I worked at Topco Associates full-time for more than a year

ProsStable company in a successful company built on a good business model.

ConsI worked for a weak Supervisor that did not represent the complete truth. He does not represent the company in a fashion that it deserves. He did several unethical actions of which have not been disclosed. I am not a litigious person nor do I want to cause any additional concerns but there should be a closer look at this VP.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf desired Randy Skoda could contact me directly. He is a professional highly qualified individual and was a pleasure to work with.

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

Great Learning experience. Great place to begin a career and, take knowledge to other companies.

I worked at Topco Associates

ProsProvide tools needed to advance in your career. I started in the treasury department in 2008, with very little experience. I ended in the procurement department in 2010.

Very family orientated. For example; children of co-workers allowed to trick-or-treat at the office. My kids received more candy at the office, than they ever did going door-to-door. Also, when I got married, they gave me a bridal shower.

ConsUnfortunately, company was going through a re-constructing. Many employees forced to retire(those who have been with the company 10 + years). Company hired a lot of newer people to do the work for less money. Also, company consolidated positions. Thus, what was once done by two to three people, now being forced to be done by one.

Advice: Learn as much as you can as fast as you can. Take knowledge to another company.

Advice to Senior ManagementWiden the channels of communication with your subordinates. The is why the treasury department ran so smoothly.

A New Company!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Skokie, IL

I have been working at Topco Associates

ProsGrowing business - 10 years in a row
Changing environment - new entrepreneurial feel to the business
New leadership team - better directors through CEO in last 2 years
Great long term benefits - pension/401k
Nearly recession proof business
Did I mention new leadership? - great news
Painful CEO is gone!

ConsOnly fair salary levels
Mediocre raises - barely meet inflation
Horrible building - maybe new addition coming soon
Antiquated IT systems and policies

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep pressing forward with the change that is starting. Don't let the long timers hold you back, move the business forward. Hurry the IT changes - they will make everyone's job better. Don't build, move instead.
