    I have been working at Emkay full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a dream company for me. There is always something going on to celebrate a deal or to recognize employees for being awesome. In my first 90 days I feel just as valued as I did in 8 years at my previous company. The highest level leaders are directly accessible, personable and intelligent. Employee perk are great, from an on-site gym and cafeteria to automotive services.
    This is a work hard play hard group and I love everyday!

    Cons

    There wasn't the opportunity for initial training before diving head first into large projects. However, even after trial and error...emphasis on error sometimes...I was shown emphatic understanding, encouragement and direction by leadership.

    Advice to Management

    You are all incredible, keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    EMKAY is a strong family oriented company, because its roots are firmly planted in a family's hands. As such, they promote a culture that puts more emphasis on employee needs. Yes, there are goals to be met, but they are realistic and do not interfere with family life. As a result, when we do have critical tasks that require more attention there is a greater willingness from everyone to be more flexible to EMKAY's needs when extra involvement is needed.

    Cons

    EMKAY has offices in the US and Canada. Sometimes, it feels like we could do better to get better camaraderie between these offices. We all do work toward a common goal, but because of distance, there is a bit of disconnect at times.

    Advice to Management

    Possibly figure out some better technology to bring us more face to face with our counterparts in Canada. I believe we all love our company and can do great things...it would be even nicer to see who we are working with more often.

    Pros

    Great corporate environment that is very family friendly. Management is very open about what is happening at a corporate level.

    Cons

    Departments are very cliquey. Management tends to have certain employees they tend to favorite over others.

    Pros

    MGMT is great. The way the company is run helps keep the workplace lose and fun. There is always something going on. I love the way they recognize the employees. It's also great that everyone know everyone in the office. No matter if you are in the President's office or at the Front Desk, everyone is friends. Love coming to work everyday.

    Cons

    None at this point. The atmosphere created by Senior MGMT is great. If anything, make sure communication on employee benefits is clear. Sometimes we don't know what else is out there for us.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. If anything, give out more EMKAY gear so we can help spread the word of our great company.

    I have been working at Emkay (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I knew from the first day on the job when the President/CEO came into my office, closed the door, shook my hand, and said “welcome to the family” that I had made the right decision leaving another fleet lessor for EMKAY. This holds true throughout the entire company. EMKAY’s employee tenure is remarkable and that is the result of the leadership and corporate culture. The work-life balance is definitely one to be modeled. The available gym, functional cafeteria, on-site vehicle maintenance, employee activities/parties/recognition programs, etc. are perks that, to-date, I have not experienced. Work might be demanding from time to time, but the support structure at EMKAY from the top-down is incredible.

    Cons

    Job training and the onboarding process should be emphasized and enhanced. Communication across the board could always be improved. Ensure that the right candidates are selected for the positions being hired for.

    Advice to Management

    Clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of your clients.

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

    Pros

    We work at a break neck pace-makes the day go by quickly. Everyone has the same goals, customer delight through operational excellence. We all work really well together, no department walls to climb. Management rewards us well with decent pay, great rewards, and fun parties.

    Cons

    The overall crazy pace we work at. Sometimes this can be very stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing with employee awards and acknowledgement. Jeans/sports apparel days are a blast, keep them. Please bring back summer shorts/flip flop days!
