I have been working at Mueller Sports Medicine full-time
-Co-Workers are great. Many become friends and people that you hang out with outside of work which is a rare occurrence in my past experiences. -No dress code. Seriously. You like wearing cut-off jean shorts and a fanny pack? Go for it. It won't keep me from laughing at you but you certainly won't be written up for it. -Tons of potential for growth. -The company is growing. -Management/Ownership really cares about the employees.
-Environment can sometimes be TOO lax. Certain people should be required to show more professionalism. -Promotions can be politically/networking related, i.e. about who you know rather than based on education or experience.
Advice to Management
Just keep doing what you're doing. Keep bringing in new talent to improve in the areas you don't have experience or talent in.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Mueller Sports Medicine (Prairie du Sac, WI) in January 2008.
Met 7 employees, 1 on 1 interviews, each interview lasted around 1 hour, when hits the decision maker, the interview lasted 3-4 hours each time seems he is bored and nobody talk to him, he tries to impress the interviewees by telling long stories including inappropriate topics at work. The rest of the 6 interviewers' opinions wouldn't count since they only say whatever the decision maker wants to hear.
