    I have been working at Benjamin Moore full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Total work life balance. No big brother checking of you in, flexibility, free lunch, friendly employees, Company really tries to balance and do the right thing for BKH and employees.

    Cons

    Can seem a bit dysfunctional at times, often contradicting c-suite messages both verbal and what you see, people that don't know how good they have it. If you want a hierarchical career this is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course of our transformation - make sure all employees are on board as those that are not are so negative.

    Cares about employees, great PTO, access to internal job postings, involvement in the community, competitive salary, employee continuing education opportunities, and great work/life balance.
