    I have been working at ECRS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is a company where every employee can have a direct impact on daily operations. It will be up to the individual as to whether that impact is positive or negative. I have been working at ECRS for a good while now, and I know that the negative impact employees are never here for long. They either quit, or are let go, as to not bring the company down with them.

    Management is responsive and fair. Compensation is evaluated with performance and is among the highest in our area. Benefits are better than any of my friends at other companies.

    Founded in 1989, the company is fiscally conservative and always runs in the black. Job security is never a worry if you are contributing to the company in a positive way.

    If you are smart, motivated, and work well with others, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    As a constantly growing company, policies and positions shift frequently. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it can be challenging at times.

    Pros

    A very flat organization allowing direct access to decision makers.
    New product pipeline is extensive
    Great customers, some would say the best in the business.
    The company will only sell quality products. No short cuts allowed
    Steadfast commitment to customers, employees, products and markets.
    The company could care less of who you are are where you came from, if you contribute you will be noticed and appreciated. You will be provided an equal chance for promotion, if that's what you want, but you can't fake it, you must contribute to get noticed.

    Cons

    Complex product mix, not an easy business to manage
    Resources can be tight, if you want to work for a wasteful dot com operation this is not the place for you.
    We move at a steady upward pace, not a lot of hype just hard work

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on the customers and the basic fundamentals that got us here. Don't get greedy, keep the wall street types "far" away. Keep focusing on products and customers and don't fall into the traps that our competitors have fallen into, mainly short-term financial. Keep building!

    Pros

    One of the most rewarding aspects to working at ECRS is that your job and capacity to grown within the company is basically as you make it. If you come in ready to work, share ideas, and produce results you will be rewarded with both praise and opportunity. If you have something to say, you will be heard no matter your title. It's a very friendly open place with a definite emphasis on customers and "smart" growth.

    Cons

    Beautiful location, but it is far from a major airport making it tough for bringing in customers and business clients.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees respect you, the ECRS name, our customers, and the product. The growth is there and success will be long-lasting because decisions are made with intelligence, consideration, and input.

    Pros

    Very advanced thinking company. Develops great products to make our customers successful. Allows employees to have a say in the direction of the company. Management does not micro manage departments. Let's employees be creative and provide candid feedback.

    Cons

    Boone, NC is a 2 hour drive to the nearest airport. Can be a hassle if you work out of the corporate office. Winters in Boone can be a little brutal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. Keep thinking about growth and the future. Keep your customers and employees first and foremost.
