    Pros

    Outstanding benefits package and close-knit relationships with co-workers. Many of the senior staff has been with the company for 10+ years, which results in a family-type atmosphere.

    Cons

    Sometime there is a lack of direction from upper management on what is a priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more forthcoming and expect the same level of excellence from yourself that you demand from subordinates

    Pros

    Brand recognition - Carlson has built a fantastic brand with worlwide recognition. UNfortunately, poor leadership has tarnished that brand and left many of the operating units in disarray. Hopefully the company will learn from the mistakes it made and the lack of succession planning so that it can make a strong come back down the road.

    Cons

    poor leadership, lack of succession plan

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
