Pros

There are very loyal and dedicated employees in Castle. Many employees are long-service and give tremendously to make Castle successful. The benefits are OK, not great.

Cons

The executives of the company receive all of the rewards, even when the results do not justify rewards. The company lost money last year and the executives all received very large bonuses.
Human Resources leadership is lacking. It is hard to see the company surviving into the future with its poor results.

    Major difference in benefits between warehouse & office employees
    "Revolving door" for managers, new GM every 6-12 months

    Silo mentality - different departments have mutually exclusive goals

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that different divisions need different tools in order to serve the customer. Give warehouse employees equal benefits, and spend some time/money on recognizing the people (and customers) who stuck it out during the tough years.
