    I have been working at Guardian Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is lots of room for growth within the company. One thing that attracted me to the company in the first place was the amount of people who had been working there 10+ years (and even more). Promotion from within is encouraged. Guardian takes the Koch MBM Guiding Principles seriously... instead of just having them posted on a bulletin board somewhere, they are used in business practices. There are many training opportunities for employees for career growth.

    Cons

    There have been recent shifts in the vision of the business. This can cause some rifts with employees who have been with the company for a long time and have a hard time adjusting to the change, making it difficult for those who are on board with change.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage career growth and be transparent.
