    Above average place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsVery competitive salary and benefits. Working conditions excellent. Communication from upper management is frequent and open. Management tries hard to be employee friendly. Individual opinion is valued and initiative is rewarded. In general, this is a decent place to work.

    ConsPoor career advancement opportunities. Promotion from within at the manager through VP level is very infrequent. Management initiatives are frequently short-lived flavors of the day. Relatively stressful day to day focus on sales and profits...but where is that different?

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on delivering big picture priorities. Eliminate the background clutter of time wasting, non-productive initiatives.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Best Move I Made

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany is small enough to stand out and see results. It's large enough to provide a good wage and benefits. Senior management does listen.

    ConsOccasionally, management gets stuck in a rut and needs to move out of the status quo.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great mid-sized company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsStrong benefit package, bonus. Decent salary. The marketing team is smart, and filled with people from larger CPGs who are tired of the dog & pony that often comes with being at a typical CPG.
    There are days where you will work hard, but overall good work/life balance.
    It's a quirky litte company, but fun.
    Company is trying to raise the bar on talent at the company, which is great. Often hard to get talented people at smaller companies like ACH.

    ConsNo upward mobility within marketing. Noticed that most of the marketers from the outside who are content land in brand manager roles, and are generally happy staying there. However, ambitious associate brand managers often get frustrated with the lack of opportunity for promotion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate opportunities for advancement
    Keep striving for world-class talent

    Brand Manager

    Brand Manager (Current Employee) Oakbrook Terrace, IL

    ProsCompany gives you the opportunity to have autonomy and do what you believe is best for your business. Because the company hasn't been a long for very long, you have the opportunity to come in and really shine, because it hasn't all been done already.

    ConsUnlike major CPG companies, there aren't as many opportunities for advancement. However, those people that deliver great accomplishments do get noticed and can have a lot of fun in the process.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to celebrate successes. People need to hear that their work is valued and appreciated from time to time.

    Great place to have a career!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Oakbrook Terrace, IL

    ProsA mid sized company, the organization will allow you to make an impact at most levels.

    There are numerous opportunities for career advancement at the lower level provided you want to develop a depth of knowledge is one core business.

    Work life balance is very good among all teams. There is a work hard attitude here but you are also allowed to have a robust family life.

    ConsThe company is currently in transition and their is a lot of uncertainty as to where we will ultimate drive the business.

    The organization is relatively flat for mid and upper management. There is not a great deal of opportunity for advancement.,

    Good Opportunity

    Pricing Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsInternal opportunity allays available. The company helps with training and empowerment. Management is responsive and sensitive to demands of employees. Overall good place.

    ConsCompensation might be considered lower than what would be expected from a comparable company in the same market and geographic area.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to get more involved in understanding what employees are doing and comunicate more often and on a consistent basis with all.
