Small company with great growth opportunity

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Northbrook, IL

ProsFamily run company means senior leadership has a great deal invested in the success of this organization. The company has experienced 3 consecutive record years in terms of financial results through an economic recession. Our senior leaders do a great job of communicating priorities across the organization on a regular basis. Because of the small nature of the company (1800 employees) it feels like a family yet our 16 manufacturing sites globally make the company feel much larger and allows for individual growth.

ConsCan be hesitant to take big risks and may lose out on big pay offs. Slow to change a very encultured workforce.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
