Pros

Every member of the senior management team seems to have healthy interactions with everyone else, at every level. There is a constant desire to evaluate our processes and procedures, and to improve efficiency, decrease redundancy, and grow. We're the most un-stuck place I've ever worked. It's in a beautiful place, and the general "feel" of the workplace is comfortable and inviting. There are lots of internal promotions and recognition for good work.

Cons

It's in the middle of nowhere - you're almost guaranteed a commute, but for local people, it's a rare opportunity to work for a healthy business of a decent size without having to go far. It's still a relatively small company, so there is some need for wearing multiple hats, like with any other small company. But there are clearer definitions of roles and reasonable accommodations, unlike you'd see elsewhere.

Advice to Management

Continue to maintain the open and honest relationship with the entire company, by getting small groups at all levels involved in things like the task teams, and by holding the company-wide town hall meetings. That openness helps everyone understand the big picture of what they're working to support and achieve.

    I worked at Berkshire Blanket full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not micro managed so decisions can be made quickly. Always seeking new ways to improve how the company is run. Value input from all levels of the company.

    Cons

    In the middle of nowhere. Wages are not up to industry standards they run on the lowest side. HR department needs improvement. Benefits are not good.
