    I have been working at United States Luggage full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    This company has a lot of growth potential and has the passion to do so. There are a lot of life long members here and they stay for a good reason. The owner is generous and shares the companies good fortune with his enployees, he is humble, approachable and a good businessman. The president of the Solo division, Jon, is a great leader. He is passionate, very approachable and very intelligent. He often walks around the office asking "Everything Cool?" I am very new here, but I can tell already he will most likely be one of my best bosses. The VP of sales is very intelligent and probably one of the best salesmen in the industry. This company encourages a great work/life balance and is very family oriented. People want to work here... and they manufacture high quality products that one can be very proud of selling.

    They offer unlimited sick days as long as you can log in from your computer (this might only be for non hourly employees), which is great. The holidays are good and you pretty much get 3 weeks off by your second year. (13 days at two years and 15 days at 3).

    Everyone is treated like family here.... you get a pizza party lunch in your name the first week you start where the whole office shows up.

    Cons

    So far I can't really find anything... The benefits are pretty good for the employee, with respectable contribution... however the dependent and family plans are very expensive and would be the only reason why I would leave. .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys do a great job, keep it up... continually reinvest in employee healthcare... you will attract more people that way.

    I worked at United States Luggage full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    USL tried hard to act like a big company, with planning meetings, business reviews,staff reviews, org charts and company functions, but they always seemed hollow, as if owner did not really believe in them.

    Cons

    It always seemed to slip back into family company mode, when it came to leadership and especially to communication with employees, which except except for a very few inner circle employees seemed sadly lacking. Office culture was surprisingly provincial for the location; facilities were outdated and not particularly pleasant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less paranoia from top management might help this company...

    Pros

    The wages are fair and are reviewed annually. The owner shares the success of the company with his employees. There are many lifetime employees.

    Cons

    The vacation, sick, and personal time is all rolled into one number. The combined maximum allowed time off is reached after 8 years. The amount totals three weeks. This is not enough time off compared to other industries.
