    I worked at Carhartt full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits. PTO is higher then average. Bonus at end of year. Work Life balance in IT is VERY good. Work from home available. Able to work with up and coming technologies. Training available for your job.

    Cons

    Job advancement. Career path is not laid out to you, or even really known by managers. Salary is below normal for the job market. Some IT managers seem to take care of their people while others do not. Favorites seem to get preferential treatment. Promotions to people of less than a year for ambiguous reasons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management seems to know what it is doing. For the most part Carhartt is very employee focused. Keep up the good work, don't forget about the people that make you, the management, look good.

    (Or in Carhartt lingo:) I score you at a 1.9. I see you are trying, but if you keep this up we may need to place you on a PIP.

    Pros

    The people make the company. Carhartt's values are evident in every employee. Trust, communication, honesty, and eagerness to do the right thing is present everywhere.

    Cons

    The amount of travel required by my job is significant (75%+).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Performance recognition programs should be consistent in all facilities. It would be a great benefit to have sick time and vacation time accrued separately.

    Pros

    if you are contractor you have many luxury benefits.

    Cons

    Very poor management in the Information Services department. The executive management should investigate the performances of every manager and recently many have left the company due to lack of proper recognition. I

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please recognize your hard working employees. For Carhartt to continue as a great company, needs solid leaders just like other departments. There are Big flaws in the IS department.

    I worked at Carhartt as a contractor

    Pros

    The benefits that permanent employees are offered are excellent; the product discounts are great, office spaces are nice; the employees are friendly.
    You can be very proud of the products that are sold.

    Cons

    They do not seem open to new ideas; alot of favoritism. The location is ok, "old boy network" comes to mind....
    Surprised to find out that many of the products are no longer being manufactured in the USA
