    I have been working at Calico Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has always been generous when it had the means. Had some tough times but looks like things are improving. Leadership seems to care about employees a lot. Managers flexible with employees regarding time off. Been here a long time and thankful for the opportunities.

    Cons

    Tough times have been hard and some cuts were painful for our department. Some employees have bad attitudes with a sense of entitlement.

    Advice to Management

    Keep evaluating people and do what you can to keep the good apples.

    I have been working at Calico Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have nothing good to say about this company. Worked there for 10 years and didn't realize how bad it was until I left. Trust me, you don't want to work here. Read other reviews to confirm this.

    Cons

    This is the worst place to work. Owner's take all of the profits so no bonuses have been given since 2010. No organization and the owner sits in his office with the door closed and has no idea what is going on in his own company. High turn over in management and hourly employees due to lack of working together.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house, start over, pay people what they deserve.

    I have been working at Calico Industries full-time

    Pros

    Calico is made of up amazing people. From the people working the phones in customer service to operations to the sales team in the field

    Cons

    The president of Calico is a small man with even smaller leadership abilities. The company is run by his father in law that pulls in strings like a goofy puppet, from afar. They win unprofitable business and walk from excellent business because they can't get outside of price selling

    Advice to Management

    Brush off the resumes because you will need them in less than a year. You heard it here first.
