    Decent place, but I felt like I was in high school again.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) El Paso, TX

    ProsVery nice facility. Great cafeteria.

    ConsOffice gossip and politics made me feel like I was in high school again. There was a lot of back-biting, gossip, and just overall kid stuff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote more from within, and provide more training to the office staff. While I was there, I felt stifled and I didn't feel like I could grow within the company. Also, pay more competitive salaries. The job I took right after working here paid twice as much, so I felt like I was severely underpaid while here.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ConsWorking with another companies brand through licence is not easy at all.

    Could be so much more, a company you want to get behind but can't"

    Engineering (Former Employee) El Paso, TX

    ProsPeople: caring people, hard workers, taking care of each other. Company used to celebrate so much more with the employees at holidays, but that has fallen off.

    ConsNeed logistics leadership. Can't hire someone who says they know what they are doing, need a strategic thinker with innovation as a key part of their mindset. No strategy, just get it shipped no matter what! Learn how to manage inventory

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring in a VP that is innovative to take on logistics. The problem is not the product, it's getting that product to the customer. Also, get back to your classic holiday parties, that's one of your biggest perks!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
