Very disorganized; little to no communication between management & employees.

Coordinator (Former Employee)
Woodridge, IL

I worked at Wilton Brands

ProsDespite all its shortcomings the company has: a laidback environment, great products, reputable CEO, nice holiday parties, culture of celebration, and tent sale

ConsDifficult for minorities to move up within the company, lots of coworkers waste time standing around gossiping about each other, too many lazy employees, lack of communication by upper management, outdated data system, salaries are not competitive, management lack progressive thinking, generally don't like change, stuck in their old ways, force low-paying entry level employees stay overtime to do other people's jobs... must I go on....

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company is not as progressive as it should be. You should re-evaluate your employees and whether they're bringing Wilton to the next level. When I worked there I saw too many coworkers goof off I wondered why they were even allowed to work there in the first place. Be careful... a lot of them pretend to work hard only when you're around. You should do an overhaul of the company and with more productive people you might end up with a better driven company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Stay Away unless your a woman....

Forecasting (Former Employee)

I worked at Wilton Brands


Pros: Eager to get you in and started. Salary was fair, benefits… Cons: Too much of a "woman's world". In a department of 11, 6 were gone on maternity leave. They don't like outside opinions.… Advice to Senior Management: There are more than one way to do things. Listen to people before… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
