    Pros

    The blue-collar people who are still there are great. A few remain from when I left. They are still the soul of what AWC used to be.

    Cons

    A.W.Chesterton has hired VPs that are power hungry, creating a prison-like atmosphere. HR is also useless. They are run by another power hungry, and heartless individual. Pay rates are already lower than average (glassdoor.com) and has stayed unmoving for the last 5 years. The new atmosphere has become toxic and backstabbing.

    A mixed bag!

    Pros

    Awesome people across the organization. I’ll definitely keep in touch with many. Of course with any company you have a couple of bad apples but 90% good. I would consider coming back if compensation/structure was changed. Most office based jobs are remote currently. Good benefit package.

    Cons

    Ridiculous micromanagement in Marcom which leads to poor moral. Sometimes it’s a case of the wrong people in management roles, and/or managers not able to make actual decisions. Roles are expanding but compensation is not expanding which leads to job burn out. When someone leaves, don’t dump the work on other employees. If you an eliminate a role, you shouldn’t bring it back tacked on to another without proper compensation and job description revision. Zero marketing/sales alignment (Marcom).
