      Great Place to Have an Impact

      Oct 8, 2020 - Full Time Salaried Employee People Leader

      Pros

      As a leader we are all thinkers and doer's. It is a great place to bring your talents and skills if you want to be a part of having a lasting impact on a company. We are 12 years young and continue to grow and evolve.

      Cons

      If you are looking for a place that has it all figured out and things are perfect; we are not there. We are growing and evolving- this is what makes it fun but not for everyone.

      Pros

      Good people with good benefits

      Cons

      Very much a culture of majority rule. Too many people have been here for too long. Clearwater still doesn't know exactly who they want to be as a company. For as small as we are we can't stay out of our own way.
