    I worked at Caltrol full-time

    Pros

    The ESOP culture is really neat and makes you feel like you are a part of something.

    Cons

    Expected to be "promoted" quickly by getting more and more work without a new title or bump in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. Encourage dissenting opinions by not hiring "yes" men. Also, put some women in management positions!

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

    Pros

    ESOP, relationship to Emerson, Fisher product line

    Cons

    Claim open door, but it's not true. People leave the company and then are rehired and get raises! When the rest of us suffer through paycuts and are beatup by leadership. Those who get it done and care, get no recognition other than what you are doing is not enough.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the little people who care, even though you don't care about them. Perhaps before you do a layoff and then fill the positions the next month, you should re-purpose the people you let go. They are so called owners after all.

    I worked at Caltrol full-time

    Pros

    comfortable work environment, very nice people to work for in the middle management positions and below.

    Cons

    The culture is very corporate now that management at the top all changed. They could stand to treat their employees with more pay. Many layoffs recently and upper management spending is not transparent

    Advice to Management

    be more transparent and respect your lower levels employees more with better pay and benefits.
