    I worked at Stewart, Weir & Co. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere sometimes, some nice people, nice offices, used to have a family atmosphere.

    Cons

    Its an old boys club - don't bother if you are female trying to advance your career into management. And unless you suck up to someone, you won't get anywhere. Its all about who you know there, and keeping your mouth shut. They have no whistleblower policy, so watch what you say. If you can keep your head down and shut up, you'll be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring family members; have a policy that does not allow Human Resources personnel or management to either be married to, or sleep with employees. Confidentiality is key. Think about your decisions before you jump into things. Make decisions based on sound business acumen, not irrationally reacting to things. Do what you say you will do (because you don't). Back your employees.
