Pros

The company has grown so much in the past three years which means more movement opportunities. Benefits are in line with national averages, and they just upped paternity time off to 10 days, which is very good.

Cons

The company has grown so much in the past two years that they can not offer certain benefits like they used to. When I was hired all employees got an annual profit sharing of close to 3.5% of their salary put into their 401K and it was vested after just two years. Now the profit sharing is just a meager 1% and its vested over 5 years. The other draw back how the company promotes its employees. The company is a "favortism" type company where if you know the right people you can move up, if you do a great job, are qualified for promotion positions, you dont even get asked to interview cause there is no interviews.

Advice to Management

Put out all vacancies for all management positions as they would with other positions. Have a 360 degree review process for its management staff since many of their first and second line managers are not at HQ sites.

    Pros

    Good people, good benefits (at one time), fair salaries.

    Cons

    Through acquisitions and changes in management this company lost its sole and direction. Put profit and growth ahead of morale and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Even if you are new management due to acquisitions or changes the morale and welfare of current loyal employees may be more important than bringing in your own people and the what have you done for me lately additude.
