    Pros

    Employees are generally very happy, smile and say hello in the halls. No one is ever pigeon-holed into a certain role, moving around to different positions and departments within the company is encouraged. Many other companies try to keep employees where they are, and that leads to higher turnover, whereas at Erickson they'd rather develop the great talent we already have and knowledge-share. This creates a family-like atmosphere because the bottom line is they want employees to grow and be happy, rather than forcing anyone to stay in a role they are growing out of. Creativity is welcomed, change and process improvements are supported and not difficult to implement.

    Cons

    Executive level and senior leadership are working on becoming more involved with lower level, along with trying to maintain consistencies across the growing number of communities.
