    Pros

    Best Company i have ever worked for. Very Family orientated company. Very understanding and will to work with you. Very relaxed environment. Free Onsite Gym and Free Onsite health Clinic. Benefits are great. Awesome yearly bonus. Management is wonderful. Never Micro Managed. Room to grow and learn, with opportunity of advancement. I feel very blessed to work for this WONDERFUL company.

    Cons

    Only thing for me is the long commute. Most everyone who works here drives 30 - 45 minutes to get to work. Other than that. It perfect

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Normal hours. We have a gym there.

    Cons

    A lot of people that work here are not that smart. Also, the structure has way too many managers. About 90% or more of the managers are bad at what they do, and are people that go on power trips. I am dreading going to work. Also, you pretty much have to go to a different company to have any advancement. Advancing within is seldom and varies by team. Most of the teams, you would probably just be stuck in the current position.

    Advice to Management

    Don't cut gas bonus.

    Pros

    The company really takes care of its employees. They have a health clinic on site, great benefits, gym, healthy choice cafeterias, and quarterly meets that reward their employees for their good work. Work environment is great, with good people who have been with the company for years! Management is very down to earth as well as the people you work with. I just celebrated my year at Paramount and I am very impressed on how the company rewarded me. Especially with travel on the company's private jet!

    Cons

    There is not a lot of training procedures. You kinda just get thrown into your job and hope for the best. It is a lot of trial by error.

    Advice to Management

    Have a set training procedure along with a set time to train employees.

    Pros

    Pay, Gained good work experience, my supervisor was awesome! My co-workers were the best. Had lots of fun, even when we were so busy and it was so hectic! Loved Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner that the company would provided for us.

    Cons

    A lot of hours, hardly seen my child, temp agency. For all the hours we were working with no days off, I would have loved to see that holiday pay at least!

    Advice to Management

    Work-life balance was not so great, but the position was only temporary. I love the company values and when our work line did great, we would get rewarded with an hour lunch and the company would buy us food.

    Pros

    Business expansion is creating opportunities for work diversity and career progression/development. Senior management is experienced, stable, committed to the success of the business and demonstrates care for the workforce. Company is progressive within its business segment. Compensation and benefits are good within its business segment. Culture stresses team work, individual contribution, hard work, and improvement.

    Cons

    Level of change can be difficult for some to adjust. Work hours can be long particularly during certain times of the year.


  9. A pleasant experience that has provided me with another business avenue to add in my portfolio.

    Pros

    Most of the people there are great to work with. Good benefits. Access to resources from other companies through the parent company.

    Cons

    Many times the company does not look within when hiring for a new position. Communication is very lacking in many departments.

    Advice to Management

    Need more communication on how each areas jobs affect the overall company. Need more standard operating procedures and have them documented.
