Pros

Smart co-workers; opportunity to learn diverse areas of business; high expectations for quality outcomes; fun incentive program; nice annual profit sharing for employees; salaries are above average; quality products you can be proud of; often promote from within

Cons

Upper management tends to be a clique (if you are not a favored one, don't expect to go too far); a lot of micro-managing becomes demoralizing over time; long-term contribution & loyalty means very little here; communication is poor; environment is extremely stressful most of the time

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Say what you mean and mean what you say - communicate respect. Be honest and ethical in dealing with your employees.

    Pros

    Super casual work environment…keeps the stuffiness out of the work place.

    Cons

    Sometimes you can’t tell who is who….even the Manager’s are dressed casually!
    Advice to Senior Management
    Keep it light is cool, but sometimes, being too light can hurt ya. Be careful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    This company is family friendly & lacks bureaucracy, which is refreshing. Because if this, management can make decisions & create business directives quickly… it’s easy to get things done. Because it is family owned, the owners are very involved in the day in day out business. They are approachable & always listen & respond to their employees. Solid benefits with a generous bonus program. Lot’s of employee appreciate activities/events. Great product, it’s a company you can be proud to work at.

    Cons

    This company is not a one size fits all organization. They can be intense. Which is a "pro" for me, but it would be the wrong choice for anyone that is looking to do just enough to get by... There's no "flying under the radar" here. Management is very involved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The days are busy, and everyone is scurrying around trying to get their work done. Make sure to keep having fun throughout the craziness.
