Pros
Cons
  • Cedar Rapids is a little far away from most of my family and is also far away from most of its nearest cultural centers (besides Iowa City) (in 118 reviews)

  • I'd rather be an intern than full time as there doesn't seem to be much of a work/life balance once you're hired full time (in 22 reviews)

    Pros

    Senior leadership has strong emphasis on strategy and implementing it in a logical manner across businesses. Leader culture is different from most other peers and competitors, emphasizes respect for subordinates, and creating paths to advancement with good processes for high potential individuals. Many employees come here from those competitors and remark on the positive difference.

    Cons

    Size of the business at ~$5B sales places it in a more challenging space -- need to comply with processes and scale of business model of much larger organizations and competitors. The organic and inorganic growth strategies extremely important.

    Advice to Management

    A steady and profitable player for many years, we are sometimes conservative in how we declare our performance to the analysts. More assertive investor comm will help.

    Pros

    Pay and BEnefits generally comparable to Industry
    Worked with smart and capable people

    Cons

    Employee pay/benefits and any other discretionary budget will be sacrificed to meet earning statements to Wall Street
    Process driven culture eliminates flexibility to respond to a customer quickly
    Risk aversion impacts ability to be cost competitive
    Laid off employees are immediately treated like an outcast, no respect for years of company loyalty
    Leadership doesn't understand niche markets

    Advice to Management

    Corporate motto is "building trust everyday". Nice words but actions frequently show that it is superficial vice foundational.
