    Pros

    This is a small/mid-size company where you really get to know your co-workers really well. I had the pleasure to become good friends at work with the managers. The company pays well and recognize your work. Paid time-off policy is amazing. There may be times when work load is quiet, but that's when you have the opportunity to learn things from different positions or even different departments. The company values in cross-training. Co-workers are very nice to each other.

    Cons

    The only con that I can think of is growth opportunity. Because this is a small/mid-size company an entry level employee doesn't have much opportunity unless someone from higher-up retires or leaves the position/company.

    Advice to Management

    Consider having an office in the West Coast or major cities to promote the business and achieve future goals.

    Pros

    Work 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.

    Cons

    Very 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 Management

    Recognize the talents of your employees and focus on developing them.

    Pros

    Gorton'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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Keep offering many options for employees

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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

  10. Gorton's gives you all the tools to develop professionally by giving you opportunities in all aspects of supply chain.

    Pros

    Reverse Commute from Boston
    Good Benefits
    Good work environment

    Cons

    Gloucester is the only office

    Advice to Management

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