    Pros

    Great culture, very welcoming, excellent intern development program! Many opportunities to learn about your department as well as company as a whole

    Cons

    not necessarily a con, but work load definitely varies greatly across different days/weeks

    Pros

    Grange has great work life balance, is a beautiful facility, and people are genuinely nice. The company is committed to doing the right thing for its employees.

    Cons

    A few departments have a much different culture than the rest of the company, to their detriment. Lots of tenured associates can be change resistant.

    Advice to Management

    Bring the departments that are outliers into the fold.


  3. Slow to move and change

    Pros

    Most of the associates here are nice and easy to work with. Can't think of anything else to add here.

    Cons

    For a company that brags about 'Investing in its associates' you have a LONG way to go. Key leadership positions have been vacant for almost a year, leaving talented people just hanging with little to no direction.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Take care of your people.

    Pros

    Fantastic work environment! The company has a great work/life balance. New-hires start with unbeatable benefits (gracious PTO, free parking).

    Cons

    With great benefits, comes less-competitive salaries.

    Pros

    Free downtown parking. In spite of a lack of leadership and vision, the people band together to get work done. The people who work here have all been here forever and they make it feel like a family.

    Cons

    The leadership at Grange is a big problem. There is a severe lack of trust and respect.

    Advice to Management

    You need to just start over with leaders who are authentic and who don't talk behind peoples backs. Your conversations never stay in the room...

    Pros

    The people you work with day to day are amazing.

    Cons

    The executive leadership team is terrible. Most are in assignments that are way over their heads. They lack the necessary subject matter expertise to be effective leaders and they aren't visible (never come off of the 11th floor). Company morale is at an all time low - engagement scores will be interesting this year.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Come out of your offices and off the 11th floor and talk to the employees to find out what's really going on.

    Pros

    Benefits were good compared to other companies. Various training opportunities were available. They have team members who have been there for a long time and understand the meaning of great customer service.

    Cons

    The salary could be a little more competitive compared to other companies in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Try to retain and promote the talent you currently have. Even those employees who have been there for a long time.

    Pros

    Almost anyone will go out of their way to help you. They will have potlucks often. Have a good gym at headquarters. Cafeteria is average but local German Village restaurants are great. Dress is business casual with casual Fridays and frequent jeans weeks with a donation to United Way charity.

    Cons

    Very difficult to get an interview, you MUST have an employee referral or don't bother. Training is largely word of mouth and position shadowing which leads to inconsistent standards and processing. There are 1-3 unique systems per process which makes for a steep learning curve to process anything. The managers do not coordinate with each other well. Managers attitudes vary so it is not an all bad or all good situation.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with clear directives to drive all the way to completion.
