    Pros

    Inland Label & Marketing Services is an excellent company to work for. They want their employees to be successful and give them the tools that are needed to do so. If you are a motivated employee that wants to move up, Inland will provide opportunities to you. They care about their employees more than any other company I have ever worked for and while they expect you to work hard, they understand that you have a personal life as well and are supportive of the needs of you as a person outside of the workplace. It is refreshing to work for a company that is constantly working to better itself and providing its employees with the tools and resources that are needed to allow the company to continue to get better and grow.

    Cons

    If you do not want to work hard or be accountable for your work, Inland is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire qualified, motivated employees and continue to care about your employees.

    I worked at Inland Label & Marketing Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good people on the front line and middle management. Willing to invest in the future of the business, through equipment and technology.

    Cons

    Lack of training, management will criticize without knowing all the facts. Trying new things but not understanding that these things take time. Some items don't exist in the market place and need to be developed. Management will select favorites. It is a company of "good old boys" as indicate in other reviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hide journal information, you never know who will have access to it, and will read it and know you did not give that feedback directly to the employee. Offer help and constructive criticism. Don't play favorites.

    A successful company, but a good old boys club that churns through good people like a hot knife through butter.

    I worked at Inland Label & Marketing Services

    Pros

    At the very top, the CEO, owners, and board of directors really understand the market and how to make the company profitable. The owners are compationate and generous to long-term employees. The company invests in new machinery and stays current with the industry. The market base is fairly stable. The company returns a portion of the profits to the company in terms of profit sharing. The company gives back to the community.

    Cons

    The downsides to the company really come down to leadership problems below the CEO. The CEO is very fair, but at the VP level there is a lot of disrespect, in-fighting and personal agenda seeking. One or two at this level frequently badmouth employees (or the CEO) behind their back, which can be very unnerving. It is not uncommon for new employees, especially professionals and mid-managers, to be given no mentoring or training, little direction, no support., only to be let go after a short time, bad-mouthed on the way out the door, and left with a bewildered look on their face wondering what happened. Even long term employees can be turn on in an instant if a VP feels threatened by their success or relationship with the owners.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to the honesty and fairness that the Glendenning family is known for.
