    I worked at Curtis 1000 full-time

    Pros

    Some very nice people work here. They are the best reason to be employed at Curtis.

    Cons

    Management can't seem to decide how it wants the company to be run. Recent changes may be in the best interests of the company; but so many changes are being made so quickly, that employees are feeling confused and overwhelmed. Current employee morale is quite poor. Some department supervisors are micro-managing, which is quite frustrating. Company fluctuates from hiring to laying off. Leaves employees feeling very uncertain about job stability.

    Pros

    Great job security if you do a good job. Plenty of incentive programs to earn more.

    Cons

    Not much room for career growth on the sales side.

    Pros

    Lots of product offerings, but things are rarely correct when they arrive to the customer and the cost is higher than any other company out there.

    Cons

    Taylor Corp needs to get rid of C1000, or start at the top and clean house. Terrible Management. Dysfunctional company that has no clue what century this is, or how to evolve. Curtis 1000 is 138 years old and has still not figured out that this is 2017!

    Advice to Management

    No need to advise management, as they would not listen. It is THEIR way - old school, good ol' boys club. Very closed minded.

    Pros

    The sky is the limit with this company. You are able to sell a large variety od products and services to several industries.

    Cons

    The company does lack some structure. The 401K should have better matching options and travel up to 80% of your time. Other than that, it's a really great company.

    Pros

    Great learning experience and most of the people are friendly. You can take a walk outside during the work day. Free coffee, popcorn, and doughnuts.

    Cons

    Very resistant to change. If you have a new method or idea, be prepared to defend it with your life and to hear no.

    Advice to Management

    If you keep doing the same thing you get the same results. Be more open to change.
