    I have been working at Avalon Flooring full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefit program! Heath, Dental and Vision
    Wellness program with extra reimbursements for gym, Weight Watchers!
    ESOP program
    Countless training programs
    Promotes within company first.
    Open door policy with all levels of management.
    Great work environment.
    As a full time working mom, I feel there is an understanding that my children will come first. Avalon Flooring does believe in the family first. It's nice to know I would work for company like this. I also know that dedicated hard work will not go unnoticed. Avalon Management team is continuously trying to make this company a better place for not only customer but employee too.

    Cons

    Make individuals more accountable. All levels of management need to work better as a team. (Senior management is currently trying to change policies and procedures to make this happen, so maybe not so much a con)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest time with all employees, at all levels. There are long time, invested employees that feel this is missing. But you are trying to bring this back, so thank you.
