    I worked at Odom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In the heart of Bellevue, wide assortment of brands in four states. Office culture is quiet and comfortable, people are pleasant and helpful. Office culture in Bellevue is very team oriented.

    Cons

    Employees enjoy working at Odom so much there is not much movement to other companies and the office is small so people tend to stay in a particular position for a long while, so it may take a while to switch positions.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that the same information is made available to all employees across departments.

    Pros

    Good network of employees, with a great flow of communication. Has a real family feel in a larger company. Management strategy that won't allow you to fail.

    Cons

    Because of the nature of the celebration beverage business, there are no vacations or days off allowed on any major holiday, or between the months of October and December.

    Advice to Management

    Never abandon the principals that keep that personal family feel.

    I have been working at Odom full-time

    Pros

    Becasue it is family owned and small it is more flexible than many companies in terms of working hours, taking vacation, etc. Offers full benefits (for FT) and vested matching 401K program. Overall friendly people.

    Cons

    Because it is smaller and in the beverage distribution business, salaries seem to be somewhat lower. Limited advancement opportunity due to size, depending on your department.

    Hours can be vary. Moving up is difficult, unless you have been there a long time. Can get very stressful at times (but what job doesn't). Working weekends makes it tough to balance work life and personal life.


  11. Although work was consistent, many changes were implemented without any consultation of those who would be most affected

    Pros

    consistent work.. Fair pay scale and benefits package. Senior management seemed concerned with the overall "happiness" of work force. Attempted to keep small business feel as the business increased in size.

    Cons

    recognition of quality or exceptional work was non-existent. poor communication between all levels and facets of the business. No sense of team atmosphere or cooperation between facets of the organization. managers failed to adequately obtain and share vital information from work force that could have saved a great deal of time, effort, and finances.

    Advice to Management

    form some type of leadership council or focus groups that will give a bigger voice to the employees that are responsible for the inner workings of the organization. This type of interaction would foster a better understanding of the firms goals, give higher levels of ownership to the success of the organization and allow for a more fluent transfer of information in both directions//
