    Little to no respect for contract employees.

    Former Contractor - Marketing Manager in Tinley Park, IL
    Former Contractor - Marketing Manager in Tinley Park, IL

    I worked at Mack Companies as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Multiple varied tasks keep one busy with tight timelines. An successful product and no cap on the marketing budget would initially make this a dream job.

    Cons

    The VP of Sales and Marketing is a subject matter expert but definitely has no experience in managing a diverse workforce. Upper management is abrasive with language and actions which speaks to the nature of a family owned and run small business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with more respect. Invest long term in your workers and make "full-time" contractors full-time employees. Most importantly, establish corporate values and practice them to the fullest extent!

    Pros

    The people are all striving towards one goal and are willing to go the extra mile to achieve it.
    The product that we sell is one of the best available in the country.
    There are numerous opportunities lurking around every corner.
    No two work days are alike.
    You get to learn something new everyday.
    You are treated like an adult and a person, not like an employee.

    Cons

    Still working on getting a proper corporate structure in place.
    Still working on getting the proper benefits in place as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to relay the message that we're all in this together and continue to support your co-workers.

    Casual dress code

    Cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP cutting costs by wrongly classifying regular employees as independent contractors.
    Improve operations management
    Establish some company policies
    Stop paying everyone as an independent contractor when they fall under an employee
    Add benefits
    Improve culture and work environment
