I worked at Carlson Companies full-time (more than an year)

Pros

It was a fun company to work for. Our department worked well as a team and independently as needed. Upper management was hands on and worked well with the all reports.

Cons

My position was newly created when I started and there wasn't much work at first.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management in my department was amazing. He took the time to talk to his reports daily and ask for feedback.

    I worked at Carlson Companies as an intern

    Pros

    The company as a whole has a strong forward outlook when making business decisions. They are able and willing to invest in their employees. There are many people that have been with the company for a long time which builds a unique community.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of room for vertical growth which makes it hard to get in the company and move into higher roles. They make up for this with horizontal growth and opportunities to work with other departments and Business Units.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to reward tenure and strong ethics since this is what draws many people to the organization.

    I have been working at Carlson Companies full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for, they have a lot of opportunities for growth and learning.

    Cons

    Based on everything I have seen, they are usually 10% or 20% below market in compensation, especially on their long term employees. Then they are surprised when someone leaves . . .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You get what you pay for, the good people will go to where the money is!
