    Pros

    + Great people to work with.
    + Adapatable and flexible to individual employee needs.
    + Most management get the big picture and are looking to make things better in their jobs, the business, employee's lives.
    + Pay and benefits are competitive.
    + H.R. team is great at H.Q. and does a lot for the employees.

    Cons

    + Some of the management (middle management to be specific) is CLUELESS to their own responsibilities but maintain jobs for no apparent reason. Why are they still here? Being here 20 years is not an answer if a replacement hire can walk in and due a better job at a lower wage in short order. Cut ties and move on so we can make this company go in a positive direction!
    + Little growth as a company
    + Little growth for an employee (outside of a few cases here or there) in career advancement. Great for stepping up and doing more due to the size of the company, but does not necessarily
    reflect a promotion or pay increase in your future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More consistent approach and better communication from department to department. Business units / departments are too independent from one another for a company of this size.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Katun.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with two managers, HR, and an interview with an executive which never happened. First was the two managers, the executive never showed up for part two so HR filled in for the second part and the executive never showed up.
