    Not a bad place to work for, but compensation and advancement is something desired.

    Graphic Designer (Current Employee) Kansas City, KS

    ProsThey contribute to an FHA account for you, and make 401k. Employees are all really great to work with. Very laid back dress code, and you get discounts on condos for vacation. They will also help provide resources and education to further your career.

    ConsMost of the executives are all family, so a chance to advance doesn't present itself often, Raises have not been issued in a longtime, and when they are it is not significant. Health insurance isn't that great, and extremely expensive for families.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompensating quality employees is a must to keep good talent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The perfect workplace balance. Fun!

    Director of Human Resources (Current Employee) Overland Park, KS

    Fun - holiday parties, employee appreciation week, pub quiz
    Not ordinary
    Wellness - huge discounts on gym memberships
    Always something new
    There is a committee made up of employee volunters called - Committee of Awesomness (COA) that explains a lot right there. They have organized all kinds of events, hot dog derby, night at the Royals, bake sales, etc. Most of the money collected goes to a local charity.

    ConsNot a high salary in this industry, but makes up for it in other ways
    Quick change of pace - not always the best for some people
    Lack of structure

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy favorite thing about the leaders of this company is that they are approachable. You are able to learn a lot from each of them. Each one on the executive team have either formal education, many years in the industry, or both.

    Schedule flexibility and decent benefits but pay offered is far below industry standards

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you've got kids they are pretty flexible for doctors appts and school activities, and the benefits package isn't too bad if you are insuring just yourself. Most of the employees (non management level) are very nice and friendly.

    ConsThe pay is far below industry standards. Another reviewer said the company makes up for it in all the "fun" but if you are in an outside location other than the KS office you can forget about all that. If you need to put the entire family on a health plan better hope your spouse has a good one through his/her job or it will cost you greatly. Management (at least from non KS offices) primarily are only looking out for themselves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDirect to Mr Lyons: Managers are given far too many perks, yet employees are told we need to be financially cautious and are given a pay cut to save the company money? Then we receive emails about things like hot-dog derby, beer friday, pumpkin hunt etc yet the outside offices get nothing? You are a fantastic owner/President and your company has absolutely great potential but to achieve greatness you need great leaders, and you just don't have that.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
