I worked at NELSON

Pros

Decent insurance and other benefits.
Good co-workers; an image of hardworking, warm hearted factory workers working for mean, egoistic, factory owners.

Cons

Unprofessional organization, poor management, no respect for design, draining energy, no promotions (unless if you are friend with upper management)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire a professional workplace consultant to improve corporate culture.

    I worked at NELSON full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, a fun team generally. Ozzie was great at staying in touch with the staff. A tough job considering the size of the company. They seem to have stabilized in recent years.

    Cons

    A lot of change in the last 5 years. Many acquisitions causes shifts in leadership and an ever evolving peer group. Can be a little old fashioned, but its clientele are conservative so not so much a judgement but the reality of their business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a better brand team. The Nelson brand doesn't represent some of the younger, more dynamic talent it is so proud of. They are leaving because of it.

    I have been working at NELSON full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The firm offers a flexible work schedule which helps with work/life balance. There is a good mix of local work and national accounts that provide a variety of work experience. Some recent changes in leadership show promise for the future. The new compensation plan is a great way for employees to understand how their work contributes directly to the company's success and therefore to their ability to receive raises and bonuses more than once a year. The sharing of staff between offices helps to balance the workload. My manager listens when I make requests relating to my career goals.

    Cons

    The benefits package needs a total overhaul. The new compensation plan is untried and has some details that need to be worked out. The firm's structure doesn't align with other large firms so navigating your path can be confusing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to exit interviews and make changes if necessary. Make note of the other reviews shown on this site and see what changes can be made.
