    I worked at Carlisle Companies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people on the work force were excellent! It is clean and air conditioned....Access to quality tools and supplies needed to ensure you to perform your job successfully...Profit Sharing.

    Cons

    Very poorly managed facility. There is a huge void in accountability towards employees job details and who is responsible for doing what. They are also very poor at following through with things that they said they were going to do. Everybody seems to push responsibility off onto someone else when an issue is presented to them....this was the biggest problem that many employees are disgruntled about. So in the end you are similar to a dog chasing his tail. Things never get handled just as the dog never catches his tail.

    I have been working at Carlisle Companies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Average vacation time for entry level salaried employees. -There are yearly performance wage increases. -Yearly cash bonus which is very nice. -Room for growth. The company is very generously helping older employees move toward retirement, which creates opportunities for younger folks to move up. -Stock Options and benefits. -Yearly Company Appreciation Party -Gym equipment/basketball hoop (Dependent on location) -Free lunches for holidays plus gift card

    Cons

    -There are horror stories of people getting let go because they stood up to management. Gives a general vibe of walking on eggshells sometimes. -No Flex time (Unless you have an agreement with your manager) -Base pay could be better. Carlisle tends to get you at your local average by using their cash bonus. This is taxed heavily. -High turnover in upper management.
