    I have been working at Elkay Manufacturing full-time (More than 5 years)


    I've never worked anyplace else in my career that focused so much on making a difference in the world. Every one of us gets PAID time off to go volunteer at our favorite charities. And they encourage departments and teams to go volunteer together, because not only does it help the community, but we build closer relationships that pay off back at work. And it's true. People I hardly ever spoke to before we went on an outing together are now friendly to me when we pass in the hall. It's pretty great, and something I am actually pretty proud of.


    Some of the cubicles in my area are not really private enough. I can hear my neighbors, and it's distracting.

    Advice to Management

    Keep providing great opportunities to work on projects across departments, so people keep growing in their responsibilities and experiences. It makes a difference for folks like me.
