    Pros

    Great environment and very helpful employees. Goal oriented and customer service driven. It has been a great experience being a part of such a wonderful team. Highly recommend.

    I can honestly say that there aren't any downsides to this company. Everything that I have experienced this far has been an honor.

    I have been working at Carboline Company full-time

    Pros

    The company is easy to work for, no time clocks and the people are very friendly.

    Cons

    The upper management has little desire to prepare the next generation to take over the company. Only a couple of young ones will be chosen the rest can stay in the same position for 10-20 years.

    Pros

    Carboline has great benefits and there are some wonderful people who work there. There is also flexible work schedules in some departments.

    Cons

    Management does not know what the hell they are doing. Good people are dropping like flies! There is too much change and no one knows who is running the show. Business is down, it's all doom and gloom!

    Advice to Management

    Quit changing things so much and quit losing good people!!!! Also, quit promoting people that don't deserve it or who haven't earned it yet, just because they are young and pretty.

    Pros

    Good RPM benefits, 401k matching, affordable health care, and even pension. Pay is competitive within coatings industry.

    Cons

    Ever changing personal makes executing a strategy next to impossible. HR has no control and the new President who creating a wake of destruction aka "change" with no clear strategy or vision. Beatings will continue until morale improves has become the new mantra.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to stay the course to see how strategic choices will effect top line growth. Invest in the right personal and quit hiring waitresses. Organization is becoming highly disfunctional with operations, sales and R & D becoming extremely volatile forwards one another. Fix your communication issues and you might have a chance to right the ship, stay the course and...

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Carboline Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Small enough to have a personal feel. Great insurance and other benefits.

    Cons

    Not always given clear goals or direction in which business is headed. Management/Sales tend to react to the loudest noise maker in the field, often throwing numerous high priority projects at manufacturing with unrealistic deadlines.

    Pros

    Focus on how people make the difference! Company has great benefits People are treated like people. Leaders have their heads screwed on straight. Lots of people have been at Carboline for a long time, great testimony to the company.

    Cons

    It's the paint business, so your not going to be voted the most interesting person in the room at cocktail parties.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing!
