    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    The best reason was my boss, the senior VP of marketing. He was always open to new marketing ideas, gave kudos for good performance, and encouraged feed-back.

    Cons

    We created and executed the marketing for ten regional office nationwide and sometimes it was difficult to get everybody on board at the same time.

    Advice to Management

    Always be open to innovative ideas and give plenty of praise.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Carl Walker, Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility was great. Was allowed and encouraged to do additional training. Local leadership was mostly fair.

    Cons

    Top heavy - too much upper managment No raises (actually had decrease in pay) Many layoffs - less people to do the same amount of work Some blatant sexism from the corporate office

    Focus on your employees. A little encouragement and appreciation goes a long way.

    The work is interesting. I have had the benefit of working on some really interesting and difficult projects.

    Cons

    No raises since 2008 and they no longer match 401k.

    It would be helpful to try and get involved with other types of structures to stay busy during periods were we don't have as many parking garage projects.

    Pros

    Smaller company Specialty niche Friendly employees Very good in their field Encourage professional development Family focused Flex time offered Opportunity to travel with some positions

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for advancement/slow process Job perks taken away No 401K matching No bonuses for past year No preformance raises for past year

    Advice to Management

    Many of the issues facing the company are due to tough economic times. Despite these issues, and forced lay-offs, remaining employees should be given some incentive to remain with the company.
