    Former Employee

    Very interactive and helpful.

    Sep 13, 2011 - Acrylic Supply Intern in Garden Grove, CA

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Very fast paced and project orientated workplace. Must have individual drive to be successful. You will be pretty much very independent and have to look for projects or work to hope on to.

    Cons

    Your experience really depends on what department you get placed in. Fortunately I was placed in Acrylic Supply and my manager was very flexible and allowed me a lot of responsibility. Some of my other peers were not so lucky.

    Sometimes there are too many managers giving instructions for the same project with no clear leadership.

    Good Place to Grow

    Oct 5, 2015 - Sales Account Manager in Garden Grove, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Well planned training programs from the shop floor to management. Extensive opportunities to visit sister sites for training. Reasonable opportunities to transfer to other sites including international. Fair compensation but negotiate during this process as they do like a good value.

    Cons

    They take a long time to make decisions. Regardless of the subject it seems to take longer than necessary to make a move. It took a few months to bring me on board and several interviews. Similarly, approvals of marketing materials, contacts and blanket orders/quotes were extensive.

    Big Company, Small Company Problem

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I think their willingness to back aggressive development of yet to be developed products is good. The salary is good as well.

    Cons

    They were very unorganized, and had a management system constructed by seniority, not by competence.
