    I have been working at Walton Signage full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I really enjoy being a part of the Walton family and what Walton represents which is Integrity and delivering a remarkable customer experience. The teamwork that is within the company and the privilege to work with the best of the best. The freedom to create your own possibilities. Always being recognized for your contribution. Management really does care about your well being, it really is a family. The freedom to work...

    I have been working at Walton Signage full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Flexible work hours and ability to work from office or home.

    Cons

    No work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Rectify the culture of employees working long hours to keep up with increased business as a rule instead of an exception. More business should not mean more work on a long term basis.

    Bring back the free massages. :)

    I worked at Walton Signage full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I met some really nice people and learn to softwares in six months because of their transition

    Cons

    President of this company walks around like a pompous Hercules A Mr. Know it all and meanwhile I don't think he even knows what he's doing. People come and go and now I know why .No wonder they're in debt . You don't give 3 people's job on 1 person and expect to get it done overnight. That's okay I went onto bigger and better !

    Advice to Management

    Focus on treating your people better and they will work more diligently

    I worked at Walton Signage full-time

    Pros

    Some really good people in the company. Great being able to work remote.

    Cons

    The company’s culture is really declining due to the owner and presidents obsession with Landmark forum and coaching. Their first priority is the owners hobby as a Landmark coach and not the clients or business. People struggle to get work done because of all the “coaching” the owner wants to do. He calls it his “playground”. He can’t see this at all and has lost ALL objectivity. The company has not given employees...

    Advice to Management

    Gary Walton needs to get out of the way. They need a real President who is allowed to manage and knows how to manage. They need a CFO. Not one of Gary’s “friend”. Start giving bonuses again.

    I worked at Walton Signage

    Pros

    Some good talented people in support functions.

    Cons

    Sales people stay away at any cost. Don't be deceived by the overall Glassdoor rating. Check the trend up until April 2017 when HR "encouraged" current employees to write Glassdoor reviews. Sales people - Don't be tricked by the seemingly attractive compensation package and promises. You will bring in accounts and billings, but with the lag of commission payments to actual margins post invoice, you will not be around...

    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....

    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 for more than 6 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 for more than 2 years

    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!

    At Walton, it is important that we engage with our employees so that we can understand their point of view, their challenges, what’s working, what’s not and what they see is possible. We encourage all employees to let us know how we’re doing and the vast majority of that feedback ...
