  1. "Corporate, Steadily Professional"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Plymouth, MN

    Pros

    A steady and standard corporation, set in the suburbs of Minneapolis. It seemed like a pretty drama-free workplace, with everyone comfortable and calm.

    Cons

    Vast sterile office space (in the Plymouth, Minnesota facility) relaxed a little by high ceilings. While positioned as a market leader, internal awareness of market context was low.

    Advice to Management

    Unsure. Much has changed since the re-brand to Aimia. If low internal awareness of larger business context (competition, etc) persists, some education might help.

    Pros

    Executive level is committed to diversity and acceptance. Carlson was an early extender of benefits to same sex partners. Respect for diversity and cultural understanding is valued.

    Cons

    Some management didn't seem to get the memo on work/life balance, but in general, contributions are appreciated altho randomly rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to preach the gospel of "engagement", you have to walk the walk not just talk the talk.

    Pros

    The people you work with are professionals and care about what they are doing and want to help their clients succeed.

    Cons

    Upper Management needs to figure out what they want Carlson Marketing to be now and into the near future. Upper Management also needs to put assets back into the infrastructure of the company to make sure they can stay competitive to keep clients.

    No one looks out for your career. It will only advance if you make it happen. Work life balance is sometimes challenging.

    Make sure everyone understands your strategy. Not everyone knows you actually have a strategy. For those that do know you have one, they are not sure it is the right strategy.
