    I have been working at O.C. Tanner full-time

    Pros

    This place...coming from work environments that were hardly thriving if at all, this company really cares about their people. I love everyone I work with, the Executives truly have everyone's well being in mind, and the benefits are extremely hard to beat. We just built an on-site health clinic for all employees to use for quick doctor visits and behavioral health therapy. I wake up every day excited to go to work.

    Cons

    Growth can sometimes be a bit slow in the company, but if you keep at it and apply for the roles you believe you're suited for - you will eventually climb the ladder.

    I worked at O.C. Tanner full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    O.C. Tanner has been a very good company to work for. I had worked for them for over 14 years in different rolls. They encourage making the employees better themselves even helping with the cost of professions trainings and certifications and tuition reimbursement. The employees are friendly and management is generally adhere to the companies standards and policies.

    Cons

    The wage base and raises are not competitive with the market. The raises rarely take into consideration high performing employees and use a percentage across each team for every employee. There is some in management that are not always on board with the company standards and policies and usually have their own agenda.
