Leadership cares about the employees. This is obvious in the many employee events and the way Management listens to employees opinions. The decisions aren't always positive, but at least we can voice our concerns.
Lots of overtime which is good for the pocket book but not so good on the work-life balance.
Advice to Management
Spend more time training employees from day 1.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at SAF-HOLLAND.
The interview was with three people. One of the gentlemen came to the front reception area to greet me and we went into a conference room where another person joined us. We started with introductions and moved right into the interview questions. I was asked to tell them about myself and my experience. I walked them through my portfolio pointing out campaigns, branding and how the design was created, concept to completion.
Next the main interviewer gave me the history of the company and his role in it. He talked about taking the marketing group to the next level using the latest technology. He described his ideal team, how they would totally stand with him in various support levels. He was nearly done with his talk when the last person joined our session. He quickly breezed through my portfolio, asking what I programs I used to create the graphics and how much was my own idea and how much was from other sources. He seemed satisfied and left with the gentleman who brought me into the interview room.
The main marketing person gave me an office tour and continued sharing his vision for the marketing group and what he needed from the person they would hire. We ended up in his office where he stressed that he had access to many confidential matters and this hire would be required to keep many conversations with him confidential. He also asked if I would be willing to do things like make copies and put together presentation booklets for his meetings or if I thought that was beneath me.
- I was very surprised when the main marketing person asked me if I was a Christian. 1 Answer
