Great company, however, lower compensation than industry standard

Senior Purchasing Analyst (Former Employee)
Lakeland, FL

ProsAlways profitable, employee stock ownership program, job security

ConsCorporate positions require long work hours; salaried pay structure for most includes a "bonus" paid in December which is essentially a pro-rated 13th month's pay (i.e., a $60k a year salary is $4615/month for Jan-Dec with a "bonus" of $4615 paid in December if associate remains employeed through year end). The strategy allows the company to retain cash and employee loyalty. Culture is unique - at times cultish. Must be born and bred within the company to move up.

Advice to Senior ManagementSalaries are not competitive when compared to industry standards

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
