    I have been working at Caltrol full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the company is good except, the HR dept and its disgusting policy of cheating and lying to employees. The HR is know for its savage ethics and its professionally uncivilized conduct of cheating employees.

    Cons

    The top management especially that of the HR, and their implicit company policy to cheat , lie and pay employees lower wages through their disgusting carrot -on stick policy is an UTTER DISGRACE to the entire educated professional class . These bastards are trained liars and loathful prevaricators. Such shameless beings are rare specimen to civilized societies. And are plenty to be found in Caltrol' s management.

    Advice to Management

    To the management and HR with stone age ethics .....why not invest the time you spend with so much passion to cheat employees , for the betterment of the business; for a change.

    I worked at Caltrol (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee-owned (ESOP), good benefits, good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Management does not involve nor consult subordinates before making critical decisions and will just impose them regardless whether it works for the subordinates or not.

    Advice to Management

    People in the lower ranks have a lot to say to improve the system, if someone up there will only listen.

    Pros

    Caltrol represents leading technology in all industries, and has many opportunities to grow and advance your career in the company. Excellent benefits, and hard to find retirement advantage with the ESOP program. Everyone is positive and easy to work with. I have been with Caltrol for almost 2 years, and look forward to many years to come.

    I worked at Caltrol full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits were OK and this is an employee owned company (ESOP) so with time you could accumulate a good retirement.

    Cons

    Very poor management (closed door). Do not listen to their employees. Make decisions based on bottom line only! Lots of favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees that are on the front lines! The ones dealing directly with the customers and vendors. Ask for (and listen) to their suggestions. Give them feedback.
