  1.  

    Perfect company for a self-motivator, hard-worker and results-oriented individual.

    I have been working at Parksite full-time

    Pros

    Parksite is focused on their employees, from the top of the chain down. They expect results and expect their employees to work without needless micromanagement and oversight. Employees who can not manage their own time and generate results based on their own drive and initiative are usually the employees who complain about the company (see some of the other reviews).

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, and keep caring for us.

    I have been working at Parksite full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stability at present time. This, however, changes with the economy.

    Cons

    Multiple locations with centralized purchasing, logistics, human resources, IT, and accounts receivable. Purchasing and logistics do not work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management within this company epitomizes narcissism. Parksite needs a new leader with a fresh vision. Parksite needs someone who can work with its employees and not against them. Someone who will listen and adjust as the economic picture dictates.

    Pros

    Everyone strives for excellence.
    ESOP culture.
    Opportunity for promotion is great and they actively source within before filling positions from outside the company.
    Professional attitudes abound at all levels.

    Cons

    Unless your expectation is to just show up, not produce, and collect a paycheck and benefits without negative results, there really are no "Cons".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    People seem to genuinely like each other
    Lots of celebrations - Wii tournaments, ping pong, cookouts, etc...fun culture
    Not a ton of bureaucracy - stuff usually gets done faster than it would at other companies
    Pretty open with financials - monthly calls

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement or growth...you can get pigeon-holed in your position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career ladders, mentoring program, special assignments outside of your normal department...help employees understand the business and grow their careers within the company.
