I worked at Ellison Educational Equipment full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Decent pay.
Management is clueless so you can get away with almost anything.
No one is ever fired. Employees get laid off because of "restructuring" or their job has been eliminated.

Cons

Family owned.
No job advancement in certain departments.
No comp time.
Most everyone is made Salary exempt whether job warrants it or not.
No overtime.

Advice to Management

The walls have ears. Saying, "They're lucky to have jobs", in a private management meeting will not stay private vary long.
Two years of consultants is way too long.
Keeping employees because they are friends of the family is not good managment.

    Pros

    Decent hours and time-off benefits.

    Cons

    No accountability, poor communication. Do not provide employees with the proper resources and training to perform jobs efficiently. Salary is not always competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be acknowledged and rewarded for the skills that they bring to the company, not for their personal relationships with management.

    Pros

    Personable CEO. Many long-term staff who care about the company which promotes good-will and team spirit. Great history; great story. Very good products that you can believe in. Strong strategic partnerships.

    Cons

    Too many chefs in the kitchen. Many internal family members & ties drive poor decision making. Internal disorganization. The right (competent) people need to be in the right positions. Soft sales team.

    Advice to Management

    Make tough decisions when & where warranted. Board members should be involved in the company at the board level; eliminate conflicts of interest.
