    I have been working at Walton Signage full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I LOVE working at Walton. We work hard, but work creatively and collaboratively. It is the most amazing place to be everyday. The company invests in employees in big and small ways. It's a great organization.

    Cons

    The company is growing like crazy, so the pace and change is hard for some people to keep up with, but I LOVE it!

    Advice to Management

    Keep pursuing excellence...it's working.

    I worked at Walton Signage full-time

    Pros

    Other than the autonomy of being a remote employee and a few fringe benefits for sales people, there were not very many pros.

    Cons

    Landmark Worldwide centered business so get ready to go to this mandatory brain washing session for your weekend off AND begin speaking their language or you'll soon be let go. I personally left a six figure position after being recruited for a few months by Walton and took the chance. Unfortunately they don't train you, don't follow through with their promises and one day you'll just get a call and they've let you go. No reason why...you've done nothing wrong...just Gary and his minions have decided you're no longer on the team. If you don't like office drama, backstabbing, and the peeing on territory because you've come around then this isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    Let people choose if they want to go through a brain washing camp; don't lie to them; don't recruit people from gainful employment to just "try them out"; communicate openly and directly

    Pros

    Good benefits, modern and comfortable offices, entrepreneurial mind set.

    Cons

    Limited mobility. Talks a big game, but in reality most go getters are handcuffed. CEO has no true accountability to keep him on a focused course or from micro managing others.

    Advice to Management

    Empower leaders to really lead, don't just talk and then give no authority.
    Invest into to talkented people, not just Landmark, but in opportunity. Extend trust first, not distrust.

    I worked at Walton Signage full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They do several things for employees, quarterly BBQ's, some advanced education, the company has grown over the last 15 years.

    Cons

    In a single thought.....TURN OVER!!! My god, cannot keep managers there, and the ones they do keep are nothing but "Yes" men or women!! Not sure if the turnover is due to totally unrealistic expectations ( More of that Landmark Forum) or lack of definition of what the expectations actually are. Either way, the place's turnover is like most people change their socks!.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the upper management to take a good look in the mirror and ask why they can't keep anyone. The turnover is horrendous, and mostly likely for 2 reasons: 1) you have a group of managers there who will throw you under the bus in a minute and 2) The owner is a bright business man, but a sorry human being.

    I worked at Walton Signage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people there. Nice facilities in the corporate office. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Cult like atmosphere due to Landmark training. Sales Managers and sales personnel are used then discarded. 4 sales managers in less than a year and no national sales person has been there for even a year. Pretend to want to be a major player but are limited by Gary Walton and his personnel decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Gary Walton should let management run the company. Treat people loyally. You brought in great talent then hand cuffed them. Get rid of the mandatory Landmark!

    Pros

    We are given all the tools necessary to be successful employees. The little things the company does to show it's appreciation are what makes the company very special. The benefits are excellent. Very much an open door policy company wide, the financials are open and posted weekly.

    Cons

    More bonding opportunities as a whole are needed.

    Advice to Management

    In house training on new products, designs, manufacturing or installations.

    Pros

    The culture is fantastic!!! From healthy snacks and massages to a flexible vacation policy and personalized training sessions; Walton really does care for the employees. The CEO and COO always make sure to walk around and have face time with the employees. Many staff members have been promoted within the last year. There are always opportunities for advancement. Employees at Walton are encouraged to speak up, even if it isn't an easy conversation.

    Cons

    Some people can't make the cut. Walton demands an exceptional level of work from their staff. Many previous employees think since the culture is relaxed that their work can also be. However, don't be fooled. Only the highest caliber people stick around, so therefore the turnover has been greater in the past few years.

    Advice to Management

    Communication from upper management is sometimes slow to get to the rest of the staff. Management could do a better job keeping everyone informed of changes as they happen.

    Pros

    Walton Signage is one of the fastest growing companies in South Central Texas. They continue to stay on top of their game by adding some of the Top Talent in the industry. The big question is who wouldn't want to work with the Top Talent? Extremely nice office atmosphere and nice equipment. Centrally located in the San Antonio area. Great benefits, flexible schedule and great people.

    Cons

    If you cannot work in a fast pace environment then this is not the place for you. If you cannot accept change this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Great business plan, keep doing what you are doing!
