    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!

    I worked at Carroll Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    There are some very good people that work here (below executive level).

    Cons

    Executive management is inept. Witnessed people getting chewed out for trivial reasons. Must ultimately submit to the will of ownership whether you are right or wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Needs some non-family executive leadership and legacy execs should be replaced. Vision needs to be communicated along with short term and long term objectives.

    I worked at Carroll Enterprises full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work hours in downtown Worcester. Many positions available.

    Cons

    This is a family run business and not a lot of opportunity for promotion or recognition. Salary ranges are low compared to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Run salary surveys to ensure you are in line with other companies and hold management to modern standards.

    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.

    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.

    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.
