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

    Pros

    They treat their employees well and very fairly. The staff is like a family and a pleasure to be around every day. Even when it is stressful they are there for you. Good PTO policy, birthday gift, Christmas gift, catered meals and more add to the benefits you already receive. They are receptive and rewarding for innovation and suggestions that help current procedures.

    Cons

    I don't have a bad word to say about this place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Nice employee perks, good location downtown, nice people

    Cons

    I worked in tech and the company was struggling at the time to identify what it is we wanted and needed to get our jobs done happily. For sales or insurance i think it would be a good place for dev and IT it was not as great even though i never felt harassed or bothered by management.

    The management of this company are a sensitive team of individuals who care about their employees.

    The company could have used an IT person onboard to alleviate some of the pain of the computers going down fairly regularly

    Advice to Management

    None.

    I worked at Carroll Enterprises part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The marketing team was professional, smart, and collaborative.

    Cons

    The top management (brother and sister) of the company was so dysfunctional, it was difficult to complete any projects. They used employees to fight their battles for them. They should be in therapy, not running a company.

    Advice to Management

    Let other, more professional individuals run the organization.

    I have been working at Carroll Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    A paycheck. This is all they have to offer here.

    Cons

    This is not a good environment to work in from the top down. SBIA has one major client and will fold if the client does not renew the contract. No training. No room for advancement. Unwillingness to listen to employees concerns and suggestions causes loss of business opportunities, growth and dissatisfaction. Just had layoffs recently.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    Great entry level starting point, and the staff and management are very easy to get along with. Training is comprehensive and there are frequent employee reviews

    Cons

    strict attendance policy-unscheduled time off is repremanded even with a doctors note. All employees are hired on a temp to permanent basis and temporary assignments are subject to end
    early based on volume.

    Advice to Management

    Should do more promotions from within company, rather than hire from outside candidate pool

    Pros

    Small company and people were very nice. Salary was good with commission potential.

    Cons

    The sales goals and expectations are currently way to high. No plan in place to increase sales other than threaten the sales people. As one of the GA choices Wells Fargo Advisors have Carroll Enterprises is low due to the fact they do not visit any advisors, take them out to lunch etc. it is all phone based.

    Advice to Management

    Create a plan that makes Carroll Enterprises a top choice for the Wells Fargo Advisors.

    Pros

    Subsized parking in parking garage next door. $10 Christmas bonus in the form of a gift card to Panera, and other popular places.

    Cons

    Most upper management has been at the company for 30 plus years. They have no concept of corporate culture. They bring in temps and dispose of them regularly.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees. Read your employee manual and make sure you are adhering to the policies set forth.
