    Great place to check the internet

    Supply Chain Management Associate (Former Employee)
    Gloucester, MA

    ProsWork life balance and it is a small company so you'll end up knowing everyone that works there. Cape Ann is a very gorgeous area as well, even if Gloucester is a bit of a dump.

    ConsVery poor people development from the bottom up and the company is very set in its ways. People that move up aren't necessarily the sharpest tool in the shed, but more likely the people who have the brownest noses. Middle-management always seemed to be focused on micro-managing every detail, and if you dare leave a moment before 4:30 (when most people leave), expect to get glares.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize the talents of your employees and focus on developing them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Super place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Gloucester, MA

    ProsGorton's is very careful to only hire people who are a good fit for their department and since it is a great place to work people tend to stay for a long time. Personal growth is given high priority.

    ConsBecause it is a small company there are limited options for advancement at the senior level

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep offering many options for employees

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A great company with a rich history and a dedication to employees and future business growth.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosgreat people, strong leadership, work and life balance, open door environment, trust in employees, high expectations at all levels, cross-department job opportunities

    Conssize of the company results in some career growth limitations, gloucester location is ok but not ideal for all top talent

    Advice to Senior Managementcreate new positions when possible to retain strongest employees, limited number of middle manager roles with direct management responsibilities exist

    Supply Chain Management Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsReverse Commute from Boston
    Good Benefits
    Good work environment

    ConsGloucester is the only office

    Advice to Senior ManagementWith a satellite office in Boston, Gorton's would be able to recruit better talent and retain them.
