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

    Pros

    Excellent family based company. Friendly. Welcoming. Room for growth. Great benefits(Volunteer Time Off, Fun Fridays). For starting in 1950 and remaining in their family name, RTC has proven they are more than just a place to work. Everything from my first phone interview to my now 7th month of working here, has been a positive and professional experience. There is such a friendly but serious atmosphere because of the incredible people that work there. Instantly I felt welcomed as part of the RTC family and have made connections with people in several different departments. With an ever changing work flow and a company that constantly pushes the boundaries to redefine retail environments, I am in a position where I get to see first hand what incredible vendors and clients we work with all around the world! The fact that the original founder and his son, the CEO, of such a large company know everyone by name and take the time to get to know their employees speaks volumes. It has been a great experience so far with RTC and I look forward to the years to come.

    Cons

    No cafeteria options. There are vending services but not much variety. No gym within the building. Could use a detailed list directions for some of the software systems being used.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire the right person for the right job; so far so good! Excellent communication between my supervisors and myself; they have all been very understanding if and when situations arrive.

    I worked at RTC Industries full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - FUN FRIDAYS: getting to leave at 2:30 every Friday (will be hard to work anywhere else because of how awesome this perk was).
    - Great benefits,
     - Alternative start times,
    - Great co-workers, etc.
    - I felt that RTC had a great team of people who were creative and innovative and always looking out for what the latest and greatest thing is in the industry. I had never heard of RTC until I started working there and I was very much in awe of how much this company alone affects the everyday life of everyone in the US and around the world.

    Cons

    - Pay & Bonuses, I worked on a huge account but didn't feel that I got proper compensation.
    - Also felt that there was a ton of room to grow, but felt that transitioning into a new role was difficult because there was conflict between my old boss and new boss. I felt that my old boss wasn't very supportive of my promotion, which in turn put me in a hard place.
    - I felt that though overall the company was awesome, they definitely had some employees that were dead weight and that some departments could have been consolidated.
    - I also felt that there were some times when HR should have stepped in and set some ground rules- for example, one department had a "Chinese" party, where the department was served Chinese food and were encouraged to "dress up"...talk about inappropriate.

    Pros

    Great colleagues; very talented and creative. Flextime is available. Very good benefits.

    Cons

    Most project managers are not technically proficient and make customer communication very difficult and incumbered. The company is very set in its ways and is not process driven. "Revolving door" atmosphere as talented people realize that change and improvement is not embraced.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider the approach taken in hiring project manager
