    Pros

    Money! If you do your job and don't waste time socializing, playing on your smartphone and constantly taking breaks, you can make great money and it is extremely easy to do if you simply just follow the rules. If you have a strong ability to communicate and to follow direction and can understand simple legal concepts, this job is not hard to do.

    Cons

    Not everyone can do this job, it is time consuming and you have to be able to follow the rules and listen. When I say that not everyone can do this, I mean you have to possess a thick skin, because of the subject matter of the job as well as to be able to take tough management. If you can't be told what to do and then take the initiative you will not succeed. There are long hours you can become very successful but also very busy, you can easily put in 10 hours a day if you are not careful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that when you pass information on second hand the original message is lost in the translation and transfer. If the President or Director wants to tell somebody something or give advice then be direct. Training Materials need to be more easily located training once on something and then hoping everyone keeps a handout forever is not a reasonable expectation.

    I worked at Rawlings Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Yearly salary increases are high (7-8%), however you won't start at a good pay rate so this point is moot. Room for advancement due to small size and high turnover rate.

    Cons

    Very traditional environment. Strict dress code, no flex time, casual as a reward for good performance has been taken away. Dept director has sky is falling attitude and priorities will change on a daily basis, always trying to blame other people and departments. Irrational decision making from management with no regards to subject matter expert's opinions. Stressful environment due to rule by fear. Turnover rate is laughable. CEO micromanages to an extreme degree which impedes progress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your subject matter experts do their job. Don't hire a SME just to make all the decisions for them. You have talented people with valuable opinions; just let them do what you hired them to do.

    Pros

    Good money, benefits, people. The most important factors in a job are all there!

    Cons

    Upper management tends to micromanage and worry a lot about numbers only.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the employees more faith in doing their jobs to the best of their abilities.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in La Grange, KY

    I worked at Rawlings Group as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The office is newer and has a gym, cafeteria, and coffee stand. The work life balance is pretty good, everyone must be at work at 9 and therefore everyone leaves at 5.

    Cons

    The owner of the company micro manages everything. Employee's can't eat lunch at their desks. You can't have headphones and listen to music during work. You can't leave your jacket on the back of your chair.

    The technology you work with is pretty antiquated and must always be part of the Microsoft stack.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust people aren't trying to take advantage of you.

    Pros

    Very comfortable work enviornment with peer relationships. Compensation is adequate for management positions.

    Cons

    Management tends to micro manage to the fullest extent. There needs to be more motivation driven management rather than get the job done at all costs mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand you will get much more out of your employees with a pat on the back rather than a kick in the pants.

    I worked at Rawlings Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Relatively easy to get hired. The company has an extremely poor reputation in the Louisville area which limits the number of quality candidates competing for open positions.

    Cons

    I found that success criteria was vaguely defined and constantly changing. Senior management was often times completely irrational in their decision making and thought process.

    Ridiculously stressful environment that borderlined on the bizarre.

    The encouraged management style is based on intimidation and fear.

    I would not recommend taking a position at this company under any circumstances. Most staffing and recruiting agencies will tell you the same thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the book The Emperor's New Clothes.

    Pros

    I love my work family, and I am thankful that I have a job. I am thankful for good bonuses, when they come.

    Cons

    The company lacks flexibility in work hours and dress code. The company is more reactive than proactive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace a modern culture. Treat employees with respect, and treat them as valuable assets with talent. Move away from dictatorship and into a culture that values individual performance, ideas, and results. Be more flexible with work hours and dress code.
