    I have been working at Radio Systems Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The attention provided to my on boarding and continuous follow up has been incredible. It is all about the employee, from unbelievable benefits, competitive pay and the team mentality that is more than a break room poster narrative! The company provides accessibility to all levels of management and truly values me as an employee. The pride and competence of the folks within the organization is displayed by performance and positive attitude. The ability to perform with excellent tools, systems products and support contribute to my personal success, promote our product and create a environment of success

    Cons

    That it took me so long to find this job!

    Advice to Management

    Continue the great model and strategy that Have created a winning environment!

    I have been working at Radio Systems Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    RSC does a lot of philanthropy, lots of opportunities for fun and beer at work. Yearly bonuses. Better than other companies I've worked for. Dogs in the office is a benefit you get nearly nowhere else. Some departments allow some ability to work-at-home.

    Cons

    Open office environment doesn't fit everyone's needs. Interruptions reduce productivity drastically. Catastrophic health insurance isn't what you would expect a company of this size to offer its employees. If you are in a "support" department rather than a revenue-producing department you are bound to be shorthanded and under-funded. Like most companies of this size and larger, there are plenty of political games. Compensation for many areas is quite low.

    Advice to Management

    If you really want the company to be built to last then allow then don't understaff and underfund the support teams that enable them to do their jobs. Ditch the open office concept and let each department do what works for them. Take care of the employees with better compensation to reduce the growing turnover. Give people a reason to stay.

    Pros

    Being a part of such a collaborative & positive team has been a great experience. There is so much knowledge to gain from any aspect of business. Radio Systems Corporation is made of up of some of the best out there.

    Cons

    To be honest, I've worked at several similar size companies and none compare to the vision and culture of Radio Systems. Where there are gaps, senior leadership takes a genuine interest in filling them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing! Continue to search for new ways to incentivize and motivate the team that is the driving force behind RSC!

    The company is financially successful.

    The open office environment (no walls anywhere).

    Advice to Management

    Tune the openness of the office environment to maximize productivity, per role, not to the malconceived notion that open is somehow best for each role.

    Pros

    No place is perfect, but this is a great place to work. Cool perks, such as dogs welcome in the office, casual dress code, and the random beer keg on a Friday afternoon to name a few.

    Cons

    Busy place, sometimes can get very hectic. Expectations are high. Not everyone is a good fit for the culture. Those who do fit can thrive, those that don't fit will struggle and have a very different impression.

    I worked at Radio Systems Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Casual office environment. Products for your pet. If they actually embodied the things that they claim they do perhaps it would be ok, but this company is deceptive and very dated in its practices and culture.

    Cons

    Terrible medical benefits
    Glass ceiling
    Poor pay
    Lack of training
    Lack of communication
    Deceptive management practices
    Lack of leadership
    Boast team-environment definitely not the case very cliquey in small offices

    Advice to Management

    Add some women to your executives maybe then women in the company could get promoted.
