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

Pros

This is a great company to work for, they have a lot of opportunities for growth and learning.

Cons

Based on everything I have seen, they are usually 10% or 20% below market in compensation, especially on their long term employees. Then they are surprised when someone leaves . . .

Advice to Management

You get what you pay for, the good people will go to where the money is!

    I worked at Carlson Companies part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The team was great and the management team was flexible. It was an upbeat, fun atmosphere in which to work.

    Cons

    It was rare to get a chance to sit down for a few minutes during an 8 hour shift on a busy evening.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure people take a few minutes to sit down during a long shift.


  2. "Great place to work, good people from the top down. Just little room for growth."
