    I have been working at Wilton Brands full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of professional development, opportunities to learn, great folks, several locations, open door policy, supportive environment. Paid time off to volunteer, nice benefits, summer hours, rewards and recognition throughout the year. Lots of creative types, relaxed atmosphere but strong teamwork-oriented.

    Cons

    Growing pains within the company as we work toward implementing standard procedures and best practices. Some culture clash around the same issues, but great opportunities for those that can find a balance between the two and see the way forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inter-department relationship-building should be addressed and emphasized from the top down.

    Pros

    They really care about their employees. Summer hours are amazing, and they are really flexible for people with children.

    Cons

    A very large company to work for. Some people probably wouldn't like this, but they are very successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We love getting email updates from the CEO. Maker him very personable!

    Pros

    1/2 day friday's during the summer

    Cons

    The pay schedule is bi-monthly instead of every other week. This makes planning your budget or paying daycare troublesome at points - sometimes paydays are 2 1/2 weeks apart, sometimes almost 3 weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the needs of the employees and the suggestions they would like to see during town hall meetings.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities if you work at it. Great summer hours.

    Cons

    Sometimes too much politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jerry Levine never lead a successful merger and he never will. Time for a new CEO. Too much on himself and not the good for the company.

    Pros

    Great company for younger professionals looking to get good experience; you will learn a lot; opportunity to move up if you're smart and work hard; entrepreneurial spirit is encouraged; fun product, nice people; good culture; summer hours

    Cons

    work life balance is not good- management will say it is important, but will do nothing to help you when the work load is consistently too heavy. Not surprising, nearly all of upper management and director level positions also work long hours and weekends on a regular basis; compensation is low for CPG companies in the area

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the work life balance issue will prevent good people from staying and should be addressed

    Pros

    Absolutely the best group of people I've worked with.
    Fun products across a range of customers
    Driven to serve the customer well

    Cons

    Need more people to manage the work load at times. Lots of moving parts. Lots of details to keep track of. Working on but still need to improve product marketing from traditional customers to newer markets.
