I worked at Carlson Companies

Pros

There is less beurocracy for an enterprise of its size. There is also a somewhat casual and laid back tone.

Cons

lack of strategic direction during tough economic times and there is a lack of transparency with regard to company performance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A clear consistent strategy needs to be communicated down the ranks and work effort needs to be aligned with that across all business units

    Pros

    The organization is passionate about community involvement. Marilyn Carlson does amazing things also to fight trafficing of young girls globally, relaxed culture, hospitality is fun.

    Cons

    No upward mobility, don't stick to one strategy. It is constantly changing every few months, currently only hiring/promoting people that are international
