    Pros

    Sun is a nice place to work. Everyone is friendly and easy to get along with, including management. Benefits are nice, including a lot of time off, and pay is decent.

    Cons

    The pay isn't terrible but like a lot of other places, it could be better. The insurance is pretty costly. Not a lot of negatives

    Advice to Management

    Management does a pretty good job overall. The seem to be pretty nice to employees. My only advice would be to keep listening to employees.

    Pros

    Small company feel with an outsized business (Household Cleaning) keeps the pace very fast. Limited management layers keeps you connected with leadership. Plenty of opportunity to make a name for yourself.

    Cons

    Historic, competitive market is very demanding on your time. Lots of pressure to move fast which forces decisions that can be reactionary.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to think lean and mean and with resources that are absolutely essential to the goal.
