Poor management, no advancement opportunities, and talent is overlooked.
Can't Say (Former Employee) – Calhoun, GA – April 10, 2014
There are very good employees at FieldTurf, but the more talented and important are overlooked and underpaid, while the under-qualified are well compensated and management works to decrease their workload by hiring unneeded employees, due to their lack of understanding of their job. This stems from upper management micromanaging non-direct reports due to apparent distrust of their reports. This leads to the most talented/qualified employees being overworked and underpaid because they are quiet and management don't know the extent of what goes on in their everyday duties and the importance of their accomplishments. Many employees have been there 10-20 years, and are let go/discounted because they do not agree with unwarranted changes to increase profit margins by decreasing quality, something the company was founded upon. Many times, the management look to micromanage plant employees labor costs while hiring in analysts and more managers that only increase overhead in order to spot efficiency measures, that ends up being counter-efficient.
