    I have been working at Central Restaurant Products full-time

    Pros

    Upper management has put in place a culture that encourages each employee to push our business forward through ideas to improve current processes or implement new ideas/ways of doing things. Ideas are taken seriously and they have an open door policy in terms of sharing these ideas with the highest levels of management. The culture also fosters career development and offers many opportunities for upward advancement. In my experience they are open to having conversations regarding career path and allowing you to be an active participant on what that path could potentially look like. At the same time, they realize that people have lives outside the company. I recently had a baby and took advantage of their 12 week paid maternity leave. Management was completely accommodating and made it clear my only to-do during my leave was to spend time with my new baby and nothing else. This is a company that cares about their employees both professionally and personally.

    Cons

    Nothing sticks out as a real problem. There are places where they can improve the way we do business and management, for the most part, is aware and actively working on improving where needed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating your employees well and you will continue to get loyal and productive people who will work to push Central forward.

    Central has a very welcoming culture and everyone is really nice. On top of this, people listen to your ideas and are willing to try new things. There is a lot of opportunity to have an impact and for this business to grow even more!

    Room to improve some systems, but some are already in process and they are open to the others, which is a great sign for the future!

    Pros

    Central is a great company that values the success in its employees. Central is a very transparent company that never hides information from anyone no matter what position you hold. The management team helps provide motivation and sets clear goals for the team. I asked numerous questions during my internship and was provided clear and percise information each and every time. Everyone at Central buys into the core values and I was lucky enough to be apart of that success! I would highly reccomend this company to anyone looking for employment!

    Cons

    There are no cons at Central!
