I have been working at NELSON full-time

Pros

Every office is different, but the leadership in our local office is tremendous. The organization is large enough so that there are some nice systematic features. Due to local leadership the work/life balance is very good and the overall experience is quite good.

Cons

NELSON is like a sports team that is always rebuilding. They constantly shift direction and drift toward the newest big idea without having any real focused, meaningful, and specific core values. It's a lot of 'Corporate-speak' without much in the way of actual content and very little backing up words with actions.

Advice to Management

Be real . . . be human. Don't treat people like numbers . . . treat them like individuals and understand that a company is the sum of it's parts. Understand that leadership isn't just a title but that it's actually doing what you say you will, ironically a NELSON core value that is rarely followed within the actual organization.

    Pros

    Helpful team, respect for employees and good work ethics. There is flow of work within various offices which helps in employee communication and networking.

    Cons

    Promotions and reviews are very laid back, there is a lack in employee recognition and compensation effort, the work is standard and don't get much opportunity to be creative at times.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation and salaries should be more competitive, more effort to expand business in different sectors such as retail and hospitality.

    Pros

    Decent insurance and other benefits.
    Good co-workers; an image of hardworking, warm hearted factory workers working for mean, egoistic, factory owners.

    Cons

    Unprofessional organization, poor management, no respect for design, draining energy, no promotions (unless if you are friend with upper management)

    Advice to Management

    Hire a professional workplace consultant to improve corporate culture.
