    Pros

    Great people, hard working company. Only ask for 40 hours, great events to share with family. Take great care of the people.

    Cons

    Takes commitment, need to dedicate 12-18 months to building your network to a position that you can be great for many years. Do you have the time?

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! We appreciate everything you do. Most complaints are obviously from former employees who couldn't cut it. Good attitude, attendance, and effort is all they ask. Sound like too much to ask for?

    Great atmosphere, wonderful people, team attitude, owner/managers care about employees. Have recommended many people to work here.

    Pros

    Where else can you work a true 40 hours and then go home. I leave at my scheduled time everyday and nobody says a word.....actually if I am 5 minutes late getting out of here I am encouraged to get going. A true work/life balance

    Cons

    Can't think of one single thing.....

    Advice to Management

    Consider an 8-5pm shift for sales

    Pros

    If you have a great work ethic but also like to have a lovely, fun work environment, United Shore is a great place to work. The Brilliant Ideas program allows all team members to contribute to continuous improvement. This ia a growing company that is taking market share from others based on technology improvements.

    Cons

    This is still a young company and some processes are still being created or refined. If you are used to every process being clearly defined, you may struggle a bit. If, however you don't mind change, this would be a good place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Try to listen a little more directly to people who are doing in the trenches.

    Pros

    This place is great. Full of great people. If you want to work hard and you care, you will do great. If you don't, you won't. To be the best, you need to surround yourself with people who are the best. Those who don't care to be the best and who don't work hard may not work out with this company (and are the ones who write the negative reviews). This place is full of opportunity but only if you want it!

    Cons

    Nothing bad to report. This place is so much better than anywhere else I've been that any negative isn't even worth talking about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Keep bringing in great people and making them even greater. Keep out the other kind!
