    I have been working at Chattem full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Outstanding one on one training, extremely positive atmosphere, outstanding leadership that wants to see you succeed. I have been with the company for more than 10 years and it is truly a family atmosphere that encourages thinking out of the box. The lines of communication are always open with top level employees and my direct management is always positive and supportive.

    Cons

    There really is no downside at Chattem.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep the "Chattem Culture".

    I have been working at Chattem

    Pros

    Company has a family feel which is good and bad. Not micro-managed, allowed autonomy to create programs at own accounts Directors stay out of your business for most part, unless issue arises More access to management than anywhere else this size

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement few & far between. Many people here until retirement even if they should not be. Only "selected" individuals given chances for advancement. Then given extra attention and opportunities to look better to solidify "selection." Systems are bogging down daily workload Below average pay

    Advice to Management

    Pay better, not at industry average currently Listen to people, even if not what you want to hear Provide more opportunities to advancement, not to just select few

    Pros

    Small company. Great people. Excellent location in up-and-coming city/region in the Southeast.

    Cons

    Since being acquired by a larger company a few years ago Chattem is suffering from growing pains with regards to corporate strategy and human resource management. Career paths aren't clearly identified.

    Advice to Management

    Align on a more favorable human resource strategy.
