    I worked at Acme Brick full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful corporate HQ building, strong history and tradition, well known company with strong brand of excellence, and many kind and friendly coworkers across different departments (feels very much like a family).

    Cons

    Only some appreciation for new or innovative thinking; fairly flat organization so there is some freedom in decision making but could be more; some "good ol'boy network" issues that's based too much on relationships vs. performance/results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start thinking about how you are bringing in new talent and allowing them to make their mark on the company and grow it for the future; can't just "do what we've always done" for much longer. Don't retain leaders that don't truly live the values of the organization; they hurt productivity and results.
