    Great Work Culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere is a lot of room for personal growth. Everyone in the company is very nice and welcoming, and makes it easy to feel comfortable and right at home.

    ConsThe number of locations available to work at are limited, and aren't in any urban areas. You might have to make quite the commute to get to work.

    Best choice I've made

    Finance Controller (Current Employee)
    Columbus, IN

    ProsSenior Leadership is clear on mission, values and long term goals. Ability to move around frequently within or across functions. Stock performs well so 401k is good. We are a great corporate citizen and live out our values

    ConsWork life isn't always great. Base salary is lower than industry. HR processes are long and cumbersome

    ok

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Columbus, IN

    Proscompensation
    As my first job out of college, I learned first hand how not to handle situations from my mangers (three in three years) mistakes.

    ConsMicro managed
    Management looking out or one's self
    Promises not fulfilled
    A lot of my co-workers were put in situations they could not succeed
    Management pushes responsibility for issues created by management onto direct reports (never the mangers fault)

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower employees. Stop using them as scapegoats for your terrible business decisions. There a lot of solid young talent whose growth and abilities are being squandered by mangers.

    Also, I would like to thank them. My experiences have given me a leg up as I interview for positions outside the company. I have a lot of good situational based interview answers from my current stint.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Company!

    Materials Planner (Current Employee)
    Memphis, TN

    ProsThe benefits are great. The variable comp is awesome. It provides a great work life balance.

    ConsIts difficult to move up unless you network continuously. Most jobs listed in the internal center are already filled before they are posted.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
