I have been working at Equity Packaging

Pros

It's a family owned business. They are evolving into something larger and the management shares it's vision, pro's, con's, and everything else with all employees. Employees would be considered on-site contractors at most of their customer sites, but they have a full benefits package and better job stability than Corporate America. Credo is admirable and can be accomplished. They haven't had a major lay-off in 20 years that they've been in business - even in the most recent recession, they're still hiring. Their in the packaging industry - and their the largest player with very limited competition - good niche market for a company like this one.

Cons

At the end of the day, you are still considered a Consultant or Contractor at the Customer site. This can sometimes end up causing feelings of "disconnect" because you may be the main driving force behind a major project, but are not allowed to receive the same recognition from the Customer as other full-time employees of the Customer. It can be disappointing sometimes, but the higher pay and informal recognition - plus the fact that the company recognizes you at the annual corporate meeting, makes up for it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Come up with a better way to define what is a "Equity Employee." Don't use the word, "contractor" because that's not really what we are...we're somewhere in between a "contractor" and a "full-time employee." Also, website needs to be revamped. We know it is supposed to happen this year, but the sooner the better! You need to showcase the impressive list of Customers and the Employees too.
