I have been working at The Hillman Group

Pros

Good people - really good people
Sincere and fair in compensation, praise, etc.
Probably the most genuine executive team you'll ever have
Good identification of short term strategies

Cons

Genuine and fair but not adapting with times
Still runs like a small company (good for feel) but in reality is a pretty large co.
dysfunctional flow chart of heirarchy.
Poor executiion of long term strategy because of above. Exec team is not accountable for driving objectives.

This is constructive criticism. I would always say that this is a good company to work for and I have never felt in over a decade that I was not treated fairly or felt disrespected

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Love these guys, but we need to evolve into the large company that we've become.

    I worked at The Hillman Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They are very friendly great opportunities, solid products.

    Cons

    If you sell a new store you have to stay in the position till end of quarter after store is installed to get commission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If someone sells a new store they should get paid regardless if they stay through end of quarter or not in that role.
