repairman on caskets (Former Employee), Richmond, INMay 29, 2015
Pros: Fast paced, first shift, good benefits, fair pay.
Cons: Unknown when shift ended, poor communication between managment and employees, unorganized health savings account.
I enjoyed this company because of the fast paced setting. They often rewarded us with free lunch for safety regulations being met. However never knew when my shift ended.

Growing Company
Manager, Product Marketing and Innovation (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAMarch 24, 2014
Matthews is a old company that is growing into a large corporation. There are challenges and opportunities for it's employees to address in most functional areas.

The category (memorialization) can be challenging. Also there is frequently resistance to change.

I do enjoy leveraging my creative problem solving in many of the business challenges.

SAP Implementation Specialist (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJuly 31, 2013
Pros: the people i worked with
Cons: the companies continued policy to keep sending work out of the us.
It was an overall good place to work - very diversified businesses all under one roof. Unfortunately they decided to outsource the SAP support to IBM and primarily their off shore team in India.

Shipping and receiving clerk (Former Employee), Tualatin, OregonJuly 16, 2013
Pros: some employees are exceptional
Cons: the company focus is benefit for upper management only.
Found the company not relating or rewarding employees for working hard. The internal system for improving used as a tool to get rid of employees. Management is not open to input.

Contracted artist for Matthews International
Graphic Designer & Imagery Assistant (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAMay 18, 2013
Pros: many different tasks, great coworkers, detail oriented work
Cons: contract work, unforseeable date of job end
Working a regular 8-5 Monday through Friday full time job through Matthews International. Matthews International is one of the leading companies in statuary, memorials, casket and mausoleum products. I work with the art director and four other designers to create an intimidating amount of photography touch-ups or create photorealistic mock ups of memorials to be used for their memorial design website being launched in June.

I am given a set list of memorials to complete within a time frame, and normally while working on that project new priorities would arise that would taken care of immediately. A large part of the job was time management and learning how to shift from one project to a totally different project at the drop of a hat. It has been very fast-paced work but each image created is extremely detailed and accurately made using original line art or old photography.

Dont work for these guys..You will regret
sales (Current Employee), IndianapolisSeptember 28, 2012
Pros: no pros
Cons: management is just lacking. beware of mis information
I have had personal experience with this company, specifically the Midwest area management. They dont conduct themselves honorably. If you put your trust and faith in them then beware. Experience is they dont tell the truth and have no idea on being forthright and positive.
