    I have been working at Ewing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The best thing about working there is the ability to learn and grow within the company

    Cons

    There is some micro managing that goes on from time to time but as long as you stay busy you are left alone

    Advice to Management

    No problems with management

    I have been working at Ewing full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It is nice to work at a place that, even though it has experienced huge growth, still feels like a family business. You can still pick up the phone and call the owner directly. They still treat their employees with respect. Ewing also has a great benefits package. Health insurance almost totally covered for the individual employee, profit sharing, 401K, 3 weeks vacation for long term employees, sick time, scholarship...

    Cons

    Lots of change from growth, create uncertainty and doubt.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing, but never forget the family culture that has made this company great.

    I have been working at Ewing full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have been with Ewing for a few years now and the training is they give is second to none to their customers and employees.

    Cons

    They grossly underpay you. Healthy more then doubles every year and the person that is managing the health plans for the company doesn't use the plans they get for the company. Health Plans are sub-par at best. They raise your health and 99% of the time will not even give you a raise to help cover it so basically you get a pay cut every year. And if you use any kind of tobacco product forget it you pay an extra 50 a month...

    We are sorry to hear that while working at the Ewing Home Office you felt under appreciated and underpaid. Ewing provides one of the richest benefits plans in the industry to it's employees. Health care costs are increasing ever year and we absorb as much of the increase as we can ...

    I worked at Ewing full-time

    Pros

    Ewing is family owned and management largely treat their long-term employees as members of the family. Many employees have been with the firm for decades. Before I left, they instituted a program designed to improve the quality of staff. Certain milestone of this program were associated directly with pay increases. They have a policy for reimbursing college tuition (see cons for counterpoint).

    Cons

    Along with the "family company" culture, comes the hazard that management and leadership is very cliquey. There are those people who are on the "inner circle" and those who are not. This had more to do with personality than ability. Compensation is low across-the-board. Yes, there are increases built in to the SP program (employee development), but when the base is low and with our standardization across level and/or...

    Advice to Management

    Start taking care of all of your employees - not just those who are your friends. Pay people a fair wage. Look for people who challenge you, not just back your decisions. Encourage people to better themselves.

    I worked at Ewing full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -People are nice enough -Training and education is top-notch -There is a clear promotional track though you are not likely going to be promoted before five years. -Events are great. -Faith-based company, if you're into that. Makes for very spirited upper management.

    Cons

    -Faith-based company. Insert typical passive aggressive Christian values. I'm a Baptist and I feel uncomfortable around those guys. -Two kinds of people at Ewing: 5+ year veterans with huge egos and 2- year employees warming up their resumes. -Pay is $10.00/hour starting out, with a max potential increase to about $13.00/hour. Good luck surviving on that; management consistently tells you to work on 'evolving your career'...

    Advice to Management

    -Increase wages at the bottom level. I am probably not your best employee but there are plenty of guys at my level who can help your company be GREAT! You're losing employees because of the low pay vs. the high demand on them. -Half of the time we feel like we are brought to your events just to make your numbers look good rather than it being an enjoyable experience (I'm looking at you, Vegas trip and Phoenix marathon)....
