Tread Carefully

Sales (Former Employee)

I worked at Carlton-Bates full-time for more than 5 years

ProsIf you're one of the chosen few, you can practically get away with murder, and your job is secure.

ConsDon't expect to get ahead if you aren't close personal friends with the managers. Extreme favoritism and nepotism all over the place. Those who cut corners get ahead, and those who try to do an honest job get steamrolled.

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize the value of your loyal employees who put up with your endless changes and requirements.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Nice place to work if you don't want to go anywhere

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at Carlton-Bates


Pros: Great place to work if you don't want to grow/develop in anything other than Sales/Distribution Solid positioned for growth. Margins running in… Cons: If you are not a Sales person then your career path is a true DEAD END. Career advancement is not about the blood, sweat,… Advice to Senior Management: Communicate changes; when people are reassigned or let go or leave the only way someone figures it out is via a bounced email. Historically… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
