I worked at CPC (Colder Products Company) full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Colder is a great small company to start out at to get your feet wet with your career, and a good place to go in the middle of your career to further hone your skills. They value their people and are provide great products to their customers. They don't hesitate to provide you with anything you need to do your job.

Cons

The bottom line of sales and marketing often clouded the common sense of management. Foolish and short-sighted decisions regarding reinvestment in the company, particularly in technology, came back to bite them more than once. There is also a lack of accountability within the company, people that need their hands slapped are often given a free pass.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees. You said you would, you acted as if you were, then you went off and made the wrong decisions. If you actually did listen you wouldn't have constantly been wasting the company's time and money. You need to crack down on people who are detrimental to the company's business, policies and workplace environment. Many issues about employees abusing company assets and performing poorly were brought the attention of management during my time there and absolutely nothing was done about it. These people continue to work there and perform the same, over a year later.
