    I have been working at COSTEX full-time

    Pros

    I've been working here for over 10 years, and I know many other employees who have to. The company provides a great work/life balance, and it is an open door policy with the CEO. There are no barriers to growth except the ones you place on yourself. It is a family environment, so you are not just a number here and the company grows every year due to the awesome work environment. They have continuous improvement programs, wellness fairs, weekly gym classes, and they pay FULL health insurance. Meaning, NOTHING comes out of your pocket. Also, any sick/health days that are not used during the year roll over. You never lose them. Very honored to be working for them!

    Cons

    None! I love it!

    I have been working at COSTEX full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am honored to be working for a company such as CTP. There are no barriers to growth except the ones you place on yourself. There are continuous improvement programs, wellness fairs, end of the year parties, and FULL health insurance. When I mean FULL, the employee doesn't have to pay ANYTHING out of pocket. Where I have worked before, this was never offered so I am extremely happy with this option. Also, vacation/sick days are rolled over to the next year if you don't use them. The company insists you do use them! It's a perfect work/life balance.

    Cons

    None! Excellent family environment- over 300 employees!

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

    Pros

    Family oriented
    Decent pay compared to other jobs
    Free coffee

    Cons

    There is no growth in this nepotistic society. Most of the management team can hardly speak english. Deceptive with annual raises. This company is great to get a two week paycheck only. If your looking for more RUN AWAY far.

    Advice to Management

    Pay close attention to the psychopaths you have in certain supervisory or coordinator positions.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at COSTEX full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excelent health insurance and dental. Company pays all. Spanish friendly for those who don't speak English. If you plan to keep a medium job, without growing in the company, with the security that the company will no close this is one job for you.

    Cons

    Stress, gossip, employees are not empowered to grow, very high work loads, employees are disposable and if you demand raise or something they will tell you that the door is open to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Promote your employees and allow employees to reach management positions since almost all positions in management are somehow family members and there is no potential to grow for this situation.

    Pros

    Company gives you a good start by exposing you to global trade of tractor parts. It is an excellent experience to learn about exports and logistics

    Cons

    The salaries are not competitive and are below the industry's standards. Management positions are for the family and thus there are very few opportunities for career advancement

    Advice to Management

    Promote employees to higher positions, especially those that have been there for years and have the experience and love for the company
