    I worked at Suddath Companies full-time

    Pros

    The Company has a good health insurance plan as well other benefits. They also do great stuff when it come to employee appreciation.

    Cons

    The salary is joke and to get a raise it like 20 to 40 cent depending on the budget for each department. Overworked and too little pay

    Advice to Management

    Really need to be clear on what each job is and what they are to be in charge. Also 38 cent is not raise, it a back slap to the face after doing three jobs in one.

    I worked at Suddath Companies full-time

    Pros

    Free parking, breakfast and they do offer fun activities for employees.

    Cons

    Workers that put in hours do not get paid enough. Salaried managers who only work 25 hours a week get bonuses and praised for the little work that they do. Benefits are a joke, they will try to blame it on Obamacare but they're really looking out for the company and not the employee. Too much of a good old boy network. If you're young, you are treated as such and no room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Need too look at the marketplace. You will keep losing good talent unless you're ready to let go of mid level managers who are not managing.

    I worked at Suddath Companies part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I personally earned a lot of experience working for the company. If the opportunity arises they will entrust a lot of responsibility and tasks. It's known that during the summer time there is a lot of business so there is plenty to do.

    Cons

    Upper management is very political. Older management doesn't seem to understand change and how to advance. The various software programs that they use makes it difficult to communicate which causes the most problems. They need to advance and become more singular.

    Advice to Management

    Make it so that younger people will want to work there. Have a worthwhile internship program that will make it so that post-graduate students will want to continue working for you. Stop recycling employees and old business practices.

    Constant change in duties,responsibilities, team structure. Pay well below expectations. Unprofessional & favoritism runs rampant. High turnover.

    Put a plan in place and stick to it. Don't train, move, train, move, and then keep people employed just because you like them if they can't cut it.

    Pros

    Nice coworkers but nothing else can be said

    Cons

    Corporate culture is not worker friendly. Lots of layoffs and attitude toward remaining employees is that they should be happy to have a job. Keep dumping more and more on less and less.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending and blowing smoke. Own up to your faults

    Pros

    Family culture. Always looking to innovate and grow. Don't lose the close knit feeling and culture. The company's culture is so important.

    Cons

    Lots of changes right now. There are not really many negatives to list which is a huge compliment for a company that has been around a while.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the communication and transparency.

    Pros

    Great managers when came on board but they all are gone now. Loved how it used to be a family environment

    Cons

    Company has too many structural and managerial changes now and high risk of layoffs. Many employees in fear. Hopefully layoffs are done now.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the employees that helped with success
