    Pros

    Great Family oriented work environment. Training department is excellent and truly sets you up for success in all areas of work. Environment is team and individual focused and allows you to be independent but also bond and achieve team successes. Achievements are recognized and the company does an excellent job at recognizing employee achievements both inside and outside of the office.

    Cons

    The job can be challenging for the first 2 years of employment because of the medical terminology, sales cycle, and building a pipeline but training and leadership does an excellent job at ensuring everyone has the tools needed for success.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay focused on the people within the organization it does not go unnoticed. We appreciate it!

    Pros

    C&A Industries is a great place to work! It provides an excellent work life balance and truly invests in its people! There are endless advanced training opportunities to grow personally and professionally and the support system is excellent. The staffing industry as a whole is very rewarding b/c your product is a person. There is no better feeling than helping a candidate and client find the right match! Nobody does it better than C&A Industries and Aureus Medical Group!

    Cons

    C&A Industries has been in the market for 45 years, so it has a great reputation both locally and nationally. Continue to focus on searching for high quality people and developing those people and the sky is the limit!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the development of people! It has always been a strength of C&A and will continue to be important in a highly competitive industry.

    Pros

    Open to feedback, opportunities to grow, comprehensive training, community involvement, positive workplace environment, encourage vacations/time off, monthly incentives, etc...

    Cons

    Sales based-positions require continuous production and consistent efforts. Because you always have something to do, it makes it hard to take time off without falling behind.

    Advice to Management

    I have had 3 managers while working at C&A and love 2 out of the three. Overall, I have had a positive experience with managers and have always felt comfortable giving them feedback.

    Pros

    Team atmosphere with Positive and Supportive Culture! C&A takes the time to invest in their people, to provide them with the training and leadership to help them reach their career goals!

    Cons

    None. Any opportunities to improve that are voiced are heard. The CEO even does scheduled lunches with groups of his employees each week to gather their feedback on how things are going on their teams.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! I feel so blessed to work for such an amazing company who continues to believe and invest in me!

    Both internally and externally, the company is extremely competitive which can be a good or bad thing.

    Pros

    Friendly environment, daily recognition for your successes, nice people, nice facilities and work area

    Cons

    Too competitive, they don't hire the most intelligent people, repetitive work, little growth, some members are hard to work with, there are definitely management favorites, have to be in by 7:30am.

    Pros

    C&A provides excellent industry training that can be transferred to any sales, service or recruiting role. The service quality is usually very good. They have a beautiful facility from which to work.

    Cons

    The company leaders do not live by the values they present. Leaders do not value employee feedback unless it's completely positive. Employees who speak up because they believe it's the right thing to do, even though it may be unpopular, are punished and/or ostracized. Leaders preach accountability and responsibility but are quick to play the blame game. Inappropriate relations and behaviors run rampant throughout the organization. Unfortunately, people who choose to leave, even when handled professionally, have their reputations soiled once they are gone. I would never recommend this company as a place to work.

    Advice to Management

    If you've been receiving negative feedback about a leader or leaders year after year after year, it may be time to re-evaluate whether or not you have the right people in the right roles regardless of whether they are actually family or are considered family. There's much more to great leadership than tenure and loyalty.

    Pros

    -Training program is second to none! The training department is, without question, the greatest strength of the company - specifically the Director and Trainer.
    -Development of talent is a priority.
    -OK base, but it's really more like a draw.
    -Specialized divisions usually focus well on niches.
    -Solid company.
    -Great family engagement activities all year long.

    Cons

    -Way too much micromanagement. It felt like Office Space - "You have 8 bosses?"..."Eight!" (Actually only have 4...)
    -Each one of those bosses tells you different things matter most - one says effort, another says production; this one says phone time, and this one says call volume; one boss is never there; and the others go back and forth between saying you need to have longer conversations and shorter ones.
    -Senior and Middle Management have favorites and practically flaunt it.
    -If you aren't making the company at least $80k above your salary a year you're gone.
    -Bonus compensation/ commission structure is a convoluted mess.
    -Insurance is terrible - the worst. Cost is average, but it covers the bare minimum.

    Advice to Management

    Get some idea of a cohesive message on what it means to be successful, and what needs to be done to succeed, or at least keep your job. I have had absolutely awesome co-workers who got fired even though they were successful, worked hard all day and were team players. And others that text and facebook all day and still keep their jobs.
