    I have been working at Freeman full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are slightly above standard,

    Cons

    No room for advancements, spread thin so expect to work on-demand over time, little to no equipment so expect to jerry-rig all sorts of things, and the biggest issue of all... no formal training! its the blind leading the blind from bottom to top!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many to list.. for starters, try letting exployees send in anonymous advices / comments / concerns and start with that for a small glimpse on issues.

    I have been working at Freeman full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The Freeman family has high integrity and ethics. The company always strives to maintain a caring and inclusive culture. Employees work hard, but are rewarded well. Benefits are great, including generous PTO, health, dental, vision, life, disability, 401k and ESOP for full-time staff (to mention only a few).

    Cons

    There are always cons if you look hard enough at any organization; however, the pros far outweigh them!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to the high ethical standards that have made our company great. Reward those who honor the strong heritage we enjoy.

    Pros

    Training is amazing. Family owned by people who really care - they are the salt of the earth!

    Cons

    None - wouldn't trade it for a second.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. The time you spend listening to employees is incredible the money and resources you spend trying to find the "pain points" is incredible. You truly care - don't stop.

    Pros

    Good work, Good people.
    If you can get on the inside, there is a chance to move up. Unfortunatly, someone needs to leave above you before that happens. Very little cross movement between the companies.

    Cons

    Management is an old boy network. No longer a family business. Political manuevering is the norm. It's more about who you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate fairly, open upward movement,

    I worked at Freeman full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the business users and my colleagues.

    Cons

    Upper management changes resulted in a shift in direction, and was no longer an environment I felt I belonged in. Focus was given to new technologies and implementing direction away from previous regime. Promotion opportunities were limited. Bonus directed to those more visible to C-level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It may be "just a title" to you, but it matters to those of us that don't have the title and the bonus structure that goes with it.
