    I worked at Schaefer Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, and constant growth leads to stability in employment. Divisional leaders are fair, and go the extra mile for their employees and customers.

    Cons

    Corporate power struggle as the changing of the guard is about to happen, leads to a less than friendly work environment. Little room for advancement, and countrymen always overrides wisdom.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the divisional leaders

    Pros

    Flexible schedule allows a work-life balance. Schaefer is family-friendly and welcomes employees in a relaxed environment. No micro-management as long as you meet your deadlines. - 401k match, vacation days, personal days, employee events, HRA, continuing education for new software or professional licenses paid by employer - Management has an open door policy. Input and new ideas are appreciated. - Multi-cultural environment, good collaboration between employees and divisions.

    Cons

    As with every international company, the collaboration with sister companies can be challenging at times.

    Advice to Management

    Collaboration between divisions may still be improved. Continue to show employee appreciation.

    I have been working at Schaefer Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Very family oriented - Relaxed environment - 401K match - Benefits & paid holidays - Privately owned - Office lunches randomly throughout the year. - Not a micromanaged group, as long as your work is done correctly no one bothers you or stands over your shoulder.

    Cons

    - Barriers between divisions/departments but those are beginning to get smaller with the new CFO. - Some employees (including some management) have been with the company for so long they are hesitant to any change.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to let your employees advance within your division or company. Continue to support growth not only in your own department but in other departments as well.
    Continue to keep the small family office atmosphere as we grow, never lose touch of where we started.
