    Pros

    Several very talented designers and carpenters on-staff at Case, they have a strong reputation in the Carmel area, Design-Build is a growing industry, one worth learning about from the inside-out.

    Cons

    - Irrational owner
    - Owner does not understand the design process and his expectations are constantly changing
    - High rate of turnover
    - Expectations of work output vary by employee, and owner's mood
    - Medical benefits have an extremely high deductible
    - No matching 401K plan
    - Only 5 vacation days per year, unless an employee has been with the company TEN years
    - Performance and salary reviews are irregular, to say the least

    Pros

    Case has many opportunities and resources available.

    Cons

    There is sometimes a disconnect between upper management's ideas and ideals and its implementation in the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check to make sure that mid-management follows upper managements positions.

    Good Intentions, But Stuck in a Rut

    I worked at Case Design/Remodeling

    Pros

    Some really great people work there. They are leaders in their industry. There is no snobbery or pretentiousness, it's a very honest and results-driven environment. They value hard work. They value and reward good employees. They "try harder". It's very different if your in the field vs in the office - if you're in the field, you'd be hard pressed to find a better opportunity with more steady work, if you're in the office, prepared to be taken back 10 years in how you do business.

    Cons

    Their culture is very inbred. Senior management have spent the majority of their careers there, and can have a very closed view of how to run a business, despite being experienced in their industry. They move people up the ladder for tenure and hard work, but that sometimes results in putting people in positions of power when they really don't have the necessary leadership ability. Company is overly focused on sales and salespeople (if you're not in sales, you don't matter). And don't get on the wrong side of those with influence, or you could find yourself quickly out of a job. There is a tendency to work hard, not smart.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some high level executives from larger companies (not smaller) in different (but perhaps somewhat correlated) industries and get a fresh perspective. Invest in more technology that benefits employees in their everyday work (mobile devices, better computers, better office equipment, and up to date software) and makes their day better, rather than pouring money into massive systems that never improve. Your proprietary technology is not differentiating you, fix it (in baby steps).
