I worked at CastleBranch full-time

Pros

There was a causal dress code.

Cons

Management and team leads are all in some type of high school clique. They favor people who kiss their butts, and they promote those who they like. The do not care about anyone but their friends, especially those in their clique. There is a ton of gossip in this place. Be careful who you talk to and who you talk around. Almost everything you say will be repeated in some way to hurt you.

Advice to Management

Grow up, get out of your high school mindset. This is supposed to be a professional place of business, not gossip.

    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.

    "Frustrating"

    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.
