Fives Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Fives is an English sport believed to derive from the same origins as many racquet sports. In fives, a ball is propelled against the walls of a 3- or 4-sided special court, using a gloved or bare hand as though it were a racquet, similar to hand-pelota.

"Poor company to work for currently taking business that make them no money and as such dispose of there employees whilst management earn 60k a year doing practically nothing if you go for a job here expect to be looking for a new job between 6 to 12 months Cons: Everything else associated with this business"

Technicien de maintenance (Former Employee) says

"Babah,,, Comme citer plus au une entreprise de copinage ou la médiocrité et l incompétence sont facteur d évolution....Des formation sans fond...une sois disant sécurité primordial qui vole en éclat quand le client le demande !!! Des responsables incompétant. Mentir sur les chiffre pour avoir un bon taux de dispo auprès du client voilà la vrai fonction du poste. Bref poste de technicien pas intéressant balai mensonge et flatterie au client voilà ce qu on me demande.... Cons: Beaucoup trop pour moi"

chef d'equipe tuyauteur (Former Employee) says

Responsable commercial (Former Employee) says

"2 at avec bras cassés...chez eux management nul ."

Sales Manager Technical Solutions and Contracts (Former Employee) says

"Fives is living on its past achievements and needs to develop new products. Until this company decides to develop some new products and get out of the stone ages, its sales will continue to suffer. Layoffs and wage reductions will continue to be a factor at Fives."

Service Engineer (Former Employee) says

"very mediocre place to work for has a very poor work standard, no organised work plan or KPI'S for employees carrier growth. poor canteen facility (you have to eat only what they give you) Cons: nothing"

Monteur (Former Employee) says

"Recrutement sur des tas de mensonges. Cons: Il n'y a que ça."

Monteur (Former Employee) says

"Recretument mensonger, on vous vend du rêve.."

Technicien de maintenance industrielle (Current Employee) says

"a part vendre du rêve a leurs collaborateurs et a leurs clients, rien ne va. Pas de moyens, pas de reconnaissance, un management a la limite ou au delà des lois, pas de respect venant de la hiérarchie. Cons: évolution limitée"

ancen employé (Former Employee) says

"Entreprise à éviter car manque de respect total. Cons: manque de respect"

Administrative (Former Employee) says

"Toxic environment with indifferent, clueless management. Bad behavior is tolerated and even encouraged. If you object to the bullying, you will be retaliated against. Don't expect any help from HR; they're part of the problem. Required nine hour days. Way too many unproductive meetings. Petty, rigid rules are strictly enforced because employees are not trusted or respected. The open floor plan is stressful, but this suspicious old school organization believes that they need to keep an eye on employees at all times. There are lots of good companies out there. Don't waste your time at Fives Landis. You will be frustrated and disappointed. Cons: Too many to list them all, but no work life balance, poor management overall, with especially bad senior management in manufacturing group, old school attitude and environment, not a place for progressive professionals."

Technicien de maintenance (Former Employee) says

"Le siège et les responsables sont complètement déconnectés de la réalité du terrain, ils sont là pour faire du chiffre c’est tout, tout ceci aux détriments du bien-être, de la sécurité et de la santé des techniciens. Ce qui est paradoxal, c’est que cette entreprise prône une politique concernant la protection de la santé et de la sécurité de son personnel, soit disant fondamentale. En réalité, on vous fait travailler sans formations, on ne vous informe pas de certains dangers et ne tiennent pas à jour les documents obligatoires, etc... Bref, vous m’avez compris, leur discours bien rodé ne sert qu’à faire briller des apparences trompeuses. Cons: beaucoup trop"

Technicien de maintenance industrielle (Former Employee) says

"Voici une entreprise qui propose bien des promesses et de belles choses à notre arrivée, or une fois dedans n'attendez rien de cette société ou bien de la hiérarchie,pour ma part une augmentation qui frôle le pourcentage annuel. Sinon aucun remerciement, aucune fidélisation , un CE quasi inexistant (100€ par an), intéressement participation 500€ soumis à beaucoup de conditions (Toutes réunies équivaut à avoir les bons numéros au loto), pas de 13eme mois, des heures supplémentaires qui ne sont pas payées à cause d'un accord de modulation! Cons: Tout le reste"

"Malgré le beau nom de ce groupe, aucun retours après entretiens malgré les relances."

