    I worked at C. F. Martin & Co. full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very Interesting work with decent pay scales and benefits. Plenty of good coworkers to ride out the day with. Great scent if you are into the way woodworking smells. Opportunity to grow is there for employees who desire more responsibility although it may or may not come with higher pay.

    Cons

    Favoritism and manager ego's can be enough to drive one crazy. Some compensation for higher paid individuals never made sense to me (i.e better match on 401K for those who make more just tilts the scales harder against the lower paid).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your mid level management is listening to their employees and giving them what they need to excel.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at C. F. Martin & Co. in November 2011.

Acoustic guitars by C. F. Martin are so prized by collectors that they are often called the American Stradivarius. (Willie Nelson hid his Martin guitar, named "Trigger," when the IRS seized his property.) The company's limited-edition models can reach $100,000, and limited-edition signature models (with artists from Paul Simon to Beck) earn royalties for charities. C. F.
