A former employee mentioned, "Egotistical management gone wild at C. F. Martin & Co, production workers advice and experience thrown by the wayside. Overall severe lack of real craftsmanship knowledge or expertise by management. Office workers and salary employees favored over production and hourly employees."

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"constant rumors and gossip, departmental rivalry, lots of time spent in mandatory meetings, nepotism, favoritism, sexism, lack of diversity, overall negative attitude of most coworkers - most are happy being unhappy"
Former Employee - Labor says"~Expect a lot of politics ~Expect a lot of grey area in terms of cross training ~Expect favoritism ~Some of the managers are pretty disrespectful in front of employees talking about other employees ~Overall lack of respect ~Unfortunately quantity seems to be a priority over quality"
Former Employee - Production Worker says"So easy that it's mind numbingly boring doing the same task over and over. This is a factory after all. Management does not know how to manage- at all. More concerned with numbers than anything else. Favoritism abounds here. If you do not suck up you will go nowhere. If you are too good at your job, you will go nowhere. If you complain at all, you will go nowhere. If you tell management how to improve something, you will be looked down upon. Basically, keep your mouth shut, smile, shake your head, and tell the managers how awesome they are and you will be fine here."
