I worked at CastleBranch full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good benefits, 401k matching, vacation, healthcare etc for full time permanent employees only. Lots of celebrations and food days. Everyone is very nice. If you are good at repetitive tasks day after day it will give you good office experience for your next job.

Cons

Stressful work environment, low pay for the type of work, volume driven production required. They hire lots of people for the summer and then fire lots in the fall. You have to go fast and have good accuracy and you might become permanent.

    Pros

    Some team leaders are flexible with needed time spent out of work. It is nice to have a laid back dress code.

    Cons

    Pay is horrible. Management makes a tremendous amount more than everyone else. Yearly raises include are about .30-.60 cents for most employees?!? Some positions are not even needed within the company, Many positions require a hight amount of responsibility and accountability with very little pay compared to other companies with similar positions. There are 'budget concerns,' yet frivolous spending happening constantly...i.e. private plane that is mostly used for upper management's personal (not the as-intended, company-wide business) trips. Initial training is not very good. There is hardly any organization within the company. It's basically a learn-as-you-go type of deal for all departments.

    Advice to Management

    It feels that the leadership at Castle Branch is more focused on the profit than employee retention, growth, or overall happiness at the company. There is a high turnover rate with this company due to the inadequate income, benefits, and career growth provided to employees. It is discouraging to work really hard to help a company grow then have someone with less education and less work experience make the same amount of income as you.

    Pros

    Pay is pretty good for what you're doing
    Everyone seems to be in a good mood and greets you kindly
    Hours are very good, with easy to obtain overtime during peak season
    Very thorough training
    Easy to move from different positions as long as no degree or special knowledge is required.

    Cons

    Current shift, 11-8pm, doesn't allowed for any kind of a day life.
    Work week is Sunday through Thursday, not a problem for some, but I never enjoyed working on Sundays and if you go to church you will miss it.

    Advice to Management

    As it's my first week on the job, there really isn't a whole lot I can say about the management at Castle Branch. From how everyone acts, I can assume a tight ship is ran and everyone is pretty satisfied.
