I enjoyed the time that I worked at Solo, even though they were going through a reorganization at the time.

Credit and Dispute Resolution (Former Employee) Lincolnshire, IL

ProsSolo Cup offered a more than competitive salary. The first three months that I was there were rather hectic, but enjoyable, as they were trying to do an internal reorganization. When that didn't work, they brought in outside help, and everything changed...

ConsDuring the "reorganization", management was poor at best. The actual Credit Manager was not allowed to do her job, and was eventually replaced by an outside person, trained in reorganizations - not good for morale, or workflow.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the "little guy" - sometimes they have much more insight than management does.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
