    Pros

    The people are amazing. There is a sense of comradery that does not exist every where.

    Cons

    High turnover, benefit cost to employees. The company is not what it once was. Lack of trust with employees.

    Pros

    If you want to hang around, go nowhere, and collect a check, you can do that.

    Cons

    Lesser qualified people ahead of you will block any chance of moving forward. The company is run with a skeleton crew. Managers run around like chickens with their heads cut off. No money is reinvested into the company, even for marketing. If you want a career and to advance, it won't happen here.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge and reward are important to employees. No one wants to be dead-ended beneath someone unqualified for their job.

    I worked at Everbrite full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people that you work with.

    Cons

    I asked for help on accounts because the workload was too much for one person to handle. Management responded by telling me that I could handle it, and proceeded to give me two more accounts.
    Majority of the day is spent in fighting with manufacturing and other departments, because no one wants to accept blame for mistakes made. Customers suffer because the bottom line is the only thing that matters to the company.

    I spent 3.5 years with the company and never once met the owners.
    Management does a poor job in communicating with employees. They do an excellent job of segmenting the work force into teams, and encouraging in fighting among departments.

    Management runs sites daily, and frequently has their door closed when employees need help. I asked to interview for a vacant management position, and was told that once it was made available they would let me know. They then hired someone from the outside.

    "Raises" as they are called are less than 3% a year. 3% is the max you can get but you are frequently told it is IMPOSSIBLE to get to 3%. Was told by upper management that the job is project management, but classified as customer service to pay employees less.

    Advice to Management

    PAY YOUR EMPLOYEES!!!!!! Especially employees who have been there for a few years.
    Hire managers who actually know how to manage people, not former AM's who are good at their job.

    I worked at Everbrite full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are a lot of nice people there. The CFO, Chris, is also a fantastic person and I really enjoyed talking with him.

    Cons

    Management is extremely cliquey, people were given promotions who did not deserve said promotions, and management is also very unapproachable. There was no room for advancement due to management "promoting" leads to managers, and then cutting the lead positions. The building is extremely outdated and, quite frankly, hazardous to your health. There are cockroaches in the kitchen (HR said that they were taking care of it so who knows the status of it now). Also, it was common place for there to be a stench of dead mouse either in customer service, in the kitchen, or in the front office.

    The lack of maintenance on the building is also insane. Instead of fixing roof leaks, they would hand tarps from the ceiling and have a garden hose at the bottom that drained into a garbage can.

    The list goes on and on and on

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so cliquey and actually listen to employees needs. Balance out workloads, and treat people like human beings, not like minions.

    Pros

    Trying to be a large professional company. Failing miserably. No regard towards there employees. No personal and/or sick days. No recognition of jobs well done. Every order coming through is a rush, and has nearly impossible ship date. Always out if parts. No processes. President only cares about salaried employees. Cares nothing about the employees on the floir who do the most work.

    Cons

    There are no cons I can tell you about.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look and recognize the salaried people on the floor. Not just the people in union or salary. WE are the people who make the company. Take a close look at how things are run at your smaller plants and look how management treats their employees. ESPECIALLY women.

    Pros

    People are wonderful. They understand the high demands and try to help. Lots of changes are needed to make this place wonderful.

    Cons

    Upper management is very difficult to work under. They reward good account managers with more work to the point of being overloaded. They don't want people to stay long so pay is low for the workload. Have to stay there years to get enough vacation days.

    They always find ways to not issue bonus. So enjoy the free popcorn cause that's about all you will get!

    This place could be something if lots of changes are made.

    Advice to Management

    The President of the company needs to review management from the top down.

    Pros

    It is close to my house.

    Cons

    Instead of going after customers for price increases, they fire employees and expect the other employees to pick up the extra work load. Not a family orientated company at all.

    This company gets Zero stars!!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the advisory board.

    Implement a bonus program.
