    Pros

    Great culture of integrity and taking care of customer needs. Moving from one position to another is not difficult. I started as field service technician and moved to parts customer care. Soon I will have the opportunity to move to another position if I so choose. Overall positive atmosphere to work in. The employees at the branch build a strong bond with each other.

    Cons

    Vacation - You don't get any vacation days your first year. After your first anniversary you get 40 hours of vacation...year two you get 80 hours. You stay at 80 hours until year 5. Dealing with stubborn or rude customers happens from time to time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and continue to grow the branch.

    Pros

    Crown is great if you fit in small-town culture, and you're an execution-oriented person. They do take good care of their people.

    Cons

    It's not an org that's overly willing to accept points of view from those that are not long-timers, or from the area. The culture that made them grow from a small company has made them what they are, but will be an impediment to making it the next step into a technology-centric world. Not a very transparent culture.

    Advice to Management

    Be inclusice. Companies that are inclusive do better. And not just culturally, n=but intellectually. There's a lot to gain from the insights of others' experiences.