Engineer (Current Employee) says

"Job work life balance is ok. Employee pay is terrible unless you are upper management. Management does not listen to its employees which is why the company suffers and is no longer considered a player in the manufacturing industry. Dated technology and outdated trends the business continues to utilize. Average age is 45. No accountability whatsoever in the organization. Cons: No company vision. Company operates like it is in the 70's. No accountibility"

Mechanical Engineering (Former Employee) says

"The review I'm giving is open and honest as possible. I wish I had better news or a more positive sense of future for fives. Without any service department or willingness to work with customers it's pretty difficult to forecast what will happen in the future for the people and employees of fives. Cons: It is not doing well overall."

Manager (Former Employee) says

"Very old school culture. Not progressive. Long hours. Bullying is common place. Management is particularly poor. I hated working there; you will, too. Cons: Old school environment. Petty, rigid rules are strictly enforced. Endless meetings with no purpose.Poor management. Low brow."

chef de site (Former Employee) says

"fuyez, après avoir travaillé 2 ans dans cette entreprise il n'y a rien a en attendre. les commentaire 5 et 4 étoiles sont laisser par le service RH... Cons: le management, la quantité de travail, le salaire, etc..."

Tech Maintenance (Former Employee) says

"Tant de choses à dire... Un salaire à l'entrée pas mauvais, mais pas non plus la folie, des horaires de travail à ne plus en voir le bout, des astreintes "oubliées" non payées, des RH inexistants et incompétents, un travail ingrat ( 80% de ménage - 10% de rapports et traitement de textes en tout genre - 7% de maintenance préventive et 3% de choses intéressantes ). Des responsables qui hésitent pas à vous coincer dès que possible, et ce, par tout les moyens nécessaires, D'autres responsables plus haut gradés n'hésitent même pas à vous faire des menaces. Cons: Tout le reste"

Technicien (Former Employee) says

"Je n'ai jamais compris l'organisation de cette entreprise.....; Cons: BEAUCOUP TROP"

Former Employee - Sales Associate says

"I worked at Fives full-time for more than a year Cons: Horrendous customer service, unethical, poor technology and terrible leadership"

Former Employee - Project Engineer says

"I worked at Fives full-time for more than 10 years Cons: Senior management has no vision or direction. Then they lay off the most experienced employees including sales when work is needed. Life expectancy for project managers is very short don't expect to stay long. This is the biggest complain of all their major customers. Don't be surprised if you're forced to work weekends including Sundays. This was a good place to work at until the new management starting reorganizing."

Former Employee - Sales Manager says

"I worked at Fives full-time for more than a year Cons: Poor Leadership, no direction, short sided management with no long term plans"

Current Employee - Project Engineer says

"I have been working at Fives full-time for more than 5 years Cons: Poor CEO that likely will be there demise"

Former Employee - Administrative says

"I worked at Fives full-time for more than a year Cons: They will tell you anything and everything you want to hear then point fingers at everyone else when it's time to execute the plans. Everyone wants to be the boss but no one wants to actually do any of the work. Horrible horrible environment."

Former Employee - Project Manager says

"I worked at Fives full-time for less than a year Cons: Management has no foresight or planning ability. People are commodities and not valued. A lot of talk and no action."

