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

    Pros

    The place is one where you are given a lot of freedom to make a contribution in the way you best see fit, as long as they see it fitting into the overall picture. Quite a bit of professional development built into the marketing/product manufacturing function.

    Cons

    Ownership has changed and the culture seems to have changed a little bit away from the personal feel it once had. This may give way to better opportunity with the new ownership and growth opportunities outside of the company proper.

    Advice to Management

    Pay is mediocre on a competitive basis. I think that the longevity of people in several key positions has driven this as they have not been aware of their value in the market and allow the company to keep salaries down.

    I have been working at Ruskin Company full-time

    Pros

    The overall work environment is very laid back and low stress.

    Cons

    The compensation is low based on industry averages and advancement opportunities are close to non-existent. Benefits are pretty standard. Another review mentioned that the company promotes based on years of service rather than merit and it's absolutely true.

    Advice to Management

    Bring the company into the 21st century. Probably 1/4 to 1/3 of the staff at the corporate headquarters could be laid off if 6 months are spent meaningfully developing software to automate most of the work procedures. Hold employees accountable when they perform poor work, that includes upper level managers. Pay competitive wages and bring on more skilled employees while weeding out bad ones.
