-interesting business
-privately owned and the management knows their business and what they want to do
-market leader
-management listens to employees and lets them get the job done

Cons

    Pros

    As the title says, SanMar cares. I mean truly cares. As you read past and present employee's criticisms and praise, I encourage you to keep in mind; every employee's experience at any company is influenced by a bazillion^2 different factors. While I do feel sympathy for those in the IT department that have become disillusioned and even share some of their frustrations, my 5 years at SanMar were amazing. SanMar enabled me to progress from a Black-box software tester to Automation Engineer to Software Developer, to being ready to take the start-up jump. If you are internally drivin, the sky is the limit at SanMar.

    Cons

    1. SanMar is so good at what they do, customers have to actually apply to give them money. While that is obviously a good thing, it leads to a ton of downstream inefficiency.

    Advice to Management

    I feel the new management is doing everything they can with what they have. They are implementing policies and taking action to help steer the ship in the right direction. My only advice would be to invest more in mobile ASAP.
