    Pros

    Niagara is a fast paced company that moves quickly and is growing at a rapid pace (30+% a year for the past decade.) There are lots of opportunities for internal promotions and professional development. Managers expect a lot out of their employees. The company is 100% family owned and the owners are still involved in the business and there is a family culture, even though the business has grown dramatically. There are lots of training opportunities and rotational programs for employee development.

    Cons

    - The corporate office is crowded, with parking becoming a big problem.
    - Benefits could be better
    - The culture is not for everyone. People coming from larger companies tend to have a hard time adapting to the pace.
    - Many departments are under staffed leading to resource constraints

    Pros

    Niagara is a great place to work if you are hard working, adaptable, and looking to grow your career. Employees are willing to roll up their sleeves to get the job done, regardless of their title. This motivates me to pitch in and help out when needed which creates a very team oriented work environment.

    Cons

    Niagara can improve on methods of communication. Sometimes changes happen within the organization and most employees are unaware.

    Pros

    The rate of growth creates opportunities everywhere to advance your career. The company invests in the latest & greatest technologies, and is kicking butt. Upper management have all earned my respect, and I'm excited to follow their lead as the company continues to grow. I look forward to hearing Mr. P speak during the annual updates and am proud to contribute to what he started over 50yrs ago. Happy to be on Team Niagara!

    Cons

    While the company is improving in this area, there is so much growth that it's hard to put effective structure in place for some things that really need them. It's a fast-paced and "get it done" environment that not everyone is successful in. It can be a bit competitive, but I think that just the right amount of that can be a good thing. Not a good fit for people who aren't willing to work long hours or might have come from a previous employer that had a more generous work/life balance culture. It is a "young" company, full of people dedicated to their job and willing to put a lot of hours in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay courageous and continue the family-based culture that we have today. It'd be cool if we could bring our dogs to work too...and wear shorts on Fridays.

    Pros

    The office culture here is amazing and the people are as well. This is a fast paced company who look for the best. They look for active people who are ready to excel and advance in their careers. This is not the place for those who are content to just sit around at their desks all day. The opportunities are there for those who want them.

    Cons

    There's a lack of communication between upper management and their teams, but that's to be somewhat expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to sit down with your employees to discuss projects and career advancement.

    Pros

    Niagara Bottling, LLC is a small yet rapidly growing company in the bottled beverage industry. The job growth opportunity is much larger than most companies. I highly recommend starting out your career with them.

    Cons

    The only downside to this company is the lack of communication between upper management and lower level employees. It is nearly impossible to get any face time with executives.
