    I have been working at Cortland full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are far too many pros to list out so I'll just hit the highlights. This is one of the greatest companies you could work for. I have been continuously blown away since the first day by the friendliness of the associates, the culture that drives Cortland's success, and the atmosphere that still gets me excited to come to work (and I've been here for over a year). The work load can certainly be challenging at times, but your team is always there to support you; it's not like you're ever just left to your own devices. Job training is offered to every associate to keep everyone performing at their highest level.

    Sure the deadlines can be rough and the pace can sometimes be a little too fast, but I wouldn't trade in any part of my experience thus far. It's been one heck of a year so far, and I'm excited to see where the next year takes me.

    Cons

    A lot of programs are hyped up, rolled out, and then kind of forgotten about. I'd love it if our initiatives kept up with our fast pace instead of being left in the dust.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on! Just don't forget about programs that could make the associate experience even better.

    Pros

    Support, bonus incentives, fun

    Cons

    Sometimes high pressure but always fun

    Advice to Management

    Cortland is one of the best management companies I have had the pleasure of working for. The support you receive from peers and upper management, the bonus structure and incentives are achievable and realistic, the fun that you'll have while also working towards achieving your goals and the community goals. There are moments when the job can be high pressure, but, it does not take away from the positive of working for Cortland.
