I worked at Levi, Ray and Shoup full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good pay, good benefits.
Many good people work there.
Onsite health facility.

Cons

Benefits have been cut over the last 10 years, possibly to subsidize divisions that don't produce revenue.
Management is firmly entrenched, little opportunity for career advancement, resistant to change.

Advice to Management

Give smart people more freedom to implement new strategies.
Allow employees to honestly evaluate managers to find weak points.

    "Worst Managed Company I've Worked For"

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Career Opportunities
    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Springfield, IL
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Springfield, IL
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Some of the nicest people I've worked for and will remain friends with most everyone I worked with there.
    They compensated me well.
    Private jet travel.
    On site swimming pool and gym.
    Sponsor an NHRA Funny Car Driver who is the absolute nicest guy in the world.

    Cons

    Don't understand the words synergy or how to work together.
    Each group is its own silo and every group with the exception of Education Services refuses to work with the other groups.
    Could double or triple their sales if they had someone who encouraged the groups to work together and present a unified front.
    One group sold IBM hardware and software but all the other groups used Dell and Microsoft.

    Advice to Management

    Force your groups to work with each other. Unbelievable how simple this one thing would lead to increased sales and a more cohesive company. Creating individual silos of business lines will eventually lead to none of them reaching their full potential.
