Pros

Profit Sharing has been great over the years. Company has a good since of direction with go to market plans. Many good individuals to work with throughout the organization.

Cons

Hard to advance in career within the company. Tender does not matter any longer within the company; as it did 10 years ago. Hiring more outside of the organization instead of promoting within.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pormote within more.

    Pros

    Benefits, cafeteria. People with kids can come in late/leave early.

    Cons

    Management does not mentor nor support team members. It's all for one and one for all. Disorganized work flow, little teamwork and too many hands in the pot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Marketing management needs a complete overhaul. The lack of a line of sight to this grave issue is the reason why I give the CEO a poor rating.

    Pros

    good benefits, salary ok , profit sharing

    Cons

    Supervisors are in only for what they can get for themselves, they don't care about anyone else. They tend to favor those who had been there longer. New ideas are only heard if it's the people they like. Too much favoritism. Zero promotion. I don't recommend this company unless you are looking for another paycheck. ah, there is no flexibility for life/work either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many layers of managment are useless and give zero visibility to the valuable people that does the work. Then you wonder why ratings are low at this location. Employees have low morale due to zero advancement
