    Pros

    The people. The culture. Privately owned. A company that actually cares about their employees. Competitive pay. Great benefits. Growing business.

    C-level should visit branches more often. Mundelein is the nerve center, but our divisional facilities are the muscle. No other cons

    Pros

    You will gather invaluable learning experiences at this company as you manage and have control over more aspects of your business as compared to competitive companies. Good place to start a career.

    Cons

    You can make endless lateral moves but there is very little room for upward mobility unless you are a friend or family member of the owners and their closest associates. The culture is aggressive, swearing is prevalent, and sales reps are extremely rude with very few exceptions. Associates can have an inflated sense of self worth encouraged by the "we're the best, screw you" culture. Every department operates separately, cross-over is very poorly managed, and communication can be very poor. You will work a lot, but you will not make a lot - you should apply here for the work experience, not the pay.

    Advice to Management

    Share knowledge, encourage cross functional teamwork and cooperation between departments. Abandon the aggression that is negatively branding your company to the outside world. Improve health benefit costs.
