    Advice to Management

    THANK YOU! Thank you for being so generous. It feels great to work for a company that values the people at all levels of the organization. Having worked in manufacturing companies before, I can attest that no other company treats their plant employees as well as CM. And that generosity goes throughout the company. They are truly invested in our work/life balance, in our compensation and bonus, and in us as people. I have had a wonderful experience working at Continental Mills.

    I worked at Continental Mills full-time

    Pros

    Privately held. Excellent pay, health care benefits, bonus structure and time off.

    Cons

    As the company grows so does the layers of management. More politics to navigate. Recruiting in many new employees that have worked on large corporate brands. These new employees have influenced the company culture creating more of a Type A culture in sales + marketing.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline levels of management working on brands to allow for speed to market.

    Pros

    Good benefits, really great people

    Cons

    Leadership is slipping fast. They are so concerned for numbers and themselves, they are stoming all over the values they espouse. There is wasted space between what they say and what they really do adn who they really are supporting... thier own paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    The challenges you are facing come from leadership. If senior leadership can't agree where they are going, no wonder taking the company there is impossible. Go back to the values.

    Pros

    Very knowledgeable and nice people to work with. Healthy work environment where everyone seems to love what they do. This place felt like a big family,
    Good sized HR department, which indicates that the company spends the time and resources to care for its employees.
    Lots of free training offered!

    I very much enjoyed working at Continental Mills.

    Cons

    Can't think of any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Although the dress code has been loosened up last year, I would recommend dropping the code all together, especially if you want to attract younger professionals.

    I loved working at CM! It was a great culture and was a family owned business. The owner of the company was sincere and truly cared about his employees

    Cons

    The company is very old school and change takes forever. All processes and procedures take forever to change.

    Advice to Management

    Move faster, make decisions faster
