Pros

In the Industry Edwards is a Market Leader , Benefits are good , as with anywhere there are quality people working at this Company

Cons

Managment in CC has been around for so many years it is very Political - There are some dishonest Directors that rule the roost and unless there is a change I don't know how the business will survive in this environment. Work life balance is non-existent if you are on vacation it is expected that you will pick up your voicemails , emails and complete reports on demand. This was not the case here many years ago this has become standard practice - Integrity is an issue in this division as well - If you don't get drunk and stay out late partying you will not be seen in a positive light if you are in Sales . In this decade most companys don't stand for this type of behaviour. The THV side of the business is completely different and if you work for them you have great Management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Integrity , honesty, work life balance - all of these should be looked at. See where the turnover is occuring stop listening to excuses and make changes. Learn from the THV group - they have happy employees - Happy employees are great employees (dedication should be valued)