Current Employee - Manager says

"I have been working at Fives full-time Cons: Too many layers. Controlling management both in the US and from France. In the US at each business there is a management level who try to run their business at each location but also have to do whatever France decides - even when it is very counter produtive to growing the business and selling the product. Then there is for some businesses a C suite level who are useless, their role is to get on planes to rack up miles and go to meetings that resolve nothing and help with nothing, eat expensive meals and collect big paychecks. Those at the C level show up at things, add NO Value, and no little about the industry or products. Then, they moan about the travel This level does nothing to help the businesses grow. Next there is a puzzling level called "Fives Inc" in the US. They help hire the wrong people for uper management and keep adding C suite level people, they are there for oversight for France, but they DO NOT want truthful feedback if it is in any way evenly mildly negative, even if helpful. And yet another layer are the teams in France. These teams in France love the layers because it abdicates them from any responsibility when business aren't doing well - they blame the layers underneath. All these layers completely Stifle innovation. There is no money left for R&D, or pay raises. The lack of R& D money will kill the companies. France management has no respect for the history of the companies in the U.S.A. and for the people that know the industries and customer bases. If you dare to leave your company, Fives management, at all the levels (local, C, US management and France) will try to trash your name and reputation, trying to find dirt on people that leave. They do this because they know of the strong connections of employees to the customer base, and because Fives management are narcissists - they think they do no wrong. I refuse to participate in this. My moral compass set at a higher level than Fives and I wish my reports the best in their next venture. Please note that the Fives HR and Comm departments went on a campaign to enlist positive reviews (writing their own) on several job sites in order to counter the HONEST reveiws that are negative."

Former Employee - Management says

"I worked at Fives full-time for less than a year Cons: CEO who hired me turned around and quit and I later heard many horror stories about how he handled personnel and customers. This same individual offered to interview me for a position where he was going while he was still on Fives' payroll and told me he didn't know he was leaving when he hired me. At that point in time it dawned on me I had made a huge mistake in joining this company. This left me in a bind, because the picture he painted for career growth was therefore totally uncertain. This division is incredibly disorganized from management to the shop floor. Major quality issues which the staples of management dismiss as "one customer specific" despite having empirical data to the contrary. The facts never seemed to matter because they make up their minds without the data (or even involving you for that matter) and dismiss what you say as non-factual. Not even FEA data seemed to be adequate for them. What amazed me most was watching how they justified their decisions and then turning around and blaming a specific customer or job site for their own product issues. Any suggestion I made was thwarted by senior level management, 2/3 of which had either no engineering and/or industry experience. Fuzzy math at best. Poor treatment of people, condescending attitudes by people who have worked here and nowhere else in any other city and/or any other industry. This place was by far the most disorganized company I have ever worked at in my 30 years in industry. The whole picture sums up to then result in a bunch of people coming to work, and simply putting in their time to collect a paycheck...but nobody is really motivated to get anything done, or do anything extra. It's not a plan for success and not how someone like me, who is driven to excel, wants to work. It should not be tolerated."

Former Employee - Project Management says

"I worked at Fives full-time for more than 5 years Cons: New management team is a step in the wrong direction, June of 2018 to present has been an out of control spiral downward. Bull in a China shop management went out of fashion 20 years ago, people will not put up with this in 2019. Bad reputation in the industry for how employees are treated past and present employees , need to take steps to repair this perception/ reality. Employees on FMLA short term disability released from employment while on leave or shortly after returning to work. highly suspect as the number of people was quite high. Employees approaching milestones for vesting in 401K released days before reaching the milestone. A recipe for how not to treat an employee Customers recognize the management issues and see the high rate of turnover"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at Fives full-time Cons: No. Don't do it. No matter how desperate you are, keep looking. This organization is toxic...extremely bad senior management. HR is a clown show. You'll be stifled by the old school attitude and environment. And you'll be stuck there for a nine hour work day (they conveniently fail to mention this in the interview) with a whopping half hour for lunch (nope...you won't be bonding with your new colleagues over lunch...not enough time to go out...the half hour limit is enforced). That's OK...you'll get to know them when you spend endless hours in pointless non-productive meetings. But hey, you can stay even later to get your actual work done (it's expected). While you're at it, watch your back; if something goes wrong, the finger pointing starts. Here comes the bus! And how about the open floor plan? It's distracting and stressful but as that crack management team knows, if you need to be able to see employees at all times to make sure they're working (hint: teleworking won't be happening). It's not a pretty picture if you're accustomed to professionalism, respect, trust and and flexibility. You can do so look much better."
