    I have been working at Ergon full-time

    Pros

    You will not just feel like a number. This is a family run business, and their employees are treated with care.

    Cons

    The organization is fairly flat, so there can be limited opportunities for growth unless you are willing to wait a while or move.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t lose the culture or the personal touch that the employees value so much. This will be key as the company continues to grow.

    I have been working at Ergon

    Pros

    Flexible work hours. Insurance was good but Obama care messed that up. I cant think of anymore pros, there just aren't any right now. I would not recommend to anyone as a place of employment.

    Cons

    The company only cares about money and not the people they depend on to make them that money. Salaries fall well below the average for the Jackson, MS area. Upper management has created a culture that is having toxic affects on the people they depend on. Overall morale is at an all time low. No one cares about the team aspect anymore, it's ever business unit for themselves with no constructive cross communication across...

    Advice to Management

    Bring pay up to a competitive level for all employees and encourage business units to cross communicate and learn from others mistakes so the company is always moving in a positive direction.
