    I worked at CCA Industries full-time

    Pros

    Employed at cca in the 90's. They haven't changed. Sadly, nice people , some really talented , but all dislike the management which has no respect for their employees.

    Cons

    Terrible work environment because of the abusive management. They just replace bodies. Could've been a nice place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Would fall on "deaf ears ". Hopeless.

    I worked at CCA Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hours, good location, fast pace

    Cons

    Negativity inside the office, due to the management policies, is so thick, you cut it with a knife.
    Leaving and going home after a day at CCA feels like a huge relief. Company doesn't care or value it's workers. Need to watch over shoulder on daily basis

    Advice to Management

    Hire professional management

    Pros

    Some strong brands. Selling the poor brands will be helpful. New CEO, Richard, is doing what he can to turn the co around and it seems to be working.

    Cons

    Poor marketing strategy. Product development was lacking during my time. There were a lot of "me too" ideas. The old owners mismanaged the co.

    I worked at CCA Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    there was a lot of talent within the staff... more so the individuals within the departments than the supposed "leaders".

    Cons

    employees are so scared for their own jobs they are very reluctant to share resources and information. The company has downsized so much and so often its hard to maintain your own workload while having to pick up the slack of the person they just released and are not going to replace.

    Advice to Management

    It's amazing how people who obviously CAN NOT do their job have the ability to hire and fire those that can do their job.... specifically and President who is new and taking the work of the CFO... REALLY????

    Pros

    I don't believe there are any pro's that this company can provide to an employee

    Cons

    Treat Employees with no respect and they monitor everything you do even if you are a salary person. Salary people are signed in and out and for lunch like the hourly employees and you must make up any time by taking 1/2 hour lunches.

    They have recently laid off most employees and have a skeleton crew.

    Advice to Management

    Two many chiefs and not enough Indians. When a new VP brings in all new VP's and Directors from the same company they came from means the company is doomed,

    Pros

    To obtain all the insights on why corporations in a capitalistic system, no matter how poorly run, can profit for the owners and shareholders even as the company heads in a downward spiral.

    Cons

    It was like being in an abusive relationship. The more you want to get out, the more you are sucked in!

    Advice to Management

    Realize who the good, honest people are!

    Pros

    This is a strong company that has the opportunity for huge growth. They have good products and good workers in place.

    Cons

    There is no opportunity for growth at this company. They continually hire outside people that management thinks is the savior to the department but they last a few months. Pay is well below average and there has been a salary freeze for at least 3 years. Managment is unprofessional and borderline abusive. Majority of employees are miserable and are only there because the econemy is making it impossible to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Annual reviews reviews would be helpful, even if there is a salary freeze. Most employees would like to know where they are excelling and where they need to improve.

    Pros

    Stable work hours and summer hours where applicable.

    Cons

    I was not given a clear sense of my duties the whole time I was there. My immediate supervisor was at times rude, obnoxious, arrogant and wanted to always be recognized by upper management. That person's superior recognized these traits and never did a thing to manage this behavior. Communication within the department was always poor. Everyone, even the owners, seem to very much dislike being there.

    Advice to Management

    Create teams that can use TQM modules to overcome cost inefficiencies and give a sense of empowerment thus providing some positive feedback. Budget employee growth through allowing seminar attendances to various programs to stimulate awareness.
