    Very open forum for feedback from field staff to upper level executives
    Engaging leadership
    Training and growth opportunities

    Cons

    no tuition reimbursement

    Advice to Management

    Continue to engage field associates in decision making. It is working. People feel valued when they are listened to and actions are taken. Consider Tuition reimbursement to encourage staff to continue education. Review benefits packages for field-level associates and consider the overall value.

    Pros

    Stable with great opportunities to advance. The company keeps a list of employees to watch for advancement, and always looks within before outside. They are a great company to work with, and while large, do make efforts to make you feel like family.

    Cons

    They manage for a great deal of owners; the communication and expectations can a challenge given you truly serve two masters in my position. I will say, even these challenges do assist you in buidling your craft, and do not detract from my happiness in my position.

  8. Great company with great people. Everyone is hardworking and recognizes each other for their accomplishments.
