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

    Pros

    A couple of good hard working people.

    Cons

    No growth. Scared of changes. Says they are working on changes but has the same lazy people leading the way. Put blames on those who actually likes to work and let's the lazy people slack off. Hires people based on emotions rather then how they work. A great place to get your lazy friend a job if you suck up to your boss enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up your eyes and fire the lazy people or you will never change in a good way.

    Pros

    Great products across a breadth of industries providing sales stability. Employees dedicated to doing the right things.

    Cons

    Poor leadership from the top. Leadership from the top is emotion based which leads to the wrong approach and decisions made for the wrong reasons. Passive aggressive management behavior from the top. Lack of respect from the top down and the bottom up creating a hostile and stressful work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a collaborative approach to leading and setting the direction of the organization. You had a dedicated and talented employee / management base that were driven out of the organization based on approach, lack of respect and an inability to do what was right for the company.

    Pros

    Colder is a great small company to start out at to get your feet wet with your career, and a good place to go in the middle of your career to further hone your skills. They value their people and are provide great products to their customers. They don't hesitate to provide you with anything you need to do your job.

    Cons

    The bottom line of sales and marketing often clouded the common sense of management. Foolish and short-sighted decisions regarding reinvestment in the company, particularly in technology, came back to bite them more than once. There is also a lack of accountability within the company, people that need their hands slapped are often given a free pass.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. You said you would, you acted as if you were, then you went off and made the wrong decisions. If you actually did listen you wouldn't have constantly been wasting the company's time and money. You need to crack down on people who are detrimental to the company's business, policies and workplace environment. Many issues about employees abusing company assets and performing poorly were brought the attention of management during my time there and absolutely nothing was done about it. These people continue to work there and perform the same, over a year later.
