Low pay, bad management - Go elsewhere!
clerk (Former Employee) –  johnstonFebruary 27, 2013
I worked for this company and was very unhappy with the job, the pay and especially the management - who are very sarcastic and treat the employees like overpaid idiots who can't do anything right! They even make up problems and put you in the middle just to prove their point! You try to defend yourself and that seems to make them even more determined to make you look bad! The pay is low and they didn't even give me a pay raise for the last three years that I worked there! They like to justify it by telling you how much they pay for your benefits. Come On! They treat you like a grade school kid by telling you not to be late because the CEO's window, in the Johnston headquarters, is near the entrance and he can see you! Like he even knows who you are!! SPARE ME! I worked there for ten plus years and had to work for the most agravating supervisor in the world. her name sounds like face. SHE WENT OUT OF HER WAY TO DO AND SAY EVERYTHING BAD ABOUT ME IN ORDER TO GET RID OF ME. I was glad to leave there and look for a better job with a good. That was a Big relief!
Pros
good cafeteria and food!
Cons
the poisonous atmosphere that the management strive to maintain!

Value years of service, rather than education or experience- Johnston RI
FM Global (Former Employee) –  JohnstonFebruary 21, 2013
A nice building to work in, but if you are applying with any experience or education it means nothing. People get moved departments due to years of work and are giving job roles with no experience.

Most managers have worked their way through the ranks after years of grafting, and by pleasing the right people. The pay is below average, and they value benefits as dollar signs.

If you are happy to work in a building with an average age of 40 + who have worked there for 10 - 20 years then this is the place for you.

Finally they have bad management who are lacking social skills and people skills, who show presentations of themselves to their department, it is very cringe worthy.
Pros
nice building, moving blinds
Cons
parking spaces are color coded, education and experience means nothing, bad management.

good steady work, BUT...
Senior Engineering Processor (Current Employee) –  Johnston, RIOctober 12, 2012
steady work, ok pay with great benefits. ...NOT a fun place to work. Management is very sarcastic and difficult to deal with here. They are Micromanagers. There are a lot of good people work here but the culture and work environment that management has created just suck the life out of you! the headquarters is the worst, they built a brand new office in RI it looks like a palace but they run it like a prison.
Pros

Bad environment due to job insecurity
Client Service/Sales Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 13, 2012
I assisted the vice-president in his day to day work by completing daily, weekly, and monthly reports and projects as they came up.

The work environment became quite bad due to job insecurity and gossip.

The job became very hard when most of us were doing the job of two, if not three, people due to layoffs.

The most enjoyable part of the job was that I met a lifelong friend.
Pros
