    I worked at Block And Company Cash Handling & Business Supplies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I left the company in 1989. This was a small company founded by a husband and wife team. They ran a very successful business. The wife was the business side and the husband was the selling side. They made a great team.

    Cons

    They moved to Florida after I left the company. I left to start my family.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice. You made it without my help

    Pros

    Our CEO is great to work with and for. He takes a vested interest and understands the importance of Marketing and New Product innovation. He is the type of person that you are willing to work hard for since he truly cares about his staff.

    The on-boarding is less structured however that does allow you to dive right in and learn through experience.

    I worked at Block And Company Cash Handling & Business Supplies full-time

    Pros

    Company has been in business for 80 + years, Benefits are good and many choices to fit your individual needs. Provides fantastic balance of life and work. Willing to try new ideas. A lot of talented people to work with.

    Cons

    Outdated facility, computer equipment and software. Which makes it a struggle to get your duties completed in a timely manner. Morale is extremely low and has a lot of reduction in force, which leads to fear amongst the workers. "do more, with less".

    Advice to Management

    Open door policy, means more than one hour a week. Clearer direction of plans to moving forward in a shrinking market. Shared services should be more of a culture of cross-functioning teams that work collaboratively, instead of department against department, business division against business division.

    I worked at Block And Company Cash Handling & Business Supplies full-time

    Pros

    This company has longevity with over 80 years in business. It has survived several downturns in the economy.

    Cons

    Company has poor leadership from the top down. There is little opportunity to advance. The low morale decreases corporation within teams and between departments. Facility is outdated and there are no plans for improvement. Uses old computer systems and it is difficult to get approval for upgrades making for an inefficient workflow.

    Advice to Management

    Make a choice to understand the function of each department and how it supports the company. Hire qualified leaders. Recognize the people that are making a difference.
