Pros

When I started working for Centennial in 2006, the organization had a strong employee centered culture.

Cons

The company was sold to an international concern and you could slowly see the focus shift from striving for quality to improving the bottom line. All conferences and the majority of training were lost and the pressure was on to insure that the forecasts were met at all cost. It went from a company that strove for excellence and customer satisfaction to nothing more than a cash cow to be milked for all it was worth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work to slow the drastic loss of corporate personnel.

    I worked at Centennial Contractors Enterprises full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Had some wonderful co-workers. Had a family atmosphere and was a fun place to work until it was bought by a German corporation.

    Cons

    Employees do not feel as if the company cares about them since it was bought out by German corporation.
    Too much work time and not enough family time.
    No career paths and rarely any raises.
    Feel as if the Germans are milking the company and employees' lives dry and will just eventually toss aside with no concerns.
    Insurance keeps getting worse over time.
    Does no good to express concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really look at what is going on around you with your employees. Are they really happy to be there? Do not hesitate to stand up for your employees. Try to make it a place people want to come to everyday, and try to retain your employees who just cannot seem to leave fast enough.
