    Pros

    Good money if you are a favorite within the company

    Cons

    Job is redundant and there are favorites within the company. Too much gossip

    Advice to Management

    Don't have favorites in the company. It leads to poor morale. Great morale for you but poor morale for other hard well meaning workers.

    I worked at Rawlings Group full-time

    Pros

    The physical location is very nice, new, clean and upscale. The location is also reverse-commenting from traffic, which is nice.

    Cons

    The managers are forced to micro-manage everything.

    Pros

    A collaborative work environment where critical thinking and problem-solving is rewarded. Great IT leadership, specifically our VPs.

    Cons

    Our company growth has resulted in some traffic issues, however, construction is underway to help alleviate.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on employee development and appreciation.

    I worked at Rawlings Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only pro is the paychecks were deposited on time and I was able to leave the office at 5pm ET. There are legitimately no other benefits to this extremely antiquated place. As another person provided
    in their feedback: it's 2017, not 1987. Your policies and practices are so obsolete you are hurting the company and top talent has no desire to work (or stay) there.

    Cons

    Where to start? Senior leadership doesn't make any decisions, everything is up to Mr. Rawlings. Sorry sir you are not God and in fact you're pretty old so time to delegate a bit. You CANNOT work remotely and MUST be in the office 8-5 every day with a mandatory 1 hour lunch. No flextime, a very crammed parking lot, and morale overall is just awful. So glad I escaped to a more sane and modern employer.

    Advice to Management

    None. Management makes no decisions. Everything is up to George Rawlings. Ask him.

    I have been working at Rawlings Group full-time

    Pros

    Nice coffee shop and Red Pepper in the Cafe

    Cons

    Hours 8-5. No other shifts. Too Many Cattle as we are called coming and going at the same time. Nightmare commute. Horrible lines leaving work. 70-100 plus cars just waiting to drive 50 minutes on I-71 to Louisville IF there is not a wreck. (ALL THE TIME)

    Advice to Management

    Management does not decide, Mr. Rawlings does. Even though he and his wife built the company and it has suceeded and grown for 40 years, your employees want to be able to be like our competitors that we are not allowed to go to now because of the non compete. Stagger the shifts! We are in LAGRANGE not downtown Louisville. Employees do not get home till and start home life till 6:00. This is not a life. Your main competitors do not give their employees golden hundcuffs.

    Pros

    Great hours, onsite cafe/coffee shop

    Cons

    Not enough vacation time or sick time

    Advice to Management

    I love my job, major drawbacks are benefits, and time off. The benefits have too many exclusions, cost too much, and vacation time is subpar to other companies.

    Pros

    They actually hire very nice people. Nice cafe and cafeteria. Very nice facility. Solid benefits. Well paying job.

    Cons

    While they hire nice people, you'll never know them because the place is ran like a prison. Very micromanaged. No flex time - strict is an understatement when it comes to your time there. Go to your cube and work, period. Morale is poor and management is unbelievably depressing to interact with. I've worked here for 4 years and have seen excessive turnover.

    Advice to Management

    It's 2017, not 1987..
