    Great company!!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Baton Rouge, LA

    Pros-Great company that keeps growing every year
    -Great benefits
    -Like a family, not treated like a number

    Cons-Communication is lacking at times
    -Growing at a faster rate than our staff which results in lack of promotion opportunities

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure to keep contact with every employee as much as you can from the top and bottom. It makes the employees feel better, knowing that the top management cares about them and their service to the company.

    Best place I have ever worked

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe best thing about this company is it's fun, friendly atmosphere. Employees are treated with respect, like family. The company continually seeks opportunities for improvement. There is never a dull moment!

    ConsThe company runs with a very lean staff. Traditionally administrative tasks are handled by managers at all levels. Also, there is little turnover...which can limit promotional opportunities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees...REALLY listen...and endeavor to be more open-minded to hear what is being said.

    OK Job, nothing special

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are good co-workers here. It is easy to get along with them. Flexible and understanding about team goals. Work as a team well.

    ConsOwnership is not in touch with employees at all, there is a tendency to never promote or give raises. They always recruit from the outside. Not a step up the career ladder

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote from within, trust employees more, don't mess with compensation all the time.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
