    Ability to grow if you are motivated and work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Believing in senior (regional) management to make the right decisions is crucial to a healthy culture. That being said, when the decisions end up being unethical they have to be stopped, especially when it involves other employees livelihood.

    Pros

    Work / Life Balance, Multiple Locations, Recognition of Good Work, Vehicle Reimbursement, Pay, Flexible Work Location, Talented Coworkers

    Cons

    Lack of Corporate Communication or Direction, Attitude of Branch Employees, Follow Up, Direction, Vacation Accrual, Operational Change used to take awhile, New COO seems to be the real deal

    Advice to Management

    Clearly identify sales goals, follow up on promises, give clear direction of expectations at the beginning of the year, get rid of any employee holding back the branch or district - it is only hurting the morale of your location

    Pros

    Crescent is a company, I feel, often overlooked to plant your feet and plan a long career. It shouldn't be. It's truly a place that provides an opportunity to make of it what you will. It's the best of both worlds when it comes to wanting a large corporate dynamic or small company feel. They provide you enough freedom to help identify your own opportunities but also have the resources that lead you on a path to success.

    Cons

    Changes could take place a little faster. Transparency of department objectives would help collaboration efforts to fast track common goals.

    Advice to Management

    Delegating more efficiently would help in achieving your objectives faster.
