    Pros

    If you do your job well even if you got help to get you started to understand- you'll be fine. Good benefits, good pay, most good managers at any level, coworkers are easy to deal with mostly.

    Cons

    Some people don't like to "really" help if at all. And if so will find a way to shove it in your face. Or I've seen some take credit for others work and enter in the data base then it go to them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a good eye on those false reporting people.

    Reputation for not caring for employees. However, there are many long tenures employees in the company with much tribal knowledge

    Pros

    Hours are sometimes long, but the ability to take time off as needed for personal priorities is great. Employees seem to really care, and management (assuming you have a good working relationship) are excellent at mentoring and looking out for your needs.

    Cons

    The main problem seems to be with upper management. The bottom line sometimes is the most important thing, which is a shift away from how things used to be. New owners seem less concerned about the people who drive the company forward and overly concerned with numbers on paper.

    Pros

    Good size, with room for advancement, multiple business units, so the is always opportunities. Still some good people there that care about the business.

    Cons

    New owners who took Gerber private, only concerned with selling it for a profit. High turn over rate in management, upper management put in place with no experience in Gerber's core markets.
