Pros

Benefits are not too bad. Enthusiatic individuals will do well in the first few years. Opportunities to learn a lot, either inside with process changes or through education assistance. A good wellness program.

Cons

Upper Management is very partial to some dysfuncional/disruptive individuals which in turn creates a very negative, non-progressive work environment. The bottom line: they have always done it this way and no matter what is said, things will never change for the better. As a new employee they give you freedom to champion change, but it goes right back to the way it was and then you become obsolete...on to the next new person or consultant. Very sad, many great people have worked there and been driven out...too stifling.

Advice to Management

Please just admit that it isn't working the way you are doing things. You have had (and have) some great people, let them make change happen. Stop protecting the people that ultimately hold you back. Southworth could be so much more successful!!

    Pros

    Company tries to keep moral high through parties & pot lucks. Lot's of nice people. So kind of fun to work there. Not sure if they still do all the parties so without those not much there. Good place to start out I guess.

    Cons

    Benefits & Vacation / PTO laughable. Unreasonable length of time required to be vested in pathetic "bonus" plan...also to any vacation time. Political bs & nepotism prevails. sales staff has a tenancy to create unreasonable time lines.

    Advice to Management

    Since there is no way you would ever pay more you should at a minimum consider changing your vacation and bonus requirements. I think more people would stay if these things were not so unobtainable 7 years until bonus tenure....come on.


  2. "A company to gain experience."

    Pros

    Small company where you have the ability to interact with top management daily.
    You have the ability to make decisions on your own with daily activities.

    Cons

    Too many things happening with out resources to get them all done. The company needs to reevaluate it's business model. Primarily in reactive mode not proactive. Limited chances for advancement.
