    I have been working at Guckenheimer full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management cares about success, and good benefits like free meals, free pair of shoes, good employee benefits, and normal work hours (M-F)

    Cons

    Need a little more support from corporate staff. However, regional leadership team in SoCal is top notch. Maybe a little bit more recognition and rewards in order to promote high performers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication open, and keep employees engaged.

    Pros

    Co-workers and customers are a pleasure to work with. Work- live balance is great depending on the account.

    Cons

    There is no room for advancement. Even when higher positions open up they always hire from the outside. Very bad with communicating to line employees about events in the company.
