    I have been there for two years now and I am happy I was encouraged by bosses to do something more than a daily scope.

    Transactional Buyer (Current Employee)
    Bratislava (Slovakia)

    ProsIf you say your opinion on e.g. what is not working well, we look for ways together how to improve workplace.

    ConsI would not say challenges connected to working there as a company. There may be day to day challenges which turn up and then are solved - e.g. work distribution = if someone is overloaded, it means there is some space for re-distribution of work. Till then, it is challenging. (But maybe I am just lucky, it is not in all departments the same)

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would like to thank them for opportunities, He\She who wants to grow, can achieve success in this company. I like the idea, that in some time we will move to one building that will be better for us (more space, all departments at the same place,...)

    Great Experience, Great People

    Marketing Communications (Former Employee)
    Milwaukee, WI

    ProsThe culture was incredible - great balance between working hard and playing hard. A lot of opportunities to get promoted within. Great pay and benefits. For such a large company, you feel like you actually have a voice that is getting heard (which I've found to be rare within large organizations).

    ConsIn all honesty... no cons come to mind. As long as you are willing to put in the work, you will be recognized and rewarded.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

    Internship in Corporate

    Intern (Current Employee)
    Glendale, WI

    ProsI have been an intern here for almost a year now and this is the best experience of my life so far. I have had the opportunity to meet with various leaders, attend meetings, produce work that will actually be used in Corporate events and meet outside businesses. Not to mention that the pay is great and they are very flexible with my school schedule

    ConsThere are some situations that I may end up staying late until 7 p.m. or even 10 p.m. but its worth it to get the job done and done properly.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It was a very good experience.

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)
    Waukesha, WI

    ProsIt was a great place to work. I liked the fact that we were able to work remotely and they always treat their employees well. I also liked the challenge of some of the projects.

    ConsNo complaints in that department.
