    This is an exciting place to be. The company cares about its employees and your growth is only limited by you.

    I have been working at Cottingham & Butler full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent senior management staff and employees. Leadership cares about employees and also about clients. Strong customer service/ sales focus throughout the company.

    Cons

    It definitely isn't for everyone. The company operates at a fast pace and employees are frequently busy. You have to be self-motivated and driven to continue to grow within the company.

    I worked at Cottingham & Butler full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Some leadership members are exceptional. Sales team is amazing, great products & service offered.

    Cons

    The Sales team is wonderful.
    Other divisions, however, have people in management that are beyond unprofessional. I had to operate in a hostile environment created by my supervisor. I was told to quit numerous times because and I quote "I don't like you". I was afraid to go to work, so I did leave the company. It was an HR nightmare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the managers that are a liability to the organization.

    I worked at Cottingham & Butler full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Hour long lunch breaks and no overtime were the best perks the company offered.

    Cons

    Least diverse company I have ever worked for. It has a very 50s feel in the office. The male employees have unprofessional language not only at their desks, but also while leading meetings. I heard more about sports and how "hot" the newest female in the department was, than actual work related conversation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforce all members to act processional, including yourselves.

    Pros

    Challenging and results driven. It allows you to travel and work with a variety of different people. It will show you how resilient you really are.

    Cons

    The position requires you to start out on Dubuque iowa, which isn't the most appealing place for younger employees. There is a lot of protection of prospects and clients.
