Some companies are far better to work in than others, do you think they are all the same?

Production jobs are the ****. Lot of stress involved sometimes. Production numbers and quality sometimes don't mix. Do you want it fast or do you want it "right". The answer is yes and yes.

Bear in mind that glassdoor is not even a pseudo-scientific survey. It's just a place where people can rant without fear of reprisals. Kinda like TGP.

I worked with a guy that used to report directly to the CEO ... he sounds like a walking nightmare.

I'd rather buy a guitar from a place where people like their jobs ... like indonesia.

:D

Most of the posts on that site were from managers and others who did not work in production.

In 20 years, i've worked at alot of jobs that sucked, but i didn't cry about it cause i wanted to get paid.

In this economy, i'd rather be working to pay the bills, if someone prefer's happiness over that, they should get another job.:argue

How do you know that? Because they said so? LOL

I'm pretty sure I can post a review on ANY company on that site without ever having worked there.

I'm sure you could but why the hell would you want to? You really think all those comments are from people who hold a grudge, and that there is absolutely nothing to it, even thought the criticisms are remarkably consistent? Oh I forgot you own 100 guitars so you know the truth.

Oh well, the way the rumors are going they will be out of business in 2 weeks, so what are all those employees going to bitch about then?

They should be thankful they have a job. Ask anybody that used to bitch about Circuit City what they think.

I don't know about the rest of you, but it's getting really tiring seeing all the Gibson-bashing threads on this forum. From everything I've read on any of these threads, Gibson don't sound that unusual for a typical large company. Maybe not the best, but I'd hazard a guess that they're far from the worst.

Even I have started to wonder if there is a certain small group of individuals with an axe to grind (!). No matter what, it's all getting very tedious. If you think gibson sucks, good for you. You don't have to keep reminding the rest of us.

I was at the Memphis Factory this summer and it truly seemed like everyrone loved what they did and took pride in there Job and product. Could have been BS but I prefer to live in my lttle fantasy world and think otherwise.


FWIW, I worked for IBM ( Factory worker ) and really hated it. My brother worked at Stienberger years ago when it was in N.Y. and he hated it also. Factory Jobs suck.
