    I worked at C&A Industries part-time

    Pros

    There are a lot of perks, decent benefits and a lot of great people in the organization. The owners missions is amazing and the owners really stay by their words.

    Cons

    Management gets away with murder. Zero checks and balances with management. Continuously asks illegal/discriminatory questions and allowed to yell at employees with zero consequences. Managers can walk around and literally complete nothing all day, everyday. Also when managers have zero knowledge of the systems and company policies and it has been pointed out multiple times to upper management, any changes they have tried to implement did not have any follow up and failed.

    Management rewards lazy workers because the lazy worker will cover them when they are gone for hours on end, take hours a day in a conference with said lazy person, talking about all the other employees or leave an hour early daily. And due to be intimidated by hard workers, try to smother them with negativity.

    HR notified, nothing done.

    Advice to Management

    Spend 1-2 month really monitoring your department managers. Read their emails. Read their sparks and how they talk to their employees.

    I worked at C&A Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun company events. Team leads, branch managers, etc actually care about the people on their team both professionally and personally.

    Cons

    This company just wants to be able to say that they have a good culture because they know that is the buzzword everyone wants to hear now. But when you actually step away from this company, you realize that getting a free scoop of ice cream every few months or having the ladies in accounting wear a wig and dance around isn't want makes a company's culture good. Unfortunately this company is very oldschool in the sense that they have the wrong people in important roles because those individuals have been with the company since the 90s. They refuse to evaluate employees in marketing, training, QA, etc (non quota carrying roles) and as a result, they miss out on better talent because they have this insane loyalty to these employees that aren't agile in the workplace. The healthcare fields that C&A/Aureus Medical specialize in have changed a lot in the last 15 years, and this company refuses to evolve to better suit them. And as a result of this "culture" that keeps poor performers in roles that have serious influence throughout other departments, it creates a clique-y environment. There's a lot of gossip at this company, and I feel the only real reason people stay here for a significant part of their careers is because there are so few opportunities in Omaha. So yes, you have great tenure, but it's only because people have no where else to go.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at all of your departments and think about who has actually contributed to the growth and success of your organization. Stagnant employees who refuse to evolve are who make this an unenjoyable place to work.

    Don't just talk about culture, be about it. Having your training lead read a book about culture and making "select" recruiters and account managers do a book report on said book is not what's going to evolve your company.

    And I know it's Omaha, so it's hard to say this, but increasing your diversity within your organization is crucial.

    Pros

    Culture is great. I love the people that work there, they are awesome and are like family!

    The CEO is the best - smart, great leader and a big reason why the company is successful and a great place to work.

    Company continues to grow a lot.

    In good industry, but you have to be willing to work hard because there is lots of competition.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Continue to listen to the people and continue to communicate with everyone so they know what is going on and where we are going.

    Pros

    C&A Industries is an incredible company that cares about and invests in their employees. They offer ways to get involved, professional development courses, and opportunities to volunteer. They support the Kim Foundation, Youth Emergency Services, Open Door Mission, and Completely Kids. I felt very valued and respected as an intern. Nothing goes unappreciated at C&A and if you work hard enough there are plenty of opportunities for you in this growing company.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that I could have used more training at the start of my internship. I would have liked to sit down with my team and have them explain to me what they do and their process from start to finish. I had to learn pieces of the process at different times and out of order, so this would have helped me do my job better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! You have created an incredible internship program with tons of valuable experiences and opportunities. I learned a lot from this program and met very talented people through the process that inspired me to do more and do better.
