Pros

Friendly people create a caring, family oriented atmosphere. Fun extra events. Training reimbursement and onsight training. Fair pay. Nice facilities - well maintained. Many departments to move to if you don't like current position.

Cons

Unprofessional Executives, arbitrary decisions, outsourcing, favortism, nepotism. For a company that is about benefits, theirs are fairly low. Owners are very nice, but they have trusted the wrong executives. Should trust employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Owners should listen to employees who have been there a long time - many 10+ years. They tend to bring in strangers and let them spend a boat load of the company's money, and have nothing profitable to show for it. Stop outsourcing out of the US.

    Pros

    “The Founders and most of the employees were personable. The Founders offer monthly events to all employees in the company. They offer bonuses, this is always good.”

    Cons

    “The Founders were not in touch with daily activities surrounding their employees that have made their company what it is today. The Founders have allowed individuals into management positions that have self fulfilling agendas and care nothing for the individuals they are to "manage." How can they manage, they have no management skills themselves. Favoritism runs rampit.
    The monthy outings each year tend to be the same, stail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep closer eyes on individuals looking to climb the executive ladder. Do not be so inclined to offer promotions when an individual has not proven their skills in all areas. Management skills as well and promoting growth for the company.
