    I have been working at Sor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a newer employee (1 year), I have been very impressed with upper management. They are very respectful of the employees and solicit, listen to and value input from them. It is definitely a family atmosphere in the company.

    There is an emphasis on new product development and moving the company to the next level. I think this makes for a great business environment and will continue into the future. There are great things to come!

    Cons

    Like most smaller companies, you have to wear many hats and don't have the same tools as larger companies. May be a little culture shock to anyone moving from a larger company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, specially the value you put into the employees.

    I have been working at Sor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for professional growth. You have a chance to work on important projects much sooner than in a larger company. The pace of new product development is fast and exciting.

    Cons

    The multiple brands don't cooperate together as well as they could.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on new products and taking care of the customer

    "A small to midsize company with a culture that is changing away from being family oriented."

    Pros

    Currently, the company is small and is well structured with good hardworking employees that care about the customers, and each other. Prior to my departure, the company ensured that there was a good work life balance for all its employees.

    Cons

    Over the last year, the company has become more focused on very fast growth imposed by upper management. While growth is good, the focus on growing quickly has resulted in a mentality of "it’s all about the money". Such a mentality has already lead to an increase in stress on the employees, an attitude by the employees of looking out for themselves because the employer no longer is, and higher turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Continuing to focus on nothing but the money will lead to a culture where employees are not focused on the customers or the good of the company but only on themselves because they realize the company is no longer loyal to them.

    I have been working at Sor full-time

    Pros

    If you can independently start projects and drive change - this is a great place to work.

    Cons

    There is a tendency to manage by committee but that has all changed since a President/CEO has been hired.
