I have been working at Catalina full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Catalina is a forward moving company that offers great opportunity to those that are willing to work hard. Work-life balance is a priority and, depending on department need and job responsibilities, the company allows the occasional work from home days and flexible schedules. There is a focus on employee growth and management tries to prepare all employees for the next level. The office has a relaxed atmosphere and everyone is extremely friendly.

Cons

Some departments/teams have a "that's not my job" way of thinking that slows down production. Management is trying to fix this but progress is slow.

Changes are sometime implemented before the process plan for the change is created. This makes the change a struggle at first.

Lower lever management does not have a lot of authority which slows down the decision making process even for small decisions. Everything must be approved from above.

Advice to Management

Teach your employees to walk before they run. Figure out the process before implementation for planned changes. This will help employees move through the change curve faster and smoother.

    I worked at Catalina full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The opportunties for this company to be successful are rediculous. The lower level employees are friendly and like family in many ways. The pay is acceptable with a big focus on bonuses from the employee perspective.

    Cons

    Top heavy, power hungry leaders that can't get out of the way. Over and over good ideas are run into the ground. IT and the Business are not on the same page. The stress level of middle managers who care about the business is through the roof. This is not a 'happy' place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Know your business. Cut your losses. Listen to your customers by delivering specific solutions they want to buy. Stop bringing in middle managers from God knows where as senior leaders.

    I have been working at Catalina full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Creative and intelligent people. Flexible schedules and nice facilities. Company hosts various employee appreciation events throughout the year. Covered parking.

    Cons

    Cultural challenges prohibit real transformational change. Executive management team has changed within the past 18 months and too many organizational changes have resulted in loss of critical systems knowledge. Morale is low, direction shifts frequently and employees feel undervalued. No real leaders, confidence in the C suite gets lower by the day.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a direction and commit to it. Give your people the tools to succeed and then get out of their way.
