    I have been working at Packsize full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is growing rapidly and has recently brought in young, motivated leaders who lead by doing. It's great to work for a leader who listens and involves the employees in key decisions and works on our behalf. I've seen more action than talk which is rare in my experience and it's motivating to have a leader come work side by side with me to really understand what I do.

    Cons

    If you aren't willing to accept change and have a good attitude and work hard this is not the place for you. This attitude is rare in the company but there are still a couple "entitled" people who have bad attitudes because they want a title handed to them without having worked for it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the employees and leading by doing. It motivates the rest of us to work even harder!

    Pros

    Packsize is a fun working environment with lots of great employees. The CEO is kind, happy, and makes it a point to learn all employee's names which is amazing. There is support all around.

    Cons

    There are inconsistencies among departments - employees seem to be held to different standards depending on who their leader is.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the flexibility and work/life balance of the Packsize Culture. This is why employees love to work here.

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

    Pros

    Was pleasantly surprised to find competitive cost of health benefits. Some things paid by company (life ins, short term/long term disability premiums, etc.). I've also noticed that there has been enhancements to our benefits every year.

    Cons

    As the company grows, I imagine their paid time off benefits will need to increase, and they will likely start offering a verity of options that an employee can decide to buy or not buy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep asking the employees what benefits THEY value, keep enhancing where you can.

    I worked at Packsize full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunities to grow with this fast growing company. Had the chance to learn and grow with this company and could have continued to move into higher paying positions but decided to quit and take a different direction with life. Management was great and the CEO was wonderful to get to know and has tons of energy. This is a very green company with the desire to reduce environmental wastes. Has the largest electric/gas fleet in the state of Utah and the product they sale encourages less trees to be cut down for boxes and reduced trucks on the roads hauling products. If you want to see what they do just go to youtube.com and search for packsize.

    Cons

    Depending on what you do you may not have much time at home as you travel a lot. With many fast growing companies there is always more and more work added on to your work load and can find yourself working more hours than originally started out. It wasn't out of the normal for me to work through lunches and brakes to make sure I had all my work done.

    Pros

    - Rapid growth (approaching Fortune 500 level sales)
    - Christmas AND Christmas Eve off (both paid), Thanksgiving AND Black Friday off (both paid) each year
    - Constantly celebrating achievements (individual, team, and company)

    Cons

    - About 25% of jobs require more than 80% travel (although, those jobs are HIGHLY compensated)
    - 401(k) and health plan just ok
    - PTO just ok (2 weeks PTO, 3 weeks after 3 years, 4 weeks after 10 (TEN!!!) years, 3 "flex days" a year.)

    Advice to Management

    More vacation would be grrrrrrr-EAT! But seriously, keep doing what you're doing!
